I am honored to present in February – April for the International Association of Administrative Professional’s (IAAP) TEC 15 conferences. These technology conferences cover a wide range of technology and office productivity sessions and span a variety of job titles from Administrative/Executive Assistants to Program Managers/Coordinators, Project Managers and Coordinators, CPAs, Lawyers, you name the job title and these conferences benefit. Here is a list of cities and dates:
I’m teaching Microsoft’s Office Applications including Data Analysis and Functions of Excel, PowerPoint Pizzazz, Take Note! It’s OneNote, and performing my popular technology humor show, “Technology Bytes: And it just bit my funny bone” at lunch.
Like the iPad and iPhone, Mac Desktops and Laptops have a view similar to the Home Screen. The Mac’s version of the Home Screen is through an app called, Launch Pad. You may use the icon on your Dock (displayed at left), Finder, or a multi gestured 5 Finger Pinch on your touch pad or touchscreen.
My Launch Pad view displays below. Notice, like an iPad or iPhone, I have multiple screens that I may swipe or click through.
Windows 8.1 – Tech Tip – The Mini Start Menu – On your Desktop you may right click (or for touchscreen press and hold for a moment) the Start button in the lower left corner to see a shortcut menu. The shortcut menu allows you to perform popular tasks, such as restarting and shutting down, and to navigate to the Control Panel, Task Manager, and File Explorer. This is a simplified version of our former Start menu and displays at left.
So, get off to a great Start early and often using this great menu!
