Windows Xp Tips - Place scraps of information on your desktop

If you frequently add the same information to your files, you can place the information on your desktop by creating a file called a scrap. Document scraps saves you from having to constantly retype information.

For example, you can create a scrap containing your name, address and telephone number, which you can then drag into a document when needed. You can also create a scrap for images, such as your company’s logo or whatever.

When creating a scrap, make sure the window that contains the information does not fill the entire screen. Part of the desktop should be visible so you can drag the information to the desktop.

Scraps are available only for programs that allow you to drag and drop information to other programs. For example, you cannot create scraps using a Notepad document. You can work with a scrap the same way you would work with any file.
