Windows 10 Partitions   Partitioning.png

"Floppy disc" drives are no longer supported;  consequently, A: and B: are no longer reserved as labels for these drives.
 
We can now use them as labels for disc partitions; I have created partitions Audio (A:) for .mp3 and .wav files (instead of Myriad Documents > Export > Music Export) and Backup (B:)
 
To create/format/label a partition, right-click on the Windows logo (Start icon) and then Disk Management to see the disk partitioning (as below) and then press F1.

Score + Forum, side-by-side on screen

 Open your Score.
 Press the Windows key + Left arrow    
   
    Help > Go to BBS    
    Press the Windows key + Right arrow    
   
 Click the square Restore icon at the top-right of the HA window to restore your score to full-screen.
 


As is the case with Harmony Assistant, Windows has too many short-cuts to remember!
Two easily-remembered and useful short-cuts are:
 
 Windows key + E  = Open File Explorer    
 Windows key + D =  View Desktop  
 Click the Harmony Assistant icon at the bottom of the screen to restore a Score

Thanks for this useful hint, Tony. The zone of the taskbar to click to get the desktop is far too small, and does not show anything.  
 
 
Btw, Pressing Windows key + D a second time returns to the previous screen.

Backup your HA Set-up   Copy_preferences.png

Backup your HA customisation! It is so demoralising to lose years' of customisation because of a disc crash/corruption/new computer/new operating sytem !!!
(Your registration codes for Hamony, Virtual Singer and MyrSynth (H.Q.) will also be saved)
 
In Harmony Assistant click on  Help > Open "Myriad Preferences" folder  
A File Explorer window opens, showing the path :
 
[] > This PC  >  Local Disk (C:)  > Users > {name} >  AppDat  >  Roaming  >  ACAMPREF  > Myriad
 
[] GMDigit   … (plus many other folders & files).
 
   Type Ctrl-A to select all of these folders & files.
   Click on the icon at the top: Copy To > Choose location (at the bottom of the new narrow window) and then copy to a secure folder (i.e. not on drive C:).

Backup your HA Set-Up (part 2)   New_folder_created.png

What! You do not have a Backup Folder ?
 
Windows allows you to create one during the copy process.
 
 Right-click the New Folder to re-name it (for example, My HA Setup).  
 
  Give it a special icon.  ("Keys" are appropriate, since you are saving your registration codes!):
  Right-click the New Folder  > Properties > Customise > Change Icon > {choose an icon} OK  > Apply > OK

Backup your H.A. Set-up (part 3)  
« Reply #6 on: Apr 9th, 2019, 6:59pm »

If you have Gold Sound:
 
By default, the folder GMDigit contains almost 1GB of data (provided you have not loaded it elsewhere and reset your Configuration >> Paths).
 
You would probably not want to make a copy of this - especially if you have the disc!  
 
Select the folders and files to copy manually:
 
 Click on the MyrScript folder.  
 Press the Shift key.
 Press the Page Down key, twice
 Copy.
 
Then go inside the GMDigit folder and manually copy the files other than Gold.sdb
