That is why I posted, but not to take sides.

Everyone took off with a like - dis-like attitude towards 7, but after I reached the 108th post and no one answered dabber's question on how to streamline his access to his websites in the 29th post, I decided to try and help.

I think the title of the thread may have put some folks on the defense.

Personally, I think the overall mission of our forum is to help and enlighten those with problems, sometimes personalities clash but I have seen many of these threads end with a

satisfied customer after getting the top notch help that Seven Forums is well known for.

There used to be one of these threads going almost continually, some were just to vent until they realized what a great OS Windows 7 is and just needed some helpful guidance with their frustrations.

The ones that didn't want to listen or accept any offers of help with their frustrations didn't stick around long anyway.

I never said you didn't want to learn it was a statement at best don't read to deep into what was said to you like before it is an Opinion and everyone is entitled to one
Far as my Dad goes and my thinking there is nothing he can do about that im an Individual and a free thinker he doesn't have to like it but he does have to accept it
I was merely correcting the impression that your comment might have given some people. That is that you thought not liking Windows 7 was an age thing and that people didn't wish to learn how to use it. Neither is true in my case.
You are entitled to an opinion. Everyone is. It's a free world; you can say what you like (as long as it isn't libellous). Of course others said the same as you, in the same way that many people agreed with me about not liking to use Windows 7. Oh, did you miss those?
But unless you indicate that what you are saying is "just a statement", or tongue in cheeek or whatever - such as by adding a "wink" Emoticon : - how can people be sure you aren't aiming your comment at someone in particular?
I'm not sure whether your comment "he doesn't have to like it but he does have to accept it " was one of those occasions where a "wink" Emoticon was appropriate or not. I'm going to assume it was and that you chose the "cool" Emoticon instead.

In windows 7 shift key is your friend as it will give you a non truncated list of options upon right clicking different things, I personally Move everything off of my C drive and on to my D drive as far as files and user folders go, I also add my D storage drive to the index locations in windows 7. I personally take a diferent route in to my user folders bypassing the library. If you add default icons to your desktop then you can simple click the User folder there and then click on videos or whatever there and you wont be in libraries, You can also make a shortcut to the user folders bypassing the library anywhere you want even on the start menu. Just pin them.
Thanks for that, thebudman. I'll copy it, print it off, and study it carefully.
Do I get the impression that you don't, in fact, use the Libraries? Others have told me how to do that, suggesting they may not either. Makes you wonder why Microsoft bothered creating them.

Your name calling isn't helping anyone, leave the thread if you don't like it.

See the two posts above from dabber, he is still listening and trying.

Hopefully not for good, we are the top Windows 7 help forum.

A positive outcome in a thread like this would show exactly why we are.

There are many who know this place does not accept failure as an option.

In past years there was one of these threads going almost all the time. I think they caught a lot of attention because most were belligerently titled. Some had OP's that came around, others only wanted to vent.

The funniest were the ones who thought we were Microsoft. It felt like we were in the Progresso soup ad with the caller convinced he was talking with Grandma. "Yes, Ballmer's stepped out for a minute but we'll be sure to give him the message. You have a nice day."

I always posted the Dart and Lexus because I thought it an exact analogy, although few "got it." Two years later the once-muscled Dart looks even older, almost fragile now. XP can't get it up to install on most new PC's.

I think in spite of their spite the OP's learn some, at least pick up how much Windows 7 is loved here. We're of course baffled how they miss the perfection, like some tech philistine.

What it largely comes down to is many people have used the old xp for so long they don't remember back when they first got it and had to learn a few things.
So they bash 7 because they have to learn a few things.
This thread seems to have gone on largely past it's usefulness. That's what I was driving at.
