A very general tip this time out, though I suspect it will still be news to a few people you work with ICT Tip 063 - Home, End, Page Up & Page Down.doc
This may or may not be relevant for your environment, but if it is, it's only ever a help for your users to know how to use the feature. ICT Tip 062 - Previous Versions.doc
Assuming that you're interested in this, I would suggest that you read my previous three blog posts first. This will put this new post into some context and it saves me having to write it all again!
