Windows Vista desktop question

10 posts in this topic

I bought a new laptop the other night.

It's got Windows Vista Home Premium.

I was wondering if there's a setting on the desktop so the icons will change to whatever HSOforum they're a shortcut for.

On my XP based computers, I've got the HSO icon for the FM shortcut.

Is there a setting I can change, or am I going to be looking at 10-12 "e" icons?

Mine do that automatically so I haven't needed to find a solution to that.

Not sure, I don't really use shortcuts like that. You can find a lot of those answers if you go to microsoft dot com/support though.

What I did was just go to the HSOforum and right-click and save a small picture that identifies the HSOforum and you can change the icon to that picture. It might take a little trial and error.

I honestly have never known where those icons come from. For example, my link to this site in my favorites folder has an icon that is a black square with the red letters HSO inside. I have assumed that the HSOforum installed the icon to my system when I visited or when I created the link in my favorites folder.

I never shut down my browser grin

I currently have 10 tabs (sites) open.

That's pretty much what I do dtro. I also have the Comcast tool bar installed. You can put shortcuts on there and FM is the first on on there. You gotta love IE 7 though with the tabs so you don't have 20 browsers open.

I have not used IE for a long time. I like FireFox much better for tabbed browsing. IEs tabbed browsing seems too clunky to me.

Try doing a right-click on a blank area of the desktop, then click view, and then select classic.

    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 2015 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
    • Angels Envy is a real nice sipper but a little bit pricey. Then again I have never met a bourbon I hated....just did not like it as much as others
    • Hey Dotch, that your avanti parked at Heartland Tire on south broadway and 28th in Rochester?   
    • Like the Evan Williams too, especially when watching the $. Don't remember even hearing of the other. 
    • There is libertainism and there is the Libertarian Party.  One has some good points and the Party is full of whackos.   
    • Evan Williams, black label, is my regular whiskey.    It is quite good and a tremendous value.   Haven't heard of the other one. 
    • While they may look complicated and scary to work with, it is not too difficult. A little practice and creativity. First pic is done by means of hand tossing (or little different pattern is by spray bottle) xylene or denatured alcohol onto epoxy. Sticks, leaf blowers/hairdryers, back rolling/ Swedish trowels all give a certain pattern. You can see in pic 2 back rolling can give an acid stain appearance. Pic 3 is blown. Just a bummer product price is not super friendly. However epoxy can take quite a beating, including acids.
