    I don't know about you, but I love having two monitors! Windows 7 comes with some neat accommodations for double-screened users, too! The next time you're looking to move a window from one monitor to the next consider this handy keyboard shortcut!

    Just hold Shift and the Windows Key and press the left or right arrow keys! That will zap the active window from one screen to another fast!

    Is there an easy way to tell if I have Administrator rights or not?

    Have you everrun into a situation where you had to sign in to your computerunder the Administrator account? I mean, sometimes certain softwareprograms, etc. require you to have Administrator rights before youcan actually install anything on your PC. (You can read this articlefor more information on Administrator rights, just in case you'renot too sure about the whole thing).

    Okay, let'ssay you just bought a new piece of software and when you go toinstall it, you're asked for your Administrator information. So,you log into your Administrator account, you install the softwareand everything is just peachy keen. But, what happens when you'redone with the whole process? Did you remember to sign out of yourAdministrator account and go back to your normal PC mode? Are youunable to remember if you did it or not?

    If you're notsure either way, there's a very easy way to check. All you have todo is right click on your Start button and checkto see if the first option says Open or Open All Users. If you seeOpen All Users, that means you're still logged inunder the Administrator account. If you just seeOpen, you're signed in under your limited accountand that's the best place to be. This little trick helps when otherpeople are using your computer as well. To make sure they're notchanging your accounts around, do the quick right click and you'llbe in the know again!

    The Mouseless Right-Click

    Over the years I have found that there are many people who would like to use the right-click menus my tips are always referring to but just hate the mouse.

    These right-clicks are great for everyone who's comfortable with the mouse. And many people aren't even remotely interested in trying to remember all the key combinations necessary to replace all the stuff the right-click can do.

    But what about the rest of you? The ones who love to use the keyboard as much as possible, but still want to complete the same tasks the tips are covering.

    Is there a mouseless solution for you?

    Yep! Just as the title suggested, there is.

    Take a look at your keyboard to the right of the space bar and just past the Alt and Windows keys.

    See it?

    Press this menu key and you've replaced the right-click.

    From there, you can use the arrow keys to navigate through the pop up menus and the Enter key to select your choices.

    Just in case, if you've hit this key accidentally or just need to get out of the pop up menu, hit the Esc key.

    Here's a quick note: When I checked my laptop keyboard, I found this key in the top section of the keyboard. You may have to do some searching to find it.

    Viola! Mouseless right clicks at your service!

    Wanna Spell?

    This sitereminds me of those magnetic letters that parents buy for theirchildren and put on the refrigerator so the kids can spendcountless hours arranging and rearranging the letters into words.It would make a great way for kids to practice spelling, that's forsure. But, even as an adult, I really enjoyed this site.

    Start yourtrip by selecting the language of your choice. I chose English. Ina new window, the Wanna Spell spelling board will load for you.Now, you can choose from the letters on the board and startspelling. The other neat thing is that more than one person can beon the spelling board at the same time. The boards are set up likechat rooms in that respect. You can change rooms by going to thedrop down box above the white board area and just select adifferent room.

    To startspelling, click and drag the letter you want to the area of theboard where you want to start spelling your words. How easy isthat?! And, just below the white spelling board, you can see howmany people are dragging (how many people are in the room with you)at the same time!

    Pretty neat,huh?
