10 things to look for in a flat-panel monitor
Flat-panel monitors offer numerous benefits, and quality (and
prices) continue to improve. But you’ll need to consider severalfactors when you begin to weigh the choices — everything from resolution, latency, and power consumption to display controls and warranties. Here’s a rundown of the key things to keep in mind.

How do I … enable a 360-degree Windows desktop?
The typical computer screen is limited in size. You can get a bigger monitor and increase your resolution, but it’s always the same rectangular box. Sure you can use Linux with its virtual desktops or you can even enable pseudo-virtual desktops in Microsoft Windows Vista (with the help of a third-party application), but anything beyondthat is, by default, not possible.

Create a simple invoice template in Word
When it comes to performing calculations in a Word document, we tend to think of embedding or linking an Excel worksheet — but this can be overkill. Sometimes, a better approach is simply to insert a table in a document and perform the calculations in it. Word tables have a number of  applications: staffing rotas, timetables, pricing charts, quotations, and the one I use most, invoices.

The top 10 Vista sidebar gadgets
I love the Vista sidebar. I know many people think it’s a waste of space, and  Windows 7 does away with it altogether and just lets the gadgets float on your  desktop wherever you want them (something you can already do with individual  gadgets in Vista by detaching them from the sidebar). But whether they’re lined  up neatly down the side of my desktop in a bar or scattered around, I think  gadgets are cool and useful.
