Microsoft’s Solitaire Collection for Android and iOS

November 23, 2016

Microsoft introduced the computer version of Solitaire back in 1990, with the intention “to soothe people intimidated by the operating system,” and at a time where many users were still unfamiliar with graphical user interfaces, it proved useful in familiarizing them with the use of a mouse, such as the drag-and-drop technique required for moving cards” [Source: Wikipedia]…

How To Move Everything From Evernote To OneNote

July 4, 2016

If you read my last post, “I Don’t Like The Looks Of This (Evernote Changes Coming!)”, you may be looking for a way out if you currently use the FREE version of Evernote (AND, maybe the paid version since the price is leaping).

The best alternative option out there to Evernote is Microsoft OneNote, which is a very powerful and FREE cloud based note keeping application that can be used on nearly every smartphone, tablet and computer platform out there (i.e. Windows, Android, Apple and the Web). If you are a Windows 10 user, you will find the OneNote app already installed.

Here is how to move everything from Evernote to Microsoft OneNote:

  1. Make sure you have a Microsoft Account. If you are like me I had a Hotmail account that I have had for many years.  That will work… If you use Windows 10 it is highly likely the login credentials you established to login to Windows 10 is a Microsoft Account. If not sure, go to the Microsoft Account link above and see if you can login.  If not, you will need to establish an account…
  2. Go to “Making the move from Evernote to OneNote” … Microsoft has conveniently made a tool specifically designed to import your Evernote data into Microsoft OneNote. Simply download the importer and run it…
  3. I also recommend that you download the Windows Desktop version of OneNote which gives you the most bang for your FREE buck… Go to “Download OneNote”, look down the page for Windows Desktop.  Download and install… You will be prompted to use your Microsoft Account login when you first run it; AND, allow some time for your notes to populate in the application.

Microsoft Edge Browser To Get Extensions Support — and MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF (#2016-012)

March 21, 2016

Microsoft Edge Browser To Get Extensions Support – If you use Google Chrome or Firefox, then you are familiar with browser extensions that extend the functionality of the browser. Microsoft recently announced that they have shipped the first preview release of Microsoft Edge with extensions support to Windows Insiders. Microsoft Edge is the browser that we see in Windows 10. To us at home, we will not see this just yet. I am also reading in various places where Microsoft is working on a tool that will let developers port Chrome extensions to Microsoft Edge… READ MORE

Crush Malware With Malwarebytes Anti-Malware – I have featured the FREE version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in the past and thought this would be a good time to once again promote this “must have” security software. One thing to point out at the start is that the FREE version of Malwarebytes is only a scanning utility and does not provide real-time protection. You can get the real-time protection by purchasing the commercial version of their software. Don’t let this deter you from downloading the FREE version. I use the FREE version and make a habit to manually download the updates and perform routine scans of my computer.

Launch Your Windows Desktop Like An iPad – How would you like to double click on your Windows desktop and a program (or shortcut) launcher appears that allows you to customize and launch your favorite programs, apps, files, folders or web URLs? If so, you need to take a look at PaperPlane. I have always loved program launchers and this one is no exception. PaperPlane Smart Launch is a free launcher program (shortcut manager) which enables you to launch your desktop like an iPad. If you are familiar with Mac OS Launchpad, you could say that it’s a better Launchpad just for your Windows. It enables you to quickly access your most used apps, open a recent file, visit a website URL, play your favorite game, or open any shortcut etc, in one place.
