  1. This is so convenient. Thought I would share. We all use the web for information; access the company intranet, look-up phone numbers, etc. There are a few tricks you can use to make your surfing smoother. Sometimes you need to reference the previous page and the next page at the same time. When you click on the link use the right mouse button a dialogue box will open that gives you choices on how the link opens – now you can compare the information side by side. This is also great for opening PDF or Acrobat files that can force you to close your browser when you close the file. Using the right click, you have the options of open, open in new window, open in new tab, save file as and more. Now how about those websites that won’t let you leave. You click the back button but the same page reloads. Frustrating! Try this. Click the back button twice fast. This will prevent the page from reloading and move you to the previous web location.
  2. If your like me and use Photoshop quite often correcting and playing with pictures with color correcting. This works pretty well. Most digital photographs will need some level of color correcting. If you're an avid photographer, this can translate into a lot of hours in your digital darkroom. Rather than start from scratch for each image, why not copy your color corrections over from an image you've already tackled? It's easy to do and can be quite effective if your images were taken under the same indoor or outdoor lighting conditions. To copy color corrections from one image to another: 1. Open up the first image that needs color correcting. 2. Make your necessary color corrections on adjustment layers. 3. Open up the second image that needs color correcting. 4. Arrange your images so they are both visible and then click on the first image to make it the active image. 5. Click on the adjustment layer's layer thumbnail and drag it over to the second image and release. The adjustment layer is now added to the second image. At this point, depending on the image you may be done or you may have to tweak the color just a little further. In any event, this is a good way to get a jumpstart on color correcting multiple images with the same needs.
  3. This is very helpful if you spend a lot of time in word and creating documents for work or personal use. We've all had the unfortunate experience of losing changes to a document because of a power surge or application error, and we all know that the key to minimizing damage from these events is to save frequently. When you're working in multiple Word documents at once, there's a fast way to save all the documents at the same time rather than manually saving each document. To save all of them at once, press and hold down [shift], and then select File | Save All from the menu bar. When you're making changes to the Normal.dot template, such as recording macros or adding other customization, it's important to save those changes frequently. Unlike File | Save (or [Ctrl]S, [command]S in Word v. X), which only saves open documents, Save All saves changes to open templates as well.
  4. I just love this little added touch. It is easy to do too. Variety is the spice of life, so why have your email messages look like everyone else's? It's easy to add a little variety to your messages with the help of text effects. First, we must set Word as our email editor. To do so, choose Tools | Options from the Outlook menu bar. Next, clik on the Mail Format tab and select the Use Microsoft Word To Edit E-mail Messages check box (the name of the check box varies depending on your versions of Outlook and Word). Then, click OK. At this point, create a new message and enter some text in the message area. Next, select all or some of your text, depending on what text you want to apply a special effect to. Then, select Format | Font from the message form's menu bar. Next, click on the Text Effects tab, select a text effect from the Animations list box, and click OK.
  5. Find similar web pages quickly in Internet Explorer (Win XP) Have you ever discovered a cool website, and wanted to find ones similar to it without having to perform a search using your favorite search engine? By choosing a simple Internet Explorer menu option, you can see a whole host of similar sites in a special pane along the left side of your IE window without ever having to leave the page you're currently viewing. All you need to do is choose Tools | Show Related Links. The Search pane appears on the left side of your window listing a whole host of sites similar to the one you're currently viewing. Just click on one of the links to follow it to the next site.
