I am getting a lot of mail about this thread, many of the members are coming up with ideas to help. You have many unseen friends here.
Ken C suggested this
Taskbar Auto-hide - Turn On or Off

Get that taskbar out of the way and make more room.

The taskbar becomes visible when needed. Removing the taskbar should make more space availble when you want to click on buttons.

The problem here coco, is that you want big fonts, which take up a lot of room. Something has to be moved to give you the fonts. In this case it is the buttons that you want. Bottom line, there is only so much space, you cannot have big fonts and have everything show in the same way.

A bigger screen would help. Friday, ask for a demonstration so that you can see if it helps.

Thats the thing XP is not Windows 7, they behave differently. This is what I suggest, take the rest of the night, think about everything you do not like and write it down. When you go to the store tomorrow, be sure to ask about all that you have listed. Anything not understood we will work on it together.

A Few Questions
I've used Windows Media Center a couple times and like the look and feel and would use it if I had a couple of these things. 1. Is it possible to skin? 2. Is there a way to sync free tv shows and movies to it, or something along those lines? Thanks. ~Joshua~
