Quick Microsoft Keyboard Trick You’ll Love
Hitting the Window Icon key and the left or right arrow will open a new window (to the left or right). Also hitting the Windows Icon key and L will quickly lock your computer for when you walk away.
What’s your favourite Windows key shortcut?
Rotating Children’s Job Chart
Do you think children should help out around the house? I’m a firm believer. However when you have six like we do, asking one child to do something made them feel picked on. Why them and not one of the other five?
So we developed a rotating job chart that worked beautifully. Here’s the link to download a weekly one you can edit. It’s simply marvellous for younger children.
Go here for the sample job chart
Leave it posted on your refrigerator. We rotated the jobs between them as all jobs won’t be equally demanding. A good idea is to allocate a role called ‘extra jobs’. This person will cover the chores of someone who is not home.
By the way – for more tips like this, you might want 101 Quick Tips Surviving The Kids which I co-wrote with Mary Lambie. The Ebook is here
Listing All Outlook Items From A Contact
In our last issue, you would have read the Outlook Drag & Drop Tip. Read it here. Ahh, but I didn’t tell you the added benefit of dragging and dropping emails into your Outlook Contact Icon.
If you go to your View Ribbon in Outlook, Click on People Pane. Select Normal. A thin grey line will appear displaying all the emails, meetings, attachments you have with this contact when you click on it. Notice contact is bold. They have to be in your personal contacts (not the global address book). This is why drag and drop is such a fabulous trick. It instantly makes contacts for you.
Powerfully Persuasive People, Proposals, Presentations
Whether talking to a client; a colleague; interviewing a potential employee creating a presentation, or a blog; or just entertaining around the dinner table – every staff member could benefit greatly by knowing essential secrets for ’persuasive discussions’.
This course, always entertaining and inspiring can be conducted via in-house customised small group training; private webinars; national seminar series and conferences or client award days. Email Debbie now to find out more
Office 365 For Photo Backup
Stupid me. I let my son Aaron take the majority of photos while we were together on vacation last year before his move to London. He was going to share them with me.
What I didn’t count on was my son falling asleep on the subway back to his flat; waking up to find someone took his phone off his lap while asleep. He hadn’t gotten around to backing up his photos or putting them on his laptop.
So. When is the last time you backed up your photos?
An idea might be if you have MS Office 365 at home, you have one terabyte (1,000 Gigs) of online storage in OneDrive. You’ll never use this amount with your files, photos and videos.
Yes, there are free versions of online storage – but the space is very limited. For example Dropbox’s two gigs holds about 600 average sized photos.
- Google Drive- 15 Gig including your Gmail.
- OneDrive 5 Gig
- Dropbox 2 Gig
