Flame, your Desktop is there to make navigating easier. Not to keep it empty.  :P

It's easy for me  ;D  All my programs are in the start Menu, which I find easier to access, and all of my files are in a VERY organized folder... That would be the Games FYI folder on the desktop.

Raptor:

"Library Books" is a misnomer. Probably should be "Tech Help". It opens a folder containing compiled help files from wherever I can grab them. These much overlooked files not only have great info, most times they have examples that can be cut and pasted into my existing code.

I also understand Microsoft has free software you can use to create your own.

After many years in IT, and still hunting and pecking on the keyboard, these files are a great timesaver.

Help files can be found at:

http://htmlhelp.berlios.de/books/chm.php

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/default.mspx

I find them to be a great way to evaluate programming tools before actually downloading the entire application. Also this way there are no registry entries to deal with.

You probably have a great many CHM files on your own system, since Microsoft uses them as the source of it's Help and Support System.

Minor update. Increased font size and changed background.

(You'll love this one, Sidewinder..)

Two Thumbs Up, Raptor. You're right, one never outgrows the doomsday machine.
