Wahoo's Computer & Internet Tips Newsletter - October 2006

In The News This Month...
Hello and welcome to October's Newsletter!

Halloween is in 10 days (or less, depending on what day you're reading this)!!!!!! I LOVE Halloween!! I think it's the only adult holiday of the whole year. We can get all dressed up, decorate our businesses and homes, and scare people senseless. I love seeing all the effort so many people put into decorating their homes. Some people go all out. A few years back, the local fire department did up their fire hall as a haunted house. It was excellent! I just love it! Hubby and son go all out when they get dressed up. Last year hubby was The Incredible Hulk and son was Predator. They looked great! Next month I will post pictures of last year and this year. I can't tell you what they're going to be because it's going to be a surprise. You'll just have to wait.

Oh, I must tell you about this promo I heard on Sirius Satellite Radio the other day. They're having a FREE 2 day trial for Howard Stern and 75 other channels on October 25 and 26, 2006. You can pre-register here:


I've personally only listened to Howard for a bit and didn't really like him, but maybe it was an off day for him. To each their own.

This month I have included just 1 article for your reading enjoyment, so you have time to figure out what your costume is going to be. It's called MS Word Tip - Tear It Off. Hope you enjoy it!

That's that. Thanks for reading!

Did You Know...?

The estimated number of potential "trick-or-treaters" in 2005 - 5- to 13-year-olds - across the United States is 36.1 million, which declined by 284,000 from 2004. Of course, many other children - older than 13, and younger than age 5 - also go trick-or-treating.

MS Word Tip - Tear It Off

Many of us know that with certain toolbar buttons in the MS Office Suite, we have the ability to "tear off" the choices to create a floating toolbar.

If you didn't know about "tear offs," you're probably wondering which ones behave this way and how you can tell. Let me explain.

Here's what I get when I click the down arrow for my line spacing button in Word:

And here's what I see when I click the down arrow for font colour:

See the difference?

Yep, that's right. The font colours are headed with a bar at the top containing three horizontal lines. This is the critical difference.

If you move your mouse pointer over the horizontal bars, just click-hold-and-drag into the program window and you will "tear off" the displayed choices and create a floating toolbar.

Once you've got the floating toolbar, some of them will allow you to use the title bar to drag and dock it somewhere in the program window, if you think you'll want to keep the toolbar around for awhile. Otherwise, you can close it when you're done and it's like you never created it to begin with.

Now, let's branch off the "tear off" idea a little bit further.

If you take a moment to look through the submenus (such as the AutoText submenu in the Insert menu of Word), you may find a few with those same three horizontal bars at the top.

Once again, these three horizontal bars mean good things for the people who need direct and frequent access to the submenu.

Just like the toolbar buttons, if you see the three horizontal bars, you can click-hold-and-drag the submenu into the program window, thus creating a floating toolbar.

All you need to remember is three bars equals floating toolbars. Easy, wasn't it?
