  • Question

  • I have an older computer with Windows Vista Home Premium and when I go into MY PICTURES OR MY DOCUMENTS I get the toolbar at the top of the screen that says . FILE   EDIT  VIEW  TOOLS  HELP  just as you see in Internet Explorer.  Not too long ago, I purchased a new computer with Windown Vista Home Basic and it does not have this tool bar.  Is this only available in the Vista Home Premium Edition.  Just recently I purchased a new laptop and this time I made sure it had the Windows Vista Home Premium so it would have this toolbar that I absolutely need for my work for moving documents, files, pictures between external hardrive, folders and other places, etc.  To my disappointment this toolbar is not there.  Could someone tell me how to insert this toolbar in My Pictures and My Documents.  I'm sure it is something simple but I have spent hours trying to figure out how to add this toolbar.  Your assistance would really be appreciated.  HELP!!!

  • Hello,
    Thank you very much.  That does the trick.  Now one more question about it.  How do I lock this toolbar in place  to always be there in My Pictures and My documents?  Thank you.
