  1. ICT Tip #54 - Out of Office in Webmail

    by , 29th October 2013 at 04:59 PM
    Continued from last time, some more on Out of Office, but as done through Exchange 2007's webmail service: ICT Tip 054 - Using Webmail to set up Out of Office.doc

    It's probably accurate for Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2010 as well, bar a few screenshot changes.
  2. ICT Tip #52 - Compatibility Mode in IE

    by , 8th October 2013 at 11:19 AM
    You may find this one useful to send out if you run Webmail on Exchange 2007 - when people end up with IE10 at home through Windows Updates, it breaks the display of Webmail unless you force compatibility mode. It's only a single click, but as with the engineer who charges £100 for a single tap of a hammer, it's all in knowing where to click.

  3. ICT Tip #49 - To, CC and BCC

    by , 25th September 2013 at 11:03 AM
    A bit of a delayed start to the term - it all goes mad in the first week or so - but time to get back up and running with IT Tips.

    This week is an educational Public Service Announcement, because no-one seems to know that BCC exists: ICT Tip 049 - To, CC and BCC.doc

  4. ICT Tip #48 - Switching Windows with Alt+Tab

    by , 26th June 2013 at 01:42 PM
    Another late post - although I have a good excuse this time, I was busy in the ultrasound room for my wife's 20 week scan yesterday

    Following on from last week's look-at-the-shiny-3D-effect ICT Tip #47 - Switching Windows with Win+Tab, this week we have the much more useful, useable and sensible alternative: ICT Tip 048 - Switching Windows with Alt+Tab.doc

    Best of luck in getting your users to use it

  5. ICT Tip #47 - Switching Windows with Win+Tab

    One of those quick little tips that makes life much easier - albeit I opted to show the shiny version to people first, because some people are forever impressed by a little bit of 3D gimmickry. It's like Alt+Tab but less useful, it's... ICT Tip 047 - Switching Windows with Win+Tab.doc!

    I don't know why I bother trying to build up suspense when I name the tip in the title of every post
  6. ICT Tip #46 - Screenshots in Word

    by , 12th June 2013 at 02:59 PM
    Continuing a theme from last week's Snipping Tool, if you're working in Word 2010 you can directly insert screen captures into a document - something else I had to have pointed out to me (by my wife, in this instance). Short and sweet and oh so useful: ICT Tip 046 - Insert Screenshot in Word.doc

  7. ICT Tip #45 - Snipping Tool

    by , 7th June 2013 at 03:31 PM
    Late again. Sorry!

    This one was new to me when a teacher pointed it out, and is actually fantastically useful - particularly if you're trying to train your users in how to report an issue (good luck, if so).

    ICT Tip 045 - Snipping Tool.doc is an easy way of screencapping areas of a screen. It is actually quicker than Print Screen -> Open Irfanview -> Paste -> Crop -> Copy -> Paste, so may well be useful to you as well as your end users.

    May all ...
  8. ICT Tip #18 - Avoiding Scam Emails

    by , 14th May 2013 at 03:12 PM
    Back in time for an older tip, not that it matters to anyone but me. There's a chunk of school-specific tips from 42-44 so in an attempt to maintain my buffer, I've gone back and pulled out an ever-relevant tip I wrote when we changed email provider and started to suffer an onslaught of spam.

    ICT Tip 018 - Avoiding Scam E-mails.doc

    It's a bit longer at 4 pages, but some people require a comprehensive dismantling of their naÔvety.

  9. ICT Tip #39 - Full Screen in IE

    by , 26th April 2013 at 11:04 AM
    Completely forgot to put this up on Tuesday. Sorry

    We're skipping #38 (which was about our school Twitter feed) and going straight to ICT Tip 039 - Full Screen in IE.doc, aka "The F11 Key"

  10. ICT Tip #37 - Aero Snap

    by , 16th April 2013 at 04:10 PM
    This is the killer feature in Windows 7 as far as I'm concerned. This and the searchable Start Menu.

    It's simple, but I use it dozens of times a day. It's quick. It's effective. It's listed in the title of this blog post, completely undermining any attempted suspense. It is, of course, the wonder of ICT Tip 037 - Aero Snap.doc!

    A lot of people have no idea that this exists, despite it being useful for nearly everyone. Send it out. Tell them. Share the joy of knowledge. Just ...
