Wahoo's Microsoft Tips Newsletter -
May 2002

In The News This Month...
First off, I must apologize to all of my dedicated readers for being late, again! I'm so sorry! And this time, no excuses.

Well, the weather here in McBride still isn't really very warm. We had a few nice days so far this month, but mostly it's been chilly. But regardless, PAINTBALL season is starting up right away!! We're in the process of getting our field ready for this weekend and soon will have an outhouse for your convenience. No more peeing in the woods! We're also going to have a few new games to enhance your paintballing experience. So there's your invite. Come one! Come all!

As mentioned in April's newsletter, we now sell hunting licenses. And now Limited Entry Hunting forms are available. Get yours now!

And then there's fishing. Lakes are officially open (if the ice is off) and rivers open up July 1, except for the Fraser River, which is open year-round. Here at Wahoo, we now sell custom built rods (fly and spin) and will repair your existing rod so you can go fishing again. Yippee!

Well, here in Canada this weekend, it's the first official long weekend of the summer. On Monday we celebrate Victoria Day. I think it means more this year than ever because of her recent passing. Long live the Queen! Anyways, have safe long weekend and if you are in the area, we will be open ALL WEEKEND!

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months, and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

Internet Explorer Tip: Find Stuff

Has this ever happened to you? You're looking for something on a long web page with Internet Explorer. You think it's there, but you're faced with seemingly insurmountable number of paragraphs, sentences, and words to hunt through.

Well, next time this happens to you, hit the Edit menu, Find (or CTRL-F for you shortcut lovers). You'll get a handy little "Find" box that lets you type in a specific word. After you type in your search term, hit the Find Next button and Explorer will look for that word on the page. If it's successful, you'll be zapped right to it.

Oh, if you're still using Netscape, you can do the CTRL-F thing too. Works with both browsers.

Windows Tip: Start Menu Folders

Are you met by mountains of software when you hit your Programs menu (Start button, Programs)? If so, why not place additional folders in your Start Menu?

You could make categories for your programs with these folders so you don't have to do so much hunting around. For instance, you could have a category for office-type apps, one for games, and one for internet. The possibilities are endless.

Now, before we get too far, a special note for XP users: In order to use this tip under XP, you will need to put your Start Menu into "Classic" mode. It doesn't work in any way, shape, or form with the "Standard" XP Start menu. To switch, just right-click the Start menu, Properties. Then select the "Classic Start Menu" radio button from the resulting screen. Hit OK and you're all set.

Now to actually add those little folders. For this example, we'll make a Games folder, but the procedure is identical for any other folder you want to stick on the Start menu.

1. Right-click the Start button, Explore. This should open Windows Explorer with focus on the Start menu.

2. Now, right-click a blank area in the right-hand pane and select New, Folder. Name the folder Games (or whatever you want).

3. Now you need to move your games from the Programs folder into the Games folder. There's a couple of ways to do this. XP users will probably find method 2 below is their best bet. XP doesn't seem to show all the program groups in Explorer for some reason.

Method 1 - Moving Via Windows Explorer
With Windows Explorer still open from the previous step, expand the Programs folder in the left pane (it's in the Start Menu folder) by clicking the little plus sign (+).

Locate your game program groups (assuming you've installed some games) from that list and drag them to the Games folder.

Method 2 - Moving Via The Start Menu
Click your Start button and you should see your new "Games" folder / menu, just sitting there waiting for you to drop some games into it.

To do so, hit your Programs menu, then drag the little icon for the program group you want into the new Games folder. Note that you can't drop the program onto the folder itself (that just adds it to the Start menu), you need to drop it into the sub menu part.

Grab the group with your mouse, then drag and drop to the sub menu.

Note that with either method above, you can drag shortcuts to this folder if you like.

That's it! Click your Start button and you will see the new Games folder listed. Click the folder and you will have access to any program groups or shortcuts you have put in it.
