Internet Tips 21

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

Beginner's Tip: An icon by any other name...
Want to rename an item on your desktop? Highlight it and tap F2. The text box will then allow you to change the name.

Advanced Tip: To Run or Save...that is the question
When you are downloading a file off the internet you may get the option to "Run" or "Save". Either of these options will lead you to the setup for the program and install it on your computer, but the difference lies in where the setup file opens from.

If you click "Save" you can specify where the setup file goes ("My Downloads" or the desktop). From there you could put it on a disk or in a different location just in case you need to reinstall it.

By choosing "Run" the setup process starts once the setup file is downloaded to your temporary internet file. When you empty your temp file the setup download goes away.
