...in Windows 7.

"7" just doesn't fit the way my brain, and previous versions of Explorer, works.

Is there any way to make 7 look/act like XP in the way directories and files are organized/displayed?

Welcome to my world..I give the guy credit..I mean almsost 90 and he pretty much is the email/web thing and that is it..but oh how he gets confused...and we have to re-adjust our brains from PC to Apple..and I did have some edumacation in Apple...but it is a learning curve...

The recent time was being called down to help with some problem with a email he got from a friend with a word doc to it...and for some reason the dingbat sent him his doc n some file called CGZB or some version of a zip thing and he has no unzip program on the machine.

I told him to just tell the person to resend...

Did he? no...did not want to hurt her feelings??


Whaaaaaaat?

of course he never gets rid of emails...his inbox has over 1009 items..

yes 1 0 0 9

my tech support time and ability is free but....
