Hi smile
I am now speaking from my new Win7 machine and rah what a beastie !!

Still getting used to it of course .... things are SO well tucked away in Win7 .... but I'm sure I'll find them all some day wink

Mozilla Thunderbird is my new email programme and it's not too bad at all.
[Obviously I'm still in the learning curve on that, as well.]

I've not had time to try any games yet but hopefully a nice treat to come with those.

Anyway, wish me luck folks - and please be prepared for some probably very stupid questions redface

Cheers.

Mad grin

Fire away with questions, Mad! I always suggest that people click on Help and Support in the Start Menu and watch some of the videos and tutorials there. One of the handiest things is the "library." It keeps all your documents, photos, videos and music in one place. It should already be in your taskbar and looks like a file folder.

Have fun! Get out that Witcher game and get playing!

No such thing as a stupid question, Mad. Just ignorant ones, which I ask often.

Having had Win7 for about a year now I absolutely love it and find it so much more convenient than XP thumbsup I too asked (what seems now)some stupid questions at first but really I got used to it very quickly and Yes I did watch the videos several times and found them very useful.

Try using the Start Search to find things. It can find all sorts of things.

And congratulations on your new computer, Mad.

Thanks, all - and I'll bear that in mind, Jenny100 thumbsup

Can you now play Morrowind with that mod set at max??

I've not had time to try any games yet crazy

Are you now off bread and water for your diet?

Not at all !! Got to replenish the savings I "stole" to pay for the new machine lol

I'm looking forward to your comments on the speed and performance of your new system as well as any observations on how well your games now play in Win 7.

Well I can say right away that this new machine's speed and performance is outstanding. And once I do install a game I'll certainly let you know how it goes laugh

EDIT :
Installed The Last Testament of Sherlock and it plays like a dream with beautiful graphics bravo

[I just need to find where the saved games are and I've posted separately about that.]


Cheers.

Mad wave

Yes, I feel I am doing quite well now, thank you, Kaki's Sister - with normal operating stuff happydance

And with the "save game" searching I've been doing (over on the Adventure Board) I've got more acquainted with Win7 in two days than I would ever have thought possible rotfl

Good for you Mad. I'm impressed! I'm still working on an XP computer and dread going to a new operating system. I'm getting to old to keep up with all the changes!

My 9 old WIN XP machine has never functioned better than it does today. It still performs like it was new. (upgraded throughout the years, it has been also). I simply refuse to thrown something old which functions quite well simply because it is outdated and old. [I had to replace my TV this summer since it really wasn't functioning properly anaymore, but then I had, the tv, since 1998!).
