    You can open to the root just by double-clicking on the C: drive icon in File Explorer
    that I think would only work if the person opened the files before they copied them to the external device .

    to the best of my computer knowledge there is no way of knowing what folders or files the person may have copied to the external device
    The only way I can think of - it's too late here though - is to install a keylogger to capture future attempts.

    If this is a Domain, the AD logs would tell you if a share was accessed, by what username & the time it was accessed.

How it opens now is what ever monitor I click on the program in, it opens it in that monitor. I understand the logic on that,...

Windows 8 on laptop previously had Vista
I have a Compaq Presario f500 laptop which had vista on it when I bought it a few years ago. It currently has Pclinuxos on it, but I'd like to install Windows 8, if possible, so I can run Photoshop and lightroom. It's marginal in terms of specs for Windows 8 I think, in that it only has 1 Gb...
