I’ve been publishing Ask Leo! since 2003. In those years I’ve written literally thousands of articles answering questions, expressing opinions, educating about the latest issues in technology, and more.

Even in the fast-paces world of technology some stand a test of time and remain particularly relevant, well received, and occasionally even critical long after their initial publication.

Those articles are The Best of Ask Leo!.

Each week I hand-select, lightly update, and re-publish one of the articles that has proven, for one reason or another, to meet the bar – an article that stands out above the rest.

If you found this article helpful you'll love Confident Computing! My weekly email newsletter is full of articles that help you solve problems, stay safe, and increase your confidence with technology.

Leo Who?

I'm Leo Notenboom and I've been playing with computers since I took a required programming class in 1976. I spent over 18 years as a software engineer at Microsoft, and after "retiring" in 2001 I started Ask Leo! in 2003 as a place to help you find answers and become more confident using this amazing technology at our fingertips.
