Trashcan is another widget, added in the same way :-) You should bookmark http://userbase.kde.org, as well, for help on settling in to things that have changed. In particular, I'd suggest that you have a good read of http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials for overview and http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials/File_Management for getting the best out of Dolphin. There's very little now that you could do in KDE3 but can't in KDE4, but often it's done differently, so ask if you need help. Anne
