New users, or users who just cleared their roaming profiles, will no longer be prompted to select PASS or UDrive for a home folder at logon.  Many have found the prompt confusing and time consuming. PASS is the default selection, but the choice can be changed any time by clicking on the white paw in notification tray and selecting "Preferences" from the pop-up menu.

Use the Start Menu Search Box

One of the most useful new features of Windows 7 is the Start Menu Search Box. Rather than trying to navigate our organizational structure for the Programs menu, you can just type in the name of the program you want and start it instantly.

The Search Box also searches files saved on your UDrive and PASS space, depending on which one you have chosen as your Home folder.

To use the Search Box just open the Start Menu (the Windows logo) and start typing.

Scan with Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop will scan into a JPEG, PNG, PSD, or PDF file, along with many other types of files. It's recommended for pictures and when you need advanced editing controls.
