Tip

Protecting your documents with password !!


You can protect your document by applying password so that unauthorized person can not display as well as modify your document. You can apply two types of passwords:
Password to open the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to open the document, otherwise you cannot open the document.
Password to modify the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to modify the document, otherwise your document is opened but you cannot modify the document. It means that your document becomes read-only.
To apply a password to document, follow these steps.
* Open Save As dialog box by selecting "Save As" command from File menu.
* Click "Tools" button of Save As dialog box and choose "General Options" from drop down menu, "Save" dialog box appears as shown in figure below.
* Enter first password in "Password to open" text box and second password in "Password to modify" text box (if required) and click "Ok" button of dialog box. Microsoft Word will open "Confirm Password" dialog box for the confirmation of passwords. The maximum length of password is 15 characters.
* Re-enter the password to open and password to modify and click "Ok" button of Confirm Password dialog boxes one by one.
* Click "Save" button of Save As dialog box.

I have lost yahoo as my home page,and cannot get to my email


There is no relation between Yahoo as home page and accessing yahoo mail.

You can always open an internet browser and type the url www.yahoo.com. On the webpage you can click on "Mail" at the top of the left column. This will take you to the Yahoo Mail site. There you can type your user name and password and login.

Anyway, if you want to set Yahoo as home page you can open your internet browser and click tool->Internet Options. This will open a dialog box. Under the "general" tab there will be a text box under "Home Page". Type www.yahoo.com in the box. Click OK.

Close the browser. When you open the browser again yahoo home page will come.

I have a dell c521 desktop I bought it from a rental place I do not have a reboot disc I've called dell suport they were no help is there any keyboard configureations to get this rebooted


***Using the Start Menu
  • Press a Windows key (the ones with the Windows symbol on as shown right), this will open up the Start Menu.
  • Use the cursor keys (the ones with arrows on) to highlight 'Turn off Computer' and press Enter to select it
  • A dialog box will open. Use the cursor keys to to highlight 'Shutdown computer', 'Turn off' or whatever your version of Windows says, and press Enter again.

***Using the 'three finger salute'
Hold down Ctrl and Alt, and press Delete.
Windows 2000 and XP Home Edition users will be presented with a dialog box with buttons on:
  • · Use the cursor keys to select the 'Shut Down' button and use Enter to select it.
  • · Select 'Shut down' from the list using the cursor keys and press Enter one more time.

In other versions of Windows the Task Manager will open:
  • · Hold down Alt and press U to open the 'Shut Down' menu.
  • · Use the cursor keys to highlight 'Turn Off' and press Enter.

***Hit Alt F4 'till you can't any more
The final method of shutting down that I will explain here is to hold down the Alt key and press F4 repeatedly. This will close every application that is open on Windows and eventually will close Windows itself. You may be asked if you want to save files by some programs, if so use the cursor keys and Enter to get past these dialog boxes.

I have no sound


Look in the bottom right corner of your screen.

Here you should see a small speaker icon. Click on this and make sure the "mute" check box is not checked.

If not, go to Control Panel: Harware and Sounds: (under Contro Panel Home(top left corner after entering control panel home)

After clicking on hardware and sounds, find the next item in the list for sound options. Locate the third one and make any appropriate or needed changes. Close tall dialogue boxes, restart computer and then test speakers with a cd or movie or other media on computer or external drive or method.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
