Where's the undo?

by bevg In reply to BG Notes

<p>You know you've had too much computer time when you make a mistake in real life and your first instinct is "undo!" </p>
<p>Hey, this is NOT a joke. I've had several instances in recent months when I did something in error (like putting an item of clothing in the trash can instead of the laundry hamper), and my first thought was "Undo!"</p>

Where's the undo?

by Beth Blakely In reply to Where's the undo?

I totally understand. I've often wished for an Undo command for my life. There's a new movie coming out about a guy who has a remote control for his life... I need one of those. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389860/)<br /><br />Have you ever answered the phone like you're at work? "TechRepublic, this is Beth!"

"Saved" searches (this is NOT religious!)

by bevg In reply to BG Notes

<p>Okay. My first complaint is that when I use the Windows search utility, "Look in:" automatically defaults to the START MENU.</p>
<p><img alt="Windows 'search companion' dialog box" src="file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/bgraham/Desktop/New%20Folder" /></p>
<p>Who <strong><u>ever</u> </strong>needed to look for a file in the start menu???? Don't 99 percent of us search in a DOCUMENT location ?? At least those of us who primarily create documents? (I know there are people who might primarily look for system files and programs; I'll allow that.) </p>
<p>So, I thought I had an idea yesterday. I would save the search on my desktop with the location specified as 'My Documents.' Then I could just click the icon on my desktop and already have the location specified (and possibly other parameters like date and file type). Brilliant, right? Saves an extra click or two. </p>
<p>Well, I saved the search, an easy thing to do, but when I opened it again, it had defaulted back to "Start Menu." What's the problem, Microsoft? Why won't it save all the parameters I put in the search?</p>
