Security Tip
Don't walk away from your computer before locking or securing it. To lock your computer, hold down the "Windows" key and pressing the "L" key.

IT Tip
The font size in the Internet Explorer can be increased or decreased by Clicking View, select Text Size, and choose either Largest larger, Medium, Smaller, Smallest. If you do not see the View menu, right-click on the toolbar and click Menu Bar.

IT Sustainability Tip
Not only is restarting your computer once every day a good practice in general, but it helps sustainability by eliminating the possibility that a hanging process will cause the hard drive to remain spinning when it’s not being used. Needless to say, a spinning hard disk uses more power than one not spinning.
