How to Convert Number to Round Up and Display Two Decimal Places (Excel 2010)

There may be times when a number (or result of a calculation) has more than two decimal places. You can tell excel to display only 2 decimal places, but the full number with all the decimal places will be displayed when you click on an individual cell. There is a way to get the worksheet to convert the number to 2 decimal places and round up.

Changing Search Options in Outlook 2010

You can change the search options to customize Outlook 2010’s search feature.  This will eliminate some of the steps when you use “Search”.  In this example we will change the setting so that Outlook 2010 ALWAYS searches “All Folders” every time you execute a search.  The default setting is to search the CURRENT folder only.

Calendar Navigation Outlook 2010

Save Un-sent e-mails to Inbox instead of 'Drafts' (Outlook 2003 & Outlook 2007)

You can change where Outlook saves drafts of your unsent e-mail messages.  By default Outlook will save the messages in the ‘Drafts’ folder.  For me its “out of sight, out of mind”, and I frequently forget I have saved a draft of an e-mail message.  It will help you to remember the unsent message if you save them to your Inbox. 


How to Create and Use 'Quick Parts' for Frequently Used Text in e-mail (Outlook 2013)

You can save blocks of text that you use often when composing e-mail messages. Using "Quick Parts" can help you save time and be more efficient. This process is shown in Outlook 2013, but works the same in Outlook 2016.

How to Boot to Desktop Instead of “Start Screen” (Windows 8.1)

How to Create and Use e-mail Templates in Outlook (Outlook 2013)

If you find that there are e-mail messages that you send out frequently that contain similar text, you can create a reusable template in Outlook. You can then edit and send the template as often as you need to. This process shown in Outlook 2013.

How to Force an App to Close (iPhone/iPad iOS 8)

There may be times when you need to force an application to close. Pressing the Home Button to return to the Home Screen doesn’t actually close the app, it just hides the app from view. If an app is unresponsive or running slow you may want to close it completely. This process shown on iPhone 6 with iOS 8, but works the same on iPad.

How to Delete All e-mail Messages At One Time (iPhone/iPad iOS 8)

There is a small glitch in the software that will allow you to delete all messages in the Inbox on your iPhone/iPad. It is important that you follow all the steps in order. It can be a little more challenging on the iPad. These instructions are shown using iPhone, but are the same on iPad.


How to Determine Memory Usage and Cellular Usage (iPhone/iPad iOS 8)

If you have a lot of applications and save a lot of pictures to your iPhone/iPad, you may have a need to keep an eye on the memory usage. When a major iOS update is available you may need to clear out some photos or apps to make space for the update. If you use Cellular data as well as the Wi-Fi on your iPhone/iPad you may want to monitor the Cellular Usage so that you do not exceed your data plan for your cellular carrier (avoid unnecessary charges). This tutorial will show you how to monitor the Usage. This process is shown on iPhone with iOS 8, but works the same on iPad.

Stop Accidentally Moving Outlook Folders (Windows 7)

It is very easy to accidentally drag and drop items into a new location without realizing it (i.e. an e-mail folder in Outlook). If you turn on the ‘ClickLock’ feature on your mouse it can help eliminate any accidental errors. When ‘ClickLock’ is on, you have to click a second time to drop the item in its new location. ‘ClickLock’ settings are different in Windows XP and Windows 7, see the appropriate documentation and video for your operating system.

Use 'Print Screen' to Capture Dialog Box ONLY

You may use the “Print Screen” function to capture images and insert them in publications, e-mails, presentations, etc.  By adding one key when you capture the image you can restrict the capture to the dialog box only vs. capturing the entire screen.
