internet files clutter your hard drive with copies of each page
visited. They can build up over time and take up a lot of disk space.
Even more bothersome is that instead of getting new pages each time, IE
often takes the page out the temp internet files. This can be a problem
if you are viewing a website that is updated all the time.
Of course, if you are on a dial up connection, this can be good but if
you're on a fast broadband connection, you can get away with decreasing
the size of your temp internet files to just one meg without any
performance decrease. Here how to do it:
- Launch Internet Explorer.
- Select the Tools from the menu bar.
- Then select Internet Options... from the drop down menu.
- Once the internet options has loaded click on the general tab.
- Under the temporary internet files section click the settings
- A settings window will load. Slide the slider all the way to
the left so the size indicated in the text box on the right is one.
- Click OK
- Click Ok
week for our Mac User Tip we want to help you keep your private e-mail
private. If you use your Mac in an office environment there may be
times when you want to quickly hide the contents of a mail message that
you are viewing in the preview pane.
You can always use command-H, command-Tab, and command-Q, but here is
how you hide it within Mail itself by quickly blanking the preview
Just command-click on the message that’s currently displayed in the
message list. Just like in a Finder list, command-clicking an
already-selected item will deselect that item.
When you deselect the chosen message in Mail, you won’t have a
selection, so the preview area will be blank. You can also hide the
preview panel entirely by double-clicking on the bar that divides the
preview area from the message list.
However, the command-click method makes it easier to return to preview
mode when you’re done being secretive—just click on any message—as the
preview panel is still there.
