    Thanks Emma.
    I see your State as KS, about 20 years ago I bought a house in Russell, Kansas
    and lived there for 3 years then sold the house. I liked it there. Geographically, it is about in the center of the US. It was a very nice place to live. Not exactly a short run to get to Denver.
    My job used to be located out of Kansas City.

    Geez, I now have 4 Operating Systems on separate SSD's - 7, 8, 8.1, 10.
    The only reason I don't do Linux is that it is not compatible with Silverlight for Netflix.
    Not really interested in virtual systems or Windows on Linux stuff.

    This old menu from 10 years ago works but still prefer the start screen of 8.0 which uses search immersion.

    nt62, I am tired of Kansas and would like to relocate to an area where there are hills and trees.

    I thought I was pretty good on the computer until I visited here. I find it interesting, but have trouble with the terminology. I had a Cox tech tell me I was more knowledgeable about the PC than anyone he had met in my age bracket. He must not have met many old people.

    Nuthin special (yet) after clean installing with the proper size iso!
    Disappointed not seeing 'Pin to Start List' option so I got rid of Start and stuffed everything in Quick Launch.

    Nice one blackroseMD1

    New one for today, decided to get back into a little rain meter action. Usually I would do a full theme with a new task bar or a dock but I'm holding off on that until I get the final version of win 10.
    Rain meter skin is elegance 2

    Why is it that if we're old(er) we're put into the category of, "You sure do know a lot about computers for your age bracket."? Do they think we get dumber as we age or what!?

    I'm sitting in my office recliner yelling at my computer! Does that count?
