Learn How To Triple Mouse Click To Select A Block or Line Of Text

April 18, 2017

There are occasions; when working with text, that we need to copy (or cut) blocks of text (or paragraphs). Typically we will hold down the left mouse button and drag (highlight) the text that we desire to copy (or cut) and then paste the text into another application or another location within the document. This method can sometimes be quite clumsy; especially if it is a large block of text.

An easier and faster method of doing this is simply left mouse click (quickly) 3-times anywhere inside the block of text (or paragraph) that you desire to highlight and copy (or cut). Like magic, the block of text will be highlighted… This trick also works if you want to quickly highlight and copy a web address in your browser’s address bar.

You may have to experiment with this; but, I have found that tip works in just about any application where text is involved (such as your web browser, word processor (such as MS-Word), etc…) and is a good tip to train yourself to use.

BONUS TIP:  Need to copy just a word?  Simply double click anywhere on the word and it will be automatically hightlighted.

How to Look More Productive at Your PC

December 10, 2009

If you are looking for a way, on the job, to appear professional and give that illusion you are really busy, then give cantyouseeimbusy.com a try! The site offers (3)-three hard at work games that is played inside your web browser that emulates (gives the illusion of) a word processor and spreadsheet program. All three games require Adobe Flash to be installed on the PC to work (which is very common anyway).


Disclaimer: If you lose your job because of your increased productivity, please do not blame What’s On My PC…

image Cost Cutter – In times like these everyone is always telling you to keep the costs down. And that’s just the challenge in this game. Keep the data as low as possible and your points will sky rocket.

Jarte! WordPad on Steroids…

December 10, 2008

Most computer users (at home) have no desire to expend a large sum of money for a word processor (i.e. MS-Word, WordPerfect, etc.); nor do they need the complexity that comes with it.  What it comes down to is this; why spend hundreds of dollars so that you can just type a letter, create a list, keep notes, etc.? Most computer users (at home) have experienced at one time or another WordPad.  WordPad is the word processing program that came installed with your operating system (i.e. Windows XP, Vista).  WordPad, I have found, just does not cut it for most computer users (at home) and is frustrating to use to say the least.

JarteThere is one solution for most computer users (at home) and it is called Jarte.  This jewel of a word processor uses the “engine” that drives WordPad, but in a far more capable way.  What I like about it is, it just plain looks nice (has a button interface); it can save and read the same files that Microsoft Word can (even the new MS-Word 2007 file format); has a tabbed interface (meaning you can work on more than one doc at a time); has just the right amount a features most computer users (at home) need; can be installed as a portable application on your flash drive; and, it is FREE!  There are many FREE word processing programs out there (i.e. OpenOffice.org, AbiWord), but what I have found that for most computer users (at home), these programs are way in excess of what they need.
