- Adding Icons to the Office 2010 Quick Access Toolbar
With the advent of Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the Quick Access Toolbar. Located on the top line of the Window, above any other toolbars, the Quick Access Toolbar initially has very minimal functionality. But, it can easily be customized by you to add your favorite functions within that program.
The Quick Access Toolbar is different in Excel, Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, etc. That is, each has its own Quick Access Toolbar that can be configured independently. You don’t have to make any changes to it, but changes in one program are independent of the Quick Access Toolbars in the other Office programs […]
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
A Look at Articles from Past Newsletters
I had a real thrill last week — and not the kind you like to get. My wife welcomed me to the day with "My iPad Air isn’t working right."
She said that, when she opened the iPad, it had an error message saying "No SIM Card Installed."
When I looked at it, I noticed that the top left corner, where it would display signal strength and AT&T (we’re on the AT&T network) said, instead, No SIM.
Fortunately, it was Saturday morning, so I was able to take some time to try to resolve the problem. The first try was simply to power-off the iPad Air, and then to turn it back on. No joy. Same error message.
My plan was […]

When you do that, many Windows programs will start and do whatever they do to that file […]
One of the features of Windows 7, and I think of Vista, too, is that you can easily maximize a window by moving it to the corner of the display.
Unfortunately, this happens to be a feature that has been driving me up the wall. I hate it. Fortunately, Microsoft built in an option for us to turn off this feature.
From the Control Panel, click on the Ease of Access header […]
There is a little trick to the way POP3 email programs like Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora and Thunderbird store the email messages you receive. A “deleted message” is not really deleted! Did you know that?
Outlook and Outlook Express store all the emails in one huge file, even if you have your emails split between multiple folders. Eudora creates a separate file for each email folder, such as Inbox, Outbox, Trash, Junk and any folders the user creates. Thunderbird similarly uses multiple files for emails.
The difficulty of both the one-big-file and the one-file-per-folder approaches is that computers take a significant amount of time to write large files. Huh? What’s that got to do with the subject? […]

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
