If you have an inkjet printer you may need to turn it off with it's own switch to avoid premature using up or drying of the ink in the print head. It needs to go through a shut down cycle that is defeated by turning off the power at the power strip. Read your printer manual. Ink will last longer and print quality maintained. (03/06/01)
Is your "favorites" list of web pages in Internet Explorer so long it laps over the bottom of the page? Are there sites there you don't remember ever visiting? Are there sites you haven't visited in months and can't imagine you would visit again? Can't find a way to get rid of them?
There is a way, but it's not obvious. Here's how. Click on the "favorites" button in the toolbar at the top of the Internet Explorer page. Then in the drop down menu that appears click on "organize favorites". Then highlight and delete those favorites you want to delete from the list. (04/02/2001)
