1. A YouTube Tip You’ll LOVE!!!
You won’t give a paragraph of explanation – just this simple marvellous tip.
To hop around a video you are watching on the YouTube website, press a number key and the video will go to a corresponding percent in the video’s timeline. Hit 5 for 50%; 7 for 70%; 0 will take you back to the beginning.
How cool is this?
2. MS Word Feature Comparison
As you know, you have Microsoft Word for PC, MAC, phones, tablets and web browsers.
The functionality is not the same for all. While researching my new Word Mastery Training, I found a checklist comparing the features between Windows, Mac, Android, IOS and Mobile.
3. Google Desktop Map – A Decade in Reverse
A little-known trick with desktop Google Maps is to view historic street views at various times over the past 10 years.
- Open Google Maps. Type in a location.
- Grab the little yellow person in the lower-right corner and drag / drop it where you’d like it. The map turns to street view.
- Look for the clock icon in the gray box – top-left of the screen.
- Tap and drag the slider back through time to see 360-degree views from previous years
This feature isn’t available 100% for everywhere; however, it’s very widespread with most locations having the full decade of data.
4. Plastic Free July Tip
Little tweaks can add up to a significant change when done by many. So your every contribution counts.
The last issue suggested purchasing bars of soap instead of liquid hand and body soap.
The current tip is to try to buy foods in glass jars instead of plastic containers. Peanut butter. Mayonnaise. Pasta sauces. Sometimes it might cost a touch more – but you’ll have that lovely glass container to use for years to come around your home – pantry, garage, shed.

6. Windows: Open Programs With A Number
You can pin any program icon to the black bar across the bottom of your Windows screen (the taskbar). Example: Chrome, Word, Cut & Snip; Dropbox, PowerPoint. You do this by right clicking the program in the opening menu.
Of course clicking a pinned program will open it. The better trick is to use the keyboard shortcut Windows key + [Number key]. The number key corresponds to the position of the program icon on the Taskbar. if Word is the fourth icon along, you would hit the keys Window + 4. If Dropbox is the ninth, you hit Window + 9.
