    F1, F2, F11, F8, F10 ,F12, del, esc . Its like they said , hey just pick A DIFFERENT one of those for the next model we make.
    Can also have ctrl with one of the above, or shift with one of the above etc

    MS should have just said, 'if you want to put a Win sticker on that thing, these are the F numbers you MUST use'

    Wainui, I think I would have most of Johnny Cash’s records, but I’ve never heard that one, let alone the clip.

    Boy oh boy, can I relate to it, the link will be off to mates around the world who would fully understand.

    Whoever wrote the lyrics has sure been there.

    Win7 works exactly the same way.
    I'm familiar with Junction Points on NTFS, and for the most part they behave exactly like any other folder to the OS and applications (some special cripple-cases like Windows Backup barf on them though)..
    WT's screenshot does indeed show shortcuts, and the error msg is "Access Denied" to a directory (that just happens to be a JP) because of the Read Deny attribute for the user in question.

    This is no time for fear and doubt
