Multi-tasking Results in Efficient Writing
Using the power of your computer makes it possible to do two or more things simultaneously, or in closely related incremental steps.
*Caution: Install security software on your computer if you don't already have it, and configure it to the level of protection you want.
- Open your e-mail program and create a new message
- Open your Internet browser program
- Open your word processor program and create a new file document
- Connect to your dialup, cable or satellite network.
Now you are ready to Multi-Task, or in other words, switch between the programs you've opened ~~ while you are connected to the whole wide world!
By clicking the "-" in the box at the left of the red "X" in the top right corner of your screen, you can send that program to the taskbar without closing it. Anytime you want to return to using it, just click its name in the taskbar. Send all running programs to the taskbar anytime and return them to your desktop, as you need them, just by clicking on their name.
Practice this until you are familiar with using Multi-tasking. You'll find it very useful as you compose your stories or articles in your word processor, and then move them to e-mail to send.
TIP: Set up your word processor AND your e-mail programs to automatically spell check, so when you misspell a word, you can right click the word and select the correct spelling from the list displayed by the computer program and make the correction with a tap of your finger!
