Creating a PDF file from Word

This is for those old-timers like me who remember when you had to have the expensive version of Adobe to create PDF files (or you'd install free PDF print drivers to get around that). Microsoft has solved that problem, and now you can save a Word document directly to a PDF format.


Monitoring Skype for Business Group Chats with Ego Feed

Monitoring Skype for Business Group Chats with Ego Feed

I'm part of four different Group Chats in Skype for Business that are important to my role and function. But a couple of the chats are high traffic and don't often directly pertain to what I'm doing.

Editing an email to add your own notes

If you're like me, you have a few emails (or a lot) that are in your Inbox as you're working it like a To Do list. You need all the information that's in a particular email, but you also need to add a couple of notes, details, or attachments to keep everything in one place. You can edit an existing email message without sending it to anyone.
