I have two problems out here in Ennis, Montana.
Both involve Forwarding messages.
Q.1. When I forward a message and start to type something in the
forwarded message, it inserts my name in italics. Do you know how I
can get rid of that?
A. In Windows live mail, at the top click on File, Options,
Signatures, and uncheck “Add signatures to all outgoing messages”
or check “Don’t add signatures to replies and forwards.”
Q. 2. When I forward a message that has come into me that is NOT
in html for formatting and has a hyperlink I wish to pass along, the
hyperlink in the forwarded message remains in black and I believe it
cannot act as a hyperlink that way.
A. Put your cursor at the very last letter in the Link and hit the
space bar and if it underlines it, you are in business. Sometime
you think you are at the end and you are not, you might have to
do a back space to get to the very end of the link.
(Mike Seiler told me about this tip.)
Response: Joe, Many thanks. Both worked. You are right, it is hard to
tell if one is on last letter of link. Seems to be good to go now. Again,
many thanks,, and all good wishes. Henry

Subject: Colorado Doctor Finds Way To Treat Common Vertigo

This is something to try if you ever get the dizzies. It is different from
what the doctor usually does at his office. This you can do yourself at
home, and the studies say it works better.

Q Hi Joe:
My daughter gave me Windows 8.1 for Christmas.
Would you please advise me what virus, spyware and
security I should download?
Thank you very much Joe and have a good day.
A. For the first time in the history of Windows, you’ll enjoy protection
from viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, rootkits, and other malware from
the very first day you turn on your Windows PC--without spending a
cent. Windows 8.1 comes with an updated version of Windows
Defender.
To get your Windows Defender Antivirus up to date:
Go to Control Panel, Windows Defender, click on the tab Update, then
on the right click on Update.

Q. Joe, Happy New Year to you and Alberta!
I have a question about Windows 8.0 versus 8.1. You probably
have posted this and I am sorry if I missed it. What is the difference
between Windows 8.0 and 8.1? Also, have there been any problems
with 8.1? I recently purchased a new laptop with 8.0 and so far I like
it.
A. So glad you got a new Windows 8 computer.
WINDOWS 8 TO 8.1
There are a lot of good differences.
1. You can resize your Tiles, which is fantastic.
2. It updates your apps automatically.
3. You can get rid of the hot corners if you wish.
4. The weather tile will give you an interactive weather map
just like you see on TV.
5. If you wish you may go directly to the Desktop when you first
turn your computer on.
6. You have to do it anyway by Nov. 2015.
7. It does other things, but off hand I can't remember them.
8. Please give me feedback on what you like and don't like.
9. Go to the tips below.

Response: Hi Joe,
Thank you for the information on Windows 8 and 8.1 and the
tutorial. I have downloaded 8.1 and there are a lot of very nice
features. I really do like my Windows 8 computer especially the
optional touch screen and even more since I have downloaded 8.1. I
really enjoy having the tiles and as you mentioned the interactive
weather. Also being able to see and manage my mail from the tiles.
Thank you again for always being so helpful. My best to Alberta.

Had great comments on the broadcast:
1. Enjoyed watching you live tonight from my home computer! Good
information!
2. Great SIG tonight! I didn't get to see all of it, but I'm glad for the
live streaming. Looking forward to the wrap up email.
3. Oops. The DropCam dropped the feed - or my computer did. Only
got to see about half the presentation.
4. EXCELLENT!
Really a good presentation and your position was perfect to see you.
Your speech level was plenty loud and I only had my volume was
only about half. You speak very clearly – so no problem there.
Your demo of the two speech recognition programs; Google and
Microsoft, went really well.
5. You are an excellent teacher, and care about sharing your
knowledge. I did take down some notes and I will love using Control
z for sure.
6. Great presentation - you had a good music selection
You are the best teacher!
7. This was a wonderful presentation Joe! Thanks so much. I Really
like being able to tune into the live feed. Excellent job by you, Mike
and whomever else made this possible.
8. This is great- watching you right now- Good sound and video.
9. Very cool!

It’s a backup of everything. A “full backup of C:”, for example, would be

Incremental backup
An incremental backup includes only those things that have changed
since the last backup, and saves those things into a separate,
additional, backup file or location.

Our Windows Class will meet Tuesday April 14th at 7 pm and
after class questions, we will discuss and demo Printing Options,
Folder Options, Default Options, how to create a desktop shortcut
to a web site, the best options in Windows Explorer, etc..
Welcome to the wonderful world of computing.
Joe Isaac
========================================
Please remember Windows 8.1 is 88% Windows 7.
These items will be the same in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
1. Printing Options: Portrait, Landscape, Two-sided, print black or
color only, Print Last Page First
2. Folder Options: Single or Double Click, Show all folders, Display
or Hide different files or folders. Make new folders. Show File
extensions like .doc or .jpg.
3. Default Programs, which programs open which File extensions
.doc .jpg etc…
4. OneDrive, Save some Files and Folders there, save space on
your hard drive. Create a link and whoever you send the link, can
open the File or Folder. Great idea if you can use it. I love it. A
great way to use some of the 15 GB of free space on OneDrive.

One of the new technologies, the smaller USB Type C, and 3.1
will become mainstream in PCs around the time Windows 10 ships
later this year.
Type-C cable, has data transfer rates of the USB 3.1 protocol,
which can transfer data at 10Gbps (bits per second), double that of
USB 3.0.
And USB 3.0 is 10 times faster that USB 2.0, which is on most
computers now.

-----------------------------Comments on the broadcast:
1. Thanks for the great SIG. Here are some photos from this
evening's program.
2. Enjoyed the session tonight. Sound level was great, even from
members of the audience when they spoke. I kept having to
refresh the page because (I guess) TWC kept dropping the
connection every 5 minutes or so. Even though I missed quite a
bit, I learned a lot of new things (as always)! Thank you!
3. My screen went black while you were discussing screen shots
tonight. I heard up to the point of your explaining how to take a
screen shot. Where does Microsoft put the screen shot, and how
can I then access it?
Good job. . .interesting information. . . tonight. Thanks.
4. I did not know you could do so much with the Herald-Leader.
5. Caught the very end of your meeting tonight (where you were
watching Johnny Carson). It came through a little "blocky"
at times but otherwise it was very neat to be able to watch your
class online. It never did "black out" on me and the

sound came through very well. Thank you all for making this
available!
I have not been to any of your meetings for several years but I
used to come pretty often with my father-in-law when CKCS
was over on New Circle Road. We both always enjoyed your
presentations and learned a lot of "computer stuff" at your
meetings. Unfortunately he is now in a nursing home with
dementia but your classes are definitely "in there" with all the
memories of good times we were able to share together!

4. OneDrive:
Save some Files and Folders there, save space on your hard drive.
Create a link and whoever you send the link, can open the File or
Folder. Great idea if you can use it. I love it.
A GREAT WAY TO USE ONEDRIVE.
The big advantage of using OneDrive is that you have 15 GB of
free space and you can drag 20MB, 50MB or larger files or folders
there and share them. It also saves space on your hard drive.
VIDEOS take 30 MB a Minute.
You can use OneDrive to share photos, documents, and other
files.
First click on File Explorer in Windows 8.1. OneDrive comes with
Windows 8.1
It should show all your files and folders and at the top left show
OneDrive.
Drag the file or folder up to OneDrive.
Right click the file or folder and scroll down to Share with, click
on OneDrive.
Click on Get a link
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 62
Click on Create link, it will create a link, then click on Shorten link.
Highlight the link, then Copy and paste the link into your email and
anyone you send the link to can open the file or folder.
Caution, when you drag a file or folder from your computer to
OneDrive it actually moves them but you can always move them
back by dragging them to where they came from, or just make a
copy of the file or folder and you will have it in both places.
I drag mine up to OneDrive and leave it there, it leaves me more
room on my hard drive.
I created this sample folder: http://1drv.ms/1LFia4u for every
one to use.
The recipients that use the link should click on the first photo and
then click on Play slide show.
If they want a copy of the photos, documents, or other files or
folders then highlight what they want and click on Download, then
at the bottom click on Save.

it this morning, I found that “OneDrive” appears there now. Also,
Joe, the power options and search icons now appear on my Start

Once again, you have saved me!! As you suggested, I went to
Control Panel, Windows Update, and checked for updates. It said
that my system was set up to install updates automatically and
that I had four optional updates available to download and install,
one of which was the 8.1 update. I installed all four. Now I have
only one optional update listed as available—Silverlight, which I
do not plan to install.
Thanks!!

Joe I have a windows 7 system, I have a Bitdefender for Antivirus etc., but
lately I have been having trouble with WEB SEARCHY AND THEN DOKO
SEARCHY coming into my system, I have to UNINSTALL them before I
can get onto my browser search engine.
What am I to do, Is there a cleaner or system to load onto my computer
that will keep these Hijackers out of my computer which is only 2 years old.
A. Your computer has been hijacked by: Doko-Search.com Information
The Doko-Search.com belongs to the browser hijacker family. Generally,
most of the search engines are genuine and not harmful, but browser
hijackers are mostly aimed at generating advertising revenues. The
objective of the malicious code is to make users to click on displayed ads
so its owner earns a fee for every click. On the web you can find various
reports that the Doko-Search.com changes browser configurations, installs
a toolbar without user’s permission and prevents easy removal from the
system. It’s all part of the plan to secure the advertising earnings for the
search engine.
Response: Thanks for your reply, After uninstalling this DOKO SEARCH,
and got my browser back, my computer was ok last night, I have not been
on it today, I am on my IPAD.
I just now talked with DEVICE PITSTOP, they recommended using my
virus scan once a week which is to scan for hijackers and remove them
from my computer, I will start doing that and hope my computer stays
clean.
What would we do without you Joe, you are always very helpful.

2. Now go to the Start window. Press the CTRL + PRT SC keys. (i.e.

you might want to capture on the Desktop or the Start screen.

3. Defragment: Go to Start, in the search box type Defragment and
hit Enter. at the bottom left click on Analyze disk and it will tell you
if you need to Defrag. Defrag every 2 or 3 months. It takes an hour

computer and Quick scans after that. If my computer acts funny I'll
do a Full scan anytime. Full scans take a long time and you have

called the Notification area).
Go to Control Panel click on Notification Area Icons. On the right

down your computer and uses your resources.
Windows 7: Go to Start, in the search box type msconfig then hit
Enter, at the top, click on Startup, now go down through this list
and uncheck programs that you do not want to start up every time
you turn on your computer, you can always access these
programs by typing there name in the Start Search Box.
When you finish you should have no more that 4 boxes checked.
Be sure your antivirus program is checked.
Don't be afraid to uncheck items, you can always go back and put
the check mark back in. Only your Antivirus, like Symantec,
McAfee, AVG etc. and your AntiSpyware programs needs to be
there plus Microsoft item plus any other program you know and
want to open at Start Up.
Every 3 or 4 months you need to go back and check this again.
When you install new programs some have the nerve to put them
in Start up without your permission.

When you Start up your computer again, if you get a dialog box:

--------------------------------------------------------------RAM is an acronym for Random Access Memory. This is the part
of your computer that holds the programs that you're actually
running right now, such as the operating system, your word
processor (if you're running it), your email program (again, if
you're running your email program) and so on. It also holds the
data that's being worked on right now, such as the document
that's currently shown in your word processor or the email that
you're typing up.
Computers these days typically have somewhere between two to
eight gigabytes (two to eight billion bytes) of RAM. What's
important is that when you turn the computer off or if it crashes –
poof – anything stored in RAM is gone.

Q. Dear Joe,
I have XP still. A note keeps popping up that I need to download
drivers. I followed the lead which told me I had "15 missing or
outdated drivers"
but then wanted me to pay for them...
So my question is-Is this something I need to do or is someone just trying to sell me
something??
Thanks so much for your help.
A. Sounds like someone is just trying to sell you something.
Microsoft is no longer updating XP, they have abandon it,
and you may get viruses and malware.
This is only a suggestion, but you may want to think about a new Windows
8.1 computer. You will find a world of difference in speed, color, Internet
and etc. also your XP could conk out anytime.
You get a lot more for you money now that when you bought XP

Hard Drive 500GB or 1TB and/or

From Myra Engle:
You may remember Gonzales Gonzales from John Wayne movies.
He provided comedy in Rio Bravo, Hellfighters, and other John
Wayne movies.
Here is where he got his start as an actor when he appeared as a
contestant on 'You Bet Your Life'.
Now this is truly funny. Groucho takes advantage of the situation
based upon the audience laughter.
John Wayne saw the event and put him in his movies. This
interview will bring a smile to your face.

I have so many emails I made a folder for each folder I have like:
Inbox, Sent, Family, Computer, Misc. on the Desktop then drag them
into the main folder MAIL BACKUP. Works like a charm.
Will save them on a thumb drive and take them off my Desktop.

DLL is an acronym for dynamic link library.
A library, in computer terms, is a collection of software that can be
re-used by other software. An example might be a small bit of
software that converts text from upper to lower case. By providing
that in library form then any program that wishes to can use that
software, rather than having to re-invent it.

get about 50 to 70 messages a day and close to 50% are advertising. I put them in
Junk, (Block Sender) must about half of them continue to appear.
I have *(I think) increased my Spam level rejection but not much difference.
Any thoughts for how I can solve the problem or where to find some answers? Many
thanks.
A. I tell you what I do. I go to the bottom of each spam and click on unsubscribe
and this gets rid of 98% of them. Any left I do Block Sender. Hope you are having
good weather in Montana.

Dear Classmates,
100 Learning Web Sites
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 159
Window 7 is a great operating system. I really don't recommend you upgrade to
Windows 8.1.
When buying a new computer remember the finished version of Windows 10 will
be out in early or mid-2015.
Please do not download Windows Technical Preview.
But if you must and want to gamble then be sure you read:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-faq#faq=tab0
You will love Windows 10 it has combined the Windows 7 Start button with
improvements, with the Start screen or TILES of Windows 8.1. I really like it.
Happy computing,
Joe Isaac
----------------------------------------
This is the new Start screen of Windows 10:
1. At the top left
100 Learning Web Sites
click on this button for Sleep, Shut Down, Restart.
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 160
To the left of this Icon is probably your name, click on it and the options are:
Change account picture, Lock, Sign out.
2. Just under that that is your customize Start Menu, to configure it Right click
the Taskbar, left click Properties, click Start Menu, then click Customize. The
default is just Documents and Pictures. I added Control Panel, Personal Folder,
and This PC.
-------------------------------Under that is the frequently used items.
3. Under that is the Search blank similar to Window 7.
Windows 10 Search will search: Your Computer, The Internet, an App in
Windows Store and a portal to Bing.
100 Learning Web Sites
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 161
4. Taskbar improvements: click on the Start button and you get the new Start
Screen or the Windows 7 Screen.
5. The next item is an magnifying glass icon, click on it and get the Search blank
and in addition, you get Recent searches plus Trending now items.
6. The next icon is 2 little rectangles, click on it and it will show what items are
open. Or you can add another Desktop here, why anyone would need more than
one Desktop I don't know.
7. At the end of the Taskbar you will find the usual Time and Date, but now for
us Seniors, it also shows the Day.
On the Right side of all of the above you have your Start menu or TILES that you
can select, Resize, Pin or Unpin and turn Live tile on or off, if on it is active, on
the Internet, and up to date.
8. The squat Start menu
You can also resize the Start menu as you see fit, shrinking it down ‘til it’s squat
or dragging it almost all the way up to the top of the screen.
To make you Start screen larger, put your cursor on the top edge until the cursor
turn into a double arrow and then left click and drag it up or down to make it
larger or smaller. Sometime you have to do it a couple of times to make it work.
It’ll automatically expand horizontally as you add more and more Live Tiles to
the Start menu.
Great web site for Windows 10
http://www.pcworld.com/article/2690852/windows-10-in-pictures-see-thetechnical-previews-new-features.html#tk.nl_pcwbest
9. One of the main changes is that when you click on a Tile to open it, it no
longer fills the entire screen. It is in a window just like all the other items you
open and it has the
, hold on there is more on the left side click on the 3 dots
and get this screen.
100 Learning Web Sites
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 162
10. If you want to have to items open side by side, then open one and do Win
key + Right arrow, open the other one and Win key + Left arrow.
Another way is to go to the top of the screen left click and drag and bang it
against the Right side of the monitor, then do the same with the other item only
drag it and bang it against the left side.
Now to resize either of the above, put your cursor in between the 2 items and
when it turns into a double arrow you can move it left or right to resize.
You may also have 4 items open on the screen at one time but, that is not a good
thing to do.
===================================
From Mike Seiler:
It is easier in Windows 10, the Snipping Tool works the same no matter whether
you open an App from the Tile or a program installed on the desktop.
You open the App, open the Snipping Tool, click on new in the Snipping Tool
window, then you can snip what you want.
From Bob Brown:
Be sure to warn everyone that the test version of Windows 10 has very little
security and should not be used for important business stuff. The security
details will be implemented in the real release coming in a few months.

You wouldn't start your car with the windshield wipers, radio, heater, directional
signals, horn, seat adjustment, interior lights, parking lights, headlights, cruise
control, etc.. on.
That is what is happening when some of you start up your computer.
Way too many people have too many programs starting up, this slows down
your computer by using your processor, motherboard, system memory (RAM),
etc.

In Windows 7:
Go to Start, in the search box type msconfig then hit Enter, at the top, click on
Startup, now go down through this list and uncheck programs that you do not
want to start up everytime you turn on your computer, you can always start
these programs when you need them by typing their name in the Start Search
Box.

As you can see, I could have a hundred items starting up.
When you finish you should have no more that 2 or 3 boxes checked. If there, be
sure your antivirus program and any Microsoft items are checked. If you have
any doubt about an item, you can Google it.
Don't be afraid to uncheck items, you can always go back and put the check
mark back in.
----------------------------------------
In Windows 8.1:
RIGHT click an empty space on the Taskbar, click Task Manager, Startup, and
RIGHT click on disable any programs you do not want to start when you turn on
your computer.
If you want to use the program, just click on them Manually. Your computer will
work faster and use less resources this way.

Hi, Joe,

Microsoft installed 8.1 last night (without my permission). Saw a ton of updates
going through. Have adjusted and activated apps, reinstalled games, etc, but now
my sound doesn't work. Last time this happened it occurred after a large group
of updates. Couldn't get the sound back, so I finally just bought a Windows 7
laptop (Acer), but it has such a sensitive keyboard that just hovering fingers over
the keys will cause rapid and strange things to happen, making it almost unusable.
I went back to 8 after I remembered system restore (this was a couple of months
ago). System restore's action activated the sound again, and all was well until 8.1
was installed yesterday. If I go to system restore again, will that invalidate any
of the 8.1 downloads???
Pulling out my hair here! Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks and best regards,
A. Go to Control Panel, click on Sound and see if you can configure it to work.
Right click the sound icon on the right side of your Taskbar and configure.
Response: I've been living in the control panel and tried those things, but one
report said there was NO driver. (That's when I emailed you.) After you wrote, I
went back into Control Panel and went through the sound subjects again.
Suddenly, the speaker icon reappeared and the sound was back. I don't have
any explanation, but I sure am grateful. ................RE System Restore, from what
I've read, you're right. It would have taken out 8.1, and I certainly didn't want to
go there! Thanks so much for responding. Maybe my guardian angel woke up
and waved some magic wand. Anyway, I'm happy again. Best,
Me Glad you got it fixed.
If Not, this morning I was going to go on the Internet to see if anyone had a
solution.

Responses to the foreign Microsoft scam calls email I sent out.
First off, thanks for all the Thank you Joe responses.
Then other classmates had already had this call, some a long time ago.

I cannot believe that this is the first one of these you've received. We get them
about once a week for the last few years. The easiest way to get rid of them is to
tell them you have a Mac. They do t have an answer for that one.
-------------------------------I get all sorts of telephone telemarketing call and I on the no call list I just hang
up on them, Go figure .
-------------------------------I have received several of these calls, and I yelled at them that this was a scam I
knew about and even then they continued to talk to me. I just hung up. If I get
another one of these, I will do the same thing. But I think they need people to yell
at them. They deserve it for being crooks which is one of the things I called him.
-------------------------------We have gotten dozens of these calls! My husband told one of them that he had
just thrown his computer out the upstairs window so he didn't have to call any
more! Ha ha
-------------------------------I used to get these calls all the time... sometimes three per day. Finally I asked
the caller where he was calling from (they always have a foreign accent). He
admitted that he was in India. I told him that I knew he was a scammer and that
the FBI was monitoring my phone line. I have not had any more calls from them
since then (about a month ago).
-------------------------------Thanks, Joe. I got one of these calls several months ago. The (foreign) guy said
he was from Microsoft technical whatever and was calling because I was having
difficulty with my computer (as it happened, I was). He wanted me to grant them
access to my computer to fix the problem. I wasn't as quick or as smart as you.
Though I was REALLY leery, the timing of the call at the moment I was having
with problems Windows was eerily coincidental. Can't believe it, but I was
wavering. Thankfully, Insight/TWC had done me a favor, because my wifi service
had done its at-least-once-daily disconnect (another tale of irritation) and I didn't
have Internet service, therefore there was no way they could connect with my
computer. They said they would call back. Afterwards, I had time to come to my
senses and check online for the scheme (when I got my wifi back). Of course it
was a scam. When they did call back, I had some pretty strong words and
suggestions for them. Got another call about a month ago; this time a foreign

woman. Repeated my strong retort to her as well. I didn't give her time to go
into whether they wanted me to go to a web site or let them into my computer
from wherever they are. Wonder how many people fall for this?! I still can't
believe I was stupid enough to even consider the proposal for even a second.
Frightens me, because I consider myself to be at least a little bit savvy, and yet I
nearly bit on this one. Your response of asking for an email or a phone number
was brilliant. Well, you are, and A+ for YOU!
-------------------------------I also had this happen right before you helped us get our new computer.
It was a foreign voice and he said he was calling to help with Windows, that he
knew we were having problems. I thanked him for calling and hung up. There
was a national report today on Good Morning America about this very thing.
Thanks Joe!
-------------------------------I'm still waiting for my million $ Raffle Ticket winning money from this same guy
LOL
-------------------------------Thanks, Joe. We have to be on our toes.
-------------------------------I just received the call from “Microsoft” claiming that my computer needing
fixing. They must be working the area. I told them that I knew it was a scam
and good bye! They have not called back.
Thanks for the warning.

If you need to know whether you have a 32 bit or 64 bit system, go to Control Panel and
click on System and it will show you.
PS Windows 8 comes with Windows Defender antivirus already installed.

This same screen is on Windows 7, Windows Security Essentials and Windows
8.1, Windows Defender.
(Windows Defender and Security Essentials are kissing cousins.)
The first Scan I run is Full, after that I just run the Quick Scan. If my computer acts up or I
think I may have picked up a virus, then I run the Full Scan.

Crash course on Windows 8 to 8.1
1. Boot straight to the Desktop. Right click the Taskbar Left click Properties, at
the top click Navigation put a check mark in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 8th blank.
2. You can have the same Wallpaper on Desktop and Start (TILES)
3. The 8.1 edition of Windows pins fewer apps to the Start screen by default, and
has moved the location of the full apps list - you can now find it by clicking on
the down arrow in the lower left corner.
Click or tap the drop-down menu by the Apps heading to change how the items
are sorted
4. Quicker shutdown: Windows 8.1 retains the shortcut menu that appears when you
right-click in the bottom left-hand corner of the desktop also has Shutdown in upper
Right Hand corner of Start screen.
Also has a Search button there.

Good Evening everyone, and thanks Dad
I am going to take a few minutes and tell you about music streaming services. For those of you who like music, they are
a wonderful, and inexpensive, or free, way of listening to your favorite music.
A streaming service allows you to search for your favorite music, and create playlists that you can access at any time
while you are on-line, or over your cell service on a smart phone. I am a big music fan.
The number one streaming service is Spotify, others, including Rapsody, which is very popular. Tonight, I demo Spotify.
First you have to register by going to their website at www.spotify.com .
100 Learning Web Sites
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 191
A large screen will appear asking you to try the premium service for free for 90 days. The premium service is virtually the
same as the free service, but you hear a commercial on the free service every few songs. If you drop down below that,
you can register for the free service without having to give credit card information.
Once you have created your account, you can create playlists of your favorite songs, or store entire albums in your “MY
Music”. The system will suggest other artists you might like based on your selections. You can send this list to your
friends who are on Spotify.
Another great website is Pandora, which allows you to create a “radio station” based on the music you like. This is fun
because Pandora picks the music it thinks you will like, so you are not always listening to stuff you have picked, but it is
music that you will probably like, perhaps artists you are not familiar with. For example, if you like Frank Sinatra, you can
make a Frank Sinatra station, and it will play Sinatra and artists like him. There are thumbs up and thumbs down keys
which you can use, and Pandora learns over time what you like and don’t like.
Go to www.spotify.com
Register for the free service or the premium service
Select Search and type in any artist you would like to hear
Select “Show all results”
If choosing one song for a playlist
Scroll down on left to “New Playlist, type in the name of the artist and then load the song
To save an album, select the album, open it and click on the “Save” button at the top.
-------------------------------Q: Joe,
I'm considering buying an external hard drive and using some software to back
up my complete data and programs from my current computer.
Do you have any recommendation on the software or the best way to do this?
Thanks for your help.
A: I will tell you what I do. I use to do this with an exterior hard drive. Now I use a
thumb drive, or flash drive they come 16, 32, 64, 128 I use a 32 GB.
I click on File Explorer in Windows 8.1, and Windows Explorer in Windows 7.
I right click on Desktop, click on Send to: and click on the thumb drive and it
copies that data. I do the same thing with Documents, Pictures, etc..

You have to install Programs from your CD, DVD, etc.. I copy my data once a
month. I also keep a copy in my safety deposit box at the bank, I do this one
every 3 or 4 months, just to be on the safe side.
Most computers have USB2 ports. Newer computer have both USB2 and USB3
ports. The 3 is 10 times faster. The 3.0, 32GB flash drive on sale cost $15, the 2.0
is close to that price.

A: Sleep stores your computer's state in its memory. Starting up is fast, but if power is lost,
the memory is wiped.
Hibernation stores everything on the hard drive and then shuts down the computer. But it isn't
susceptible to a power failure.

Holding down the Shift key as you right-click a file or folder will add an
absolute ton of new folder locations to the basic Send to menu.
Tweaking the Send To menu
What's that, you say? None of the stock Send to options offer the
ability to shuffle your files to the locations you commonly use? Force
the issue!
First, create shortcuts to the folder locations you're like to add to the
Send To menu by right-clicking them, then selecting Send to >
Desktop (create shortcut). Once that's done, open Windows Explorer,
then type shell:sendto in the location bar at the top, followed by Enter.
You'll be brought to the location that holds your Send To options; just
drag and drop in the shortcuts to the folders you want to add to the
tool.
My best keyboard action: Erase the past
Control + Z. The keyboard shortcut undoes your last action, or last

Q. Question I emailed to Jerry Heaton in Florida.
Tell me again step by step how after I set a headline or topic head
at a certain font and size, I can just paint or something you
showed me and I can do each of the headlines or topics that way
by clicking on them
A. I use the format painter – the paint brush on the home tab,
upper left.
 Set one heading the way you want it. Font type size color,
etc..
 Click on paint brush TWICE
 Then you can paint that heading wherever you highlight as
many times as you want.
 If you click on the paint brush only once, it only works one
time.
---------------------------------------How to change the Default in Word 2007:
Open Word, at the top middle, click on the down arrow of Font,
I have mine set on ARIAL, BOLD, 14, AT THE BOTTOM left click
on Default.
-----------------On the Ribbon in the lower left corner, click on Clipboard, now you
can use up to 24 copy and paste items on the clipboard in Word
2007. Control C to Save and Control X to Cut, It is saving me a lot
of time.
On the left you'll see what you saved and there will be an
Clipboard in your Taskbar that counts how items you have saved.
You can paste them individually or all at once.

by putting your mouse cursor at the first character you want to
copy and, holding down the left mouse button, drag the cursor to
the last character you need copied. As you drag, you'll notice
everything gets highlighted (selected).
2. Do CTRL C on your keyboard.

like to insert the word processor text. Then do CTRL V on your
keyboard.

Control Z will undo a mistake. If you delete something, Control Z
will bring it back. I love Control Z, use it a lot.
Play Solitaire if you need practice with your mouse.
Let me repeat and repeat and repeat, when typing a document,
save the data every few minutes so if something happens to your
computer you will not have to do the work all over again.
Just do Control S very often.

SINGLE CLICK. (Why double click !!!!)
(This Is Really Great !!!!)
Go to Control Panel, click on Folders Options.
Select Single Click. Also click on Underlined icon titles only when I
point at them. Then click OK.

Should you leave your computer on 24 HOURS A DAY?
NO!!
I shut my computer down every night. If I'm going to be gone
several days I not only shut it down, I unplug the computer from
the wall and unplug the Internet line.
You are wearing your fan motor out and pulling dust thru your
computer.
Kentucky Utilities will love you.
With the increased use of DSL and Cable Internet and with the
growing threat of hackers and worms, it makes even more sense
to shut your computer down when not in use.

You really make me feel good.
Thank you so much.
Here are some email comments on the General Meeting.
Best regards,

Joe I was delighted to be in the last row of your packed house last
night, and loved every minute. You are a marvelous person and your
help has kept me sane and moderately successful as a computer user!
Here's to you, Joe! Barbara Markesbery
================================================================
Joe,
Congratulations on a great meeting with outstanding attendance.
You certainly have a way of explaining Windows in an easily
digestible format.
My best count was 133 in attendance. Of course, I might have missed
one or two that were hidden from my view.
Thank you again for the GREAT presentation on Windows Tips. You are
a tremendous asset to CKCS.

Thanks for a great job. The only trouble is that the regulars must

Thanks again for a great class.
Mitch Alcorn
=============================================
Joe, I helped Frankie with a class this morning and she gave me a
copy. These are great. You did a terrific job. Thanks for the work
you put into it. Thanks! Jeannine
==========================================
I enjoyed the General Meeting and very much appreciate all the time
and effort you put into getting the Top 50 Hints to us all. Also
appreciate your dedication to the SIG classes and to CKCS. Do you
have time for anything else? Jan Wisnicky
==========================================
I might be a little late with my accolades but I want you to know how
great the CKCS meeting was and how I treasure "50 Tips". Amidst all
the chaos of (911) that's a way for us to remember Tuesday, I
'unstressed' myself by trying out the floppy--worked like a charm,
got it perched on my desktop under "50 Tips.doc" and am ready to go!!
Being a visual person, I must admit that I printed out all of '50
tips' just now. I am overwhelmed with appreciation as I look through
the pages and realize HOW MUCH THOUGHT AND WORK went into this
document/BOOK.
Thanks for the know-how you have shared so freely and willingly with
us through classes and personal communication. Since my first
encounter EVER with a computer was January 2000, I've "come a long way
baby!!" and a major part of my knowledge I attribute to YOU.
Heartfelt thanks and appreciation, Kay Stivers
==========================================
Joe: I also appreciate your classes. I know you spend
countless hours before and after the actual classes and
are always well prepared. You play a very large part in
making CKCS the success that it is today.
I wanted to attend the XP session, but could not fit it
in. Perhaps one day we could get someone from @ Home
to put on a meeting or at least a part of one.

I know my Top Fifty is just what the computer doctor ordered.
Thanks, Bill Gordon
==========================================
You really go the "full mile" for CKCS members. The SIG meetings
and tips you publish in the newsletter are great contributions - and
now you have organized and distributed a disk containing over 60
pages of information and helpful hints to over 133 members.
It is an absolutely fantastic compilation of facts that computer
users, both novice and experienced, will find most helpful. It was
also good to get the index guide you printed to accompany the disk.
Thanks so very much.
Your knack of making learning such fun - and your apparent enjoyment
in sharing your knowledge with us is really appreciated. Ramona McGlennon

5. The Photos app: While looking at the photo, Right click,
select, then left click Edit, then select what you want to do.
(You may prefer to use your old photo program; I'm using my old
Windows Live Photo Gallery program.)
6. MAIL: The Mail app, which comes
with Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1, doesn't support adding
email accounts that use POP (Post Office Protocol). This is the
technology that allows email to be downloaded from the server to
your PC.
You may prefer to use your old email program; I'm using my old
Windows Live Mail program.
7. Internet Explorer 11: To pin a web site to Start, IE 11 must be
your default browser. From the TILES only click on IE 11, go to the
site, at the bottom RIGHT click on the Star, now click on the Pin,
then click on Pin to Start.
Now if you wish you may go back to Default Programs and make
Google Chrome your default browser the Web sites you put on
Start will still work, but open in IE 11 instead of Chrome.
