Security Tip
Passwords are like bubble gum; they are better when used by only one person. Do not allow another person to know your password, and keep your password secure from others. Putting your password on a sticky note under the keyboard is not secure.

IT Tip
If a file or folder in Windows is accidentally deleted, it can be restored by going to the computer's Recycle Bin and selecting the "Restore All Items" option.

IT Sustainability Tip
Turn off your computer at night to conserve electricity. If all the world's 1 billion PCs were powered down for just one night, it would save enough energy to light up New York City's Empire State Building, inside and out, for more than 30 years.
