Internet Tip 12

Welcome to the next issue of "Internet Tips"! There are three sections to this email: a beginner's tip, an advanced tip, and a useful internet link. Enjoy!

Beginner's Tip: Screen Shots
Say you want to take a picture of what's on your screen and input it in a presentation or email. You can do that with SCREEN SHOTS:
Press "Ctrl" + "Print Screen" for a picture of the entire Desktop.
Press "Alt" + "Print Screen" for a picture of the top window you have open on your desktop.
*Then paste (Ctrl+V) into whatever application: email, Word, etc.

Advanced Tip: "Send To" Feature
Do you ever use the "Send To" feature that you see when you right click on something? It's very useful -- with just one click, you can send a document or other file wherever you want -- your CD burner, My Documents, a mail recipient -- anywhere. But maybe the place you want to send something isn't listed. Here's how to do it -- if you're using Windows XP:
· Right click the Start button and click Explore. This will open Windows Explorer.
· Navigate to the drive on which Windows XP is installed (C:\Windows for most of you), and expand the Documents and Settings Folder.
· Double click on the Send To folder (this is a "hidden" folder, so you might need to modify your viewing options first -- click the Tools menu, then select Folder Options, then the View tab. Under Hidden Files and Folders, make sure the button "Show Hidden Files and Folders" is selected. Then click Apply, then OK. The Send To folder should now be visible)
· On the right side of the Explorer pane (the tree of folders), right click on the folder or drive you want to add, and drag it (while holding down on the right mouse button) into the Send To folder.
· Release the right mouse button, and a menu will appear. Select Create Shortcut Here.

Useful Internet Link: Internet Case Digest
From the site: "The Internet Case Digest is a compilation of cases designed to bookmark, collate and monitor important developments in Internet law, including cases that have significant implications for Internet legal issues even if they are not directly related to the Internet. "
