Or just walk out with it under your arm. As long as you look confident that you know what you're doing, it's surprising what you can do before people stop leaving you to get on with it.


It's simple social engineering. Unless people are fairly certain something nefarious is going on, it's easiest to simply not ask any questions of someone who looks like they're simply going about their legitimate business. The people who do look on everyone with mild suspicion on a regular basis and ask questions are regarded as nosy and/or paranoid and ostracized because of it. Isn't primate socialization neat?

Write it out for her on a piece of paper that you then tape to her computer. After that she no longer has an excuse to use you as a crutch and begins to figure it out for herself.

But then he'll have to update the paper list every time she creates a new folder, and that's just a whole new barrel of nematode thingies.


With the added problem that, if standing next to her saying 'Open Dopisy. That's the one between Backup and Excel - they're in alphabetical order' is insufficient instruction then I'm stumped as to what written instructions would help.
