Class Summary 10-23-2014

Today was all questions and answers. After discussing what a UNICODE is all about and it is a programming code that means a letter or number or special character. Not really something most of us have to know about or use. The programs we use do. So then we took a look at to create a picture of words. Click the Create tab and give it a try.

The sendto option on a right-click pops up a menu of programs or folders to send what you right-clicked on to. You can modify and add to that popup by opening the Run box (Win + R) and typing shell:sendto. It open a hidden folder in Windows Explorer. Right drag items into it and select Create Shortcut. Be careful left dragging as you may move an entire folder instead of making a shortcut.

Then we looked at adding a link to a web site in an email. Open the site you want to add as a link and Ctrl+L to jump to the address bar with the address (URL) selected.. Ctrl+C to copy it. Then go to the email you are composing and Ctrl+V or right-click > Paste and the link will be created. Also talked about using to convert a long address into a short one.

Can we tell who opened an email we send? Not with regular email. I use to send the club emails. It has a database of my email addresses and names. When I send my emails this way they each receive an individual email with their name in it. Later I can review a report of how many emails were read, who opened them, and who clicked on a link I included in the email. This is a free service. is a nice program that makes it easy to select what you want to print. For example when I get my bank statements by email there are extra pages within with advertisements or instructions, All I want to print is the details. iPrint intercepts the printing and allows me to be selective as to which pages to print as well as having other features. Check it out.

The difference between posting on someones Facebook page and send them a Message in Facebook is who gets to see the information. Post can be seen by everyone your friend allows. Message is private between you and your friend and cannot be shared.
