Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.
Q: I can never remember today’s date. And, I can’t remember where to find it on my computer. Help!
A: There are lots of ways:
- Hover over the clock and it tells you the date
- Shift+Alt+D in Word
- Ctrl+; in Excel
- Start typing the date in a Word doc and Word finishes it for you
That’s probably more than you wanted to know about today’s date.
Questions you want answered? Leave a comment here and I’ll answer it within the next thirty days.
