Creating Document Shortcuts

With some programs, like Word 97, you can create a Shortcut by selecting a block of text, right-clicking the selection, and dragging it to the desktop. When you release the button, Windows opens a menu. Choose the option Create Document Shortcut Here. When you're ready to work with the file again, choose the Shortcut. Windows doesn't only launch the program for you and load the document, it will also return you to the passage you originally selected when you created the Shortcut. It even highlight's the text to make it even easier for you to get straight back to work.

Note: Not all word processors that are available support this feature.
