A great productivity tip - and one that really helps to keep a busy email Inbox under control - is to create Reminders (or Tasks) from your Mail messages, so that you can quickly and easily follow up on emails that need some sort of action.
In a couple of separate articles, I have covered the topic of how to create Tasks (ie. Reminders) from email messages in Outlook for Mac, and how to ensure you can see these Tasks/Reminders on your mobile device. Here are the links to these articles:
However, many Mac owners use the Mail app on their Mac rather than Microsoft's Outlook app. For these users, the question is whether there is a way of quickly creating a Reminder from an email.
The answer is "Yes there is!".
The Downloads stack normally appears at the right-hand end of the Dock, allow you to view the files that have most recently been downloaded to your Mac.
But what do you do when this Stack disappears? How do you get it back?
Club member Bruce B has asked today if there is a way that you can get back to the top of your Inbox without having to swipe repetitively.
The good news is that there is.
One of the topics discussed at Friday's iPad and iPhone user group related to image sizes, and how to adjust the size of images you send.

When Googling to get answers to your questions, or to search for a variety of online content, you often want to limit the results that you see to be only recent posts - whether that be posts from the last month, year, or some other period.
A perfect example came up today during a client visit. This client who wanted to find an ABC Podcast that was broadcast within the last month. His Google search returned a lot of results that related to past content on the topic, but not the one he was looking for.
How could he ensure that he only saw results from the last month?
And for cases where you only want to see results from local businesses and services, how can you limit the results to show only Australian posts and pages?
I am a big user of the Notes app on the iPad and iPhone. This App has really improved over the last few iOS releases, and I now use it all the time for storing a range of Notes that I need to access regularly. (See this previous article about the great new features of the Notes app.)
Some of these Notes I access EVERY day, so need to be able to find them really quickly. I do this by Pinning the 'frequently used' and 'important' Notes to the top of my long, long list!
Once again, a MyGov scam email is doing the rounds. I received this email over the Easter break, shortly after receiving a real email from MyGov.
It is almost 12 months to the days since I last wrote about a myGov scam in this blog. I'm not sure it that is just a co-incidence, or if these emails are timed for this time of year.
Here is what the real email I received from myGov looked like - very simple and did not ask me to click any link.
Just a few days later, I received the email below. The page associated with the link is shown in the second image below. It looks very authentic, except for the URL - which is certainly not the myGov website! (Note. I would not recommend readers click on the link to see where it goes! Just delete the email.)
I have been asked recently about an email doing the rounds, relating to changes to Dropbox - specifically, whether the email is legitimate and whether the recipient should do anything about it.
The email received contains something like the information shown in the image above.
The change that has been made by Dropbox in March is to limit the number of devices that can use a free Dropbox account to three. Their aim is to get you to upgrade to a paid Dropbox plan to unlock features like unlimited devices and more (which will cost users AU$152.90 per year for 1TB of Dropbox cloud storage).
From May 2019, iTandCoffee will be moving its operations from 34 High Street Glen Iris.
It will be so sad to leave our beautiful iTandCoffee shop in Glen Iris when the lease ends on 30th April. Unfortunately, a rent increase by the new owners of 34 and 36 High St (of over 21%!) has made this move necessary.
One of the great benefits of using Apple devices is their ability to 'talk to' each other.
Our Apple devices include a feature called Continuity.
Continuity allows you to start something on one device and finish it on another - for example, start an email on your iPhone and finish it on your Mac. (We'll cover how this aspect of Continuity works in a future Handy Hint!)
There is a particular Continuity feature that I use every day to save on typing, when signing in to apps and accounts on my Mac that need a two-factor authentication code from an Authenticator app on my iPhone.
