How do you get the Notes R4 workspace in R5?

Some users who have gotten truly used to the R4 workspace with the tabs and database icons are more productive in it.

This is only needed if you installed R5 fresh instead of upgrading an R4 installation:
1. Copy over the desktop.dsk from your R4 data directory into the R5 directory.
2. Delete your bookmark.nsf file.
3. Restart R5 so it can migrate the R4 workspace and database icons into R5 bookmarks.

If you upgraded R4 to R5, you will only have to follow the next step: In your databases bookmarks, you will have a Workspace database. Right click this bookmark and click on "Set Bookmark As Home Page".
