For the PC user tip this week, I want to remind you to use sleep and
modes so don't have boot up every time you turn on your computer since
a waste of valuable time.
Keep your favorite programs open: e-mail, word processor, picture
viewer, Web browser, spreadsheet, whatever.
Make sure you save your work and maybe even close your document, but
leave the apps open and keep the machine in Sleep or Hibernate mode.
For the Mac user tip this week, we want to help you extend a useful
Safari feature. The Safari browser stores a limited number of the sites
that you’ve visited. That’s fine if you’re in the habit of creating
bookmarks for virtually every site you visit. However, it is possible
to change the number of sites included in the History list.
All it requires is a little work within the Terminal application.
To change the number of sites remembered in the browser:
1. Quit the Safari browser if open.
2. Launch the Terminal application.
3. Enter '''defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitHistoryItemLimit
9999''' into the utility and press the [return] key. This will set
Safari to remember 9,999 items instead of the default 100.
4. Enter '''defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitHistoryAgeInDaysLimit
30''' and press the [return] key. This sets the browser to remember and
display up to a month of history.
It’s important to remember that the more sites you set Safari to
display in the History, the slower the browser reacts. So make sure you
carefully consider the number of items and the number of days you
realistically want to display in the History file and adjust the
commands above accordingly.
