This How To is especially designed for county offices that are using a Print Server.
This How To is intended for installing MOST networked and shared printers at University Park.
To check the amount of RAM you have installed in your EN computer, follow these steps.
Your hard drive is where everything is stored to operate and use your computer. The larger your hard drive (just like your closet), the more you can store.
You can solve some computer problems by checking a drive or drives for errors. For example, you can check your computer's primary hard disk to fix some performance issues.
Your EN notebooks and EN desktops may slow down over time due to leftover Temporary (.tmp) files and Temporary Internet files (e.g. "gunk").
Adobe Flash Player is a software product from Adobe Systems that can be used to create and view animations and movies using computer programs such as a web browser.
If you are sending the same message over and over in Outlook, one time-saving tip is to save the message to your My Documents folder as a Message or .MSG file. This file can then be re-used multiple times.
This How To assumes you are using Windows 7 and are on an Enterprise Network computer in the College's AG domain. SharePoint is the collaborative work space for groups in the college. A person must be given permission to login to specific SharePoint sites and be added as a member. Members must have a College of Ag Sciences AG account. (Penn State Access Accounts and Friends of Penn State accounts will not work.)
"Group Policy" is applied to College Enterprise Network (EN) computers at startup. An example of a Group Policy object (GPO) put into place during startup is the security group to which an AG account belongs. This security group will allow you to map a network drive to a server for instance.
Due to the security enhancements with the Windows 7 operating system, users will no longer be able to install software on their own. The user needs to gather their installation media and information, enter their licensing information in SharePoint and contact Support to schedule a time for the software installation.
These steps describe how to configure and use multiple monitors in Windows XP or Windows 7.
Disk Defragmenter consolidates files so that each is saved in contiguous physical space on the hard drive. When your computer crashes or freezes, the drive becomes fragmented. This means the files may be broken up and stored in different locations in your computer. This causes programs and files to run more slowly.
Windows 7 has a built-in program that allows a file or folder to be compressed. This would allow the file or folder to be sent via email or put on a server faster.
