Back to Basics

Sometimes it is helpful to just learn a few tricks to make working with your computer just a little bit simpler.

Watching my husband try and highlight a word to copy and paste can be a little frustrating (for a geek). Here is a little known secret: double click on the word, in a document, email or on the web it will highlight the word. You can now copy (CTR + c) or cut (CTR + x) and paste (CTR + v).

You can enlarge the text on any web page. In Windows, press Ctrl and the plus or minus keys (for bigger or smaller fonts); on the Mac, it’s the Command key and plus or minus.

What are your favorite basics that you thought everyone knew?  Post your comments below.
