Open Office Quick Reference

Here is a quick reference for things I use in MS Word that I want to use in Writer

Hyperlink - Insert -> Hyperlink - is has no keyboard shortcut and cannot customize it to use Ctrl+K
  Edit -> Hyperlink

Assign hot key to a function. Tools -> Customize -> Keyboard

Format -> Columns - this allows you to set the format of the document to 2 or more columns.

Bootable USB for Win 7 Installation

This is what I did for to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 7 Professional.

- Made note of the previous Win 7 Pro License key
- Downloaded Win 7 Professional ISO here
- Rufus to create a bootable USB with a 4GB USB stick.
- Made sure the USB was a boot-able device in the BIOS
