I recently lost my laptop to a virus (be careful clicking on those cute videos) and it was more costly to recover than to purchase a new one. Fortunately, they were able to save my data. I had a bad habit of saving to "favorites" without catergorizing. Then when I wanted an article, I had to search the whole list to find it.

When I set up my new computer, I made folders in "favorites". When I save items I want to review later, I put them immediately in their proper folder such as; crafts, crochet projects, recipes, menus, etc. No need to search the whole list now, just go to the particular folder you want. It is so much easier to use, faster and keeps things where you can find them.

Finding great ideas, patterns and recipes for FREE on the internet is sometimes like a treasure hunt. You want to be able to find it again. Most people will bookmark the page of information in their browser, but often websites disappear or pages change, and the perfect pattern or recipe you found there is no longer available.


Instead of a bookmark, you can save the website to your computer.

Create a folder on your computer to save a copy of that webpage with all the graphics. Go up to the top of your browser, usually under FILE - and click on SAVE. Another option is to print the page to PDF, or copy and paste it into a word file and save it that way.

Happy treasure hunting!

Put an asterisk * in front of any of your Bookmarks categories that you'd like to show at the top of your bookmarks list. Since the categories are listed alphabetically, this is helpful when you have a category that would usually require you to scroll far down your list.

If you are an avid scrapbooker like I am, for example, you can soon tire of scrolling your list of bookmarks to get to scrapbooking. Once you've edited it to *scrapbooking it will appear at the very top of your list.

I have been using Firefox for several years now, and after switching from Explorer, I have had less "junk" show up on my computer. There are occasional instances where you must use Explorer (and normally, you will get a message from the website you are visiting that says Explorer is required), but for daily use, I love Firefox.

I have had Firefox for over a year now. I love it! I love tabbed browsing, autofil, spell check.


You should know though that Firefox is an affiliate program and you can make $1.00 from every person you get to join under your affiliate id.

Firefox is great. I think someone already mentioned how to get it-- go to and download it-- so as far as the other part of your quesiton goes, the only change that will occur is that you will have another option for web browsing in addition to internet explorer. An icon for firefox will show up on your desktop after installation, just like there is probably one for internet explorer. You can still use internet explorer if you decide you don't like mozilla.

The big difference between the two is that hackers haven't figured out how to make bugs that can enter your computer through mozilla yet, so it is more secure. The features I like about mozilla are the tabbed browsing (hold down the ctrl key and the letter T and you'll get a new "tab") and the search bar that is always available for google, amazon, and ebay so you don't have to go to those sites first to do a search.
