When most people think of searching the web, they think of Google. Google has revolutionized the way we find web pages by using a very complicated (and secretive) set of algorithms to take the words we give it and find what usually turns out to be a very helpful list of web pages.
Colby Apps e-mail’s web interface allows you to utilize some of those same search capabilities.
Colby subscribes to an online service called VTC that provides self-paced training opportunities on a wide variety of software applications. These software titles range from Office applications like Word and Excel, to database programs like FileMaker, to programming languages like HTML, to operating systems like Windows and Mac OS X.
A shortcut is an icon that be “clicked” to open an application or folder without having to “go find it” on your computer. The instructions below are for running an application, but the process is the same for opening a folder or a file.
By default, the Dock sits at the bottom of the Mac display. The Dock was introduced in OS X and contains shortcuts to applications. As you move the cursor along the Dock, the icons will be magnified. You can relocate the Dock to the sides and you can set it to “autohide”. The size of the icons in the dock, and the amount of magnification when an icon is highlighted can also be adjusted.

Gridlines and Borders in Excel are Not the Same
They may look the same visually, but they do not act the same.
Gridlines are used to make cell boundaries visible. You can change their color under Office Button>Excel Options>Advanced. You can set them visible or hidden.
You can also set them to Print.
However – as soon as you change the color or border of a cell – or of any adjoining cell – the gridlines will be lost. So you may end up with a very uneven application of lines and colors within a worksheet.
Borders can have different colors, line types and widths. You can assign different borders to multiple cells in a worksheet. Borders will always print and will not disappear if you change the color of a cell.
To set borders for a single cell or a group of cells:
1. Select the cell or group of cells
2. Click on the Border Icon
This will display the borders dialog box (at left)
3. Select the type of border you want
4. Select the type and color of the line
5. As soon as you click outside the dialog box, the border selection will be applied.
NOTE: If you sort the data, border and background colors of cells WILL NOT transfer with the sorted data.
