So after a bit of a break to let me build up a buffer between work and here again (as not every tip I send out round school is relevant to everyone, so some get skipped), regular service can resume.
Picking up from the last proper tip, ICT Tip #59 - Searching Emails (Outlook 2010) - Blogs - EduGeek.net, this week is ICT Tip 060 - Searching Webmail.doc. This is based on the Webmail service of Exchange 2007, so may not be relevant to everyone, but you might get some mileage out of it.
We already covered tip #57 back in the summer and #58 was only interanlly relevant, so on to #59 we go - ICT Tip 059 - Searching Emails.doc. Based on Outlook 2010, but should be good for 2007 and 2013 as well.
Continuing on closely from last time, we're going into a bit more detail on the Windows 7 search tool - how to search for a file based on the content inside it. Useful when every document you save is in the format Doc1 - new version - really new version - USE THIS ONE - old.docx
You'd think I'd worked in education for five years, watching staff and students alike using just this naming scheme. ICT Tip 032 - Searching by File Content.doc
Steal/reuse/remix/share, but profit
Yes, number 31. Number 30 was a tip specific to our school about using the new headed paper by going to My Templates in Word 2010, because group policy preferences lets you do really cool stuff these days.
Anyway, number 31 is a brief guide on searching folders in Windows 7 using the built in search. No, it's not perfect. No, it's not quick. But it does the job most of the time and it's right there. It'll meet the needs of most people most of the time and, in theory, save you all
