Right Click

I have often said and I believe that you can find the answers to life’s problems in the Bible.  I believe that it records real events in history and demonstrates God’s involvement in human lives.  It offers hope, forgiveness and reconciliation through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

I have also said that the answers to many problems we face at home and at work can be found on YouTube!  I have repaired home appliances and solved gardening problems using YouTube.  I have repaired electric windows and replaced door handles on my cars using YouTube.  The answers are there if you can find them.

Now, I have discovered another great tool in this age of computers and technology.  It is the “right click”!  Let me explain.

Our daughter had downloaded some photos onto our lap top computer.  She wanted my wife to look through the pictures that our daughter had take of our recent family reunion with her camera.  The plan was for my wife and I to select a few photos and download them onto a flash drive so we could order some prints and enlargements.  That sounds easy, but my wife and I are technologically challenged.  Actually, my wife is better at using our computer than I am.  She does pretty well.

We bought a “Flash Drive” at a local electronics store so we could download a few of these Family Reunion photos on to it.  However, we did not exactly know how to actually do that.  It sounded so simple.  Just insert the flash drive, click on the pictures we wanted and press download on the computer.  It sounded easy, but we had no success.

Someone has said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  We kept doing the same things over and over again, but we had no success downloading the pictures we wanted.  Bummer!

Finally, I asked a friend for help.  He said, “Right Click”.  That was all I needed to do.  Instead of using the left click button on the mouse, I needed to “right click”.

I followed his advice when I got home and it worked!!  Problem solved.  Photos transferred!  I looked like a computer genius!

So, from now on when I have a computer problem, I am going to use “right click”.  I’m sure it will change my life!
