  1. ICT Tip #29 - Recent Documents in Windows 7

    by , 31st January 2013 at 02:18 PM
    Apologies for the lateness on this one, real life rather got in the way this end. I've just managed to send out a tip round here, so it's time I posted another one up here for your pleasure.

    This one follows on quite closely from last week's tip on pinning shortcuts to the Start Menu; this week it's ICT Tip 029 - Recent Documents in Win7.doc. The thinking being that you can pin your most used applications, then pin the most used documents in that application.

    by , 22nd January 2013 at 11:43 AM

    by , 15th January 2013 at 02:37 PM
    For the past couple of years, barring a hiatus when I was too damned busy getting 2008R2 set up on a Hyper-V cluster with System Center, I've been writing up brief weekly tips and emailing them round to all our staff. Less than a page of A4 (usually), pointing out one small but useful tip for using a computer.
