Create shortcut for eBahn Reader (XP Mode)
Creating this shortcut will allow you to start eBahn in XP Mode without having to first launch XP - it will appear seamless (as though it's not in it's own window)
- right-click on the Start menu and select Explore
- find the folder C:\Documents and Settings\XPMUser\Start Menu\Programs\eBahn
- select and copy the shortcut file called "eBahn Reader (shortcut)"
- now find the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
- paste the eBahn Reader shortcut file here
This will allow eBahn Reader to appear in the Start menu when you start your PC. It may take a minute for your PC to detect this change.
When closing XP Mode, it's better to use the Ctrl-Alt-Del at the top of the screen. When you are using eBahn Desktop in XP Mode, it's okay to simply select the X at the top right of the eBahn screen
