It's that time of year again, where so many parents are having to put on their 'IT' hat and set up devices for the upcoming school year.
If the device that you are setting up for your child is an iPad or iPhone, there is a list of things that you need to consider when setting up these devices.
We have put pen to paper (or fingers to the keyboard) and written up this list for you. Select the button below to view this checklist.
In the past, when you 'downloaded' a PDF when using Safari on the iPad or iPhone, you would have the option to choose what to do with the download - for example, whether to 'Open in Books'.
With recent changes to the iPhone/iPad operating system, the way that downloads work has changed - and you may find your downloads appear to have disappeared into a black hole!

Over the past month or so, I have had multiple discussions with clients seeking advice about devices that they must supply for their child for the 2020 school year.
The BYO policy applicable for many schools allows parents to choose to purchase either a Windows or Apple laptop for their child.
A warning if you are one of these parents. Before you hand over the new laptop to your child, consider that this laptop could open up a world of inappropriate content to your child if not set up correctly.

I am regularly getting emails like the one shown below - and I know that clients who have received such emails find them quite disturbing!
The general theme for such emails is that your email account (or some other account), router and/or computer has been hacked and that you are being watched. You may be accused of performing unsavoury acts that have been captured using the device's camera. And the email may even show a password that is one that you have used in the past (and may still use).
If you are new-ish to Excel, you may have found that printing of your Excel worksheet can be a tad challenging - working out how to ensure that the worksheet is not split across multiple pages and impossible to read.
There is a simple trick to ensuring that your worksheet's width is set to fit one page - and we have recorded a short tutorial on this topic for our iTandCoffee Club members.
Let us know your own Excel question or issue in the comments below - and we will include a 'how to' it in a future article on this blog.

Client Kevin T sent an email with the following question, in relation problems he was having with photos in a strange HEIC format on his Windows computer - photos that had come from his iPhone XR.
The updates certainly are coming thick and fast with iOS 13. Yet another update, iOS 13.2.2 was released in the past week - fixing ongoing issues with phone call drop outs and various other things.
As usual, we had lots of fun and covered a wide range of topics and our November User Group at iTandCoffee, held on 17/11/19.
Here's what we covered:
In iOS 13, there have been quite a few changes to the way that you select, edit, copy and paste text. It can be a little confusing - and frustrating - as gestures that previously did one thing now do another.
If you have ever collaborated on a document, or asked someone to review a document, you will be familiar with the 'revision marks' that can be used to show the changes that have been made or suggested.
For those of you who have not discovered this feature of Microsoft Word, you can turn on something called 'Tracking' to keep track of changes that are made to a document - for example, when you draft a document and then ask others to review and suggest any changes.
But how do you a) turn on this revision tracking and b) turn it off when you don't want to see the revisions or comments any more.
