Carol's Ramblings

It’s nice to Take a Break…

I do love publishing my newsletter, and knitting for charities and working in general, but I do relish those little windows of time where I get to decompress and do things at my own whim, instead of following a schedule.  You, know, wait to be inspired before I have to write something and taking my time while I do it, or taking a brisk walk because I feel like it, at my own pace, instead of doing it just to stay healthy.  You get the idea.

Having said that, I am going to seize that very opportunity in a few short days.  I will be taking myself to the seashore along with my daughter, son-in-law and the grands.  Will it be slow and doing things on my own schedule?  Absolutely not!  But it is sure to be loads of fun and a time to recharge my batteries.  Any time spent with my grands is good time!

I hope you all get a chance this summer for a brief respite from your daily duties and obligations and get to do things just because you feel like it – not because you have to.

Whatever you get to do, make sure you are kind to each other and help others when you have the opportunity. Let others know how you feel about them too – it will make you feel good as well.

Until next time, take care of you!

How to Open Multiple Documents at Once in Word

You can quickly load multiple documents in one easy step because Word provides a feature to do that that .

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Open the Open dialog box by clicking Ctrl+O. If you are using Word 2013, you’ll also need to click Computer | Browse after pressing Ctrl+O.)
  2. Rather than double-clicking on a file name, start to create a selection set. If you are selecting sequential files, click on the first file in the sequence, then hold your Shift key as you click on the last. You can add additional files to those selected by holding down your Ctrl key while clicking with the mouse.
  3. To remove files from the selection set, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on a file name you previously added to the set.
  4. When you are finished with your list, click Open.

Look around and explore in the Open dialog box. You will find it has many of the same options as Windows Explorer as well as a few more. Pay particular attention to the options available on the drop-down list displayed from the Open button (click the down arrow at the right of the Open button).
