TWO SCREEN DILEMMA - SNAP WINDOWS
Windows Key + Left Arrow and Windows Key + Right Arrow will snap windows to the left and right half of the screen respectively.
Online PDF Editor - PDF Candy
Need to only post 1 page of a 4 page PDF document for your students? Don't have fancy PDF editing software? No problem!!
PDF Candy provides absolutely free online and offline tools for working with PDF files (converting, splitting, merging, rotating, etc ).
Tablet Troubleshooting - Won't Boot?
Also, make sure you shut down the tablet when finished working as opposed to putting it to sleep. If it seems like it will not boot, and is adequately charged, hold the power button down for 20 seconds until it starts.
District Voicemail Number
You can call this number to retrieve your messages from your district phone extension. And you can give this number to parents to call you. They will need your extension.
How do you find your extension? It is listed in Outlook or Windows Mail. Click on your name in the email heading.
*Don't have an extension listed? Contact Gary McLeod (mcleodg) or Bo Barrios (barriosb) and they will make sure you are assigned one.
I will place a copy of all campus extensions in our Staff OneNote as well.
Great way to avoid giving out your personal number to parents. When you return phone calls remember to dial *67 before dialing the number and the call will show as "Private," "Anonymous," or some other indicator on the recipient's phone instead of your mobile number.
