question - \start menu\programs\


Recommended Posts

I am coming from winxp (skipped vista). In xp I could rearrange

the layout of programs from start button -> all programs by

going to \Documents and Settings\Start Menu\Programs and

moving things around there. I would have thought \Users but

it doesn't seem to be there.

I have my display settings at 1280 x 1024 and the icons are

rather large is there a setting to change the default desktop icon size?

Oh and the MB sound card (intel something) and the SB live don't work

I am thinking of going with the turtle beach montegro and wonder if

anyone can confirm if win7 has drivers for it. Otherwise any pci

cards that definitely work with win7?

For icons, right click desktop > View > Icons (Small, Medium, Large)

Win 7 auto installed my sound blaster 5.1 live gamer card its old, and also the audigy 4 pro. There is no support for the joystick port so you will always see a flag in device manger, but its only for that joystick port thats on the older sound cards so it can be ignored. They expect you to use usb joystick.

Thanks to -x- for the dir path for program shortcuts (all users and username)

as to why, i rearrange have never liked longs lists when I select all programs

so I put everything into 3 or 4 folders with subdirs under that, just a


I was browsing another forum and learned about right clicking on a driver

properties -> compatibility -> run in compatibility mode

then install driver

so now my oem sb live card is working I dont use the creative drivers

rather the kxproject drivers kxdrv3541-full.exe The tray icon doesn't

show up but the windows controls work.
