Clean up context menus

When you install a new application, your system will often be changed in ways that aren't immediately obvious. Changes to the "right-click" (context) menus are a case in point. If you later uninstall the application, context menu debris may remain. H...

E-mail for free

Free POP3 e-mail? Yes there is such a thing! Free e-mail accounts like Hotmail mean you have to view your e-mail on the Web, POP3 on the other hand, means you can use a program like Outlook to read and compose your mail offline

Put it all on a tape backup drive

"Back up your data" is probably second only to "eat your vegetables" as good advice that's often ignored. But you ignore it at your peril -- hard drives have grown vastly more reliable, but they can still fail

Get organised with Windows 98 toolbars

In case you haven't noticed, Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 4 add tonnes of new toolbars to the screen. Though these toolbars represent potential time savers (or at least click savers), how do you cope with the visual noise they add?

Working with two soundcards

I would like to know whether it is possible to have two soundcards in one computer and set them up so that one is used for playback and one for recording

Clean up scratched CDs

Check mail sans downloads

Don't you hate it when you dial your Internet service provider to skim your e-mail and end up downloading megabytes of junk mail?

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic.
