New Laptop
« on: October 22, 2014, 01:38:36 PM »
We have an old laptop that is running XP and is quite cranky, so I decided to upgrade it.  I have thoughts of using the newer one and retiring mine to replacing the cranky one.

I wanted to retain Win 7 so I searched and found a source for refurbished laptops.  It's an HP6455B, which seems OK, but finding and loading the stuff that I normally use is a pain.

I'm just glad that my normal laptop is not broken (or maybe I would be better off if it was).   :-\

Someone please remind me how to remove the "refresh" from the address bar so that I can move it over to the left.

Figured it out.  In "customize" I added the separator and then dragged the additional refresh and stop buttons into this newly created empty space on the left side.  The original refresh button is still on the right and inside of the address bar, so now I have two.

Now, I've gotta remove the tap from the touch pad.  This one does not have it shown with the mouse.   :-\

Done.   smiley_thumbsup

It takes me quite a while to wade through all of the options.  That plus the popups that want you to download "their" stuff.  Anyway, I finally feel like this laptop is mine now.   :)
