Requests For Next Class Session:    any suggestions  ??

Reviewed This  week Apr 5th 2007

Q. Anyone interested in possibly helping Dick Marx with Photo scanning for the Shasta Historical society? Her's the site  . Dick will let us know if he would need some help when he starts this volunteer project.  

Q. How do share my years of photos with my family members. Is the best method by year or by subject and what medium  would be best? 

A. Everyone had suggestions for this problem. The one we all agreed upon was to use both CD's and DVD's by year.  DVD's hold more and they could possibly view them on their living room DVD player if it played jpeg's. But since there's isn't any consistency between the family households, do both. Put on CD's for those who want to print their own, or use in their computer. And put on DVD's , 1) more fit on a DVD and 2) they will be on the latest medium so if they forget to move them to a DVD it's done already. Digital Image 2006 Library software is good at achieving images for any category you'd like. Another very good thought from Phil Graham was to create a web page file , a history document if you will.   In this  web based document you could type the detail as to the significance of the pictures, "who", "when", "what".  So aside from the pictures there is some information about the pictures and they can be viewed by any internet browser. You wont' have to worry if they have a word processor to view the contents. Simply open IE , for example, browse your computer, find that html file, open it. So what we are suggesting is to create in Word    ( all versions have this feature ) a web page -  not a document. Choose any of the web - based templates. And you will create an html document, not a .doc document.

Q. How can I add an item to the Send To context menu that I see when I right-click a file?
You may already know about right-clicking an icon and then selecting Send To in order to move or copy a file to your Desktop, a floppy diskette, or other location. However, the choices you see in this Send To context menu are somewhat limited, and you may want to add a custom location to this menu so that you can quickly move or copy files to a destination of your choosing.

To customize the Send To context menu, double-click My Computer and the C: drive (or whichever drive letter represents the drive on which Windows is installed). Double-click Documents And Settings and your username. If you see a folder named SendTo, double-click it. If you donít see the SendTo folder, click the Tools menu and Folder Options. Click the View tab and make sure that the Show Hidden Files And Folders checkbox is selected. Click OK and double-click the SendTo icon, which should now be visible.

To add a folder to the Send To context menu, right-click a blank area of the open SendTo window, click New, and click Shortcut. A dialog box will appear and walk you through the process of selecting the desired folder on your hard drive and creating a shortcut.

After you add a folder shortcut to the SendTo folder, you should be able to quickly move any document to that folder. Just right-click the icon of the file
