Each month a new article will be added to my Web Site. This column
will be slightly more technical. This column will concern itself with new and little heard of
Tips and Tricks of Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. Some tips will also work for Windows 7
When a tip will only work with Windows 7 you will be informed of that fact. The Using Office and Beginners Corner will work with XP and up thru Windows 10.
The tips that will be included in these articles are little known,
but so important to your computer's well-being. Each month there will be a new tip included in
the articles. If you have any problems implementing these tips please feel free to contact me
My name is Carl A. Von Papp. (What the A stands for is a secret.)
I live in Bellevue, Washington, which is just 10 miles from Seattle. I worked in Aerospace for nearly
20 years. While at McDonnell Douglas, I worked on the 3rd stage of the Saturn V and the
Skylab. From there I started my own business, AudioColor, servicing and selling all types of electronic
equipment. I ran my AudioColor for 22 years.
I got interested in computers in 1977. My
first system was the Radio Shack TRS-80. I have been beta testing Microsoft products since that
In 1989 I received an invitation to teach computer sciences at Bellevue College. I've been there
for 25 years and have finally decided to retire at age 83.
My 4th career is now working on my own Web Site. I am self-taught in the HTML5 language
so that I can create my own web pages.
