Was this ever completely resolved?
I told someone it was a home computer and I have been the only one to ever use it.

Okay I didn't explain how to get to my picture below. (post #30) That was my short sightedness. I shouldn't of took so much for grant it.

Lets see if I can correct my self.
Right click on the Start Orb (low left corner of desktop) and then select Open Windows Explorer and you should see this with out the arrow I put on it.



Dick if you get suggestions from other member and do not understand how to complete the suggestions just ask for a little more help. We will give as much instruction as needed. We do want to help.

We do not know the skill levels of every member or how much time they have spent learning Windows 7.
