SCOUG OS/2 For You - January 1999


 Dear Mr. Know-It-All 

With the new year, Mr. Know-It-All has passed the torch to another master of the obscure. We bid, "Adieu!" to the original Mr. Know-It-All and welcome his replacement, the other Mr. Know-It-All.

As always, Mr. Know-It-All has the answers to even the really tough questions.


Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

I want to print multiple section of an online help document such as the Command Reference. How do I do this?

A. Select the Table of Contents (Options->Contents or Ctrl-C). Hold down the Control key while clicking on each of the topics you wish to print. Then select the Services->Print menu item. The only disadvantage is that each section is printed on its own page.

Another alternative is to open up one of the sections you wish to print. Then use the Services->Append to File menu for each individual section. This will create a file names TEXT.TMP in the directory where VIEW was started (typically the OS/2 directory). The output is missing section headers, but will print more compactly or can be imported into a word processor for additional formatting.  

Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

I would like to use OS/2's lockup feature, but I forgot my password. What now?

A.  It's not too difficult to get yourself out of trouble. Just follow these steps:

  1. Shutdown and reboot your system
  2. When the white bar with OS/2 appears in the upper left corner, press Alt-F1
  3. When the recovery choices menu appears, select C (for Warp 3), or F2 (for Warp 4) to boot to the command line.
  4. After a short delay, a command prompt appears. Change to the \OS2 directory (type CD \OS2) on your boot drive.
  5. Type MAKEINI OS2.INI LOCK.RC. This will cause the password entry from your OS2.INI file to be removed.
  6. Type exit and after a short delay your system will reboot.

Now you can set your password to whatever you like. Just be sure to remember it!

 

Mr. Know-It-All lives in Southern California.
You can send your questions to
Mr. Know-It-All
