Tech Tips & Tricks

Over the next couple weeks, we will be sharing with you what the EGHS staff presented and learned at our staff-led Institute Day.  This is the first in a series of posts.

One of those sessions was presented by Mark Heintz, where he discussed numerous time-saving tips and tricks related to both the MacBook and iPad.

Here is an overview of Mark's tech tips:

1.  Extended Desktop
Allows you to work on your laptop while displaying something else.


2.  Spacebar on the Mac
          This feature allows you to preview a document in Finder, instead of having to load it.

3.  Gestures
 
  1. Two fingers - right click & Three Fingers - drag an item on the desktop
  2. Four fingers up - see all apps that you have open
  3. Four fingers over - switch through multiple "desktops"


4.  Two Different Types of Mirroring

5.  Screen shots
  1. ⌘ + ⇧ + 3 Capture entire screen + save
  2. ⌘ + ctrl + ⇧ + 3 Capture entire screen + copy to the clipboard
  3. ⌘ + ⇧ + 4 Capture dragged area + save (the one I use the most)
  4. ⌘ + ctrl + ⇧ + 4 Capture dragged area + copy to the clipboard
  5. ⌘ + ⇧ + 4 then Space Capture a window +save
  6. ⌘ + ctrl + ⇧ + 4 then Space Capture a window + copy to the clipboard


6.  Spaces
  1. Different classes-different uses


7.  Online quizzes & what I have learned
  1. Review quizzes are the best-hard-time limit


8.  Google docs & Calendars with Links


9.  Screen Recordings with Quicktime
          Each D214 laptop has Quicktime.  It is a quick way to record your screen, voice, or both!

10.  OneTab
          Save and re-open all tabs from day to day.

11. Apple Tab and Apple Tilda
  1. Command + tab - opens all apps that you have open & Command + q - closes all
