Cool XP Tip

Saw this tip in Computer Shopper magazine this month. "Ever downloaded a file and not been able to remember what it does, how to use it, or where to find an update? Use the Properties Summary page in Windows Explorer to store relevant URLS and other pertinent information related to the file.

To find a file's Properties Summary page, locate and right-click the file in Windows Explorer, and select Properties. Fill in the blanks under the Summary tab. You can provide a category, keywords, and comments,which you can also use to search for lost files. (This tip only works in XP). The downside: You'll need the discipline to fill out the Summary page every time you download a file.
