How do I minimize the resolution on my MacBook when I plug it into the projector?
When I plug in my projector everything on my screen gets really big! But everything on the projector looks okay. How do I make the screen on my Mac look normal while I'm projecting stuff?
How do I get my dock on the side instead of the bottom?
Did you notice that my programs are on the left side of my screen instead of at the bottom? Here's how I did that! And a few more things to personalize your Dock...
What are Hot Corners? What can they do? How do I get them setup on my MacBook?!
How do I use sticky notes on the Mac?
I can use sticky notes on a Mac?! Yep. Just like Post-Its!
How can I share QR codes & images on Google Drive?
I have this awesome QR Code in Google Drive, but I can't figure out how to share it with anyone. This goes for my pictures too. I see them. I can open them. I just can't find the shared button!
Share Image on Google Drive
Show smart notebook activity in fullscreen?
I love my SMART Notebook activities, but when I show them on the SMART Board they look funny! How do I fix that?
What is AirServer? How does it work?
AirServer vs. AirPlay.... Whats the difference?! How do they work? What devices can I use it on? We also discussed this topic, though it is difficult to demonstrate through a video. Please email me if you have any questions about it, or add your questions to the Google Doc below.
