Hello, Anne --

The only options that I have YET seen are where-all to display the 
wallet; I have NOT yet seen anything to manage its settings.  With your 
comments (especially about the separate and distinct manager!), I will 
revisit the issue shortly and let you know what I find.  I "might" have 
said "yes" to something unwisely, but I really do not recall the event.  
THAT may be more a function of my forgettery rather than of facts!
