I want to print my Gmail contacts, but I cannot find a way to do it. Is there any way I can do that? Thanks, Mr. M.First, make sure you are in the Contacts section of Gmail. If not, click Mail near the top left and choose Contacts from the drop-down menu. Choose the group you wish to print, then click the More button and select Print. You will be given the option of printing all of your contacts or a group. Make your selection and click the Print button.Depending on your browser, the Print Dialog box may open automatically, or you may just see a list of your contacts. If the dialog box does not open, click File in the top menu bar, then Print. Select the printing options you want, including number of copies and any formatting you wish to apply, then click OK or Print to begin printing your Contacts. Why does “m-a-i-l-t-o:” appear in front of certain email addresses?The “m-a-i-l-t-o:” (without the stitching) that you may occasionally see in front of email addresses instructs your computer to automatically open its default email program when the address is clicked. It usually appears in blue font, as a clickable link on Web pages. Toward the top right side of my keyboard are the Prt Scr/Sys Rq, Scroll Lock and Pause/Break. Can you explain what each of these keys does, please?Prt Scr is the Print Screen key. Pressing this key saves a snapshot image of whatever appears on screen at a given time to the Windows Clipboard. To use the captured image, go to your destination location, then right-click and select Paste. Whatever has been captured to the Clipboard will pop onto the screen.While pressing the Prt Scr key appears to do nothing, pressing the “lower case” part of the same key designated as Sys Rq or System Request, actually does nothing. It’s a relic from another era — not unlike Mr. Modem.Scroll Lock and Pause/Break are also relics from another era that you will probably never use. Long before Windows made its debut back in the primordial DOS (Disk Operating System) era, the keys were associated with pausing or scrolling text that appeared on screen.
