Thanks for the tips!  No, I didn't know these.

But still, yuccchhhh!  I think MS has one heck of a
lot to learn about usability.  But then again, I
suppose a monopoly really doesn't have to worry

Now another question:  Where's the <Windows> key on
my keyboard?  No, I'm not giving up my old-style PC
keyboard.  Never!
