Computer Tips
« on: November 22, 2012, 11:08:00 AM »


I've found a feature on my computer that might be of interest to you all.

When Viewing  'You Tube'  on the full screen setting, it is possible to  jump the film forward by using the right arrow key instead of the mouse.  If pressed quickly you can proceed through the film at 3 second intervals.  Conversely, if you hold the right arrow down the film will keep jumping forward until you let go. It doesn't work on the small size screen.

It also works in rewind.

Anyone have any other tips on button pushing.  ????

Cheers

Ken

Kenny, I just tried your trick on my Mac.  It works, and it also works on the small frame size, too.  Thanks very much!

Alt+PrintScreen to copy the current window rather than the whole screen.

You know how when you COPY and PASTE from a webpage or some e-mails or even just another part of the same document, and it brings the formatting over and messes up your composition?
So then you open Notepad, do a PASTE, followed by a SELECT-ALL, then a COPY, and then back to where you wanted to be earlier to PASTE ... again. Or you spend time redoing the formatting.


No?


Then you won't want to look at PureText:

I've been using it for many years (works fine on a 64bit W7) with Control+Insert - I think I actually use it more than Ctrl+V.

While on the internet and you ever get a 'Pop UP' or 'Pop Under', usually a full screen
advert and it says "Click here to close this widow" etc -

              DO NOT CLICK HERE!!!!


It usually a trick for you to download a virus, malware or some other such 'rubbish'.
Leave that window alone, DON'T click on anything in it!

Close everything else you have open in the usual way, then shutdown you PC.
Restart, clear your cache and do a full virus check.

I've had it twice in the last couple of weeks.  >>:-(

I always think the best way is to just shut the PC down in a tidy manner, then restart.  If I have a "work" program open, if there is a lot of "work" involved, yes shut and save, but generally, just let the system shut the lot down.  And don't let the browser go to the last page when it offers.
