Vertical Text Selection In Word

Here is a nifty tip for selecting text in Word that many people don’t know about. Normally when you select text in Word, you do so horizontally, from right to left or left to right. However, what do you do if the text you need to select is vertical; for example, what if you want to bold the first word on each line? You can select and bold each word individually or you can make a vertical selection.
To make a vertical selection, hold down the ALT key as you drag the mouse pointer to select the text. If you want to select the first word on each line, hold down the ALT key and drag the mouse pointer up or down to highlight each word.
When you’re using this tip, remember that you can make a vertical selection anywhere in your document.

A More Secure Way Of Performing Administrative Tasks In XP

Most network related tasks must be performed by an administrator. An administrator account does exist by default. However, to increase security, it is usually recommended that you rename the administrator account to something else and create your own user account to log on with.
Once you have your own account, you can add it to the built-in administrators group to give yourself the necessary permissions to perform network related tasks (as well as other system tasks). In Windows XP, you can do so using the following steps:
1.Right click My Computer and click Manage.
2.Expand Local Users and Groups.
3.Highlight Groups and double click Administrators in the details pane.
4.Click Add. Enter the name of the user you want to add to the group. Click OK.
5.Click OK.
The user account you just added to the administrators group will now be able to perform network related tasks on the computer.
