Basic Computer Tips

I have a large list on the main membership site for basic computer tips.

Casual computer users can sometimes be amazed how much easier a task can be when they are shown a basic tip.  Here is an example:

Enlarge Your View

When you are browsing the Internet, you may want to take a closer look at a particular page.  While that page is on the screen, hold down the Ctrl key and press the plus key (+).   Each time you press the + key the image will get larger.  While holding down the Ctrl key, press the minus key (-) and the image will get smaller.

Hold Ctrl key  press +         Enlarges

Hold  Ctrl key   press –        Shrinks


If your mouse has a scroll wheel, you can try this:   Hold down the Ctrl Key while you roll the wheel forward or backward.

Try it.
