Hi Franklin,

I agree. As in everything computers, there are multiple ways to accomplish
the same task.

My menus have shortcuts to these documents also.

Start -> My Menus -> My Documents -> {todo.ppt, bookmarks.xls, words.doc,
contacts.txt, etc.}

Interestingly, have you noticed the silly Microsoftism which requires the
key to have an "exe" on it even though it has nothing to do with
executables? Classic Microsoft.

I was writing code well before Microsoft ever existed and we did it well in
those days. We may have used slide rules, but we flowcharted everything and
we spent countless hours making our assembly code efficient. We didn't jump
about unless absolutely necessary and we spent time structuring the code to
be sequential and to be frugal with memory.

This approach to organizing our Windows computers is not at all different.
It's the ONLY way to manage a PC.

To prove the point, may I ask you a question?
----> Have you ever needed the "Search" button in Windows? <----
I don't and nobody who follows my lead does either.
