1. I think you mean it's a .csv file and the easiest way to import the file into your Favorites is to name the file "bookmark.csv" and place it in the default "My Documents" folder for your username. There should be no requirement to open the folder as the location of the import file will be correct. The use of any other name or location will require a change when you get to importing the file to Favorites.
2. To "Show All Files" in WinXP, RIGHT click on the Start button, choose "Explore" from the menu. When that loads, click on the "Tools" menu in the upper left, choose "Folder Options". When that loads, click on the "View" button and place a dot/tick in "Show Hidden Files and Folder" and UNCHECK the box next to "Hide Protected Operating System Files". You may also choose to UNCHECK the "Hide known file extensions" option. Click on "Apply", then OK, if you've made any changes.
3. Which deskop "Task Bar" are you referring to? The "Quicklaunch" bar at the bottom left? If so, you'll need to enable the Quicklaunch bar by RIGHT clicking on the bottom taskbar, choose "Toolbars", then select "Quicklaunch". Once that's enabled, you should be able drag and drop shortcuts to it.
Hope this helps.
I have printed and read the procedure from MS. It's saved as a cvs file. It's being transfered from a ME computer to XP via a CD. I have used a floppy as well. XP never finds it. It's shown when I open in my doccuments as a MS Word file. When I open my docs from the import feature it only shows folders, not any text files. So I created a folder. It shows the folder but nothing is there. It is however if I open it direct without using the import feature. What to do?
Next problem, How do you get the system to expand programs? As in show all files and folders. It will with some but not all.
Last but not least I want to put shortcuts on the desk top task bar. I tried the drap and drop but it doesn't allow it. If the program would put one there no problem, but rarely they do.
Thanks, I've only had this for a day, so newer isn't necessiarly better. A lot of difference's.
Maybe there is a website that shows little tricks to make it more user friendly?
