Computers are more than just televisions that let you buy stamps. Your keyboard is a gateway to a number of convenient commands to create, edit and share your documents. A real computer-head should be able to name all of the following:
- Save: Lets you save your work for future generations of computers to read and laugh at
- Open: Lets you access a previously saved document to add cool new ideas you dreamed up last night
- Undo: Erases your most recent mistake—or confessed forbidden desire—so that no one will ever know you typed it
- Redo: Drags the truth of your secret failings back into the harsh light of the monitor
- Copy: Lets you copy the work of a more experienced writer, usually by inserting multiple paragraph excerpts of more obscure David Foster Wallace essays
- Properties: It’s never too early to start looking at these helpful real estate listings in your area.
- Print: Makes a real-life ink-and-paper copy of your document for you to throw away later
