  • 1. Contact Button/Icons
    After installing and uninstalling sygic's Contacts software, all the icons and shortcuts assigned to Contacts are gone. The Contacts button (on the front of the device) can't find the built-in Contacts program either. It appears uninstalling sygic's software messed up my Contacts icons & shortcuts system wide. sygic tech support couldn't give me a solution. Is there a way to reset it back to system default and get the Contacts icons back??? Maybe some registry editing will fix it??? TIA

Hi Group,

Having just got a Dell Axim X5 I'm searching the net for any software that
will give a "left hand" scroll bar, do any group members know of anything
around the web?  I cant imagine I'm the only left handed user that finds it
a pain in the {*filter*}with just a right hand scroll bar

Quit searching and use the time to get used to it. Sorry, but there just
isn't any relief for lefties that have trouble with the right side scroll,
etc.  There is a program or two around that lets you change the scroll side,
but nothing that is an OS or system wide hack.

As Sven said, there's nothing that can do what you want system 
wide, and I don't expect Microsoft to release something to 
change this.

I'm a lefthanded user like you, but in the end I simply got used 
to the scroll bar on the right hand side. It's not like I have 
my stylus on the scroll bar all the time, so my vision of the 
screen is only blocked for a second or so. I can live with that.

Try dotPocket I think you can reverse the screen giving you what you are
looking for.

3.Multiple users synch'ing to PC - limit to number of users per PC??

Our healthcare system is utilizing iPaqs for use by the physicians for 
clinical application work - using ePocrates, AllScripts, etc.  The physicians 
also keep their calendars and contacts (sometimes email) on the devices as 

Our shared PC's (not assigned to just one person) are either an autoboot 
machine with a shared account, or the provider will sign on with his/her own 
credentials.  This sometimes causes headaches when John is the signed on user 
to the PC, and Diane comes along to sync the device.  Just won't work, and 
fouls up the partnership, of course.  We think we finally have the docs 
trained to check first, but that's not the only problem we're encountering.

Several errors are coming up as well (I'm trying to get the Level I tech to 
get me the error codes/messages), but I'm really wondering if there is a 
limit as to how many different providers can sync to one PC?  Does anyone 
know of a limit on this, or it shouldn't matter?
