I haven’t posted a screenshot of my desktop in a while and since I have switched full-time to Miyagi (Fujitsu P1610) it’s time to post it again.  Here it is in all its blackness (click to enlarge):

JK Fuji desktop

The high resolution of the Fuji (1280 x 768) makes it possible for me to put the Quick Launch toolbar on the taskbar using large icons which are easy to tap with my finger.  I then put the running programs portion of the taskbar underneath the Quick Launch so I have easy fingertip access to everything.  It even works well in portrait orientation.  Before you ask, the battery icon on the taskbar to the right of the TIP icon is from Notebook Hardware Control.

  1. Isn’t there something odd about using your own image as your desktop? That would kind of freak me out I think :)

  3. Tim, I would think it odd if I used your image, too. :) Seriously, I do that as people recognize it at coffee shops etc. and stop by to chat.

  4. kip, I haven’t installed Firefox yet as I haven’t needed it. IE7 is working well for me. Don’t get me wrong, I will install FF soon as I always install it on my devices but I haven’t had a single time with IE7 where I wished FF was loaded.

  5. Interesting: I’m in the same boat. I’ve a new tablet and have been so impressed with IE7, I haven’t loaded FF yet. I’ve got FF as a portable app on a flash drive for the time being..

  6. Ok, stupid question, but how do you get the icons to be large on the quick access toolbar?

  7. Mark, the only stupid question is the one unasked. Right-click on the task bar, select view and click on large icons. It’s amazing how long I used WinXP before I realized you could do that.

  8. JK, Thanks. When I right click I don’t have a view option to click. Hm…

  9. Never mind. You right click the handles on the quick launch toolbar (toolbars not locked), and there you have the view option. COOL.
