Windows 2000: tuning the new OS

If you send items to a particular destination - say, your floppy drive or a particular folder - one of the quickest ways to do it is to right-click the selected files in Explorer and select the Send To option.

By default, this menu includes common destinations such as My Briefcase, but it's easy to add to this menu, or remove items. In Explorer, double-click the drive where Windows 2000 is installed and open the Documents and Settings folder. Double-click your folder. Double-click Send To folder, and add or delete new shortcuts as appropriate (select File-New-Shortcut, and locate the item you want to include as a new shortcut).

(Note: Unlike in Windows 95 and Windows 98, the Send To folder in Windows 2000 carries the Hidden attribute: if you can't see it, select Tools-Folder Options in any Explorer window, and click the View tab. As long as you make sure that Show hidden files and folders is selected, all files should remain visible.)This icon is your clue that this 2000 function works much as in Windows 98.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
