General Notes About Using MusEdit
1) If you've downloaded the file, but you don't know where it was put on your system, use Windows' "Find" feature by hitting the Start menu, then select "Find Files or Folders", then enter the name of the file you downloaded (you'll see the filenames in the section below, such as "MusEdit-Setup.msi"). Once Windows finds the file you can simply double-click on it right in the find window to extract it's files.
2) Be sure to check out the Help menu for very extensive help about all aspects of MusEdit, and especially check the Getting Started section for an easy example of how to enter simple music consisting of chords, treble, lyrics, and tablature.
3) Check File|Set Preferences to see how you can customize MusEdit for your particular tastes. These preferences will allow you to fine tune the printed output and you can also set margins, fonts, and other preferences from here.
4) Check other areas of this web site for more clues and tips on some of the interesting things you can do with MusEdit, such as setting up "Mutual Translation", translating between alternate tunings, etc. See User Questions, Detailed Examples, and Suggestions and Tips.
5) If you have a MIDI capable sound card (and most are MIDI capable) you will be able to hear the tunes you enter, and the scores included in the Samples folder.
