thanks. I really don't mind change. (I know I sound like I do), I just don't like it when it messes with my life this bad. especially when it is totally random and unnecessary. does your wife have a clicky too? ok, now how do I change a file type without getting another program? I used to be able to just select the part after the dot and change it. like from .txt to .htm. now I need to change a file that thinks it's a .psd but it is really a .pat.
