Tips of the day: Getting your work done

To start a program, click Start, type the name of a program, and then click a program in a list of results. The underlined letters in menus indicate a keyboard shortcut method to select the item. Just press ALT and the underlined letter. You can minimise all open windows at once; just press WINDOWS LOGO + D. You can use your right mouse button to drag files. Try it and see what happens! To select more than one file or folder, hold down CTRL while you click each item. Deleted files and folders are saved in the Recycle Bin until you empty it. To open a document quickly, you can double-click its icon. If you work on a laptop away from your computer at the office, you can easily keep documents up-to-date on both machines by using OneDrive. You can use long filenames when you save documents. You can even use spaces! You can manage applications that are currently running by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ESC and clicking Processes. The Shut Down command on the Start menu enables you to safely shut your computer down. You can minimise neck strain by positioning your monitor at eye level. When you type, keep your wrists elevated or use a wrist-pad to minimise strain. Even if you don't shut your computer down at night, you can turn your monitor off to save power.
