In general, when I leave my computer, I put it to sleep. The reason I use this option is because I leave for extended periods of time. If I were working in an office and had to get up for only ten minutes or so, I certainly wouldn’t put the machine to sleep. I’d likely […]

A while back, I wrote two posts that had to do with the Start menu and the taskbar in Windows 10. In those posts, I shared a tons of information. The first post talked about customizing the taskbar, which included how to lock it, how to change its position and how to alter the size […]
One aspect of operating a computer, for who knows how long, that’s been problematic is the saving of a file or document as a PDF. If you’re not sure what a PDF is, it’s an acronym for Portable Document Format and it was created by Adobe. In the most basic sense, a PDF is a […]
This is going to be a very quick post because the topic is rather basic. Even though it’s basic though, I still love these types of posts because oftentimes, folks say, “Hmmm…I didn’t know that third method.” Some how, some way, people tend to pick up little tidbits of information in things like this. Okay, […]
I have a habit when turning my Windows 10 computer on. I like to push the on/off button and then walk away and do something else. I understand that Windows takes a while to get going, so I head into the kitchen to make coffee, get a bite to eat or whatever. Well, this is […]
If you’ve worked on a computer for the last, say, one hundred years, you probably know what a menu is. Menus are those things you click on that have a heading or a symbol and that offer more choices to move forward with. On my Chrome browser that I’m working on right now, there’s a […]
I’m starting to work with virtual desktops in Windows 10 a lot more than I ever have. I like the separation of apps and having the ability to organize my work so it flows smoothly. There’s nothing like clustering programs by project for some serious workflow. By the way, if you aren’t familiar with virtual […]
I have to be honest with you here. I’m not a big browser guy. Well, anymore that is. I suppose I was in a previous life. Like almost everyone else who used the internet since 1995, I browsed the web using Microsoft Internet Explorer. It was fine. I didn’t notice that anything was wrong with […]
I consider the taskbar in Windows 10 sort of like a home base. Everything is down there. I have the Start button, Cortana, shortcut icons for many of the more popular applications I use on a daily basis, audio volume settings, time and date and access to notifications. Without a doubt, the task bar is […]
I use File Explorer all the time. I click that little icon in the taskbar about ten times per hour for every single hour I work at my computer. I’m half expecting it to appear worn out as the years go on. When you first unpack your new Windows 10 operating system and begin using […]
