If you have Windows XP - go into Microsoft Word and then under file click open - there should be a box on the left side that has the following History, My Documents, Desktop, Favorites. Click on the Favorites and see if they are there. If not check your recycle bin to see if you deleted your history and files of your favorites by mistake - there is probably an easier way but I just did this and found all my favorites. Hope this helps.

Here is another nice tip:

Messed-up Typing

If you are a new Word user, you may have noticed that there are many ways you can mess up your document using Word. This comment isn't meant to be flippant or disparaging. The truth of the matter is that Word provides quite a bit of editing power. Along with that power goes the ability to mess up a document if the powerful tools are not used correctly.

A very simple example may be in order. Let's say you are typing along, and you look at your document. You notice that some text you previously entered is gone, and each character you type seems to also delete a character. What is going on?

If this happens to you, stop for just a moment. Take a look at the status bar at the bottom of the Word document window. If you see the letters OVR in bold type on the status bar, the problem is that you have inadvertently hit the INSERT key as you were typing. When you do, Word enters a special editing mode known as "overtype mode" (that's what the OVR characters stand for). While in overtype mode, everything you type replaces something else in your document. For instance, when you type a letter, it replaces the letter to the right of the insertion point. When overtype mode is not active, your text is inserted where the insertion point is located.

To undo your messed-up document, first turn off overtype mode by pressing the INSERT key again. (The OVR characters on the status bar should no longer be bold.) Then, press CTRL+Z to undo your last edit. You can continue to press CTRL+Z until all the characters you inadvertently overtyped are again within your document. Now you can go ahead and continue typing without overtyping your original text.

The otherwise is one of my favorites. How about a ...sm
small 1-cm incision? Is there a large 1-cm incision? Why is it I only hear a linear longitudinal incision but never a linear horizontal incision. Another one I hear frequently is the surgeon removed "all dead and devitalized tissue". Another one is "I put sutures in both the subcutaneous tissue, as well as the skin". Good grief! Of course I do edit, transcribe dead/devitalized, take out as well as, etc., but some you just have to leave as is.

one of my favorites did this

every time she said CBC she followed it with capital C, capital B, capital C.     She was a PA.

I use all three of these pretty much on a daily basis. If I can't locate on one, one of the others probably will find it. Good luck.
Retrieving Favorites
If you have WinXP, you can do a system restore by going down to the bottom left-hand corner and clicking on Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.  There you can restore your computer to a time before the the folder was lost.  It's very simple and doesn't take very long, maybe 10 minutes or so.
i have a couple favorites
one is a zuchinni spice pie (mix it all in blender and pour into crust) -- the other is a casserole using mushroom soup.  e/m me if you'd like these.
Thanks. I put this in Favorites to try when I catch a
Buy new and copy your favorites.
Just buy a new computer and copy your favorites to it. It's very easy to do. If you cannot copy the file the favorites are in to a disk and transfer them that way, write down the URLs and re-enter them by hand on your new machine.

It is unlikely that anyone will allow you to buy the company machine. That, and their requirement that you not engage in personal entertainment or business with it, is not meant to treat you like a child or to make your life difficult.

This is an effort to comply with computer security requirements mandated by HIPAA. As a part of their business partner agreements, the company has to uphold the same privacy and security standards as the client. That will include restricting access to patient information contained on hard drives, as well as ensuring that information in computers is not affected by malware that can be picked up from visiting unauthorized sites on the net or personal email.

If this bothers you, imagine how much more it will bother you for transcription to cease being outsourced,which looks to be the security solution some large interests are looking at.

LOL, and the good accounts are all taken by favorites (sm)
but they are always looking for experienced MTs for the bad accounts.
A bag of jelly beans is one of my favorites.
Use a large clear bag (if you can't find a clear trash bag, a drycleaning bag will work but does tear easily), cut holes in the bottom of the bag for your feet to go through and fasten the top around your neck.  Fill with a variety of colors of small balloons.  The small ballooons used for water balloons (however just fill them with air) work great.  Take the label from a bag of jelly beans and enlarge it on the copy machine and either trace it onto the front of the costume or could even just adhere the copy to the costume.  Doesn't work well if you have to travel very far in a car or have to sit very much, however!
How do MTSOs pick favorites out of
I work as requested, I complete my work, I never complain about the work they send me, I've even been complimented on my quality. So what makes a favorite?... if ANYONE with this company is getting worse than I am, I'd hate to be them!
Cool! Thanks. I added it to my favorites!
Favorites - Chris and Mandisa!
Least favorite - Taylor. His seizures/tremors are getting old and I agree he needs another makeover!
Chris and Kellie are my favorites!
Lost is definitely one of my favorites this year...nm
Live one of my favorites too!! I was in my glory
when Chris was singing with Ed, the lead singer!! I really hope Chris goes far, what great talent!! He did give credit to them for the Walk The Line song, it just got edited out of his interview the night he sang it.
my Transcription favorites are gone! Is there a way to backup
the favorites in Internet Explorer? I had quite a few folders under my main "transcription folder" for directories and software programs, equipment, and yikes, I can't think of what else! I'm near tears here!! Is there a way to get them back?
I put things like that, web sites, in my Favorites
Because you werent on the Favorites List.
deleting bookmarks/favorites
Since I downloaded Windows SP3 I am unable to delete my bookmarks, just get a message that indicates bookmark error, failure to delete.  Searched Google but no good help.  Any ideas anyone?
In IE, just go to File, then Export to back up your favorites.
To restore, go back to File, then Import.
SM for a really awesome abbreviation website I have in my favorites.

You can look up expansions for abbreviations.  It also lists normal lab values, symbols and numbers definitions for the deciphering the ShortHand that nurses and other clinical personnel use on the chart.  It even has the JCAHO dangerous abbreviations list.  It just has a lot of little neat functions that I've found helpful.  Here it is:


hmmm, I have tons, but I'll list some favorites

pt=patient, hle=hyperlipidemia, hx=history, nd=and, nx=nontoxic, gm=gentleman, wsg=worsening, nt=nontender, fp=followup, fup=followup, otc=OTC, otcc=over-the-counter, gi=GI, gii=gastrointestinal, nvd=No nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.  The list goes on and on!

Those are just a few of many.  I have most brand name meds set up for auto capitalization.  I also have abbreviations for most headings, ie: alg=ALLERGIES:, pexn=PHYSICAL EXAMINATION, soh=SOCIAL HISTORY, laby=LABORATORY:.

I don't know what I would do without my expansions.  I highly recommend them.  Good luck gettin more set up.

yes -- I have a folder in favorites for my account specific references
and have for each that hospital's medical staff websites and frequently more

Most hospitals and MANY clinics and medical practices have their own web sites which helps a lot.

If you know the city and/or speciality, even plain Google searches can be an easier search than some of the "physician profile lists" -- just because half the time they seem to include every doctor in the state.

Also, fwiw, I keep a copy of state theagapecenter.com page (which is usually the first google hit if you ask for say "Indiana Hospitals")bookmarked as well. Very helpful in finding correct spelling of town and county names. it's worth the effort.
Saved this in my Favorites folder, thanks so much for posting, happy holidays!!! NM
My computer crashed and I lost ALL my bookmarks for researching, please share your favorites. Thx.
