Long for a keyword to help you search an article? You can hit Ctrl>F and type in your query, but in Firefox 4 just hit, the / key on your keyboard (located just to the left of the Shift key) and start typing.
Windows Copy as Path
When you right-click on a file or a folder you brings up an action menu with basic choices, like “Open” or “Copy.” If you hold down the Shift key when you right click in Windows the usual menu that pops up will now include an option called “Copy as Path.” This will copy the entire path of the file or folder to your clipboard, and allows you to paste it wherever you want. This is useful once you’ve located a file in Explorer and you want to upload it to a Web site. So, instead of taking the time to browse for the file on the site, you can just copy and paste its path directly.
While this is really a simple copy and paste exercise some people seem to have a problem with the concept, so here are some pointers and an explanation.
· When you highlight and right-click on what you would like to copy the highlighted portion goes into the Window's clipboard.
· You do not see it, but it is there.
· You can open another email or a blank word document or Notepad.
· You can then click Paste, and the text appears.
· If you copied some pictures along with the text that you do not want, instead of just right-clicking, go to Edit>Paste Special and click on unformatted text.
· None of the graphics will be included.
· You can then send out the email or save the text document as usual.
To keep from overusing a word when writing we go to the shelf and bring down a thesaurus. Well forget Roget, here are some thesaurus sites you might be interested in.
If you need a food substitute this is the site to go to. But it does more. It also has information, pronunciations, pictures and more!.
Further down you will find a listing of categories. Everything is there from fruits to vegetables, flavorings, baking supplies, fats and oils and even equipment. Each category breaks down into a list of items that fit the category you can explore further. Along with the food substitutes you get an education about the ingredients and equipment you cook with. Find it at: http://www.foodsubs.com/
The document writer in these two free suites have a way to find substitute words. Right-click on the word to be changed. Towards the bottom of the list that opens you will see Synonyms. You will see a list of other words that can be used. Choose one and it will replace the one you started with.
XP is user-friendly, and a lot has changed in the 12 years since XP was launched. But now that Microsoft has ending support, XP is highly vulnerable to external threats such as viruses and malware.
