Please update the footnote.
Roncerr and GregS have really said it all... thanks guys, the tutorial lives on!
However, since I'm the "3rd Musketeer
, and for the sake of completeness, this is the full text of Footnote 4, which does actually say click OK:
- Go to: Start Orb ==> Computer ==> C: Drive ==> Program Files ==> Open: Windows Mail ==> Top Task Bar ==> Tools ==> Drop down menu ==> Folder Options ==> View Tab
- Dot: Show hidden files, folders...
- Untick: Hide empty drives... Hide extensions... Hide protected operating...
- In response to the warning click: Yes ==> Apply ==> OK.
- After all the steps are done, restore default view settings.
1. This footnote is written in the context of Step 3 of the Turorial, in which you are working in the Windows Mail
folder. And this is the folder you'll need open in the next step to create the shortcut to the desktop once you've made WinMail.exe
visible. So that's why the Control Panel option was not chosen.
2. It is written for people like myself who are not so computer literate, and need to have it spelled out step by step. And that's exactly why a red lettered warning was placed in that step leading to the footnote, which you missed and to which I alerted you a few posts back. Off topic
: Hey Greg, thanks for the heads up on that Run box command to show folder options. I didn't know about that, and it's a great little shortcut.
