    I have certain tasks that I would like to do when I'm on trips and would like to avoid a laptop. Parallels Access seemed to be the answer, However, I decided to try from home before I took the show on the road.
    The task involves editing a newsletter. The first thing I must do is navigate a four level windows directory (folder) structure (D:\Folder\subfolder\subfolder/document.doc). Normally at some level, subfolders and documents are opened in Windows' right hand explorer pane. I found that I couldn't navigate in the right hand pane. OK, I can click on the arrow in the left hand pane and open the tree. However when you arrive at the last subfolder, your desired document is in the right hand pane. Clicking(tapping) on that doesn't open the document at all. Therefore, my experiment was terminated before it really started. Unless this simple Windows operation is supported, I don't see any future in this product.

    I think that looking at the videos solved my problem.
