    ... how do you launch REGEDIT.EXE or REGDT32.EXE? I have been reading the A+ book, and I may have missed something, but it just says to 'Launch..' it...also, I don't wanna screw around in the Registry before I am confident with what I am doing.

    Thanks

    See, thats what I thought, but the 'run' option isn't so easy to find in stupid vista...or, and this is 100% possible!! I'm just been a idiot.

    dude, i think it may be better using XP for the purpose of the A+ exams as you will find it easier to work around...

    Vista for a command prompt, you don't need to click run. Hot your start bar and you should have a long bar which says something like start search right above your start button. Just type in cmd and hit enter, voila command prompt.

    I'd agree, stick XP on your machine for the purposes of A+, even if it means dual (or more) booting. I have alot of OS's sat on various hard disks in this machine, definitely worth playing with them all, but stick to XP for A+ if at all possible (the way the books have been written, esp. Meyers, are geared towards the XP GUI)

    Yep use XP for the A+.

    The Mike Meyers book only mentions Vista in a Paragraph on the Installing and Upgrading Windows chapter.

    It also says near the start of the book that the A+ concentrates on XP and Windows 2000.

    So I would recommend using XP

    In vista you can type run in the "start search" field right at the bottom when you click on the start button. Or you can go to All Programs-Accessories and you'll see run in there.

    Fastest way: Press and hold the windows-button on your keyboard (mostly between control and alt) and press 'r'.
    Other fastkeys:
    e for explorer
    f for find
    m or d for 'minimize all programs'
    M for 'reverse minimize all programs' this is not maximize!
