DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Elvira=== Dear Webby I need a hot-key to instantly hide what I am doing. I write poetry and sometimes get quite mushy. When my brothers catch me at it, they tease me for weeks and months about it. I heard that there is a boss-key that people use at work to hide their games or email when the boss comes around, but I don't know how to set that up. Thanks Elvira Dear Elvira Open PaintShopPro or any good graphics program. Then open a spreadsheet or something that looks like boring and tedious homework. Maximize that window. Hit PrintScreen Jump to the graphics program and hit CTRL V to paste the screen capture. Save that as boss.jpg to some place where you can easily find it. Right-click onto the desktop choose Properties Desktop browse to that picture and select it. Hit APPLY and OK. >From now on, that picture will be your desktop picture. To temporarily hide anything and everything that is open, hit the Windows key and D. Once the big meanies are gone, hit the Windows key and D again, and everything is instantly restored. Have FUN! Dear Webby
