Wahoo's Microsoft Tips Newsletter - November 2004

In The News This Month...
Well, here it is November. Only 31 days left until the big fat man in a red suit comes!

Guess what I did? I decided to do my Christmas shopping early. I got presents for my son, my hubby, and the cousins! I usually wait until December 18 and by then all the good stuff is gone. Not this year! I decided earlier this month that I was going to shop sooner and avoid the disappointment. Yeah! I'm so happy!

I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers out there! Have a great feast!

This month's feature article comes from Maya Pinion. It's a website checklist for all you new web designers out there. You can check out Maya's website here.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Way To Annoy People In Your Office

Agree to organize the company Christmas party. Hold it at McDonald's Playland. Charge everyone $15 each.
Email your boss the message: I know what you did last vacation.
Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same outfits. Always wear them one day after your boss does. (This is especially effective if your boss is a different gender than you are.)
Install a set of buttons and lights in the arm of your chair. Talk into your daytimer.
Page yourself over the intercom. (Don't disguise your voice.)

Website Checklist:
10 Basic Things Your Website Should Have...

1. All short sentences and paragraphs (more reader friendly)
2. Lots of "white" space (more appealing)
3. Graphics (makes site more interesting and entertaining)
4. Links (widens reader interest & boosts search engine ranking)
5. Search engine listings (so people can find your site)
6. Banner at top (makes home page look professional)
7. Contact info (at least a valid email address)
8. About Me or About Us info (makes it more personal)
9. Privacy policy (adds credibility; spam policy, etc.)
10. Mission statement (defines ethics and purpose of your site). For more info click here

With these 10 website basics your site can be both professional looking and appealing. And, as a result, you can expect to get a more positive response to your website and your website content.

Windows Tip: Windows Searches

Note: I think this tip will apply to most recent versions of Windows, but I'm not sure as I have XP and it works on it. It doesn't hurt to give it a try!

Do you have a particular folder you are always rummaging through, like your "My Documents" folder? Here's a neat little trick:

If you right-click a folder and select Find or Search, you will get a Find (or Search) box that is automatically set to look in the folder you were just right-clicking.

If you try this with your "My Documents" folder, you will get a Search or Find box with the Look in: area already set to "My Documents."

Let's take that to the next level by putting shortcuts on your Desktop for folders you search through a lot. That way you can do the trick above without hunting around Explorer or My Computer. Just right-click the shortcut and you can select Search or Find from there.

This is how you do it:
Let's pretend for this example, that you have a folder in My Documents called "Work."

1. Open Explorer or My Computer. Go to the folder you want to make a shortcut to. In this example, "My Documents/Work."

2. Right-click, hold and drag the folder to your Desktop. When you release the folder, you will get a little menu with several options. Choose Create Shortcuts Here.

You should now have a shortcut on your Desktop for your "Work" folder. Just right-click and select either Find or Search from the resulting menu.
