Maybe some of you already knew, this but I just discovered a new computer "trick". You can contol the size of the print on the screen by holding down the Ctrl key and turning the wheel on your mouse.

Nice for us "old eye" people. I got a new wireless keyboard and mouse. Too bad it didn't come with ANY directions! Thanks for the tip.

Here is a new trick I learned for Excel. If you hold down the shift-alt-e keys together there is a new menu option that appears called "copy picture". This allows you to create a "picture" of the cells in the copy range. You can then paste them in other applications like Word or other places in Excel as a picture or bitmap.

This is useful for printing information from several worksheets on to one piece of paper or presenting information where you don't want others to change your numbers.

I once taught my computer to roll over and play dead.
