35 Things Every PC User Should Know (or so says PC World mag)

WINDOWS XP MAXIMIZED

Ran across this article earlier in the day, written by Christopher Null for PC World magazine (and, by the way, if you own a PC, and don't most of us, you oughta subscribe to PC World).

The article covers everything from how to improve font legibility on your LCD screen, to surfing anonymously, tweaking your Internet connection, and securing your WiFi connection, and much much more.

For those who are curious about how to capture streaming media (including Windows Media, Real, QuickTime and Flash media, like YouTube and Google Video), Null points you towards Replay A/V and KeepVid.com, although for the latter you'll want to download the latest version of the VLC player.

Otherwise, Null covers moving big files across the Internet (VanRamblings likes Pando, a sort of e-mail insert which allows you to send files up to 1GB), creating keyboard shortcuts, and a bunch of other useful "tools".
