Windows 2000: tuning the new OS

Want to view all the file extensions of all your files? Doesn't it make sense to display compressed files and folders in different colours? Windows 2000 can do all these things - but only if you tell it to. Open Folder Options either from Control Panel or the Tools menu of any Explorer window. Click the View tab, and scroll down the list, clicking to add or remove item check marks where necessary. Click OK to make the changes to the current folder, or click the Like Current Folder button to apply your settings to all of your folders. (This option is greyed out if you open Folder Options from Control Panel - by default, changes made there affect all folders.) To revert to the default view settings later, reopen Folder Options and click the Restore Defaults button.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
