I was quite happy with Windows XP and then along came Vista which I avoided like a plague. However, I recently bought a new computer and was forced to choose Windows 7 which, according to the Bill Gates Mafia Group, is better than sliced bread!
I don't at all like the way Windows 7 is organized. Virtually every program which ran under Windows XP was basically set up the same. File had the same choices etc. But, not on Windows 7. It is probably that I am behind in the learning curve... Or is Gates secretly plotting to drive me bonkers? If he is, he is succeeding admirably.
Now... The subject of this posting: I was just trying a simple function; copying an image from my external hard drive to a thumb drive. I went to the image folder and selected the image....
WHAT! No "File" from which to select a drop down menu? Oh heavens! What will I do? Obviously, Bill made a typo when laying out Windows 7 and entered "Organize" instead of "File"! Oh well, even millionaires can make mistakes.
Now I select the drop down menu from "Organize" and I frantically search for "send to", "copy to" or "save as". What has happened to those selections? I select "Copy" and Windows 7 makes a duplicate copy right next to my original image. Just what I need, two images in the same place!
I find cut, copy, undo, select all, layout, folder and search options but no "save as", "copy to" or "send to".
Sure, I can just grab the image with the cursor and move the thumbnail down to my thumb drive along the left side of the screen but, what happened to my old favorite "copy to" command.
I also seem to have trouble sending images which are emailed to me to where I want to send or copy them to. Again, is it the learning curve or a conspiracy against me???
I have a hunch that if Mr. Gates were to develop the 2012 cars for Ford, he would think that it would be a good idea to steer with the gearshift and shift gears with the steering wheel! Heaven knows what he would do with the gas pedal - maybe put it on the radio dial?
At least, once I got past the silly "Office Button" on Microsoft Word 2007, it had the standard "Open", "save", "save as", commands etc.! I can live with that...
Am I crazy, stupid or what? Although I have tried to be humorous, I do know that I am frustrated as heck with the loss of "save as' and "copy to". What, if anything, is the substitute for those commands?
