Security Tip
Beware of unexpected phone calls from off-campus asking for your printer's serial number. Some unscrupulous printer supply companies attempt these calls in an effort to send printer supplies and then bill the university. If you receive such a call, immediately contact the TAC at 831-7500.

IT Tip
Open all your favorite daily-visited web pages in two clicks. First, create a folder in your bookmarks that contains the web pages you visit daily. You can then right-click that folder and click "Open in Tabs" to get all your favorites in the folder opened in a new tab in the current window.

IT Sustainability Tip
The best energy saver is to turn your computer and peripherals like printers/scanners OFF at the end of every day.
