Use the BlackBerry Desktop Software - Using the Desktop Manager
(Page 4 of 9 )
Once the BlackBerry desktop software is installed and the BlackBerry is connected to the PC, you’re all set to begin using the Desktop Manager software for PIM synchronization, as well as backup and application updates. I’ll discuss each of these features in the following sections, but before doing so, let’s take a look at what is available on the Desktop Manager interface.
The Desktop Manager interface is the basic friendly window-and-menu interface with which you are familiar. You see the Application Loader, Backup and Restore, and Intellisync icons in the window through which you can easily access these features. The following four menu options are also available:
File Opens a Desktop Manager feature (such as Intellisync) when you select the icon in the window and click File | Open (or you can just double-click the icon in the window). You can also use the File menu to exit the Desktop Manager application.
View Allows you to change the appearance of the Desktop Manager. You have two simple options here: use either large icons or small icons (large are used by default), or choose whether or not you want to see the BlackBerry unit’s personal identification number (PIN) and status (whether you’re connected to the Desktop Manager or not). If you choose to use these items, the information appears on the Desktop Manager bottom window border, as shown in Figure 5-2.
Options Allows you to hide the Desktop Manager from your view when it is minimized, and you can access the Serial Settings dialog box, which was mentioned in the previous section.
Help Accesses the Desktop Manager online help.
Figure 5-2 You can display the BlackBerry’s PIN by choosing the appropriate option in the View menu.
