I am planning to buy a new computer with Windows 7 built in. Can I set it up so that it acts like and works similar to Windows XP? If so, exactly how would I do that? Thank you very much. murrar

From what I am reading, if you can work in XP then it will be a lot like XP just better.

To windowdog: Thank you for your response. But will Windows 7 be as EASY to learn and navigate as Windows XP? Thank you. murrar

windowdog, I hesitate to say that Windows 7 is a lot like Windows XP. If a user has skipped the Vista generation and is going from XP to 7, then there will be some fundamental changes to get used to. However, Murrar, it is still Windows and it's a tremendously user friendly operating system in my opinion. If you have an aptitude for learning, especially with a computer, then you won't have too many problems getting acclimated to Win7. And, as always, if you have problems you know you can come here and get help.

Best of luck to you!
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.
