Example text

NOTE Each computer has a certain amount of system memory, also called RAM or main memory. It is dynamic RAM (DRAM), so it loses its contents if it is not constantly being electrically refreshed. System memory forms a workspace that the operating system uses. When you open an application, that application is placed in system memory, and when you open a data file, it is placed there too. When you make changes to a data file, those changes wait in memory until you write them to a more permanent storage area by saving your work.

Wireless routers come with optional security features you can enable that will assign a code (like a password) that is required for a computer to connect to it. The first time that computer connects to the router, a prompt appears for the code; after the first successful connection, the code is stored and the computer can connect to the router automatically. If you do not enable security on your wireless router, you should make sure that you do not have file sharing enabled on any of your computers.
