Class Notes 12-14-2017

More this week on Facebook. We looked at saving a picture from someone's facebook page and then using it in an email or private message someone else or to even modify (change size, crop, add words on the image) it using the Paint program. Looked at Irfanview (available on ninite) to resize a picture.

We talk a lot about tagging pictures and that when you tag someone in a picture the picture is seen by your friends and by the friends of the person who posted it.

We looked at notifications and how to turn off email notifications. If you are getting notifications on your cell phone I suggest going into the App on your phone and turning that opeiton off or you'll be inundated with a bunch of notifications daily.

I reminded them of the use of the print screen key on the keyboard. When you press it an image to what is on the screen is copied to the clipboard. Hold the Windows key down and press it and a png file of the screen is placed in your Pictures folder in a folder called screenshots.

What Are File Attributes

Printing a Web Page
Ctrl+P and choose Save as PDF. Then you can view the PDF and print the pages you want to have a hard copy of. And the links on the page will be active in the PDF view.

Sleep vs. Hibernate
While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power.

Under System Settings you can change what happens when you do certain things like closing the lid on a laptop. And define the options such as set your sleep and hibernate keys in the start menu.

In addition to my own research, I want to give thanks to Harold at the Club, Newsletter, and for the useful ideas we take a look at each week.
