Background Information

MalekTips was originally known as Malek's Win95 Tips Page, a personal website developed in the summer of 1996. Malek's Win95 Tips Page provided tips, hints, and software links solely for the Windows 95 © operating system. The page won numerous awards and praise from the Internet community for its easy-to-find and comprehensive selection of Win95-related information. Through MalekTips, we have expanded this service by providing many types of computer-related tips, including Internet and web development help, as well as help for other Windows © operating systems.
