[access-uk] Re: VISTA ready to go

Hi again George.

Ran and set up the Easy Transfer system, but ended up with double mail in my new computer. I had a look at Accounts and I do seem to have 2 under Andy Logue in there. Will it be okay to simply delete one of these, or perhaps, not include it by unchecking the box within Properties?

Best wishes.

Andy

Hi Andy,

Go to All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Windows Easy
Transfer.  There are various options available for
transferring data, and various methods for actually
connecting the two devices.

There's an FAQ about this in Vista's Help system.  Just
search for "Easy Transfer".

I did go the special USB East Transfer cable route myself
when I needed to copy stuff from my wife's old laptop to the
new one.

It did take a while, but the fact that my wife didn't kill
me, suggests that she got all her files and data across.

George.

Hi Saqid.

Thanks very much for your notes.  I'm sure they will help me
get started
with VISTA.

I have only been messing about this evening but found it so
easy to
register, to set up my mail account and to listen to my
first sample music
via the WMP.

I'm so impressed.  Keep thinking though that something is
going to go wrong
at any moment, as usual.  But, touch wood, everything is so
much easier to
set up.

Do you know if I can export my addressbook from Outlook
Express into VISTA.
Also, my folders of files in OE, can I get them over to my
VISTA machine?

Thanks again very much for your support.

Andy.

Hi Andy. I really don't think you will have much of a
problem. When I
purchased my Dell Vista machine Jaws 9 worked fine. The
only difference
between XP seems to be the menu listing order and the
terminology. For
example you will not see the icon named display in control
pannel. There
will be an icon called eas of  use instead. I'm still
trying to get to
grips with Vista. Just another thing you should note. When
ever you
download a file from the internet, The file will be
downloaded in the
download folder which can be found under your profile
name. For example
bring up the start menu and arrow down a couple until you
hear welcome
centre and arrow right in to a sub list which has icons
such as control
pannel, computer, connect to, music, documents and your
name. When you
select your name you will see a hoast of folders including
the download
folder.

I think I've given you a mini tuturial on accessing your
home folders as
well.

From Saqib

Hi all.

Took the big plunge today and purchased a HP VISTA
desk-top PC.  It's
sitting in the kitchen in a couple of big boxes and I'm
planning to put
it together tomorrow with sighted assistance from my wife
Pauline.

I have a copy of JAWS  Pro 8 to install, though I am
hoping to upgrade
this week to JAWS Pro 9, which will probably arrive
within ten days.

So I've not done a thing to it thus far.  I'm looking for
some advice.
For example, is there anything that I should do to the
settings prior to
installing JAWS.  For example, I have since Windows 95
used the High
Contrast Number 2 display colour option as this is less
harsh on my eyes.
Should I wait until JAWS has been installed before
attempting to change
this?

I have a document titled something like Setting up XP to
work with JAWS.
I have used the recommendations in this document for
several years, to
change settings to maximise JAWS.  I was wondering if
there was perhaps a
similar document which would tell me how to enable JAWS
to work at it's
best in VISTA?

So there is a couple of questions off the top of my head
and perhaps
there is a more crucial modification that I need to make
but don't yet
know of it. Perhaps JAWS will work with VISTA out of the
box, so to
speak, but given past experience, I doubt it very much.

Looking forward to lots of advice.

Best wishes.

Andy.
