[nfbwatlk] FW: [Trainer-talk] Windows 7 questions

In Windows 7, you have several programs on the task bar by default, such as
Internet Explorer. You can go to the task bar with Windows with T to view
the programs already there. By default I believe the programs are Internet
Explorer, Windows Explorer (or My Computer), and Windows Media Player. You
can change these programs as well as add new ones. I bring this up because
often you can use the keystroke of Windows with alpha numeric 1 to launch
Internet Explorer, and the other numbers with the windows key to launch
other programs, depending on where the program is on the order sequence. For
instance, for some reason I wasn't able to set my JAWS hotkey for JAWS 13 as
Control Alt J. So I aded JAWS to the task bar. Now, if I need to load JAWS,
I use Windows with alpha numeric 6.

To add a program to the task bar, find the program in the start menu, all
programs area, or on the desktop, and hit the Applications key. If you
scroll down you will find an entry to Add this program to the Task Bar, or
if you want to remove something that is already added, the entry will say
remove from task bar.

Windows 7 is very different from Windows XP, but over time, you will grow to
enjoy it. For more on Windows 7, you may wish to check out Cathy Anne's free
