Welcome to my new Windows Tips area. I will be adding a new Windows Tip each week. The tips that were on my old site can be found in the Archive. These tips SHOULD work on all versions of Windows. I have tested them with Windows 98 and XP. However, I can not take responsibility for any damage that these tips cause. You may not use these tips unless you understand that.

It may take a few days for me to respond, though.
