Storing hints & tips

  algernonymous 21:09 22 Jun 2007

As I read PCA and other mags I often pick up hints and tips that come in handy. Trouble is, as I am unable to insert any more memory into my brain, I usually end up forgetting some. Do you have any methods for storing such info?

I thank you.

Yes as bookmarks, or if you use IE as Favourites like

Create folders so you know where to look

Thanks for those, although not too keen on VoG™'s suggestion- might run out of skin.
But I don't just mean web pages, e.g. today I read about a program that re-tags music files so I'll use it this weekend then may not use it again for a few months by when I may have forgotten about it or its name.
I recently transferred everything from my old PC to a new one and there were a few programs I'd downloaded but completely forgotten why.

I have a External Hard drive Folder full of them, Most have nanes and in there own Folders. Under a Folder Like "My Files Downloads" I do go back to them now and again. Files as far back as Win95 And Updates for that operating System
