Storing all the web pages you visit could result in a very large database file. At some time, you'll have to remove some of those files. One way to do this is to use the Housekeeping agent to automatically delete stored web pages. When enabled, this agent runs daily at 1:00 a.m. To enable Housekeeping, follow these steps:
Open a the Personal Web Navigator database.
Choose Actions, Internet Options from the menu.
Click the Size Options tab (see Figure 13.7), and select one of these options:
- Reduce Full Pages to Links If Not Read Within Select this option to have Notes delete the contents of the web page but save the URL so you can still open the page on the Web. Then specify the number of days that the web page should be in the database before deletion.
- Remove Pages from Database If Not Read In Choose this option to have Notes delete the entire web page. Then specify the number of days that the web page should be in the database before deletion.
- Disable Select this option to disable the agent so it won't automatically delete stored web pages.
Figure 13.7. Set your housekeeping options to reduce the size of web pages that haven't been read recently or to delete those pages.
(Optional) If you want to be warned when the database gets to a certain size, select Warn Me When the Database Exceeds and then specify a size in megabytes.
Click Enable Housekeeping.
Click Save and Close.
You must enable scheduled local agents first in order to use the Housekeeping agent.
If you prefer, you can delete web pages manually. Open the Personal Web Navigator and do one of the following:
Select Other, House Cleaning in the Navigation pane to display a list of documents sorted in descending order by document size (these include web pages and files associated with them, such as cookies and stylesheets). Select the documents you want to remove then click Delete on the Action bar. Notes deletes the selected documents.
Select Other, File Archive if you want to delete files based on file name. Notes displays a list of files, sorted alphabetically by file name (although you can click the sorting arrows in the File Size column heading to sort the view by file size). Select the files you want to remove, and then click Delete on the Action bar. Notes deletes the selected files.
In this chapter you learned how to use Notes to browse web pages, how pages are saved, and how to perform housekeeping. You also learned how to forward a web page or its URL in a mail memo. In the next chapter you learn to edit and format documents.
