Email Etiquette

Stop YELLING at people :-) Have you ever written an email to someone and when you look up at the screen you realize you accidentally tapped the Caps Lock key? Now it seems like you’re YELLING AT SOMEONE IN THE EMAIL? It’s happened to most of us — especially those who look at their keyboard while typing instead of the monitor.

This Tech Tip Goes to 11

Try pressing the F11 key for a nifty trick while using the Web. The top & bottom of the browser will disappear. Press F11 again for the browser to reappear. This could come in handy when you’re taking screenshots of a webpage. For example, those who teach classes will sometimes need to create images of a webpage to place into a PowerPoint slide. Once F11 removes the browser from view, press the “PrintScreen” key to copy & paste a full image of a webpage.
