How to create a shortcut on the desktop

Unlocking their toolbar
Changing fonts on their desktop (I had one guy who, somehow, enlarged fonts by 200% and couldn�t get it changed back)
How to use screensavers
Attaching a file to email
How to get into windows from a black screen (c:\windows\)
Saving a .doc file as a .txt file
Clearing the history in their browser
Changing screen resolution
Installing software�..any software. (they won�t even try)
Saving pictures off the internet (Ah, right click and save as. They still want to talk to tech, �it can�t be that easy�. Oh but it is.)
Finding a file on their own computer (a woman had a picture of her son, somewhere on the hd and needed help finding it)
Someone was getting the error during boot up �non system disk error�. I could NOT get him to eject the disk from the A drive. He wanted to speak to a �trained� professional.
One guy had retail software (free support) but he didn�t want the free support. He wanted to talk to a �real� tech. I guess he figured that the free support consisted of some guy with a blindfold and a dart board.
With all these people, I tried (and failed) to get them to go to our no charge self help page. They would have none of it. Some people really do have more money than brains.
