Setting Default Drives

A program should boot up with MY CHOICE of disk/directory as the default drive. This is true on any desktop computer, but this not quite the case with the HP 95LX.

OK! 1-2-3 lets you set the default directory by modifying the Lotus configuration file. (See the section titled "/Worksheet Global Default Directory" on page 13-8 of your HP 95LX User's Guide.) And APPT and PHONE remember the last file used and will load that file the next time they are used.

Unfortunately MEMO forces you to change from C:\_DAT (its default) to whatever directory you use for primary data storage.

My solution is to create a User Defined Function Key (or "macro") that clears C:\_DAT directory and changes to A:\WORK, the WORK subdirectory on the RAM card in my Memory Card slot. This macro can be created using the 95LX's learn option. (For more on creating CHAR macros, see Getting Started, page 41, this issue.)

To view the F-key macro definitions press <Shift> <FILER> Char.

Here is the macro I wrote just as it appears on the 95LX's Macro Definition screen:




Here's a macro to switch you between two or more phone books, and to display a list of phone books that you have. (If you have made changes to the active phone book be sure to save it before attempting to execute this macro. If you don't, the macro will crash.)
