We at UMass have so many webpages to look at I could spend all day and
still not get through them all. But that's okay! It's a cornucopia
of information at your fingertips. I'd recommend using to the add
favorites/bookmarking a web page for easy access in the future.

CREATING A PRINTER SHORTCUT (Windows)
If you frequently print documents from your desktop, the easiest way
to expedite the process is to create a desktop shortcut to your printer.
This way, whenever you want to print something, you can just drag and drop
the document to the printer icon, without having to open it. To create
a desktop shortcut for your printer, go to Start, Settings, Printers. Right-click
the icon of your default printer and choose Create Shortcut. Windows will
tell you that the shortcut has to go on the desktop (which is where you
want it anyway), so click OK. The next time you have something that you
need to print, just drag it and drop it on your new icon.
