    Default Windows 7

    What a change!! I bought a New Laptop with it and am having to learn where everything is..

    I love the new features..sticky notes, snip/snap, and gadgets, but haven't installed any photos, kits or pse on it... afraid where they may go and that I can't find them.

    anyone else have the windows 7 ??? Any suggestions on setting up files that you can find.??

    I was thinking about you and Windows 7! I have a Mac and can't help you, but I'm so glad you like it so far.

    I am also a Mac user, but I understand that the search capabilities in Windows 7 are pretty good. If you couldn't find PSE, you could use Explorer's search to find it again. If your kits are on an EHD, you should just be able to plug it in on the new computer. They don't require installation.

    I have windows 7! Hubby installed it a few days ago. But I am afraid I don't understand your question. When you download something like from 4shared, you can't figure out where it ends up? Mine always go to my desktop or if I don't tell it to go to my desktop I usually find it in my "downloads" file. I don't know how your computer is set up but this is how I find my downloads folder. I go to the C drive then go to "Users" then I find my name (cause I have it set up that I am a user and I have one set up for hubby to be a user too) and then under my name there is a folder called "downloads". I sure hope that helped you out.

    I'm still having trouble with "moving" files.. They went to the download area, then when I moved it to my Scrapbook file and deleted the download(original) file, Opps!! it all disappeared!!

    I retreived it from the trash bin, but now to figure out how NOT to fill up the download area. Yes I do go overboard when I'm blog hoppin..

    Just be sure you cut and paste and not copy and paste and don't just drag and drop.
