Simple Windows XP Tips

There are a lot of handy things that you can do in Windows XP that aren't usually spelled out:

Take a screenshot:
1. Press Prnt Scrn to get the entire screen or press Alt+Prnt Scrn to only capture the active window
2. Open up Paint by going to Start->All Programs->Accessories->Paint and go to Edit->Paste.

To get system information like your hardware rosources, internet setting, and installed components, go to Start->Run->type in "msinfo32"

Get your IP address, go to Start->Run->type in "cmd" to open the DOS command window->type in "ipconfig /all"

See tasks and programs that are currently running, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to open the Taks Manager

Quickly switch between windows: use Alt+Tab to switch to a random window. If you hold Alt+Tab and press Tab, you can select through the different windows to find a specific one.
