TuneTracker™ QuickTip

Getting to the Desktop from AutoCast

Because AutoCast is, by design, intended to fill the screen at 800x600 resolution, you need to view another desktop, or pop open a folder over the top of AutoCast, if you want to look at or access other files or programs.

You probably already know that you can maneuver from AutoCast to a free, empty desktop, by doing CTRL-F2, CTRL-F3, etc., but there are times when it's convenient to actually open the desktop in a folder window, right over the top of AutoCast, allowing you to drag-n-drop items on the desktop directly into AutoCast.

Easy! Just hit the letter "F" on your keyboard to pop open your Favorites folder. Click the folder's orange up-arrow until you get top level of your hard drive (often called "boot" or "Haiku®1"), then double-click on the "home" folder, then on "Desktop." It sounds lengthy but takes just a couple seconds. Now your Desktop shows up nicely in a folder, ready for access.

Get these all the time!    Write to us and we'll add you to our weekly e-mail tiplist.
