Stop the Boop-De-Doop

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: , , — admin @ 12:01 am

It’s something you hear when you connect a thumb drive. It’s something you puzzle about when the noise happens randomly. It’s the boo-doop, which is what I call the default sound that plays in Windows when a new devices is added.

Yet Another Tweak to Word 2016

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

I’m certain that the recent changes and updates I’ve seen in Word are due to my Office 365 subscription. I doubt that regular Word 2016 users have seen any changes, yet I’m going to write about them — and do videos — as new features appear.

It’s been six weeks since I launched my new YouTube channel. I’ve uploaded over 30 videos, most of which are tips on Microsoft Word. I also added an Android tip, just to test the waters.

Wrap Text Around a Picture

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

When you stick a picture into a document, Word chooses the inline with text layout option. That’s fine for simple images and it’s pretty easy to understand and format. When you need to get fancy, and take your document formatting up a notch, you choose another layout option for the image.

Adding a Simple Image Caption

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

One of my most popular YouTube videos explains how to create a fill-in-the-blanks item in Word. The technique demonstrates how to add a blank line to a document, but it really works best only when you’re printing a document.
