Easily resend an Outlook email message

Did you know you can easily resend an Outlook message. This is a great tip I have just discovered.
Instead of forwarding it again and having to re-edit the message etc etc you can simply find the tab Resend Message.
And you may want to customise the ribbon so it’s more prominent as I have done too.

Here’s how to find it in Outlook 2010…
and for 2007 users……..look-2007/

Hope this helps you as much as it’s helped me.
Saves a lot of time!

One simple step to turbo charge Win 7

By default, Windows 7 uses the default Aero theme which includes things like a transparent taskbar and transparent windows and includes Aero peek that lets you see your desktop or program preview when you hover your mouse over any open program. These are all nice, but unnecessary. Having sounds enabled also uses up system resources.

Right click on your desktop, select “Personalize” and scroll down to the “Basic and High Contrast Themes” and select “Windows 7 Basic”.

At the bottom of this window, you should also see and icon called “Sounds”. Click this and in the popup window under the “Sound Scheme” select “No Sounds” and click OK.

There done.
You’ll be surprised how fast your computer now performs!

Do It Again Macro Recorder

Do It Again is a free and simple program that allows you to make your computer automatically perform a task for you, whenever you want.

If there is something that you do on your computer over and over, and you do it exactly the same way every time (such as backing up your pictures, checking web-based email for new messages, etc.), you can tell Do It Again how to perform that task (by doing it once yourself to create the new task). Then you can run that task whenever you want and Do It Again will automatically click the buttons and press the keyboard keys (in exactly the same way as when you created the task), while you sit back and watch the task being performed on the screen.

This is also called macro or automation software, as it allows you to record a macro, then play it back to automate the actions of that macro.

Speed up your Mac

I have used this many times on Mac computers and it will make a huge difference to the speed of your Mac.
I normally switch off all the fancy effects, this alone will make a huge difference similar to adding more ram. Try it but if you are not computer literate best let someone who is look at it.

Secrets is a preference pane that lets you customize many Mac OS X settings that are hidden or incomplete.
