Frankly, on any computer I have ever had, it has been possible to open the document window showing the desired item, reduce it in size so that part of the desktop shows, and just drag it from one window to the other. I do it all the time.
Well, the monitor is a Samsung -- same brand as the camera that just crapped out on me.
Anyway, I finally managed to place an icon on the desktop for the document. Here is how I did it:
Go to Search in the Start menu. Search for the document When it's found, right-click on the Search result Choose "create shortcut" from the drop-down menu You will get a windows that says, "Windows cannot create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?" Say "yes".
I'm sure this is going all the way around the mulberry bush to get the shortcut on the desktop, but at least it worked.
Okay, I've got another one. This is really driving me crazy. As long as I've had a computer, it was set to show the documents as thumbnails when the little window for browsing opened. Then a "friend" reset that because it was "correct" his way. Grrrrrrr.
Now, when I want to host a picture for instance, the browsing window always opens in Details. Yes, I can click on the Thumbnails option, but I don't want to do that -- I want it to open in Thumbnails automatically and can't figure out how to get it to do that.
Someone help please, or I'm going to be testy, which we all know is not the usual me.
When you're in the window you want, go to an empty space and right-click to get the 'view' option -- this will propose details, thumbnails, miniatures, etc. Choose the one you want and everything in that window will obey and stay that way the next time you open it.
(I just learned this when they screwed up all of our new computers at the office last week so now I can pretend to be inteligant.)
