If you have taken the leap to Windows XP, you will surely notice that there are many new things to look at and get used to. If you are like me, you might be used to the way things were and you might not want them to change. Unfortunately, change is the only constant.
To assist in this transition, I will start to write a series of "XP How To" articles which explain how things are done in Windows XP.
