    I've received some excellent advice on these forums, but I've hit a problem: I'd love to print out that advice but can't. I used to have AOL (with local software in addition to the on-line stuff). With AOL, I could always get a print-out from the organ forum, but now that I have to access the Organ Forum via Internet Explorer, when I try to print, all I get isa printout of the source software that produces the picture---many, many pages!</P>


    I don't want to reinstall AOL if I can help it, but how do I get a print-out of stuff on the Organ Forum?</P>

    did you try "copy and pasting" the posts you wanted to save?...then pasting the copied text to a word document to print off?

      Don,</P>


      If you're trying to print a photo, right-click on it, and then click on Print Picture. If you're just trying to print one post, rather than the entire thread, you can highlight the post you wish to print, then do the following:</P>
      1. <LI>Highlight the text you wish to print.</LI>
        <LI>Go to File&gt;Print on the Menu Bar at the top of your screen. (Alternately, you can hold down the Ctrl key and press P).</LI>
        <LI>In the Page Range section, you would choose Selection. (Alternately, you can hold down the Alt key and press T [that's the underlined letter in the word Selec<U>t</U>ion]).</LI>
        <LI>Then click on Apply. (Alternately, you can hold down the Alt key and press A [that's the underlined letter in the word <U>A</U>pply]).</LI>
        <LI>Then click on OK. (Alternately, you can press the Enter key).</LI>



      The reason I give the alternate keyboard commands is because for some people, the mouse is a nuissance, and personally, I find it much faster to keep my hands on the keyboard instead of reaching over to the mouse all the time.</P>


      One other option you may wish to try:</P>
      1. <LI>Highlight the text you wish to print.</LI>
        <LI>Go to Edit&gt;Copy on the Menu Bar at the top of your screen. (Alternately, you can hold down the Ctrl key and press C to copy).</LI>
        <LI>Now, go to Start on your Taskbar at the bottom of your screen, and open your word processing program (many people use MS Word).</LI>
        <LI>Now go to Edit&gt;Paste on the Menu Bar at the top of your screen. (Alternately, you can hold down the Ctrl key and press V to paste). I remember that the letter V looks like the tip of a glue bottle if you hold it up-side-down. If you press P by mistake you will print.</LI>
        <LI>In some cases where it pastes funny in MS Word, I will go to Edit&gt;Paste Special&gt;Unformatted Text (or Rich Text). This keeps the computer from pasting all the HTML code and making it look weird in MS Word.</LI>



      Hope this helps. If you're using a Macintosh, let me know, and I can give you directions for that as well.</P>

        Great information, and very useful. Thank you both.</P>


        It's a good thing one can use the keyboard keys in place of the mouse. Internet Explorer has hogged the top of the screen, making such things as File unreachable. When you can't access the clipboard to copy and paste using a mouse, it does create a problem.</P>


        Again, thanks!</P>

          By any chance, did you hitF11 by accident? It's a toggle key, so if you hit it again, you should be able to see everything. You can also customize the way you see the toolbars by going to <U>V</U>iew&gt;<U>T</U>oolbars&gt; and then click on the toolbar you want to see. A checkmark means it's active, and no checkmark means the option is not active. You can also <U>C</U>ustomize the toolbars in the <U>V</U>iew&gt;<U>T</U>oolbars&gt; menu vto meet your specific needs.</P>


          Also, Windows Explorer has a "memory" (if you will) for two screen views when you close the browser window at the end of your session. One is full-screen, and the other is the last view you had when you closed the browser window. When you open the browser again, it will automatically go to the size and location of this last view (other than full-screen). To get it to go to full screen with the toolbars intact, you will go to the upper, right-hand corner and click on the box in the center (between the <U>underscore</U> and the X). That will fill the screen for you. </P>


          Please forgive me if I'm explaining this too simply for you. I taught Adult Education computer skills for years, and got used to working with the senior citizens. I do hope this helps anyway.</P>

            Hey Michael,</P>


            Any chance you could help me with this (below)? You may view the entire thread in General Chat if you wish by searching using the term Outlook. Thank you in advance!</P>


            I need help with an inorganic matter.</P>


            I use Microsoft Outlook extensively on the job and my boss and I cannot figure out how to correct a minor problem with my Outlook. Originally, whenever I opened Outlook, both the Standard Toolbar and the Formatting Toolbar would appear automatically. Then one day I was rushing around with the mouse and accidentally "screwed up" the Formatting Toolbar. I reopened it an repositioned it okay; but now when I open Outlook in the morning, while the Standard Toolbar appears okay, the Formatting Toolbar only appears about 30% of the time and I am forced to open it manually the other 70% of the time.</P>


            We have tried all of the normal, intuitive fixes for this, including the one that returns your Outlook setting to default with no luck. While this is a relatively minor inconvenience, it is still annoying and it would be nice to get it fixed. Problem is: We have no idea what I did that day many weeks ago when I was zipping around like a crazy man with the mouse and messed up the Formatting Toolbar in the first place which created the problem.</P>


            I know we have some Organ Forum members who are computer gurus in varying degrees. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!</P>

              I do apologize, but it looks like you've done everything I would have done. The only other option would be to uninstall your Outlook, and then re-install it. However, that's an extreme option, and then you run the risk of losing all your archived e-mail--unless you know how to archive your e-mail, and restore it once re-installed.</P>


              Sorry I couldn't have helped more. I only use Outlook at work as a client. On the network I administer, we specifically block all e-mail (incoming and outgoing) and nearly all Internet traffic for security reasons. We use an Intranet only.</P>
