The URL I gave you in May 2003 (page 73) for guidance in using the Ruler in Word has since evaporated into the Internet ether, and reader George Salley, a retired CPA, suggests this one: http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/.
Also in the May issue, I gave you a tip (page 72) for shutting down programs running in the background that may interfere with a defragmentation. Reader Helen Donnell, CPA, CMA, of Orlando, Florida, suggests a much better way to close down interfering programs: Use the infamous “three-finger salute” (Ctrl+Alt+ Delete). In the “old” days, those key strokes shut down Windows, but in Windows editions since 2000, Ctrl+Alt+ Delete evokes a screen that displays all the programs running in the background (see screenshot) and gives you the option of shutting each of them down.
To end a program, click on its name and then on End Task . When finished defragging, you’ll need to reboot the computer to get rid of the task screen.
