Part 1: At your computer

Introduction

This Part provides quick, simple tips on how to:

  • 1A. Save time searching the Internet;
  • 1B. Use time-saving shortcuts available on Windows and Macintosh computers that have Microsoft Word; and
  • 1C. Save time with your e-mail

We have based the Internet search tips on the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox.

We have based the Word tips on Microsoft Word 2003, but variations of the tips should still apply to earlier and later versions of Word.

We have based the e-mail tips on Microsoft Outlook, but the same principles apply to most e-mail applications.

As you read through these tips, it may help to have Google ready on your computer’s browser and to have Worksheet 1 open in Word in front of you.
