Happy new year. I hope you had a good break; it was quiet but hopefully you found it restful. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get more organised on your PC, with your filing and so on, you will find this month’s tip and course of interest. (Apologies to the Apple Mac users, they are Windows focussed but I am sure Apple’s operating system gives very similar facilities and the concepts are the same.)

Tip of the month

A quick way to find a recent file

If you know that you recently opened a file and want to quickly find that file again you will be able to locate it in the Recent list on the application’s icon.

  1. Click on the Start button (at the bottom left hand side of the screen).
    The Start Menu will be displayed.
  2. Find the application for the file you wish to open and right click on that icon.
    A list of the recent files opened will be displayed.
  3. Select the file you require and the application will open together with that file.

If you work on this file on a regular basis you can pin the file to the Recent list and it will always be available to open here. When you hover over the file the Pin icon will be displayed, click on this and the file will be permanently pinned to the list. Just click on the Pin again to unpin the file.

Tip – you can also do the same if the application is displayed on the Task Bar.

If you would like more help with using the facilities in Windows that help you find files and applications quickly and easily please refer to my Course of the Month below.

Do you think of your audience when using a slide show in a presentation?

If you are booked to give a presentation this year you might like to read my latest blog on the use of a slide show in a presentation. We are often so absorbed with what we want to say that we forget to consider whether our audience can follow what we are saying. This blog gives a few tips to help you.

Microsoft 365 on Tap

Over the last couple of months, I have helped three business owners to set up their email so that they can download and reply to their messages in Outlook on their desktop and mobile. Including one that needed help purchasing their domain and email account set up. This has helped them to feel more organised and to look more professional sending from a business account. If you need help in this area or know anyone in a similar position please let them know about my Microsoft 365 on Tap service, with more information available via the button below.
