What do you really love about your computer?

My favourite, pun intended, is when I have pressed F11 for full screen and I have the favourites list open, then when I move the pointer to the right the favourites list gracefully slides to the left out of sight, move the pointer to the left and it magically re-appears. I know this is sad, but, us addicts will take any fix we can get. Just done it 5 times before posting this :-(

You will probably have something much more sophisticated?

Have just tried that and no go. Could it be because I am using an avant browser?

Sorry but I do not know many of these fancy manoeuvres. I have just learnt about F5 to refresh the page and Ctrl + n for a duplicate page.

Just tried that with mine and it goes thud one side and thud the other, so what are you using?

Absolutely nothing. It's just like my car. When I get in and turn the key I hope it starts. If it does, great. If it doesn't, then back to the dealer to sort it out.

It does not answer back when I suffer Mental Block/Finger trouble!

Hi richard_s and valvegrid, I'm using Internet Explorer V6.0 I just open a window and then press F11 to give a maximum screen, then I click on favourites which appear on the left side. When you click to the right the favourites list slides out of sight. Don't know if it works with other browsers.

pj123, what a shame ;-)

Curio, just as well for me, I'd never shut it up!

Works for me on IE6 with autohide set. Dont have to click though, favs reappear if corsor moved to left of screen and slides back when cursor moved anywhere else on the page
