Installation successful!

Well, I got Windows 7 installed and it's up and running like a charm! I love way more than Vista, and get this: my old Windows Movie Maker 6 folder and file was saved in windows.old! How great is that? I also imported the old Windows Mail from Vista too. I love Windows 7!!!
Oh, and how do you put the recycle bin into Windows Explorer? I liked it there.

Hello Charley,

Unfortunately the Recycle Bin has been removed from the Navigation Pane in Windows Explorer by default, but you can do this in my post below to have it or pin it to the taskbar if you like.

I must be seeing things, again.

Note, it is not visible on my desktop, but listed under desktop in Explorer.

Ah, you are correct Antman. You have to set the Navigation Pane to Show All Folders before the Recycle Bin shows up in it.

I am on Vicodin while waiting for surgery. I feel good, but am having difficulty thinking in depth. Thank you Brink for knowing why the discrepancy presented.

WII Master 64,

Congrats with your successfully installation of Windows 7!

One small point, you can update your SPECS to reflect the fact you are now running Windows 7. ;-)

Best regards,

Thanks guys! And I was going to update my specs today because I finally got through installing Windows 7 and setting it up around 10:30 last night. Let me tell you, DriverMax is a life saver! One more question, in my device manager, there is this section called "other devices" and under it has this thing called coprocessor with an explanation point next to it. I don't remember it being there in Vista, and under processors, it says both drivers are working properly. What's wrong with it?
