This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- Seven Year Anniversary!
Seven years of Terry’s Computer Tips weekly newsletters! That’s right. Seven years!
When I started my free newsletter seven years ago, I did not dream that I could keep writing a weekly newsletter for seven years. I was sure that I’d run out of topics and things to say during that time.

One of the great features of Excel is that we can hide individual columns, groups of columns and even multiple groups of columns. Similarly, we can hide rows. For example, to hide Columns E and F, just left-click and drag from the E header over the E column to the F header over column F […]

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…
- What is an IP Address?
Subscriber Joseph Murphy wrote to ask:
I am wondering how an IP address is determined and if it can be changed and how? Thank you, J. P. Murphy.
That’s a good question, Joseph. The answer can be simple or it can be used to educate. Whether you access your home network or access your Internet […]
- I Want a Real Backup Program
Subscriber Mike Gallagher wrote recently to ask about backing up his computer:
Hi Terry, I am confused about “backup” your computer. I see all sorts of ads and articles about backing up a computer. Most all of what I see is not a REAL backup. What I mean as a “real backup” is that if […]
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 Theme Framework.
