7. Famous Museums of Europe – Tips on navigating and printing.
The Famous Museums of Europe CDs have many areas to explore, and for these programs, it might be helpful to check out the "Help" menu within the program to understand how to navigate though it.
To launch these programs, insert the CD into the CD player. If autostart launches your program, click on "Start." If autostart does not launch your program after you've inserted the CD, click on Start in your Windows taskbar, go to Programs, find your "emme" folder, and then double-click on either "Visit Europe's Best Museums" or "Great Museums Vol. 2."
You can single click to advance through the introduction screens, until you get to the main program screen, which has seven museums to choose from (Alte Pinakothek, The Hermitage, Uffizi Gallery, Musee D'Orsay, Rijksmuseum, Tate Gallery, and Kunsthistorisches Museum). You can either click on one of these museum titles, or on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. If you choose "Index" from the menu, it will take you to a page where you may search for a particular artist, or explore other subjects.
It may be useful to note that any time your cursor changes, you've found a link to another section of the program - simply choose the "Back" menu to return to the previous page. Clicking on artwork will provide information about the art and the artist.
The Famous Museum pictures can be printed in this way:
- Click on "(My) Computer" in the Start menu, or the shortcut on your desktop.
- Locate and right-click on the CD ROM icon labeled "Europe" or "Museums2" and choose "Explore."
- In the files to the right of your screen, locate and double-click on the "TEMI" folder, and then click on the "slide" folder.
- Open each numbered folder you see, which contains paintings from the CD.
- Click on the "View" menu at the top of the screen and then click on "Thumbnails" to view thumbnail sized pictures of the paintings.
- You may double-click on any of the paintings to view them, and then click on the printer icon at the bottom of your screen, or simply right-click on the thumbnail, and choose "Print."
