Lost access to Windows
« on: November 08, 2019, 11:14:56 am »
Hi everyone

New to Linux today.

Installed Peppermint 10 and am working through its actions.

I obviously hit a wrong key during the installation as I now can not access my Windows 7 programme at start/up. Does anyone know what I did wrong and is it easy to remedy?  I would like to pull across all my bookmarks etc from WIndows to Linux.

Also, how do I add shortcuts to my toolbar, for Skype etc?

Many thanks

Hi Jeff

Welcome to the forum

Can you open your terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and post the output of the following command

Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Right click on the item you want to put on the panel click Add to Panel

Hi jeff, if you have a lot of shortcuts you want to add to a panel, I would suggest making a second panel.
What was I thinking?

Please post the output emegra asked for, so we can see if your Windows partitions still exist.
