Internet Tip 17

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: Who can read cookies?
You might think of cookies as a security threat. Only the issuers of the cookies can read them. Other sites cannot read them. Cookies are pieces of information sent to a browser by a Web Server. The browser then returns that information to the Web server. This is how some Web pages "remember" your previous visits. So when you're shopping online and you look in your shopping cart, the contents are still there because of cookies.

Advanced Tip: Printing only certain cells in Excel
You can print only the cells of your choice in Microsoft Excel. This can come in handy when you want to print a small worksheet, or only the part of a worksheet. To select the cells, and print them:
  • Select the cells with the mouse.
  • Click on File in the toolbar.
  • Select Print Area.
  • Click on Set Print Area.

Now when you click the Print button, or select Print from the File menu, only the selected cells will be printed.
