Is there a way to do this with columns on Microsoft Word?

I'm doing a comparison of two conclusions, so I have a document with two columns, one for each. Now, I'm doing it in the form of a list with bullet points, and I want to be able to type one bullet in the first column, and then go to the second column to type up the first one there.

I know that the cursor moves to the second column when you've finished with the first, but is is possible to do what I want to do? Move back and forth between columns?

If it isn't, is there something else I could do, other than opening two separate Word documents side-by-side?

In the first column, insert a column break. That will allow the cursor to move to the second column. You will then be able to move between the two columns and fill them as needed.

Try using Excel for the columns, and then import them to Word.

Or you can play with the column/tab features in Word. I prefer Excel though.


i want to make a youtube slideshow video, not a webcam one, just a slide show that i can add music in and stuff. what's the best and easiest software to use for that?

Windows movie maker is the best option for what you want to do.

You only really need other viedo editing programs if you really want to go into video effects and stuff :)

Windows movie maker is also on your computer already (assuming you have any version of windows)

Windows Movie Maker is best i think so

Computer issues!! Virus? please help?

Computer issues!! Virus? please help?

One day i log on to my laptop and it was acting strange, (running slow)

I checked how many processors were running and there were 100 and it kept going up.. (after 5 min it reached 500)

I downloaded adaware and norton to use in safe mode

What else can i do?

help plz

Go to Start > Run ... > msconfig.

This will tell you what programs to run at startup. Uncheck any suspicious looking program from loading at start up. This should solve your problem of rogue processes. After rebooting you may need to run antivirus/antispywares to clean up your system.

Utorrent help needed?

I downloaded it into Adobe After Effects 7.0 to get a file saying "Adobe_After_Effects_7.0_Pro.3437068.TPB... But now that the download is complete when I try to open the file it says "The torrent you are trying to add is already in the list of torrents. Do you want to load the trackers from it?" and it's ETA is around 2 days... What exactly am I supposed to do?

I also used BitComet to install the After Effects and then downloaded the files into a CD.

yeah, its cuz u hv already added ur torrent in ur list... the eta obviously depends on ur net speed.

Just see if ur torrent is forwarding the port properly or not. this can b checked from the sign that is thr at the bottom of utorrent on the right side of DHT. click it n then click "test if port ...dadada"

also if tht sign is green, u r getting speed that u shd get

before downloading the .torrent file also see tht u hv satisfactory seeds:peer ratio. i mean u shd hv atleast a few seeds to download a thing. no seeds means no one holds the complete file that is being downloaded by. peers are those who are dowloading like u

and a very trivial thing, dnt confuse urselves with .torrent as the software, its just the file tht establishes a connection with seeds n peers

You're supposed to wait until the actual file (the Adobe After Effects file) finishes downloading - in about 2 days. The torrent file is just a link to servers that have links to people you can download it from. (A torrent file is a link to the file you want to download.)

It says that because you didn't click on the program, you clicked on the link to the download in Utorrent. ETA will tell you how long it will be to download. 2 days sounds right for a huge file

Good Luck!

How do I make blank lines on a word document?(urgent)?

I want to make entire lines blank, so people can sign on them. I am making a pledge list for an important cause(Spread the word end the word) and I need to know how to do this soon. Thanks so much sorry this is so rushed.

press enter.

or if you want to make a line for someone to write on press underscore untill it goes to the lenght you want it.

you could also press the underline button at the top of the page and press space bar untill its the right length.

If need to get signature of the 2 people, draw a table with two columns, write the names and titles inside the boxes. Hit the format command & select border and shading from the pulldown menu. Remove the side and bottom borders of table and leave the top border line, which will allow signatories to sign above the line.

press enter to go to new line, then press enter for each blank line you want.

if you want this

then press enter

if you want this


then you use underscores (SHIFT - )

________________________________________... Copy paste or press shift -.

you have to press Shift and the Dash to the right of the zero (0)

enter or underscore

press enter

How do I reinstall Windows Vista while retaining all of my files on a partitioned hard drive?

I want to reinstall my Windows Vista OS and I have a partitioned hard drive. It would be great if someone gave me really meticulous instructions on how to reinstall my Windows Vista and how to use my partitioned hard drive to keep all of my files to ensure I don't have problems again.

It's quite simple. When you're installing Vista it will go through it's whole process of setting up the install and such, then eventually you will come to a window where it asks about the installation. You can choose the Quick installation or a Custom installation, you want to click the Custom installation button. Then that will take you to a screen displaying all of your hard drives and partitions. Simply pick the drive that Vista is installed on (so C:), and don't touch the other ones.

It's as simple as that, the only downside is that you may have to re-link all of your programs afterwards. For instance when you go to open programs or files their paths might not work because they could have changed, and it can be a pain to have to sort through them all. But it's easier than backing everything up.

Just make sure that EVERYTHING you want to keep is on the other drives, including files that are associated with the programs.

before reinstall window ,, first get backup personal data from c/ drive like a document desktop on any ur personal data,, and put disk in drive/ restart pc/ press any key for disk boot/ give install location c/drive first format / and install window . i hope u do this short thx u

When your installing a OS it will only install on the selected Part of the hard drive. If you Select C: it wont touch D: or E: W/E you have . So reinstall and be happy.

How can I stop HP

I'm using an HP laptop with Windows Vista, whenever I insert a DVD the program QuickPlay opens up. I can't find a way to stop it.

Please help!!

I had the same problem. Just hit the start button or the windows button next to the "alt" button on the left and type in "Autoplay". Windows will search for this and when it comes up in the menu under programs, click on it. Then a new window will open where you can change the settings. On my computer is it the 3rd one down. It says "DVD movie". Just click the drop down menu next to it and change it to whatever you want. I change it to "Take no action". I hope this helps.

Microsoft Access problem?

I'm using MS Access 2003. I have a query which contains a field that has a string of words.

My problem is I want search for rows which contain words Biro and Blue. I'm using the formula - Like "Biro" And "Blue" - but there are no results. But there are rows which contain both of the words. What is the problem?

Instead of the word and, use the word OR. Or instead of putting criteria on one row, put biro on one criteria row, blue on the other but match up any other criteria to the two rows.

Is it OK to delete these files?

I looked in my programs files, located in my C: drive, and I saw a whole bunch of files that I uninstalled from my computer like AIM IM and Limewire. Are these files safe to delete?

When you uninstall a program some files will be left behind because the company hopes you will reinstall in the future. This information is, in the case of AIM, your contacts, logs, etc. It is perfectly OK to delete these folders of files. It will increase your free hard drive space and likely speed up your machine. The folders you shouldn't modify are Users and Windows.

Just make sure you are not deleting any files that ends in a .sys. Those files are usually system files that needs to be there . These files can sometime be deleted only if they are not supposed to be there. And before deleting anything make sure you check those files on the web to be sure they are safe to delete.

Why isn

If the Internet belongs to everyone and no one then why do we pay big corporations a bill per month for Internet access? They don't "own" the Internet. Why can't we pay broadband companies a one time connection fee to be hooked up to the Internet and be done with it?

Because some people use more bandwidth than others.

I think that it's fair that someone like me, who would use terabytes of bandwidth a month if possible, should have to pay more than someone like Ted Stevens.

It's also true that the ISPs who provide you with Internet access are paying their backbone providers. The ISPs lease the lines they have control over from the organisations that own them. Those organisations, in turn, paid quite a bit of money to lay down those telephone lines, CATV lines, fibre, etc... It's only reasonable that they receive `rent`, so to speak, for use of those lines.

It's just like if I built a bridge entirely at my own expense. I don't own the land above or below the bridge, but I do own the bridge itself. Therefore, I should be able to charge people who wish to cross the bridge a reasonable fee for use of my property.

well me i have cable and the way i see it, its there fiber optic lines im using and the lines let me access there servers to gain access to other servers. so there providing a service that lets me acces other servers which is how you access different websites from all over the world. im sure internet providers have to pay money out for certain things just dont know exactly what

The internet is free. Its the hooking up charges. Good question. Write to your congress person or representative.

Good question. Nothing in the world is free these days.

it is free

sorry for not helping

Is it illegal to download music videos off the vuze hd network?

im just curious becaue i do download videos off the vuze hd network

No. Content on the Vuze HD network is all legal.

There may be some illegal content from users posted at times, but it is quickly removed. All of the music videos are legal.

Will my computer remember all of its data, if I turn it off at the powerpoint?

I'm getting ready for Earth Hour tonight, and i want to turn my computer off - powerpoint and all. But will it forget everything? all of my photos, documents, everything?

I'm just abit paranoid...

just save your files before shutting down..

Hard drives can hold information without power, so all your files are safe.

Save everything then shut it off however you want

Can I use a SATA Laptop Hard drive as a PERMANENT Main drive in my Desktop?

Can I use a SATA Laptop Hard drive as a PERMANENT Main drive in my Desktop? I already know i can attach my Laptop SATA drive to my desktop and it works, that is easy and i have had no problems. What i am asking is if there is any issues with using it as a permanent main drive for my desktop. The Laptop drive is 160GB and my current drive in my desktop is only 40GB. Is there any Con's, issues that i will run into, problems in the future?

It will work, though i would not do it. Most laptop drive run at 5400 rpm and most 3.5" desktop drives run at 7200rpm. you will very likely experience a performance decrease if it is used as your main drive. you can buy 3.5" sata drives in the 750gb rang for <$100 on newegg.com

Yes you can use it! Just make sure you find a place inside to mount or place it so that isn't going to short out. I have used mousepad with the pastic/vinal top (cheaper ones) and cut it and put it around it just to make sure that it laptop drive's circuit board doesn't end up laying against the metal case! You should be fine though!

You can you a SATA to USB cable and boot off that drive.

why wont you go to best buy and call for geek squad no joke they help me with problems on my Laptop

All you need, is the proper adapters.

Is it okay to let your desktop be open?

Okay I was just wondering if it is okay to unhook the door on my desktop so its open so it can get more airflow. Is this okay? or will it screw it up? Thanks! :D

Yes, that is not a problem unless you let water or dust inside. If overheating is your concern, I'd open and air-spray out all accumulating dust first. That will help lower CPU / GPU temperature and prolong their lives. then, if you wanna keep it open, just make sure that your computer's not near a window (then rain may get blown inside), you clean often, and there's no way for your pets to screw with wires inside.

it is fine

as long as you dont let dust or water get in to it plus if you are living in a humid weather country i would suggest to you to not do that,cuz it can get the system kinda wet and it will cause damage.

and if dust get in it will get the fan dusty and that would cause the CPU of the whole system to get hot,so try and keep it clean if you wanna leave it open

It's OK to a point. You want air flow through the case but no more flowing in than the fan(s) expel. Be aware that since the fans blow out every opening in the case for air to enter becomes a vacuum cleaner.

Ok if you dont have pets or kids that may get into the rig while its running. Should really do something about the airflow thru the case thou. My rigs actually run warmer when the side panels are off.

No nothing should happen unless a mouse goes in there and starts to bite stuff, lol

Am I vulnerable to hackers?

I connect to the internet using an open wireless connection (Linksys) and I really have no idea who owns it. But I have always wondered, can other people that are using this open network get into my computer, or watch what I am doing? Without my permission? Just wondering.

Hello ripeforchange,

Anything is prone to hackers. The FBI has to dynamically change their methods in order to stay ahead of the game. This would mean if someone wants your PC, they can get it.

When you use a wireless network, there is 2 things wrong.

1. Using a network with other people allows your computer more access to be hacked. If they know what they are doing, they can get into your PC. It is easier to hack within a network than it is outside a network.

2. When you sending and receive data, it is sent through the air. Anyone with some capturing software can read this. It is not as easy as it sounds but the more experienced people can do it pretty quickly and can get passwords and chat logs. Even people who think they are safe in their house are not safe for people who can park out in their car and get all this.

So to answer your questions, yes.

You are VERY vulnerable to hackers as if you were in the same network as me i could do that and get onto your computer

im 14 showing how little you need to know to hack a network because once your connected to the network you just have to look at devices connected to the network and there click your computer and instant access to your computer

i suggest you invest in YOUR OWN INTERNET CONNECTION :L

get a good firewall while your at it your computer might be safe then


You are part of "their" network (LAN), and if they have the skills, they can monitor all your network traffic, looking for user IDs and passwords. In fact, some crooks actually do this, set up a wireless link somewhere for "free", and capture all the data so they can get your information. Imagine a large apartment complex - lots of suckers to bait there...

Yes....the owner of the router that you are using can both monitor your usage and actully hack directly into your computer if they want to. The likelyhood of that person knowing how to do this (especially if they are broadcasting an open and unsecure connection) are probably very low.

Are Mac computers as susceptible to viruses as a PC?

Well a PC that is not Mac and running OS X Leopard.

Macs (especially those running 10.4 and 10.5) are definitely more secure and immune to viruses than Windows.

I don%26#039;t know the current numbers, but the most recent figure I have seen is that Windows has almost 200,000 viruses plaguing it and less than 5 take over your Mac.

Also, Mac%26#039;s don%26#039;t get spyware... :D

So... Mac%26#039;s get 0.000025 times the amount of viruses that Windows gets and on a Mac you don%26#039;t have to worry about spyware.

At the lowest common denominator, it%26#039;s all one%26#039;s and zeros...no such thing as an un-hackable system, unless you consider a machine that is and will never be touched by a sentient life form.

That said....

Yes and no. First out, Macs do have a few intrinsic security features that Windows does not. Windows systems operate on a %26quot;beehive%26quot; security philosophy...once you%26#039;re in, you%26#039;re a member...

Macs are based in Unix, which does more to continuously check membership for functions that need administrative access. Because of this, it%26#039;s a little harder to get a virus running wild on a mac than it is a PC...but it is not by any means impossible.

The real reason that PC%26#039;s seem more susceptible is simply because they are more popular. If Apple still had the market share, you%26#039;d hear all about how MS makes more secure systems, regardless of how they are actually designed.

Virus makers today shoot for one thing: money. They want your cash and they get more and more creative about how to get it. They will always, however, go for the low-hanging fruit. By that, I mean, the typical mac user is also someone who has thought a bit about their computer purchase. They didn%26#039;t just run into Best Buy and get the cheapest thing that%26#039;ll run, and leave all the junkware running on it.

So another reason...you%26#039;re more likely to find the less tech-savvy on a PC than on a Mac (which is a shame..macs are much easier for the techno-phobes, I%26#039;ve found).

Most professionals use Linux. Macs aren%26#039;t more professional than PC, I don%26#039;t know why the guy said that, it%26#039;s 100% not true. Mac%26#039;s aren%26#039;t susceptible now, but they probably will be in a short amount of time. Hackers and virus writers aren%26#039;t idiots, and they can see that more and more people are using Macs. I use a PC and as long as you%26#039;re not an idiot, you shouldn%26#039;t get a virus.


well PCs have operating system too,like windows xp or vista,

as you might know vista is really secure,xp isnt as secure as vista.i think mac is a really secure OS plus it is really proffesional

No computer software is perfect. OS X is not an exception. It is most definitely susceptible to viruses.

yes. The thing is since the PC is more widely used, hackers, etc, make viruses for the PC more than the Mac.


Would World of Warcraft run slow on my laptop?

I used an online "can you run it" to see if world of warcraft would run on my computer. It said that everything "passed." But it also said that my video card wasn't that great.

I want to run ito on my a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop. it has a Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family () - video card. Will it run slow?

The game may run, but your frame rate may be very slow (choppy). If you reduce the color resolution, and reduce all the textures and distance to minimum, it may play ok.

I can run WoW on a dell 6000, with only a X200 video, and it's only a 1.7 centrino chip. You need the 1GB main memory at least, don't bother if you have less.

i have HP 90005ae Laptop with Nvidia 7600go 256 ram and 2gigs of ram

Considering new Expacks wow runs pretty slow for my liking. from 20 to 50 fps.

Your video card is much MUCH slower than mine.

You would get around 10-15 fps on all LOW. Trust me.

Even playing on my PC with 8800gts some times gets laggy.

try it at different settings

How do you get yourself a gig?

I'm in a band and our next gig is in June, we end up wasting time in our practices and we have nothing to work for that's coming up soon. How do I get a gig for us?

Check local pubs and clubs which do local bands.. see if they are interested in hosting you.

Go to local bars or pubs, schools events etc.. There are plenty of places.

Audio not working in Firefox?

I'm using Firefox (3.0.7) on Windows Vista Ultimate x64 and I don't hear any audio when it's playing through Firefox. Youtube vids play but I get no sound. Sound works in other programs. Any ideas?

On your Vista taskbar, double click the audio icon (while a youtube video is playing in Firefox). A window should appear with volume sliders for programs including Firefox. Just slide the one for Firefox up to increase the volume, and make sure the mute box isn't checked.

Could somebody recommend a decent image hosting script that is free?

Anyone else haveing problems with IE 8 ?

Hi everyone i just recently downloaded and installed Microsofts IE 8 i like it except for the fact that i cant see what i am typeing on alot of web-pages like Ebay feedback etc.

The space to type in is very small and when i do type something it just looks like small dots and i hate that because you cant see what you typed untill it's posted.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I have tried the compatability settings, full screen etc.

Thanx in advance and 10 points for the best answer.

Hit the page button on Explorer and on "text size" set it to large or larger

To the ignorant baboon above........if you don't know pick another question to share your "knowledge" ,nobody asked for your opinion.

Do you not like Firefox? It's a lot better.


i need help. im really confused by what godaddy means. Do i get a free domain or what exactly is it? i have a current domain, but i'd like to get a new name, and i thought this has to be to good to be true, but i thought i'd give it a try. but is it like example.currentdomain.com or is it a whole new one like newdomain.net (haha)... please help thanks so much!

Hello Yoga,

I have Godaddy myself. The freehosting credit will allow you to put up a very small page. This is designed to be a "work in progress" website while you build the main one. Then you will purchase webhosting and upload your site.

The hosting credit by all means is not very great and will not give you much to do with it. You will still need to buy a hosting package.

Help on computer for you
