Scrap files allow you to transfer selected data from on program to the other. Let’s say there is an address that I would like to save for later use in a Word document I’m currently working on. Instead of creating another word document, I can simply hihglight the text (in this case the address) and drag it to my desktop or any other folder where I want to store it. This in turn will automatically create a file on your selected location with the information you selected. It is a nifty feature a lot of Office users are unaware of. To learn to use this feature simply follow the steps below.I must admit that sometimes I can be rather lazy…lazy to the point that I wont go to the start menu to shut off my computer, I rather have a button on my desktop that is always accesible that allows me to turn of my computer the minute I double-click it. Below you will find instructions on how to create such a shortcut on your desktop. You can also view the one pager by clicking on the pic tutorial icon. As always comments/suggestions are always welcome.
1. Select the text which you wish to save and drag it to your desktop.
2. A file named ‘Scrap‘ will be placed on your desktop.
3.When you open the ‘Scrap‘ file, what you initially selected and dragged onto the desktop will appear.
