    ## Using Google as a dictionary:
    If you wish to know the meaning of a word go to Google and type define followed by the word that you are looking up eg. define dystopia or define phishing. But if it is an expression you have to put the expression between inverted commas eg. define "bad hat".

    ## If you wish to maximize screen space for the Internet page you are reading, all you have to do is to press the F11 button. This is a toggle button, that is, by pressing F11 again you will go back to its original state. Go ahead, see it for yourself!

    ## After filling up a form or typing in the key words for a search engine do you always bring your mouse to the GO, SUBMIT or SEARCH button and then click on it? Well, in most cases this is not necessary. All you have to do is to press the ENTER key.

    ## If you need to print a page from Internet but do not want to print all the publicity stuff, menu or banners this is how you go about it: Just highlight the text, map or pictures that you want to be printed then go to the top of the page and click on File - Print - Print Range - Selection - OK. that's all there is to it!

    ## 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 want Outlook Express to play a sound when a new e-mail message arrives? This is how you go about it. Open Outlook Express. Click on "Tools" at the top menu bar, then "Options" then "General". Under the heading "Send/Receive Messages" put a tick on "Play sound when new messages arrive" and "Check for new messages every minutes". Type in the time interval you wish to have your e-mails checked eg. every 5 or 10 minutes. Click OK and that is all there is to it.

    ## Do you want Outlook Express to access all your different e-mail accounts each time you open it? It's possible. Click on "Tools" at the top menu bar, then "Accounts" then "Mail" then "Add" and "Mail" again. From here on you will be guided step by step to type in your different e-mail accounts. For your Hotmail account you should select HTTP as server instead of "pop" as for the other accounts. Please note however that it is no longer possible to have Outlook Express access your Yahoo e-mail account unless you are willing to pay Yahoo for it.
