    Hello Sir,

    Thanks for your response.

    I had manage to add some Tips n Tricks in the last few days. 

    I found already a bunch of tips n tricks given by experts, so to add a new one is just like do a research over the old one.

    Let me know if I can add some Tips for HP all-in-one pritners.

    Have a nice day

    Since I found it difficult to add a Tip say: which is applicable to all XP..

    So I go for product viz. window xp home edition then add the tips

    But when I look into the tips posted in Window XP Professional, my tip is not showing there (so I go add it again there)

    Thats why I add heading in Tips posted so far : applicable to all window xp, and blah blah blah..

    I made the tip to make easy for the client in the way I found suitable for myself and not designed to down other tips (if I do so)

    Being a Science Postgraudate, english grammer and syntax are not good.. but I will keep my point clear in making any new tip further

    Thanks for your suggestion and reply

    Yes that what I tried to get for all window Xp but the Option available is only -- For all Operating system.

    So I did not choose that one. 

    Yes the Tip was added successfully and shown in my profile. But how it can be viewable or searchable by the client (if you know let me explain)

    Since, I guess client basically go to home page of FixYa and then Click for HELP WITH ME and if the question related to his querry comeup there he will browse through it and also may check the tip..

    Probability of getting the solution in TIP for a product can be increased if selected "Applicable for All Operating System". 

    Anyway thanks for guiding me upto this, I am learning here lot.

Hi Scott, Been off for several days, a little vacation to rest up and recharge.
Do you still need help in trying to get a foothold on starting a Tip? Its not that easy, but can be deciphered. Let me know if you figured it out our need a pointer? What category in general did you want to place your Tip within?

    Generally speaking a Tip and Trick should be based on actual knowledge gained in the field and not a new way in which to write one out.

    They often get their impetus from this perspective: In order to simplify your responses to questions that get asked all the time, you write a Tip and then post a url to that Tip instead of writing out the solution over and over again. Tips can be rated too, either Helpful or not. A Helpful rating gets you four blue diamonds.

    Regards and honor the reason we have all taken the time to write Tips that work and function in real world problems.

    I went and read most of your Tips you've posted so far. I see many earning you four blue diamonds.

    It looks like you have the hang of posting a Tip down. As I wrote a few new Tips myself this week pertaining to Canon printers, I kept thinking of how to compose a Tip on writing Tips on FixYa.

    What would you say is the main thing you learned by trying that could help others? And, formatting your Tip helps a great deal too. And, you seem to have managed to take advantage of character formatting, with bold, underline and italics, etc. I'm certain there are other hidden formatting features left to be found.

    The only real constructive feedback I can give you is in your use of English grammar and syntax. Your writing reads like English is your second language. You have stated you are from England, Were you raised by parents who spoke a foreign language such as High German as spoken in Switzerland? Please don't be offended. Your points are made well in your Tips. I worked as an Editor for many many years and the reason Lauren referred you to me was that she knows I have been published in non fiction writing and these were mostly How-to articles and books that are cataloged in the Library of Congress here in the US. So, as a technical writer myself and having taught computer science in the college classroom, my own speaking and writing is based on those past experiences.

    In any case, nice Tips. Keep up the good work. Instead of rewriting an older tip, I'd build upon it and then reference that older tip, if this comes up for you (it did for me just the other day) I suggest you notify the author of the older tip. I did this myself and included a lnk to that other tip in my How-To Tip.

    When you first posted your tip for Windows XP Pro, and found it wasn't there did you look at your Profile Page and click on your Tips to see if that was added or not?

    I do find its best to post under All...... rather than a single product type.

    It is amazing just how many users come here, do the search, and then rely on the Tips Section for help. My Tips have earned me a lot of FixYa's as you are earning from them too. It is a secret garden on FixYa.

Hi My email account was hacked and due to the fact I didn't use it often I have not been able to provide enough security information to get it back and have therefore set up a new account Is there anyway...

Hi Lauren
You may need to go to the website of your accounts if you use or pay them online and modify your Account Profile Settings and update or edit your old email to new email.

If you don't have online account you really should call bank/phone company, etc and tell them your new info or yes they will be sending email to old address and you will not see it.

That is the most efficient way so you do not miss something important from the bank.

Other then getting everyone's email addresses and mailing out 1 email to all of them telling them your new email...but new email account won't have old address.

I purchased a Graco Lauren convertible dropside crib and assembled it today, but the dropside drops easily when you just touch the side. Help what should I do?

Products America is not able to provide parts for Graco cribs and therefor not very familiar with their hardware. However, they can provide you with contact information for the company. You can contactProducts America at 800-205-9642 or 800-772-1041 for that information.
