IT Training's Tech Tips

return to ittraining home page


IT Training's Tech tips are short and to the point. They provide ways to make your work easier and faster. Each Tech Tips page has four boxes: two focus on particular software applications, either JMU specific or Microsoft related; one box shows Shortcuts and keystrokes meant to save you clicks; and another box gives clues to the courses offered by IT Training in JMAC 4.  At this time there is no way to search for a particular tip, so a brief list of the content is shown for each Tech Tip issue.  The Tech Tips originated in April 2013. Click the Month to go to the Tech Tip page of your choosing.
