How to uninstall S&T Keys?
ron4adams
While looking through past threads for an easy way to have my 2008 version of S&T ignore missed stops and not reroute, a post suggested installing hot keys. I downloaded one listed for the 2007 version but when I attempted to install it I was informed that this was not compatible with my version and I should download a 2006 version. I downloaded toyfountain_Keys_2008_2_55_added_hotkeys_english. It installed, but then gave the message that it would not work with Vista, which I am running. Now I can't get it to uninstall. Help!

S&T Keys is just a single file, so all that you need to do is to delete that one file.

When given the choice between doing something the easy or hard way, I usually choose the hard way. I uninstalled my S&T program, and the file went with it. Then I reinstalled S&T. Now to my original purpose for installing the file in the first place. I was looking for an easy way to have my S&T navigator ignore stops I bypassed, either intentionally or on purpose. Many of the towns on our next trip are so small that when I attempt to schedule a stop at 4212 Any Ave NW in Anytown, S&T can only locate Any Ave, Anytown. My normal instinct is to turn left on Any Ave, when I should have turned right. Both me and my navigator immediately recognize my mistake, and the last thing I need is for S&T to be yelling at me. Any suggestions?

S&T is generally very polite, as are most GPS programs.

On a typical day of 5-10 "wrong" turns what begins as polite directions ends as yelling. I guess I am too sensitive or defensive. Last fall we drove past the 10 most visited historic sites in downtown Boston (in our 25' Winnebago View) and I only had the time to see the bar made famous in Cheers! On that day I only had to "go around the block" on about 15 different occasions, but our Tom Tom almost when crazy trying to reroute me. That was one of the times it ended up flying to the back of the coach.

You can turn off the reroute function if that is helpful. Or just turn off the sound!

Sorry for being so uninformed but I have looked extensively and can not find any guidance on how to turn off the rerouting feature. I know it is an option on the 2010 version, but can't find it on my 2008 version.

You are correct. I just double checked, and the auto-reroute feature was introduced in version 2009: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/2565-review-microsoft-streets-trips-2009-a

Yep and this is the main reason i never used the 2008 version because of the missing option and stucked with the 2007 version at that time. I prefered to use manual rerouting myself (2007 version) than beiing force to reroute (2008 version), sometimes in the wrong direction.

Fortunatly, starting with the 2009 version and later, user has the choice...
