Windows Tips & Tricks
Doing Things Differently - The Spice
OK. This tip is going to seem a little weird to some of you. But as the old saying goes: "There's more than one way to skin a cat". Now, when you think about it, that's an awfully crude saying. But it's one of those phrases that no one actually means what they're saying when they say it.
Whew! Well anyway, in Windows there are normally two or three (or more) ways to do the same thing. Knowing different ways to get the same thing done is good (we think) because...well just because it increases your computer knowledge and if you're going to do something you might as well commit yourself to learning how to do it right.
To make a long tip short, which for us is the opposite of our normal procedure of making short tips long (are you still with us?) here's some difference ways to access things that you normally would have to access by going to the Control Panel.
How about "Add or Remove Programs"? Here's another way to get there without opening the Control Panel. Click "Start/Run" and type in:control appwiz.cpl
Want to access Administrative Tools without
opening the Control Panel? Here you go: Click Start/Run and type in:
How about a different way to get to "Folder
Options"? Click Start/Run and type in:
You say, "what about fonts?"
How about Network Connections?
Printers? We got you covered!
And there's a whole lot more of them you can learn. These are just a few to show you some examples. So explore, learn and try different ways of doing the things you do every day. It's a learning thing. Learning is fun. Learning is good. Right? Right!
