Hi,
I have a generla question from a staff or user training point of view.

My question is this: When microsoft tend to upgrade to a new version of
windows, such as from 98 to 2000, or which ever is the next "upgrade level",
do microsoft change the shortcuts and the user details alot or not much?

Meaning for example when a person has gotten used to all the small
shortcuts, tweaks of the xp, then will they all have to be "relearnt" for
the new one? Sometiems it can take quite a long time to learn all the deep
little potential adjustments and shortcuts to make it run efficiently and
work productively.

A great deal remains the same, for ease of transition. For instance,
capturing screen shots done the same way in WinXP as it was done in
Win95. Cut, Copy & Paste shortcut keys remain the same from Windows 3.1
up through WinXP. There will be differences, of course, but these are
usually related to new features/functionality that weren't present in
earlier versions of Windows.
