Look what came in the mail for me!
Want a hint?
It's a fancy bronzy color!
I figured it was about time for an upgrade. Wayne found a great deal on this for me at TigerDirect. The computer came with Windows Vista so I opted for an upgrade to Windows 7 because of all the negative things I have heard about Vista. I also bought the new versions of the Microsoft Office software.
Now, of course when you get new programs and a new computer there is always a learning curve, right? Well, how is this for annoying - there is no "save as" feature in Word or Excel!!! I don't know about you but I use this feature A LOT. So now, if I want to create a similar document I will have to copy all, paste it to a new document and then save it. This is going to be a challenge to remember so that I don't rewrite the original document. I use this a lot - especially when I am printing up yarn labels. If anyone has any secret trick about there being a "save as" feature somewhere - please share!!!
Other than that it's just a matter of getting used to where everything is I think. The menu looks pretty different so again, learning curve. I still have Windows XP and the previous Office versions on my desktop so I'll have to keep going back and forth between them. But, no biggie there. I'm just a little annoyed about the "save as" thing. I mean, why would they get rid of a feature like that????? Obviously, they don't print many yarn labels.
Check out this teeny tiny remote control that came with it.
I mean, this thing is SMALL. It must weigh about 1/4oz or something.
Wanna place some bets on how long it will be before I can't find this anymore?
