Tricia’s Rule #2. You already know this, right? How many times do you do it? I am always surprised at how often this solves a problem. It works in so many applications and in so many circumstances. Basically, right-clicking gives you a context-sensitive menu. That means, it gives you a list of things you can do with whatever it is you clicked on. I’ve been working with Windows since it first came out and I still have to remind myself to right-click when I’m trying to figure out how to do something.
These are my favorite tips for getting the most out of your time staring at your computer. Before you roll your eyes, give each a fair hearing. If you are already fully confident in some, give yourself a pat on the back. I’m really not being sarcastic. You’re probably a lot less frustrated than many people. For many of these tips, I’ll provide more detailed instruction on how to do it as I continue to write more (or point you to a source that does that). For now, see what might be worth your time for more in-depth learning.
