If all of a sudden your computer refused to work (yesterday it was still working perfectly) this is the easiest way to get it back to work for someone who doesn’t know much about the workings of a computer.
This is how you go about it under Windows XP: Go to Start – Programs – Accessories – System Tools – System Restore. Then click on “Restore my computer to an earlier time”, then Next and click on yesterday’s date or even earlier. It will then restart and you would find your computer in the situation it was in when everything was working perfectly. By the way any file created after that date or emails received after that date would not be lost. It’s only the programs that will be affected (i.e. any program installed after that date – which was probably the cause of your computer crash – would be lost).
Do you find that the size of the words on your Internet page are too small or too BIG ?
Well, you can easily do something about it. All you have to do is to click at “View” in the top menu bar, then “Text Size” then choose the appropriate size (might not work with some web pages though). I took some time to discover this. It’s now yours – with no time wasted!
Do you have trouble using your keyboard because one of the key buttons got loose or is missing or got jammed? The solution is to type with your mouse (yes, your mouse). How is this possible? Just click on Start, then click on Run, type the 3 letters osk and press Enter. After this open your Word program and start typing by clicking with your mouse on the visual keyboard that is on your screen!
