If you use Everything Search instead you'll find your hard drive
doesn't run on all the time. Everything Search is free and only works
on NTFS partitions. It uses the file system journaling to get updates of
file system changes instead of API notifications that cause your drive
to be indexed yet again.

Way better.
Unless of course you are not running NTFS.

Default Find files and folders

Hi, Desmond.

The WLM Team decided that the familiar Menu Bar was just wasted real estate,
so they decided to hide it, by default. Many WLM users still haven't found
out how to show it, and we get questions about it every day.

To show the Menu Bar temporarily, just press Alt. To toggle it on
semi-permanently, use Alt=M, M.

This is the Menu Bar (with File, Edit, View, etc.), which is not the same as
the customizable Toolbar. I don't recall the default buttons on the Toolbar
because I changed them long ago; mine currently starts with New, Reply
group, Forward, Print...

This is a little different from the original.

If you Hit the ALT button?
This is new to MS. Normaly you have to hold down the ALT key and then
HIT another key on the keybourd.
I did HIT the Alt button. Nothing happened
