If you have a subscription to GoToMeeting, you already know you can change the timezone for an individual meeting, but if you’re like me, you’d rather change the time zone for EVERY meeting automatically.
After digging through all the options under Settings, I came up empty and searched the net, but only found instructions to change the zone for individual meetings. The main support page also stated: “…please note that the meeting invitation text will display the date/time in your computer’s timezone, not the one selected in the Schedule window.”
Not true for me. When I copy/pasted the invite into an email, the time zone was PDT and my computer knows I live in EDT.
I knew there had to be a default setting somewhere. Found it in an unexpected place – under my “LogMeIn” personal information. Below are screen shots and instructions to change YOUR GoToMeeting default time zone in three easy steps:
Step 1: Click the drop-down arrow next to your profile photo, then select “My profile.”
Step 2: On the “Personal Info” tab, click the drop-down arrow under “Time zone” and scroll to your zone to select it.
Step 3: Click “SAVE”
All future meetings will be automatically set to your new default time zone.
If you manage a company page on LinkedIn, you may notice when commenting on a post, LinkedIn sometimes defaults to display your company name rather than you as an individual.
On the flip side, there may be times when the default is set to identify you as an individual, but you would prefer to comment on a post as your business page.
Here’s a quick infographic to show you exactly how to post as either yourself or your company.
And here’s some text you might want to copy rather than type out as you follow the instructions:

If for some reason, the infographic doesn’t display, here’s the text-based instructions to untag yourself from a Facebook comment in a web browser:
Step 1. Hover to the right of the comment in which you are tagged to display an ellipsis and then click it, which will display a pop-up menu.
Step 2. Click “Give feedback or report this comment” from the pop-up menu. (older versions may read: “Find Support or Report Comment”)
Step 3. Click “Spam” from the options in the next pop-up menu that is displayed.
Step 4. Click “Next”
Step 5. Click “Remove tag” in the next pop-up menu that is displayed.
(older versions may read: “Untag Yourself From This Comment”)
Step 6. Click “Done”
Step 7. The comment will be hidden, but only from you. If you would like to unhide it, click the ellipsis that appears where the comment used to be.
Step 8. Click “Unhide” when the greyed out comment appears.
When you create an account on LinkedIn, the default website address of your public profile is: https://www.linkedin.com/in/yourname – followed by a string of random numbers.
Not attractive. Or easy to remember.
Here’s how you can delete those numbers:
1. Log into LinkedIn.
2. Click the Drop Down Arrow to the Right or the Word “Me”
3. Click “View profile” on the Drop Down Menu.
4. Click “Edit public profile & URL.
5. Click the Blue Pencil next to your URL.
6. Customize your URL and Click Save.
Sometimes the smallest computer tip escapes me because I’ve known and used it for so long, but today, I helped someone create a Table of Contents for a document and when I turned on Show/Hide paragraph marks, check out what I saw on the page my client had reserved for the TOC:
I didn’t count the hard returns, but suffice it to say this is NOT the best way to get a new page. In this particular situation, as soon as the Table of Contents is generated and fills the page, ALL those hard returns will have to be deleted.
In the broader scope of document editing, anytime someone presses the Enter key multiple times to get to the next page, all those extra hard returns will have to be deleted when the document is edited and pagination changes. When this method of getting to a new page is used multiple times throughout a document, editing can easily turn into a circular game of adding and deleting hard returns every time text is added or removed.
Instead of pressing the Enter key over and over and over and OVER again, try pressing the keyboard shortcut “CTRL+Enter” to insert a page break at the location of your cursor.
With the paragraph marks shown, it looks like this:
I’ll address all the unnecessary spaces and tabs after the word ARTICLES in another post.
Below is an example of a basic 4 level, double spaced, flush left outline:
But suppose you wanted to change your outline format from flush left paragraphs to indented paragraphs? If you are comfortable with WordPerfect Bullets and Numbering, you might click “Outline” in reveal codes or “Modify” in the Property Bar to open the “Create Format” dialog box to display settings for the active outline:
So far, so good. But when you look more closely, you’ll see that the “Edit Style” button is grayed out. Unavailable.
But there’s another way. Actually, TWO other ways. Check it out:

I admit, I like Windows 10, but there are a few settings that tend to annoy me because they exploit the everyday user’s unfamiliarity with Windows 10 in order to push built-in Windows 10 apps on the unsuspecting. One of those settings designates the Windows 10 Mail application as the default mail application – even after Outlook has been installed.
[Just to clarify: When you are reading an email in Outlook and you click “Reply” you get a new email Window in Outlook. That’s not the issue.]
Here’s how this setting can cause you problems: When you click an email link on a web page – or even an email link within the body of an email you may be reading in Outlook, instead of opening the new email window in Outlook, Windows 10 will open a new email window in its own email application.
If you’d like all new email windows to open in Outlook, follow the 3 steps below to change your Windows 10 default mail application to Outlook.
1. In the Windows 10 search bar, type the word “Default” and the window should expand upwards displaying “Default app settings”
2. Left-click “Default app settings” and a window showing your Default Apps should appear with “Email” at the top.
When you begin typing, a menu similar to the one in the image below should pop up above the search bar.
After you click “Default app settings” you should see the following menu displaying the Mail icon under the word “Email”:
If you hover your mouse over the Mail icon, it will be highlighted with a gray bar as in the image below:
When you left-click anywhere on the gray bar, a menu will open similar to the one in the image below. Just click the email application you prefer (in this example, I’ve used “Outlook 2016”) and you’re done!
Hopefully, a Windows 10 update won’t hijack that setting and make you do this again. 🙂
