Tuesday's Tip Bonus Edition- Downloadable Help Files (Beginner)

Downloadable Help FIles

Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

Downloadable Help Files (Beginner)

One of our long time Legacy users, Bosse W., added a great comment/suggestion to today's Tuesday's Tip, How to Add Multiple Help Files. He suggested that we add all of the different language Help Files as simple downloads to our Legacy website so that it would be easier to snag them. This was a great idea and Ken just set it up. Here is the new link:

Great idea! Is there a particular directory you need to download it to in Legacy? As a beginners help file, most of us also need instructions on the download area to make the most of this help. Thanks so much! (I unsubscribed to Facebook so that is not an option for me)

On the download page Ken has put the file path where you need to put the file after you unzip it. It goes in

C:\Program Files (X86)\Legacy9

If you have a 32 bit computer this will be C:\Program Files\Legacy9
