Carol’s Ramblings

The weather finally feels like Fall. Well, actually, this week it kind of feels like Winter what with the temperatures being in the 30’s and 40’s.  I am not a big fan of cold weather.  It just makes me want to curl up in my home with a good book or some knitting, baking or sewing.

I think I have some pretty good articles for you this month and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them for you.

Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas and so I will be busy, busy, busy.  ‘Tis the season as they say!

Until next time, please take care of yourselves and please look out for those less fortunate than you. Above all, be grateful and be kind to everyone you meet.

I don’t know about you, but I am usually as busy as a one armed paper hanger with the itch at the office. That being said, I absolutely avail myself to all the quick shortcuts I can to save time and keystrokes. I really like to use the hot keys in Outlook to save more time.

Some of my favorites are listed below:

How To Quickly Select Text

You should know by now that you can use your mouse to select text by holding down your left mouse button and dragging your mouse to make a selection. There is, however, a much quicker method to select text using your mouse.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Place your cursor where you would like your selection to begin.
  2. Move your mouse cursor  to where you would like your selection to end.
  3. Hold down the Shift key as you click once using your left mouse button.

Multiple clicks of the mouse button can also be used to select text. Double-clicking on a word selects a word, but triple-clicking on a word selects the paragraph in which the word occurs.
