Hi, since your so fond of downloading videos and music i suggest you get an external drive to save all this goodies....Videos and music take a lot of space and a memory stick won't be enough to store all of these....a memory stick is only good for files you always carry with you around while an external drive seats beside your computer act as a storage for all your videos, music, movies, photos, etc....it can store hundreds or even thousands of your files.....the more storage space the more expensive though(and that goes the same way for the memory stick but you get more bang for a buck for the external drive)......

Good Luck, Let me know what you decide and i will get back to you!!! Cheers

How do I move a copy of Quicken from my desktop to my laptop.


Hi.
When you downloaded quicken, it should by default save to a sub folder named "Download" Depending on your PC's operating system, the download folder is normally found in the "My Documents folder" Click on the Start buttom (Windows) in the bottom left corner of the taskbar. Inside the Download folder should be a file with the name Quicken.exe. Copy the Quicken.exe file to a memory stick or flash drive, then stick in into the usb port of the other PC. Click on the Quicken.exe file and it will run the installation of Quicken on the second PC. Install Quicken the same way on the 3rd PC.
Good luck!!

Windows run doesn't keep my work history


you have to physically save any work
save the history to a usb drive in case you have computer failure

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


hope this helps

How to download from computer to memory stick


Plug your memory stick into the USB slot on the computer. If this is the first time that particular memory stick is being placed into the machine, it will take a few seconds to find the drivers and install it.
Once this is completed, you want to open "My Computer" and look for the Removable Device that will normally have a drive letter of (F:) for example. When you have this window open, open another window, this time with the location of the information you want save on your memory. Once this is found you can transfer them by right clicking on each of the files you want sent to the memory stick and click "send to .....and send it to the removable device. If you want to transfer files in bulk, you can simply drag the files you want into the window you already have open with the removable disk. Practice it and it will become like second nature to you.
Hope this helped...

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TRANSFER FOTOS AND VIDEO TO MY CRUZER MICRO 2GB


There are several ways to do it. Try this.

Go to my Computer and select the stick drive by double clicking the icon (removable drive, e? f? g?, depending what other drives you have on your machine) This should open a window for that drive showing its contents.

Now go to the folder that contains the files you want to back up. Right click the file you want to back up and choose Copy. Go back to the window for the stick drive and left click in the window, then right click and choose paste.

Your file should now be copied to the memory stick.

If you want to save several files click on the first one, hold down the Shift key and click on the last one in the folder and they will all be selected - then right click and select Copy. Then do as abaove to save to the memory stick.

I have an old sony vaio with a 60 gb hard


How "full" is the hard-drive? Perhaps, you could have only a few gigabytes to be "saved".

Click Start
Click My Documents
Click Edit
Click Select All
Right-mouse click on any of the highlighted items.
Click Properties.
Windows will report on the size (megabytes/gigabytes) of all the selected documents and folders.

Perhaps, you can buy 4GB or 8GB or 16GB USB memory-stick,
and manually copy your 'My Documents' files/folders to that memory-stick.

Or, use the "Windows Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to "collect" all your files & E-mail, and write an "export" file to that memory-stick.

Then, on the "new" computer, run the same Wizard, and "import" from the USB memory-stick onto your new computer.

Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
