#Microsoft365 – I’ve been spending a lot of time on whitepapers, blogs and researching Digital Literacy. Think everybody you work with is PC Literate? Well you’re WRONG. Teaching people the basic skills (you might have forgotten already) will save you a ton of money and add many hours to the productivity of your company. Not to mention how empowered your users will be. Here’s a couple of tips and tricks – sure to ease your pain.

Everyday – empowerment stuff:

These are things I’ve learnt over the years – and yes – if I wasn’t a trainer as well – I’d forget how much value this adds.

I’ve come across an article stating that “pc literacy training could add 33 minutes of productive time a day“. I’m SURE it’s much more than that – but let’s stick to the actual ‘statistics’ shall we 🙂

  1. Search better boolean operators etc. – see my video below giving an overview
  2. Use your Windows button to search for programs, files and settings on your machine – press the button, start typing – enter to open.
  3. Windows + Left and Right Arrow will split your screens (on current screen)
  4. Windows + Shift + left and right arrow – will move screens to other physical screens
  5. Windows  + D – goes to Desktop
  6. Windows  + E opens File Explorer
  7. Windows + L locks your machine (do not do this if you do not have a password on your machine)
  8. Use the Windows button to search for programs, right click on search result – add to task bar. This will now appear on task bar at bottom of your screen.
  9. To open search results in multiple screens (tabs) keep CTRL in while clicking on link
  10. CTRL + Shift  + T reopens a tab you accidentally closed in the browser.

You’re welcome 🙂

Don’t ever forget how awesome you are – every single person learnt what they know from someone.

Purpose of this blog challenge:

I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
