i just figured out something cool by playing around. when you double click on folders in windows xp, it opens the folder. personally i like it to open the folder with the explore view. apparently it’s quite easy to change that.
- Select Folder Options from the Tools menu in My Computer or Explorer, and click the File Types tab.
- Select Folder file type
- Hit the Advanced button
- In the new selection, you will see a list of actions associated with it. Select explore and the Set Default button
- Save settings and exit out of all of the screens
- double click on a folder and see
i’ve heard about tweak UI – a free microsoft powertool for a while but never tried it out. i did today and there are two things i was able to customize that made my day. first i was able to choose which application it will use to view source in internet explorer. i was able to use my favorite text editor instead of the crappy notepad. another thing i didn’t know it could customize is the right click -> new -> list.
you may change this by unselecting the ones you don’t want in the templates section under tweak UI
i originally installed it to get rid of the windows log on screen. like in windows xp even if you don’t set a password, it will still either show you the welcome screen or prompt you to enter your password whenever you turn it on. it annoys me. there is an autologon setting you may change with tweak UI but it doesn’t work well. it seems to be reset as soon as you choose to logout or i’m missing something i think i will go with solution one suggested here.
we finally got a Wii yesterday! andy got up at 4:30 to get in line in toys r us to get it for me. i was so touched. he never forgot that was the birthday gift i wanted and never gave up trying. it was a month late but nevertheless a huge surprise. he also got a second controller and two nunchuks. not knowing that the wii came with a nunchuk, we got an extra one. so i’m selling it on ebay
i thought i heard the garage door open early morning yesterday but was too tired/sick to get up & check. andy came in around 9:30 to bring me breakfast and a huge bag from toys r us. i couldn’t believe it. how sweet was that! i am still sick and was coughing really hard but i couldn’t resist trying out the wii. we love the boxing and tennis game. the boxing game really gets me going. i get sweaty only after 3 rounds. amazing! i must be playing it hard too coz i beat andy every time we tried LOL . he also bought the wii zelda game. i was so wore out afterwards and went to bed at 6pm.
now i’m awake and my arms are so sore and totally want to do boxing again LMAO
