Excel can be a little tricky in getting exactly what you want to print. In Excel we usually need certain records and/or columns to print, and it isn’t always separated on different pages. Here is a way to have exactly what you need print. First, highlight the cells you would like to print, and then click on the “Page Layout” Tab. In the middle of the “Page Setup” group you will click Print Area. Lastly, in the small drop down list click “Set Print Area”. Now when you go to print your document the only thing that will print will be the cells that you highlighted. If you ever need to print your whole document or change the area you need printed, just follow these same steps but click “Clear Print Area” instead.

Many times we have these great power point presentations that can easily be used to promote your product and/or business, but are limited to showing these presentations in locations where PowerPoint is available. Here is a tip to show you how to save your presentation as a video, so you can show your presentation anywhere you can play a video. Simply open your presentation and click on the File tab, and then select Save and Send. Lastly, in the left hand column, select Create a Video and then select the specific options that you would like your video to have, click the Create Video button, and you can now save your newly created video.

“I want to give a testimonial to Pamela Bir. I joined her Friday Free For All yesterday and it was just her and I for 50 minutes. She pulled up my website and gave me a professional critique that I have been needing for a long time. She gave me some easy things I could do to make my site work better for my clients and I and she also discovered that I had a Request Information box that was leading to nowhere! She put her info in and sent it and I never got a notification. I realized then that I’d never got a notification in a year!! So who knows how many people wanted to subscribe to my specials and I never responded to them. I am happy to say that I got that all figured out and now I do get the notifications. Thank you so much Pamela for helping me. You are a smart lady who knows her stuff!! 💛”

Here is a quick short cut you can use to add a time and or date stamp into a cell in Excel. For a Date Stamp, first select your cell and then press CTRL+; (Control Key and the Semi Colon key). For the Time Stamp, once again select your cell and then press CTRL+ SHIFT+: (Control Key, Shift Key, and the Colon Key).
I wanted to share this article from my bank with you about protecting your cards and identity.
- Going paperless for accounting is safer!!
- PayPal provides extra protection for online purchases. You’ll need to compare their options with what your credit card offers. The combo of both is probably your best option.
- I had never heard the trick about testing for a skimmer at the gas pump.
While we can use paste specials to remove formatting when copying and pasting information from the internet to a word document, sometimes we just forget. Rather than starting over or spending tedious time reformatting, you can highlight your pasted text and press CTRL+SPACEBAR and it will remove all formatting, hyperlinks and reset to your default font.
Mobile Friendly aka Responsive means that your site will automatically adjust to fit any size monitor including a tablet, a cell phone or a 32” flat screen. The view will require little or no scrolling to see the navigation and content. This is not to say your site will be beautiful on a cell phone screen! Especially if you hold the screen in portrait view instead of landscape view. But the site is useable on a mobile device. Mobile Friendly is enough for the majority of businesses.
There is give-and-take to make a Mobile Friendly site. I will be limited to options with images. I will be limited in formatting text as the site must have a flow to move from 32” to 4”.
But let’s say you are a restaurant, a clothing store, a consumer oriented business, a brick-and-mortar store. Then you possibly need to up your game to a Mobile Ready site. Mobile Ready means the navigation and content have been trimmed down and formatted specifically for mobile devices. If I’m looking for your restaurant to place a to-go-order, I’m not interested in the history of your company. Give me the phone number, the address and quick access for directions. You may even want to trim your menu for the most popular pick up items.
A Mobile Ready site always has a link to take me to the full website. If there is something specific I want, I can find it.
Stop right now. Look at your site on your cell phone. Check the portrait view. Check the landscape view. Take a look at the site on a tablet. Check both portrait and landscape views.
Google reports that 50-60% of searches are now done on mobile devices. That number is only going to grow.
Don’t shortchange yourself by having a site that isn’t mobile friendly.
