I’ve decided to try something new on my LS800. After I doubled the height of the taskbar, as suggested by Warner I had an annoying issue.
When I clicked the orb to bring up the Start menu in landscape mode I would get a message stating that some Start Menu items could not be displayed. Remember that the LS800 has a screen resolution of 800 x 600. As far as I could tell the only item missing was the little graphic at the top of the menu that displays your user picture or the icon for the currently selected menu item. That said the error message is annoying.
To see if I can get around this I’ve decided to try something new. I’ve positioned the Taskbar on the right edge of the screen.
This is certainly going to take some getting use to – old habits die hard. That said I am finding it quite productive. You see – because I am right handed when I am “at rest” like reading a document my hand holding the stylus naturally rests off to the right side. So if I need to switch to another application, like to check an incoming email, the pen is already in the right place.
When I bring out the Start Menu it has a bit more room to expand out.
I’ll give it a few days and then let you know how I am finding it.
