File Manager Exercise
Use the Help pull down menu in File Manager to review/learn how to view, create, and modify the file and folder (directory) structure. Under Help select search. A dialog box will appear where you will type in the command that you want to learn. As you input the command the list in the middle box changes to show you what topics are listed in the help file. Find the closes topic and select it. The selection appears in the bottom text box. Double click that listing in the bottom box to see the help instructions.
Look up the following command/words in the File Manager Help menu and practice each until you are confident you can perform that operation.
View (learn how to use the View pull down menu to change file detail and sorting options)
Create (creating a new directory)
Delete (deleting a file or directory)
Renaming (renaming a file or directory)
Copy (copying a file or directory between C and A drives and copying files between directories)
Move (moving a file or directory between C and A drives and moving files between directories)
Search (searching all or selected directories for files by name and wild card selection)
Unit 5 Exercises
Complete the following activities for Unit 5:
- Read text pages MSW2 through MSW53.
- Complete number 12 through 16 of the Computer Laboratory Exercise 1 on page MSW59.
- If you have never used Microsoft Word before then complete the tutorial that is included in the Project 1 text (MSW2-53). This is for your learning benefit; I will not collect this assignment.
- If you have used Word in the past, you may need only to read the material and practice only those commands that are not familiar.
- Check the quick reference that starts on page MSW53 as a review of the commands you have learned.
- Complete Student Assignment 1 through 5 on page MSW55-58. These are for practice and will not be submitted.
- Complete Computer Laboratory Exercise 2 and 3 on pages MSW59-60. These are for practice and will not be submitted.
- Complete Computer Laboratory Assignment 3 on page MSW65. Save the document on the A drive using the file name xyzu5a3 where x is the first letter of our last name, y is the second letter of your last name, and z is the last letter of your last name.
- This document should be sent to the instructor as an attachment to email. The Subject in the header should u5a3. Note: If you do not use this exact subject field then I will not get the document.
- Complete the following assignments using information from EET 101/109 - In engineering you frequently have to produce a Technical Report. These are similar but not identical to the laboratories that you are currently writing for the EET 109 laboratory. Produce a two page report titled Kirchhoff's laws. Use the techniques learned in the previous assignment to create titles, subheadings, and graphic insertion. Note: the graphic should be an AutoCAD schematic of a series circuit and a parallel circuit that can be used as a reference when you are describing the KVL and KIV theorms. The document must include the following: statement of Kirchhoff's laws, a circuit as an example figure, the equations used in the laws, and a description of how the law works.
- This document should be sent to the instructor as an attachment to email. The Subject must be u5circuits. The procedure to get an AutoCAD file into Word is:
- Open AutoCAD and Windows applications on the computers in 208 Force.
- In AutoCAD, draw the schematic for a series circuit and completely label all components with R1, E, and I.
- Perform a zoom, extents. This will reduce the white space around the copied image.
- Select the Copy command. Next you need to select the drawing using a window or by selecting each line.
- In Word go to Insert and select Text Box. Put a text box on the top of the blank page. Click inside the text box to put the flashing cussor in the box. Select Edit and Paste to put the schematic inside the text box.
- Resize as necessary and type in the text information that accompanies the schematic.
- Repeat this procedure for the parallel circuit.
- Save the document on the A drive using the file name xyzu5cir where x is the first letter of our last name, y is the second letter of your last name, and z is the last letter of your last name.
A few important reminders:
- As you are working remember to save your work often (ever five minutes) to the A drive so that if something happens to the computer or program you have not lost all of your previous hard work.
- Save a copy of everything you send me over email on your own floppy disk.
- You can print out a hard copy after you have finished editing and correcting misstakes found by the spell checker.
- I will be looking at what you are saying, and how you are saying it. So keep sentences short and include good grammatical practices.
