Saving Internet Information Handout

Saving Information found on the Internet and placing it in our personal records – presented May 8, 2013 by Stan Follis.

A really useful tip I forgot to mention during the presentation, but use a lot, is if you accidentally close a browser tab you meant to keep open, the keyboard shortcut – Ctrl + Shift + “T” key will reopen the last tab closed. [June 6, 2013]

    Stan, I found last night’s presentation very informative and helpful. You are an excellent presenter. I’m sorry I had to leave before the conclusion. I had a busy day of mediation and by 8:15 my brain was saturated. Thanks for all your good work for us and for making your notes available on line.
