After a long hiatus, I am back posting again. I will be posting once a week to start and hopefully will be posting more often soon.
I intend to include sections for the less computer-saavy amongst us; I hope that those who do not need the advice will not be offended if I offer it to those who may.
I have been told by a new-style marketing guru that I should solely target seniors, at least to start. Since he is successful, there must be something to his advice, however, it leaves me feeling like I will ignoring a huge swath of people who need help.
This is the reason I will be adding a section to my posts. To help those who may wish to have some basic computer tasks explained.
My first post here will be “copy and paste”. I know that just about everyone who will read this already knows how to do this, but just in case somebody doesnt…
To copy a piece of text(a phrase, a web address, etc) move your mouse pointer (the arrow on your screen) to the beginning of the object you want to copy, click the left button on your mouse, and, while holding the left mouse button down, move the mouse pointer over what you want to copy (this is called “highlighting”), then let up on the mouse button.
Once you have highlighted the text you want, click on “Edit” then click on “Copy” (or you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-c (pronounced “control-c”).
Move the mouse pointer to where you want to paste the text you highlighted and go back to Edit and click Paste. Or you can use the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl-v.
There, that was easy. I hope I havent offended anyone by telling you something so basic that you already knew it.
See you next time.
