How to save photos from the Internet



You can save a photo from the internet. All we need to do is once we found the photo, we just click on the photo, in this case, to open the article. And when we scroll down until we find the photo, we then do a right mouse click on the photo, we click on save image as, and then we direct this to photo. In this case, to wherever you want it on your computer. In this case, it's going to my desktop. It's already got a title, it will be saved as a JPEG and we click on save. So make sure you contact the copyright owner of the photo and get their permission before you reuse the photo.

Right-click into the folder on the right which is the destination we right-click and paste

How to customise your Facebook Page URL

Its sometimes an advantage to change the URL (which means Unique Address) of a Facebook page to include some key words from the business or service you offer. For example you may have a band, and you may want to include the name of the band in the URL to make it easier for you potential audience to find you and enjoy your music. For the purpose of this blog post, I will show you the steps to personalise the URL in this case for a Facebook page where I post "Long Exposure Photographs", a particular type of photography.

Step 1.
Open Facebook. Click to open the Page that your administer.
Step 2. 
Click on Edit Page 
Step 3.
Click on Page Info
Step 4.
Click on Enter A Facebook Web Address
Step 5
Click on Create a web address for this page?
Step 6
Type your chosen URL here. I first tried LongExposurePhotography without spaces.
Step 7
Longexposurephotography has already been taken, so I changed it to longexposurephotographs and that was available. 

Step 8
You will get a warning to let you know this is a locked-in situation and cant be changed back.
Step 9
Finally its done and you will get confirmation of the new name for your Facebook page.

And that's in. You can them email the URL to your fans, or include in in your website for fans or clients to click on. Good luck.

How to use Google Search like a Professional

How to use Google search like a professional user http://www.nigeldobson.com/
This video will give you six tools that will help to increase the accuracy of your searches and reduce your time invested in searching. They are:
1. Phrase Search. Learning to include quotes before and after our search phrase forces Google to return the exact phrase were searching for.
2. Searching a website using Google. We can search any website from Google search using the following format. Irag nytimes.com
3. Terms you want ton exclude (-) We can force Google to exclude terms that are usually associated, should that association cloud our search results. Cats and dogs are generally associated, but if we want information about cats, and want nothing about dogs, we can put a minus sign hard up against the dogs search term, and this will cause/force Google to ignore everything associated with dogs.Cool ha?
4. The OR Operator. If we want a range of information about a subject from 2 distinct periods, we can use the OR separator to define what we want, and when we want it from.
5. Search and Phone Numbers. Google is a great way to get further concerning phone numbers. If you need to know more information about a company, search their phone number and see what comes back.
6. The Wildcard * If we can only partially recall some facts or a quote, we can enter into Google Search as much as we can remember. Where we cant recall information, we can type a wildcard and then commence the search. Google will use their reach to fill in the blanks, or in this case the wildcard. We can use multiple wildcards if necessary.
Thanks for watching. #ndyvcc

Bored with Gmail Appearance?

Sometimes I stare at Gmail for long periods it really does get tedious. Maybe I need to get a life. There is some truth in that.
Alternatively, I can change Gmail themes. Its kind of fun and easy to do. When the weather is a bit overcast, I dip into themes and select a brighter theme. Or I just jazz up the appearance just for the hell of it.
Whatever your motivation, if you'd like to know how to change the appearance of your Gmail, follow the steps in this video I hammered together, and I hope it helps you.

How to use Gmail Labs




Whilst Gmail Labs don't represent mainline tools and certainly aren't necessary for everyday email service, its worth knowing about them. I maybe head over to Labs maybe once a month and scroll through to see if they have been updated. I use several all the time, such as Insert Picture, and the one that gives a larger set of emoticons. This video will show you how to find and engage them.
If you have any questions, you know what to do.

How to Defrag your Hard Drive (and speed up your Computer)

Easily the most common statement I hear as a Trainer is "my computer is getting slower, what should I do?". By far and away the most effective step is to defrag your hard drive. But there's more to it than that. It really should be done weekly (defragging that is), as regular as taking out the garbage once a week. So, watch the video and have a go. You will be surprised at the difference and how much faster your computer will be. Please subscribe to my channel if you'd like more tips like this one.
