IT Security Tip
When changing your password, don't just change one letter or number. You should always change at least half, if not all of the password to something else.

IT Tip
To get a split screen, pull up a web page and hold the Windows Logo key and hit the right arrow key. Next pull up a MS Word document and hold down the Windows Logo key and hit the left arrow key. It is helpful if you have the windows maximized before using the Logo and arrow keys. You can use two Word documents or two Browser locations.

Accessibility Tip
Did you know that when you send an email that is a JPG with embedded text, the screen readers used by the visually impaired can't read the text? Be sure to include plain text in all your mass emails.
