Organizing files in folders is easier when you utilize the Sort by and Group by options in Windows 7. You can sort and group files by name, type and date, but there are a whole slew of other ways to organize your files too. Here’s how to do it.
1. Open a folder with files you want to arrange. Then right-click on
Surfing the internet, you’ll find quite a bit of talk that could be considered gibberish. Internet slang such as “noob,” words written in numbers instead of letters (“H3ll0!,”) and lots of acronyms that don’t make much sense on first viewing, if ever; lolz, wtf, rofl, smh, etc. While this type of “gibberish” could be researched for definitions/translations, there is another kind
Anthony from NYC asks:
When installing a program, some appear on all user accounts, others on just the user account you are on at the moment. Is there any way to be sure that what you are installing is installed on all user accounts?
Well, Anthony, there are multiple answers to your question, and
I tried Internet Explorer 9, and felt a bit helpless without my menu bar. How do you get that back, or at least have access to the usual apps on the menu bar. I was also missing a few of my toolbars that I normally use, and was clueless as to how to get them back
Francine from Santa Fe, New Mexico asks:
I like to get rid of as many background tasks that I am not using as much as I can, so I am always going into the Task Manager. Yesterday I opened it and there were nine instances of Internet Explorer! It took me forever to shut them all down. What’s
Quick… in MS Word, what’s the difference between Ctrl + U and Ctrl + Shift + W?
The answer is one little word: spaces.
Let me explain.
I’m sure you all know that Ctrl + U will underline text, spaces and all
Bob from Edgewater, Florida asks:
I have “Western Digital” My books, 500 Gig external hard drive. I can not access any of the information that is on the drive. Is there any way I can retrieve the information? Maybe software, freeware or anything that I can do. Thank you for any help you can give. I keep the
Are you tired of trying to read that fine print on your computer screen? I know I am. At least I used to be.
In the past, if you wanted to adjust the view (zoom in or out) in a document or a web browser, you would have to navigate through several menus and submenus. Today, Microsoft and OpenOffice have simplified this
Formatting the hard drive of a computer can be a pain, but sometimes it’s unavoidable and needs to be done. Although operating system installations don’t take hours to complete anymore, it is still cumbersome to re-install all of your favorite software all over again on a freshly formatted drive. Some applications, like the media players, messengers, and browsers, etc. are needed the moment one boots into
Windows 7 users know that when they go to their Windows Explorer, the first window that opens up is for Libraries. Well, that’s fine and dandy, but what if I want to start off someplace else? What then?
Today we’re going to learn how to change all that. So locate your Windows Explorer icon on your taskbar, or click Start and type Windows
At some point, you may have been worried about what that green and yellow icon is doing in the notification area of your Taskbar. The problem is quite common with Windows 7 and Vista users, and is due to Mobsync.exe, which is mostly unnecessary for common users. Unfortunately, it keeps popping up every time you boot your OS, even if you have stopped it from within
We’ve all had this moment… the one where we realize that so much mismatched and random formatting has been done to our document that it’s time to just start over.
Well, not start completely over – I certainly don’t mean that we would want to delete all the document content – just the formatting.
As many of you
Shift + F3. How often do you use that one?
Remember its little gem? It takes the highlighted text and rotates it between the Title Case of lowercase and UPPERCASE letters.
But, what if you’re tired of rotating through the choices and just want to jump straight to UPPERCASE?
Can we find a quick
There are times when we need to visit a webpage frequently. Web pages that inform about score updates of a game and stock rates for a company are good examples. To keep up with it all, we need to open the browser every time we wish to take the glance at the updates. In order to negate this repetitive effort, let us see how to view
When I’m browsing the Internet, chances are that at any given time I’ve got at least 6 to 10 tabs open in my browser. Obviously, I’ll need to close one or more of those tabs at some point, but I’ll also need pin-point precision to click that little “x” to do so.
Look at it!
For many of us the font used in our documents, presentations and workbooks is a choice we actively make. When I’m creating something for others to see – which is most of the time – then I want it to look a certain way.
The easiest way to create something that I’ll like is to have my default font set to my
