On-line help and FAQ:


I have recently taken on operation of the 8200 at Ames Lab in addition to my regular duties with the Materials Lab at ISU. While I am VERY comfortable performing EDS on an SEM, at least with the Oxford system we have on our Hitachi, I find myself VERY much a rookie on the probe. I know a lot of the basic concepts for probe analyses and have been trying to 'translate' what I have had to do for EDS to the probe. However, dealing with WDS and the JEOL software and Unix has definitely been a major learning curve for me. 

That said, I have a quite basic problem today. I normally abide by the rule that if you don't know what something is, don't mess with it. However, I discovered the SwingMouse application running on the system today. I had not noticed it before and thought perhaps another user had started it. It looked cute, but I did not think it necessary, so I closed it. Of course, now I understand how it permitted me to swing the mouse from the Sun screens over to the JEOL EM screen. Now the question is how do I get it back?

Thanks in advance for your help and showing mercy to a novice.
