Microsoft Has a Free Snipping Tool to Produce Screen Captures (with video)

I’m often amazed how Microsoft seems to know just what we need, but then fails to let us know about it. In addition to the Screenshot command provided in your Office software, they’ve also provided a free Snipping Tool you can use anywhere.

In this video, I’ll show you how to find the tool on your computer and how to use it. Be sure not to miss the Delay feature!

How to Add a Webpage to Your iPad Home Screen (with video)

“It will cost you $0.00 to share this video on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, etc. It’s also free to give it a thumbs-up on YouTube. Thank you.” – Peggy Duncan

My how-to video shows you how easy it is to add a link to a Webpage to the Home Screen of your iPad (or iPhone). For example, I’ve added links to the following:

  • All of my Websites so I don’t have to go to Safari first to get to them. They’re together inside a group.
  • A YouTube playlist I’d created on hula hooping (I’m learning how and love it).
  • My local library Website.

NOTE: In the video instructions, if you don’t see “Add to Home Screen” right away, tap the and/or look for “Open in Browser” and continue with the instructions. I had to do this when adding the icon link to my Pulse page.

This is an easy thing to do, and will save you time going forward.

ORGANIZATION TIP: Where Do You Keep Your Software Activation Codes?

Being able to find something the instant you need it is important!

organize activation codeI have an Outlook contact for each app installed on my laptop. When I received the post-purchase confirmation email, I copy/pasted the codes and other information into the notes area. When I need a code (like recently after installing a new hard drive on my laptop), a quick search in Outlook, copy, paste. Done.

No need to find a document and look for the code. Finding something in Outlook is so much quicker, especially since it’s always open.

This is especially important now since we rarely get the actual software DVDs. Back then, I’d write the code directly on the disk with a sharpie (and still created the Outlook contact).

How do you keep up with your codes? Let us know in a comment.

How to Delete Multiple Messages on the LinkedIn Free Account

Did I miss something? I’ve searched and see no way to do this. School me if I’m wrong.
It’s unbelievable that on the free LinkedIn you STILL cannot easily delete multiple messages. They just pile up, year after year.
 
I found this video on YouTube that shows how to delete multiple messages, but still no way to delete all at once.
And this is the code you’ll need. (When I use this, I first click to show all Unread messages.)
$(‘.delete-action’).each(function() { $(this).click(); $(‘button.yes-btn’).click(); });
 

If you know a better way, please leave in the Comments.

PEACE.
