Maintain your PC
Ever had anyone tell you to keep your PC and its surroundings clean, to maintain your system properly? If you ignored all that, you’re in big trouble now. Most PC problems are the result of incorrect maintenance. If you are one who has ignored all the warnings to get rid of unnecessary desktop shortcuts and icons, you are in trouble my friend. Why? Broken shortcuts, icons and startup items, icons that have not been used in 3 months- all that junk that was just gathering dust on your desktop (you know what I mean), will result in irritating PC problems, leaving you crying for Windows tech support. If your PC uses up space for disk volume errors, error reports and troubleshooting history, it will affect your PC adversely. You can resolve all the above problems using the following simple Windows tech support tips. Always optimize your computer. Perform scans and disk checks regularly and delete all temporary files and browser cookies. And keep your computer updated with Windows Update. Do all this and you can keep Windows tech support away.
Windows XP support for your PC problems
Sometimes your Windows might not be able to find your DVD drive, even if it’s visible in BIOS and using the standard driver. You can do the Windows tech support yourself by just updating and reinstalling the CD/DVD driver from the Device manager in this case. If the problem still persists, you might need to contact a professional Windows tech support provider.
Sometimes you might find that your system folders like Control panel and Recycle bin are not displayed in the Explorer pane. Don’t scream for Windows XP support yet. First, go to Folder options in Tools and check ‘Show all folders’ and all the folders that had done the disappearing act will reappear again. Still feel like screaming for Windows tech support?
Well, Microsoft products may not be perfect, but you know you can always turn to Windows XP support for any help.
How to save your Windows live help to a file
The Windows live help is a collection of address books which is created from our Windows Live contact folders. We can use the Windows live help to search and select names, email addresses and distributionlists when you send an email. The address book is a container of all our contacts. This means that all of our contacts, for e.g; for home, work, social etc. are all part of the address book. By default, the address book has all the contacts in the main contact list.
How to add a person in the Windows live help
In order to add a person to the address book, you need to create a contact for that person in Windows Live. How to do this? By using the contact form or by saving a persons name, email address from an open email message. After the contact is changed, the saved contact will reflect in the address book.
Export your Windows live help in a file
Exporting your Windows live helpto a file makes the migration process a lot easier. Especially when you are migrating the address book info from one platform to another. The personal folder file (PST) and the comma separated values (CSV) format are common file types used in exporting address book files.
Steps to Import/ Export (Save) files in Windows live help
Open “Windows Live” and click the “File” so that you can choose “Import/ Export” from the drop down menu. After that, choose “Export to a file” from the given list and select “Next”. Make sure to choose “Comma separated values”. In case you are planning to import the Windows live help from another version of Live Mail, choose .pst (Personal folder file) instead. After that choose “Contacts” as the destination folder and click “Next”. Click finish once you are done and the migration from the Windows live help to a file will be a smooth transition.
