O.k.......

(NOTE- i don't really use hotkeys. I get everyware faster with my mouse- so i will do my best. I do better with more advanced questions)

Alt tab: allows you to cycle through The windows with a dorky looking bar.
Alt esc: brings up the next open window
Alt F4: closes the open window
Ctr, Alt "key" : allows you to set hotkeys.

I COULD keep going- but there are too many hotkeys. And since most can be changed- it's a bad question to ask.

lol...yeah he probably did, but no worries cause thats informative to know Smile.

Alright...next question, how can you access the cpu overclocking from the desktop, or if you can't, what ways can you overclock the cpu or graphics card.

Hmmmm....... Since my graphics card is sooooooo old that i can't overclock it Very Happy i will have to say that i would use WINNER TWEAK 2 and enable the overclock section in the graphics card menu Very Happy


To overclock the CPU- i would use Speedfan. Just google it for more info. It also shows you temprature and allows you to change fan speeds.


Then if that does not work- use the BIOS. It's usualy accessed by pressing F1 at startup. Your computer should tell you how to get to it. Then there may (depending on the motherboard and BIOS) be a option in there someware. It changes from maker to maker.

Then there should be 2 options- one CPU multiplyer and FB speed. Change them.


Note: i did NOT use google or any other thing but my brain to figure this out- and i have only overclocked 1 computer and it was a 350 MHZ Very Happy

o....i think i got a nice one, perhaps it'd be interesting to all Smile.

What are, ways...or places...to be able to add or modify themes for the OS. So perhaps i wanted a Mac theme, what are the best ways, without slowing down my computer much...to do this?

Hmmmm............ I have used windowblinds and that program allows you to change anything for the look.

Right now though- i am using the Vista Transformation pack- and it gives me a computer that looks like vista.


But i don't really do the whole skinning thing- since my computer is just fast enough for XP- let alone much else Very Happy

to reply to the above,

I compiled a list of commands a while back and saved it on a word document, so the most looking up I did was through my documents lol

Anything I do with computers, I usually save in some form or another. I actually wrote a program to play blackjack (along with other various programs) using C haha.

i know what thats like lol...and its even worse when the teacher doesn't even know how to teach math to make it understandable, and simply teaches it all over the place, its nice to learn one concept before starting a new one in the same lesson lol
