IT Security Tip
Do not use the same password for everything. A common password for email, banking or other online accounts will give a thief access to much more information should your password be compromised.

IT Tip
In almost every application, you can type Ctrl-F (F for Find) to find a word or series of characters. Ctrl-F works in Microsoft Word and Excel, all major Web browsers, Notepad and many other applications.

IT Sustainability Tip
Enable your computer to go into "sleep mode" when not in use.

Accessibility Tip
Use headings and subheadings to form an outline of the page. Headings help users with screen readers navigate the page and help non-visual users (including search engines) understand how the page is organized.
