Instructions say to go to start, then to computer or my computer. I can't find it! Where should I be looking?

When you click on start, you may have to go to All Programs to find it. HA! This is the non-computer geek here trying to help! Funny me!

Could it be known as a different name? I don't see it in all programs or the control panel.

It could just be listed as 'Computer' It wont be found in the Control Panel, but it should be in the same menu as Control Panel

Control Panel, My Computer, My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, etc. -------------- Those are all in the same menu usually.

Hi sueb, you should see it on the right hand side of the popup screen after you click on the Windows start button. It should be the 4th or 5th item down on that side right after documents, pictures or music. What are you trying to do?

I want to transfer music from Windows Media Player to a USB drive. I found the computer thing, then I'm supposed to look for a removable icon? That is not there! Can you help again?

Is your USB drive completely installed when you plug it in? It should go through the process of installing usb drive and after that is complete you should then it should be in the list under the "C" drive, "D" drive and your USB could be showing up as "E" drive or look for one that says removable drive and that will be your USB.

when you click on the start button and the menu shows up there should be a little box for search, in the search box type in my computer, it will find the file, then right click and make a shortcut of it your desk top, that way you won't lose it again, you can find all kinds of files and folders with search if you know the names of them. Good luck!
