Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

 
 

Apple external drives

Send Article to a Friend

Apple external drives seem to have reappeared, and Apple advertised them in the 18-Oct-93 issue of MacWEEK. Apple is selling three drives - a 160 MB for $369, a 230 MB for $479, and a 500 MB for $799 - and all drives come with Central Point Safe & Sound, Central Point Backup, DiskDoubler, and Apple HD SC Setup. Although these prices are at least in the ballpark, which wasn't true when Apple ceased selling external drives a few years ago, standard prices from mail order vendors like APS range from $80 to $150 cheaper. Is the Apple logo worth that much on a hard drive?
