Documents, thumb drive, My Computer WHERE ARE THEY????
I can't find anything in Vista. I want a folder view where I can see what's
in my thumb drive and drag it over to a folder in Documents. XP made it so
easy to see where everything was in Documents and My Computer to make it easy
to transfer files to external drives and CD. I finally found a way to see
what's on an thumb drive, but you have to open three windows to try to
transfer a file from there to documents. THIS IS NOT PROGRESS. Not only is
Vista 6 times slower than XP (with twice as much RAM as my XP), a person
can't FIND anything, transfer anything, or --on another subject-- SCAN
ANYTHING because there's no SCANNER WIZARD anymore. I feel like I've bought
a very expensive paperweight.

Are there any work arounds for easy viewing??

In the explorer window, on the hand side, click on the small arrow at the
bottom next to the word folders. Thsi brings up a folder tree. Is this what
you mean?
