WHen I got VIsta, I jsut started using it. None of this studying business for me, no sir. SO of course, I have no idea where many functions are or how to use so many of the new features (or even what they are). I find them by chance or necessity or just osmosis.
One thing I never really knew was what happened to the Run command. I figured maybe they decided it was a bad idea because it used to be up front and center in XP and earlier version fo windows
But I knew where the “Command Prompt” was in Vista, so I never bothered looking for the Run option.
Just now I was looking for the Magnifier function – I know I saw it once (again, by accident), so I opened up the start menu, then accessories, and what did I notice? My old friend “Run”!
So back to the Magnifier. I found it easily enough using the Search (see I know a few things in Vista), but that still didn’t tell me where in the menu it lives. But I also am familiar with one of my favorite little Vista utilities, the “Open File Location” option in the context menu, which helped me see that the Magnifier is in Ease of Access
Now, if only I could remember what I wanted the Magnifier for to begin with!
