Right on, Irene! That's exactly it. I've even been through the options in the quick access toolbar before and tried this but it didn't seem to work. Maybe one of the Windows updates corrected...

Thanks for the reply, stevecrest. I never did get a solution. I already know about the red lines and I'm not impressed since they are never consistent or accurate. You can have a red line when two...

Thanks for the reply, sunrisecc. SP1 didn't correct this issue. I've also kept up with updates along the way so MS evidently doesn't have a fix yet. I was hoping to find a user-end correction.

I'm having a similar problem with my Toshiba Laptop, W7Pro, 2 external monitors. If the display is set to turn off before going to sleep, it won't come back. If it's set to turn off at the same time...

Thanks, GEWB but I already tried that. It doesn't do anything that I can tell. At least, it doesn't "snap to" anything. Grid lines aren't the point, either since I want to snap to all objects or...

Thanks for the link. What they're discussing in the 2007 and 2010 versions of Publisher apparently doesn't exist in my version of Publisher 2010 (version 14.0.5128.5000).

I have checked these...

Publisher 2010 - Snap To

In my 2003 version of Publisher, when I moved or drew something, I could choose to have it snap to layout guides, the ruler or other items. I can't figure out how to do this in Publisher 2010. Just...

Forum for MS Ofice 2010?

My apologies for this post, but I can't find a forum for Office 2010. I'm not able to figure out a simple issue in Publisher and MS Help is convoluted and useless. Does anyone know if there's a forum...

Bongo, that's it. I really appreciate it. As I learn more about W7, I like it more. Everything is there if you know where to look. Many thanks.

Most Recently Accessed Files

I went directly from XP to Windows 7.

One of the options on the XP start menu was "Documents" which listed "My Documents" and "My Pictures" at the top (never used). Below that was the 10 most...

OK, Brink! That's the answer. Not only can you make a shortcut, but you can choose the browser to open in. Your tutorial is very clear (as they all are). This opens up other possibilities with making...

Hi Brink,

I see your shortcut is an .exe file. That's handled differently than a url. The OS must read the target and treat it accordingly. This must be why the url shortcut can only be pinned to...

Thanks, Bongo. That hadn't occurred to me. At your suggestion, I tried it but with the shortcut in my Documents, there doesn't seem to be an option to pin it to the Taskbar. It was a very good...

Thanks for the link, Brink. I already figured that much out, though. Step 5 is deceiving:

"5. Move the shortcut to where you like for easy use."

As best I can determine, you can move it...

Create icon to url on taskbar

I've been trying to create shortcuts on my taskbar to a couple of specific urls. This was extremely easy in XP. I won't tell you what I think of Windows 7 for this simple task.

Greg, I was given the choice to manually put in the key if I had it, which I didn't, or to have the upgrade automatically retrieve the key. Now that I think about it, would that mean MS uses the same...
