Use Jump Lists to quickly locate your regularly-used files

This tip is brilliant for quick access to files you are working on regularly.

  1. Right-click a program icon in the Taskbar or Start Menu.
    – A list of recently opened files displays.
  2. Click the file you wish to open.
  3. Click the grey pin icon next to a recently opened file to “pin” the file into the list regardless of how many other files are opened.

  • NOTE: Pinning Folders in the Windows Explorer jump list is a useful way to create shortcuts to Search topics and Folders you access often.

I demonstrate using Jump Lists in this brief Video Tip.

Type on an iPhone or iPad using Macrons

Macrons are an important part of writing te reo Māori accurately. They indicate vowel length. Vowel length can change meaning.

Last week I showed you how to Type on an iPad using Macrons with a Bluetooth keyboard.

This week we turn our attention to our iPhone and iPad.

To enable a Macron when you’re typing on an iPhone or iPad:

  1. When you’re typing, hold down the key for the character that requires a macron.
    – A small gallery appears, showing different accent examples for that character.
  2. Choose the example with the macron.
    – That character is inserted into your text, with a macron.
  3. Carry on typing.
  4. Repeat this process preceding each character that requires a macron.
