A Reader Suggests a Shortcut

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

If you have a file or folder that you use fairly often but you do not want to clutter your desktop or your Start menu with shortcut icons, consider this method suggested by Paul McClain, controller at the Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa, Okla.: In Office 2003’s Word or Excel, go to the toolbar and click on File and Open. Then locate the file or folder and highlight it and click on Tools and click on Add to “My Places” (see screenshot below).

 

Then, when you click on Open in the future, the menu will display either the target file or, if you designated a folder, all the files in the folder.
