Thank you

Some time ago, I came on board to take over the WindowsTips newsletter, initially started by my father, Allen. This allowed my father to shift his focus on the long-running WordTips and ExcelTips newsletters. Since that time, I have enjoyed hearing from you, the readers of this weekly newsletter. The time, however, has come for the WindowsTips weekly newsletter to go to an end.
