Use old win 3.1 programs to access the c: drive

Post by heebyjeebys » Mon Mar 17, 2008 5:39 pm

My school has a win 3.1 version of paint shop pro and you can use it to access the c: drive and delete things etc. I used this to change the desktop wallpaper :D
I also used a 3.1 version of terbo pascal to view the c: drive but could not do anything because it crashes when you try to access anything :lol:

Is there any other win 3.1 program that will let me properly browse the c: drive??

Microsoft Word pre 2007 using the web toolbar should let you access the c:/

:shock:

Office 2003 was the pinnacle of office interface excellence.

(The office 2007 interface sucks :) )

I agree, the new interface sucks!
It's confusing.

I think its ok, but it does look cleaner.
Don't like half the buttons being hidden though
Out of curiosity, has anyone who took software from the server been caught and shouted at?
