Hi
Does anybody know of any sites that can show some good user tips on
maximising productivity with XP for powerusers.

I am allways finding that the smallest little thing can make me that much
more efficient. Something as simple as learning to send an email using the
shortcut keys can save time for example.

I just thought their might be a website devoted to powerusers and multi
taskers to take advantage of the power of xp.

It's no joke.

Why do you keep posting the same type questions using different names?
Some of us know how to read headers, Jones, Comm, or whatever your name
really is.

Even though you ask for Web sites, I'm going to recommend a terrific
book: WINDOWS XP ANNOYANCES FOR GEEKS from O'Reilly. (The "for
Geeks" indicates it's updated for SP2.) I found it enormously
helpful in making XP work my way and saving me time.

Hey! Sounds excellent, thanks for the tip. But I don't want any kind of
book, I just wanted some basic tips :)

OK, here's a tip. You can't make a purse from a sow's ear. In the same vein,
you can't maximize your efficiency with XP.

Hey! Thats not fair! Its too late for brain teasers! I guess you can't make
a purse from a sow's ear becaue the sows still alive, so are you saying
a maximized XP is a dead one? I don't get that, but I'm sure everybody else
will

Check out Ed Bott's site: www.edbott.com. Ed posts a tip every day, and he
has written several books on XP, most notably Windows XP 2 inside out. But
if you are looking for silver bullets to turn your Yugo into a Ferrari, it
ain't out there. :)

It's "You can't make a SILK purse from a sows ear." You CAN make a
plain one.
