Got Computer Question?

Ask Randy From Magichost

Q: I don’t know how but I moved my start menu to the side of the screen and have no clue how to move it back. How can I move it back to the bottom? - JensRob74

A: The start menu can be moved to any corner of your screen. Moving it is simple. Click and hold on a blank area of your start menu (between the start button and icons on the right). While holding the mouse button drag the start menu where you want it.

Q: I’m using America Online 4.0 and occasionally my system crashes while using it, when this happens I can’t exit America Online. Is there anyway to exit a program after it stops working? Thanks – Niall

A: Niall, in Windows 95/98/NT you can hold CTRL, ALT, and press DELETE. This will bring up a menu that will allow you to close any program that is currently running. Select the program that is not working and click End Task. You can repeat this a couple of times if the program fails to exit.

**Do you want to design your own web page?

I have included this section for the small group of people looking to learn some basic, advanced features. This week, I will get you on your way to designing your very own web site. Web pages are written in a language called HTML. HTML is a scripting language that can be written in any basic text editor. This language is very simple to learn and is practically the same as English! The best way to learn HTML is to visit a tutorial online and experiment with everything you learn. A great tutorial can be found at http://www.learn-html.com. At the web site click Documentation, then NCSA Beginners Guide To HTML.

Web site of the week: http://-www.inside-aol.com
