Jack, I just did all that. Filemgr - TB!folder - thebat!.exe - right click. Make shortcut. Copy shortcut (drag) to desktop - right click No links to 'pin to ..' anything at all, not on the task bar, not on the menu, not from the icon on the desktop, nor from the icon on the taskbar after TB! is loaded. In fact, before sending this, I just went to the file manager and checked to make sure those links wouldn't appear on the .exe icon, on right clicking it. I'll check again after closing TB!, but I don't expect anything different. Some of this stuff may be WinDoze being 'helpful', but I'm not discovering anything there, either. The weird thing is that now TB! and some other packages are loading at much lower resolution than they were, or probably should be. I'll pick the brain of the guy who loaded the system here this time. I never used to let anyone load my systems, and maybe I need to go back to that, but he really is very much more knowledgeable than I, and he offered ... and it was a gift, and one shouldn't look gift horses in the mouth, should one? Or have they changed that rule since I was in school ..? lol! I do appreciate the help, though. It really is beginning to seem like anything I touch goes badly south these days.
