1. If you’re on Office 2016 or 2013 you can record your screen using PowerPoint. In your PowerPoint document go to Insert > Screen Recording (far right button on your ribbon). Learn more.

2. A nifty tip if you want less clicks…to quickly grab a screen shot on Windows 10 – hold the Windows key + PrtScr and the screenshot will automatically save to your pictures folder.

3. Did you know you can do basic calculations in OneNote? Yes, you don’t have to bother opening your calculator! For example, in OneNote type 888/10 = press spacebar and you get your answer.

4. In Skype for Business you can specify where on the screen you want your alerts to appear. Click on the Cog icon > Tools > Options > Left hand side: click on Alerts > Where should Alerts appear? Select from the Display and Position options.
