Re: [teacherartexchange] VISTA

I don't have Vista, but my mother-in-law does. She is not very computer
literate, so trying to show her how to do things on Vista is a mental
stretch. There is one VERY annoying feature - and like I said, she is not
very computer literate so we try to make things very simple. She sells
crafts for a living, and has to send pictures to potential shows. In the
past, we have had her open up "My Pictures", right click on the pictures she
wants to e-mail, and click on "mail to". A box opens up, asking if you want
to resize the images, and you click yes. Now the pictures are inserted into
an e-mail, where theoretically all you have to do is enter the recipient's
name and click "Send". But there is no send button. There just isn't any way
to send the darn e-mail when you go through these steps! I am holding off on
getting Vista for as long as I can - and I am seriously thinking of a dual
platform Mac.
