Q. Joe I just received your email and it is in color. I would like to print it in black rather than using color ink. Is there a quick fix?          

A. Go to File, Print, Preferences, and select Print Color Images in Black and White.   

Q: What is the difference between hibernate and sleep.

A: Sleep stores your computer's state in its memory. Starting up is fast, but if power is lost, the memory is wiped.

Hibernation stores everything on the hard drive and then shuts down the computer. But it isn't susceptible to a power failure.

Q. Joe, I have forgotten how to determine what Version of Internet Explorer I have installed. Can you help?  

 A. Open Internet Explorer: at the top click on Help, then click on About Internet Explorer, and it will show you the version. This works for the version of any program you have.

USB:    Universal Serial Bus
USB 3.0 is 4.8 Gbps (10 times faster.)
USB 2.0 is at 480 Mbps

Q: When I drag and drop files, how do I know what is happening to them? Are they being moved, copied, or is Windows just creating a short cut?

A: 1.  " + " sign in a little white box, the file is being copied.
2. An arrow, Windows is creating a shortcut .
3. Nothing at all, the file is being moved.

MP3 files are compressed Audio Files.
MP4 files are compressed Video Files

Q. What type of anti-virus software do you recommend?

A. I highly recommend Microsoft Security Essentials it provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
I’ve been using since its Debut in January 25, 2010. Several people in my computer class have nothing but nice things to say about it.

Window 8 comes with the anti-virus already installed, it is called Windows Defender, it is Microsoft Security Essentials kissing cousin.

To: 'Joe Isaac'  Subject: Spam

I seem to be getting an enormous amount of spam (unwanted advertising) in recent months.  Is there something I can do?

At the bottom of the email click on UNSUBSCRIBE.

In Windows Live Mail, your program may be similar.  Click File, Options, Safety Options, then click on the Tab, Phishing, and configure then tab Security and configure. If you make it too strict you will  not receive regular emails with attachments.

All the best and thanks for all the messages.

Thanks, I’m  using Outlook 2010, I’ll try it
