You can get an incredible amount of work done with your computer, if you're organized. After all, you can't get much done if you can't find your files, use handy short cuts or multitask.
With today's helpful downloads, you'll be able to do just that - easily organize your files, get multi-tasking, and get your desktop to its most efficient. Read on to find out how to boost your productivity in no time.
With your busy life, you have to stay organized. So, you write yourself notes, to-do lists, and you might even record reminders for yourself.
You scratch off one task at a time, or multiple tasks at a time. Slowly but surely, a day that starts off feeling overwhelming settles into a manageable to-do list for tomorrow.
That is why apps like Evernote and OneNote are so useful. These computer programs help you to stay organized, so you can see in one place all the tasks you need to tackle at work, and the chores you need to get done at home.
So, having two of these tools defeats their purpose. Why have notes scattered over multiple programs when you can keep them in one spot?
If you type in notes at a meeting, it's there. If you take a picture of a neighbor's yard, it's there when you're in your garden. If you record a reminder while you're driving, you can listen to it later.
Not yet ready to make the switch to Windows 10? If you're a "glass-half-full" type of person, there's a fun and useful Toolbox for Windows 8 that'll help you to be more productive, if you like to multitask. With Toolbox, you can have up to six active apps, or tools, open at a time. There are 15 tools you can choose from, including a Web browser, calculator, Facebook, world clock, RSS, calendar, and more. Click here to get it now.
It's the little things that add up. At work, or when you're on the computer at home, those little things include clicking from one window to another window, over and over.
Say you're writing an email about last month's expenses. Normally, you'd have your email open as you're typing. But, you need to see your budget, perhaps on an Excel spreadsheet, so you click over to that, to check the figures.
You end up wasting a lot of time switching from email to Excel, then back to email, then back to Excel. That type of wasted time occurs a lot, no matter which programs you're using.
Just think about the last time you were posting photos to Facebook. You have Facebook open, but you also have your camera roll minimized to your taskbar. You keep clicking from one to the other. But you don't need to waste time with a simple program.
The program is called AquaSnap. This free tool goes beyond Window's built-in multitasking features. You can quickly resize windows, stretch them into different shapes, and rearrange them, depending on what you need to do. (See video below).
