January 20161-5-2016Submitted by: David SmithOk, after Rhonda sent out the survey about what version of Windows you are using several of you asked about the system tray (what is it and where do I find it).So, below is a quick tutorial of the Windows components.The system tray (notification area) contains the clock and a list of notifications and tools that are running at startup.If you want to know more about the desktop and all the functions available follow the link below.https://www.winhelp.us/windows-desktop-start-menu-and-folders.htmlNOTE: Some parts of the desktop will look different depending on the version of Windows you are using. Windows 8 and 8.1 are very different. Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 10 are much the same.Hope this helps you as you learn more about using the different parts of the desktop. 1/25/2016Submitted by: David SmithHere are a few tips using Chrome.Drag to SearchHighlighting a word and performing a drag and drop is fundamentally the same as performing a cut and paste, so it stands to reason that you could just highlight a word or phrase and drag it into the URL box to perform a Web search. Conversely, you can also just right-click on highlighted word or phrase and you will prompt a pop-up option to conduct a Google search (on a Mac, Control-click on a highlighted word).Drag a URL to the Bookmarks BarIf you come across a website you will want continual and easy access to, you can quickly add it to your Bookmarks Bar by highlighting the URL and dragging directly down to the Bar. Boom. You can edit it later if you want to change the name. You can drag a URL in from sources other than Chrome as well.Open Accidentally Closed TabsHave you ever mistakenly closed a tab? We all have. BUT thankfully Chrome is a forgiving browser and makes it possible to get it all back. All you have to do is press Control-Shift-T (Command-Shift-T on a Mac) and Chrome will reopen any recently closed tabs. You can keep hitting it for more closed tabs working your way back through your browsing history.Hope you find these tips useful.
