Wahoo's Microsoft Tips Newsletter -
April 2004

In The News This Month...
I must first apologize to everyone for the lateness of this newsletter. I was very busy doing people's books to get them ready for tax season and the month of April just flew by.

Speaking of which, if you find you're falling behind on all those administrative tasks, fill out the Online Contact Form on the left at the bottom to see how I can help you out. It doesn't matter where you live, I can help you out. For more information on this, click here.

The new fishing and hunting seasons are in full swing and we've expanded our fishing and hunting departments. In our hunting department, we now carry targets, gun cleaning kits, gun oil, knife sharpeners, game bags, and more scents and calls. In our fishing department, we now carry downrigger supplies, bigger spoons and willow leafs for the big lakes and more of an assortment of lures.

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...

If you could count the number of times a cricket chirps in one minute, divide by 2, add 9 and divide by 2 again, you would have the correct temperature in Celcius degrees. How do they know that?

Windows 2000 & XP Tip: Compatibility

One of the biggest problems people have with XP is getting older programs to run. So how do you do it?

First make sure XP is completely up to date. By default, XP asks you to check for updates when you're online from time to time. Make sure you download and install your updates. Some of these are compatibility updates.

XP has a compatibility option for programs. It can make a program "think" it's running under a different version of Windows.

If you have installed a program and find it's not working, right-click its icon under the Start button, Programs and select Properties from the resulting menu.

From the resulting screen, click the Compatibility tab and then check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box. You should now be able to select what version of Windows you want to trick the program into thinking you're running from the little drop box.

Note: you can also adjust the display settings if your program needs to run in a lower colour mode / resolution. The program will usually tell you this information if you try to run it in the wrong mode.

But what happens if you try to install a program and it won't even install? You can do the same compatibility trick with setup programs too.

To do this, put your CD into the drive. If XP brings up the "What do you want to do with this CD?" window, tell it you want to "Open folder to view files." If it autoruns, cancel out. If you don't get the option to "Open folder to view files", that's OK. Just hit Start button, My Computer. Right-click the CD ROM drive, Explore.

Now you should be looking at the CD ROM's files. Look for a file called setup.exe (you may not see the .exe). Right-click that file and select Properties.

Next click the Compatibility tab as described at the beginning of this tip and pick an older version of Windows from the drop down box. Click OK.

Now double-click the setup.exe program and setup should run. Now you should be able to install the software.

Office Tip: Making Templates

Do you have a certain type of document you use over and over again? What you need to do is set up a document template. A Template is a file that stores any text, customizations or other items that you would use together frequently. Examples might be letterhead with a company logo, shipping labels set up with return address information, a monthly budgeting worksheet or any document formatting that you would frequently need to use.

Templates are very easy to create using the following steps:

1. Open a blank document or workbook.

2. Make any required changes such as fonts, margins, custom toolbars, headers, footers, logos, text, etc.

3.Save the file as a document template by selecting Document Template for Word and Template for Excel in the Save as Type field.

To retrieve your template, simply open the program, then go to File, New. A window shouud open displaying all the available templates. Select the one you need and open it.

Once the template is open, you are free to modify it as needed and then save. When you save the file, it will be saved as either a Word document or an Excel workbook, leaving your original template file intact and ready for the next time you need it.
