This week I would like to highlight a new, small, but very useful article by Dan Bernhardt [MSFT]1, which explains and links for information on moulding information from the TechNet Library into whatever form you need it to be.

 

Create Your Own Custom TechNet Guide

 

This little article shows how you can string together parts of TechNet library to form your own customised help topics for printing.

 

This is an amazingly powerful tool that I thought needed an extra highlight, as it will come in handy for many reasons.

Add articles or topics to your collection:
  • A -Use the toolbar to add pages to your collection as you visit them.
  • B -Or use right-click on links to add the linked page to the collection.
  • C -Or add all the topics under a link ("Add This Set of Topics") in the table of contents on the left navigational bar.

 

 

Thanks to Dan for the article, cross-linking us back to such a useful feature of the TechNet library is what this eco-system is all about.
