Shortcut to Desktop on Win2K Computer?
I'd sure be grateful if someone reading this could explain to me (or remind me?) how to create a shortcut on my Windows 7 desktop, that would open up a separate window displaying the contents of the desktop on another computer running Windows XP or Windows 2000.
I have to admit that in my old age my memory and cognitive skills are on the wane and I do have trouble learning new things these days (and just as much trouble remembering the old things I used to know).
I'm an old guy, disabled by worsening chronic illnesses, and scraping by on Social Security, so I have to rely on hand-me-down hardware and software.
I've been playing around with computers since the 80s, back when when I used the CP/M and MS DOS operating systems.
I now have a bunch of old PCs and laptops running Windows XP & Windows 2000 hooked up to a home network.
Last summer I received and old PC running Windows 7 and have to confess that even after months of trying to figure it out, that Windows 7 GUI still has me utterly baffled.
On all my other computers I have a shortcut on each of their desktops that I can click on to "see" the contents of the desktops on any of the other computers in my network.
But when I've tried to create such shortcuts on the Windows 7 computer, instead of opening a separate Window on the Win 7 desktop which shows me the contents of the desktop of one of my XP or 2K computers, it just jumps me back to the Windows Explorer.
