  • This is good - wish I could forward it to my friends!

  • Can you find Notepad on your computer ? The quick way is to click on Start, look for 'run', click that, type in the box notepad (or may need notepad.exe on older PC's) and press Enter.

    Got it ?

    If you have, leave it open and come back here. Hold down the CTRL key then press A (for All), still holding CTRL press C for (Copy), let go of CTRL

    Got back to Notepad. Hold down CTRL again, press V

    You will need to delete a lot of lines above and below, but you should find the bit you wanted in there. Once you have cleaned it up you can repeat the procedure of CTRL+A, CTRL+C then just CTRL+V into a new email message, or wherever you want to paste it to use it :)

  • On the other hand, if you are confident on using the mouse - click and hold the left mouse button at the start of a bit you want to copy, drag the mouse to the end of the test you want. Let go, then hold down CTRL and press C to copy it (or right click and choose copy - some people lose the highlighted bit until they get used to it)

  • How many have left their values at the front desk dearly love that answered Libby a wry smile for a changing world that permits such items to exist.
