Marilyn Stenning wrote recently to ask how to get links in her emails to work.

Please contact your system administrator” […]

This Week Online:
With my new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site, I now publish articles individually rather than as an on-line issue. That also means that I can link directly to the articles, as I’ve done below:
- New Year’s Resolutions for Computer Users
Long-time readers of my Terry’s Computer Tips email newsletters will recognize many of these New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve updated them a bit and I think they’re still very valid. New Year’s Resolutions are a traditional, annual opportunity to make resolutions for the ways we’re going to improve our life in the coming year.

This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
I love the new design 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 Theme Framework.
The following are new individual articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally posted in my email or online newsletters.
As above, these are now direct links to the individual articles…

Hi Terry, I’m running Win7 and one of the things I find annoying is when you have to go to the program menu window and search from top to bottom on what I consider a unorganized list. How to I setup the list in alphabetical order? […]
- Do You Use Outlook Express?
Do you still use Outlook Express? If you do, stop right now (come back later and finish reading my articles) and compact your Outlook Express email folders. Don’t get in trouble like so many OE users are doing. OE does fine for a long time, but eventually, if you don’t compact the folders, Outlook Express will not let you delete any emails […]
