    In XP I was able to customise the toolbar with icons for moving & copying.
    Any ideas if this is possible in Win7?

    You need to be more explicit - are you talking about "Windows
    Explorer" ??

    Windows Explorer? No.

    Internet Explorer 8? Yes.

    But that is a browser toolbar, not an XP or Win7 toolbar. Hence, our
    confusion.

    FYI: IE8 is compatible with XP and Vista as well as Win7.

    >Windows Explorer!


    Not possible to customise tool bar in Windows Explorer in Vista and
    Windows 7

    You can use the "Organise" button to get:-

    Cut
    Copy
    Paste
    Delete
    and others

    You can also download a free utility from:-

    http://webtrickz.com/get-classic-st...oolbar-in-windows-7-vista-with-classic-shell/

    which will give a "Classic Stsrt Menu" and/or a "Classic Explorer
    Toolbar". The tool bar part will put:-

    Up one level
    Cut
    Copy
    Paste
    Delete
    Properties

    buttons into the Windows Explorer tool bar.

    Mmmm - sorry - I did not realise that.

    Tell them to hold down the shift key when clicking the start button -
    that bypasses the classic start menu.

    OR ...............

    Right click on start menu button, select "Settings"

    Select "Hot key to use instead of Win Key" and enter some obscure hot
    key combination, e.g. CTRl ALT [

    Now your daughters can just press the WIN key to get the real Win7
    start menu
