Tips & Tricks

1)      To avoid practical office jokes, it is a good idea to lock your computer when you’re stepping away from your desk. The easiest way to do this, is to press the Windows key and L at the same time.

2)      In Windows 7 and 8 there is a little app called Sticky Notes that allows you to make little digital notes on your desktop and input data, change colours, etc. It’s extremely useful and is something I tell users about it all the time and they seem to love it! Try it out on your PC by going to the Start menu and typing in the search bar “Sticky Notes”.

5)      The Snipping Tool is an excellent app found in the latest Windows versions. It allows you to take screen shots of a certain area on the screen and then you can easily save it.
