First, the bad news: Internet Explorer 7 in Vista resets toolbar settings everytime its reopened. Any changes you made, such as adding “Links” to the toolbar, will be undone after closing the program and reopening it.
Now, for the good news: First, when copying your old files onto your new Vista machine, simply dump your entire “My Documents” directory into the “Documents” directory and Vista will prompt you to put the “My Pictures” and “My Videos” folders into their respective “Pictures” and “Videos” directory. Second, the sound control has a mixer to change volume levels for individual programs; a great feature for listening to music while chatting on AIM. Third, many more printer drivers are built into the operating system, allowing for easy installation. It’s almost like using a Mac.
