Windows Calculator & Peanuts!

A couple of hints and tips this week, and I haven’t met anyone who knows this first one.  The built in Calculator in Windows 7 has a huge amount of extra features.  Open the calculator via the accessories folder, or just click start and type Calc in the box, or in Windows 8 click on the search icon and type calculator.  In the calculator, open the View menu for all the options.  Some very cool functions are:

Unit conversion - convert all kinds of units, form Atmospheres to Kilo Pascals to Calories to Kilojoules.

Date calculation - quickly calculate the number of days between any two dates, or add or subtract days to a date

Finance calculators including mortgage and lease payments.

This week we also have a special guest tip based on real life experience.  If you’re eating peanuts, do not sneeze them between the keys on your keyboard -they are very difficult to get out.  Thanks Mark!
