Dear Sassy: It seems that every time I open my email I get a reminder to change my password. It is good to be reminded, however, it occurs daily counting down from 14 days. Help?! Is there someway to get out of all these reminders?
~ Remind me Less

Dear Remind: Sassy agrees that a good reminder can help get tasks done, however, a bad reminder can hinder productivity and can seem quite annoying. Sassy can change the amount of days that you are reminded to change your password. It will take less than 2 minutes to change. Just let me know and I will be glad to shorten your list of reminders.

Dear Sassy: I have heard other people using a “Print Screen” feature. Can you tell me more about it and how to do it?
~ Capture less on the Monitor

Dear Capture: Fabulous question! There are many joys to using Print Screen. The “Print Screen” feature takes a snapshot of your monitor screen. This is very useful when creating handouts for a class or developing a step-by-step instruction manual. Print Screen is very easy to use and master. First take a good look at your keyboard. Somewhere close to the top right should be a button that says “Print Screen” – it may be one of your function keys. To activate the Print Screen all you do is 1st have the window open that you want copied and 2nd press the Print Screen button. To view your screen capture open up a word document and Paste your capture. You should have a full view of your screen at this time.

But what if you are working in several windows and only want one single window copied? Ahh, Sassy just learned this handy dandy trick last week. Hold down the Alt key while pressing down the Print Screen button. This will only copy the active window.

As always, if you would like a member of the Systems Department to assist you with this or any other problem, please let us know.
