Setup Different Background Images on Dual Monitors
 
02:22
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to talk about how to have two different pictures on your multiscreen computer. In Windows 8, it was relatively easy, but in Windows 10, it’s not. Let me show you what I’m talking about. Alright, so we’re going to right-click and go to ‘Personalized’ and here we go. We’re going to pick picture and we pick a picture. So I’m going to minimize this. you can see that this is the same picture, just kind of on both screens duplicated for us. Now, the recording software doesn’t let me show both screens real well so I’ve kind of got it split between the two screens here. So this is screen one; this is screen two. Here, under Personalized, you don’t get the option to pick the screen that you like. So what we’re going to do is open up the Run box. You can do that by hitting Cmd+R and we’re going to type in this long command. It’s “control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper” and so we’re going to click OK on that. Then it brings up the original Control Panel personalized personalization desktop screen. From here – let’s close that one – we’re going to right-click on one of these and we’re going to say “I want to set that for monitor 1.” As you can see, now, I’ve got that picture on monitor 1 and we still have this original picture on monitor 2. Then we’re going to right-click on this one and set that for monitor 2 and now I’ve got a pretty bunch of flowers on my desktop. I hit ‘Save Changes.’ It’s set.

Lookup Saved Password in Internet Explorer
 
01:34
Did you forget your username or password for a site? Here is a quick way to figure that out. Welcome to another Braintek video tutorial. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to look up your saved User name and Passwords for websites, using your Control Panel. So we’re going to start by clicking on ‘Start’ here, go to the ‘Control Panel.’ In the search box here, type in “credential.” As you type, it comes up and says here’s the ‘Credential Manager’ and we’re going to click on ‘Manage web credentials.’ From here, it’s going to have all of the various websites and user names that you’ve stored passwords for. You can locate the one that you’re talking about. Click on the little down arrow and it shows you. For that site, here is your user name and your password, but your password is hidden so click on ‘Show.’ It’s going to prompt you for Windows desktop password that way anybody that walks by and wants to see what your password for a specific website is, they need to know this password in order to do that. So we’re going to type in our password and as you do that, it displays what your specific password is for that site and as you can see, mine is “password” for this site. So I have my user name and password now and I’ll be able to figure out how to get back onto this site if I’m using a different internet browser or a different computer.

Setup exchange email on android
 
03:28
Here is a quick tutorial to setup your Exchange Email account on your Android phone. Hello and welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to add your exchange email onto your Android phone. So here, I’ve got a Samsung device. We’re going to go over here to ‘Apps.’ Look for ‘Email’ on the list. And if you don’t have an account, it’ll bring you right up to here. So we can just go ahead and add our Exchange account. Go ahead and type in your email address. Type in your password. Click ‘Next.’ Here, we’re going to choose a type. We’re going to choose ‘Microsoft Exchange.’ It’s going to look for some settings and if it can’t find it, we’re going to have to populate some additional settings here. We’re just going to wait and see how this looks. Security warning. So, the site name doesn’t match. That’s okay. We’re going to click ‘Continue.’ Unable to set up the account. So that means we just need to add some additional settings, so make sure that you have these settings ahead of time. So you’re going to need your Domain – this is going to be the network domain that you would use at your office. You need to know the server address – this would be the outside address. That’s the only two settings we’re going to change here. We’re going to leave everything else. If everything is correct, it should continue. So it says “Remote security.” If your server has this then that’s okay, click ‘Okay.’ Here, it’s going to ask us for some settings on how long we want to sync – so we can do 3 days – push-push is all fine, what it’s going to retrieve, how often it’s going to sync your calendar, do you want it to sync your email contacts, calendar, tasks, sync text messages. So I’m just going to leave all of the defaults here. We’re going to click ‘Next.’ Here it’s says the server is going to have some abilities. You can review that. We’re just going to click ‘Activate.’ Here, we’re going to give it some kind of name so if you’ve got multiple email accounts, you can decide which way you’d like it to be set. We’re going to click ‘Done.’ Here, it brings us to the mail box so we’ll just go ahead and compose a new message. We’re just going to send it to ourselves. We’re going to send it. And there it is. Our test message just came in that we just sent to ourselves. Sent from this Galaxy S5. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

Insert Automatic date to Microsoft Word
 
01:41
Add an automatic changing date to Microsoft Word Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way to add an automatic date into Microsoft Word. So I’ve got a Word document here and what we’re going to do is I’m going to add an automatic date to this Word document in the document’s footer. First, we’re going to get into the footer. We’re just going to double-click down here at the bottom of the page. When we do that, it opens up the footer option. We’re going to come up here to the ‘Insert’ at the top of the bar and in the text grouping, we’re going to pick this icon here that is ‘Insert Date and Time.’ You can see it looks like a little calendar with a clock on it. When we do that, it gives us these options. I’m going to pick this one and I’m going to make sure that this box here, to “update automatically,” is already checked. We’re going to click ‘OK.’ It puts my date down there. I’m going to go back to the ‘Home’ tab and I’m going to move that to the right side of the screen. We’re going to double-click out of this and we’re going to see that my date is there. So we’re going to save this to the desktop. There’s my document. Then we’re going to change the date on my clock here to see if it actually changes. So let’s open this document back up and the date was the 29th and now, it’s set to the 27th. That’s how you can always have the right date on your Word document. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorial.

Disable Clutter in Microsoft Office 365
 
01:51
Hi! Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, we’re going to talk about how to disable the Clutter option that’s included in Office 365. Let’s get started. Let’s open up the browser and go to http://portal.office.com and login to you 365 account. Alright, so we’re going to come over here, to the mail—if it doesn’t already go to mail. Click on the gear to go into settings and we’re going to go to Mail. From here, on the left, we can click on the Clutter and here you can see that I’ve already unchecked it. “When email is received: Separate items identified as clutter” and you can turn that off. Then, it will no longer separate mail that it finds as clutter into the Clutter folder, which I dislike. If you want to find more information about what Clutter is and does, you can click on this link here to learn more about Clutter. That’s it. Now, if you have any mail, if you go back into your mailbox and you have any mail that’s in the Clutter folder, you’ll need to move that out into your inbox, or delete it, or whatever you want to do with those messages. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber today and have a good day.

Microsoft VPN on Win8
 
02:15
Connect to your Office VPN using Microsoft VPN on your Windows 8 machine. Welcome to another Braintek video tutorial. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to use the Microsoft VPN on a Windows 8 machine. As you can see, down here by the clock, I’ve got this little computer. We’re going to right click on that and open of the ‘Network and Sharing Center.’ From here, we’re going to click on ‘Set up a new connection or network.’ As you can see it says “VPN” right here. We’re going to click the third one – ‘Connect to a workplace.’ We’re going to use our internet connection. Here you’re going to type in either the fully qualified domain name or an IP address of the VPN server you’re trying to connect with. In this case, we’re just going to use our testing server: vpn.braintek.com. Here is a descriptive name of it. We’re just going to call it the “Braintek VPN.” Here you can decide if you want to remember your credentials automatically or if you want other people to use these on your computer. We’re just going to leave those defaulted. We’re going to create it. As you can see here, it created the VPN connection, but we need to make some changes to it before we are ready to use it. Here we are going to change the adapter. Here is our Braintek VPN and as you can see, it’s got our connection here. We’re going to right click – ‘Properties.’ That’s our fully qualified domain name – our IP. We’re going to click on the ‘Networking’ tab and unclick TCP/IPv6. Under security for the type of VPN, we’re going to choose “PPTP.” Then we need to allow some additional protocols. We need to allow the CHAP protocol. Click ‘Okay.’ So now it’s all ready to go. Just double-click on that. ‘Connect.’ It’s going to ask you for your user name and password. Here you’re going to type in whatever your user name is so maybe your domain name, your network domain, your user name and then your password. Once you click ‘OK,’ you’ll be able to access resources on the network. Thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorial.

Routes in Google Maps
 
02:52
How to create a route in Google Maps Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way to use routes within Google Maps. As you can see here, I’ve got Google Maps already up on the screen. What we’re going to do is we are going to set up a route going between different destinations. The first thing we are going to do is figure out the first place that you are starting from. So we are going to be starting from the Braintek office. I’m going to put that here on the map. Then what we’re going to do is we’re going to click on ‘Directions’ and we’re going to put in our first destination. Let’s say that I need to run some errands so I need to go to Walmart over here at College Park. So it gives me our first route. Next, we are going to add this little plus sign to add a destination and I need to go pick up some donuts so we’re going to go to Shipley’s Donuts on College Park also. Now you can see here, it starts at Walmart, then it went to Braintek, and then it went to Shipley’s. So this is in the wrong order, but we are going to go ahead and add other things. Next we need to go to Sam’s Club to pick up some bulk water for the office. Lastly we need to stop by the bank to pick up some cash. So as you can see, our route is out of order and it’s going to take us 37 minutes without making any of our actual stops. We’re just driving around to each place. First thing we’re going to do is we are going to drag Braintek to the top. That’s our starting point for the day and that just knocked off some time. So the next thing that’s closest to us, we are going to do Wells Fargo. So we’re going to start with Wells Fargo. Next on the list will be Sam’s Club, so let’s drag that up. And I don’t know if Shipley’s or Walmart will be better so let’s do Shipley’s next and then Walmart. Let’s flip that around. I don’t think it’s going to make too much of a difference, but as you can see, just dragging it around just gives you the details and shortens up the time of where we’re going to go. If you click on ‘Details’ down here, it will actually give you all of the different directions of where you’re going. So that’s nice. We’re going to click back out of that. If you need to continue adding destinations, just type them in and just put them in your order. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

More specific searches in Microsoft Outlook
 
01:49
Using keywords to search in Outlook will give you better more specific results when searching. Try from:, to:, subject: and then your keyword to find better results. Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way on how to load up the ScaleForms app from the Microsoft store. So here, I’m at the desktop. Down here, in the task bar, I have the Microsoft store icon. If you don’t have the icon in your taskbar, you can click on the Start menu and you can look for it there. Let’s click on the store icon. It might take a few moments to load up. Up here in the search bar, we’re going to type in “scaleforms.” Click on that. Over here, we’re going to click on ‘Install.’ We’re going to let it install. It might take a few moments to do that. We’re going to let it go ahead and do its thing. Now it’s installed. You can just click on it immediately from here. It’ll open right up for you. Before we do anything with ScaleForms, we’re just going to come up here and we’re going to click on the little ‘x’ and close it. We come up here and we’re going to close the store. You can see that there is no icon on the desktop and there is no icon in our taskbar. So we’re going to click on our Start menu here and we’re going to right click here and pin this to our taskbar. If it’s not here, you can click on ‘Search.’ [Type in] “scaleforms” and you can right-click and pin it to Start or remove it from Start. Whichever you would like. So we take it out, put it back in and now it’s there. Let’s open it up and ScaleForms loads up for us. The first thing you need to do is go to ‘Settings’ and put in your ScaleForms settings. From here, you can watch the introduction on how to use ScaleForms from the Braintek channel. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video teasers. Have a great day!

Whats My IP address
 
02:33
Hi! Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to look up your IP address – both your internal and external. Let’s get started. First, let’s start with the internal. So, down here, in the search, you can type in “cmd” and we’re going to come up with the Command Prompt. Let’s open that up. From the Command Prompt, we’re going to type in “ipconfig” and what it does is it shows you the different adapters so you might have a wired connection or a wireless connection or both. You can have others as well. So here, it tells us that our Ethernet adapter – which is our wired connection – has an IP address of this: 192.168.30.77. That’s our internal IP address. Now, a little bit more information, I can type in “ipconfig /all” and it’ll show me more information. It’ll show me information like what is my DHCP server, what’s my gateway, what are my DNS servers that are attached to this device. What’s my MAC address, my IP6 address, all kinds of different things. So here’s more information. Here is the difference between them: at the top, it’s very brief and then down here there’s a lot more information that is related to my wired connections. Now, on this computer, I don’t happen to have wireless, but if I did, you would see another adapter that was wireless and it would show similar settings but on your connected wireless network. Let’s go ahead and close that. We’re going to open a browser and from here, you want to look up your IP address. There’s a couple different things you could do. You could go to www.braintek.com/ip and it will show you your internet-connected IP address. This will change based on the location you are at. So, if you are at McDonald’s or at Starbucks wireless, you will have their external IP address. If you are at the office, it’ll be that. If you are at your house, it will be different and sometimes if you are at a house, that IP address will change as well, based on the internet provider that you have. Another way, if you don’t remember that, is from Google, you can just type in “whats my ip” and Google will tell you “Hey, your public IP address is this.

Set Computer in Developer Mode
 
03:09
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to setup your Windows machine to be in developer mode so that you can install unsigned, developed apps. So this would be useful if you were a beta tester, for example, for an app. Generally, as the developer, your developer machine would already be ready to go, but if you are testing on some other machine, this procedure will be very helpful to help other users test your program. So let’s get started. First thing we need to do is we need to have your Windows developer account. I’m on a Windows 10 machine, so we’re going to do that. So we’re going to open up PowerShell on the computer that you’re going to do this on and when you do it, you’re going to run PowerShell as administrator so click ‘Yes’ when it asks. Alright, so here’s PowerShell. [Type:“Show-WindowsDeveloperRegistration”] Okay, and in a moment, it should – there you go, enable developer mode for 10. Now, my machine is already in developer mode, but here, you would login with your credentials. Second, most likely your app is going to be unsigned so when you submit it to Microsoft, it will become signed with your certificates so we need to do [type:“set-executionpolicy remotesigned”]. You’re going to say yes to all of those changes – a – and that’s it. Then from here, you’ll be able to install apps. Now there’s a couple different ways you can do that. You can either do it the hard way or the easy way. So the easy way: let’s go find one that I’ve got on here. So here’s an app that I’ve been working on called Scale Forms and you can come in here to this ‘Add-AppDevPackage’ and you can right-click and run with PowerShell and that’ll install it on your computer. The other way you can do it is you can do it from PowerShell itself so you can browse to that folder and then you could type out that ‘Add-AppDevPackage.ps1’. Do it after you do this. this is much easier to just right-click on it and run PowerShell. So that’ll help you install your programs. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

So we’re going to go ahead and create a Firefox account. I’m 42 by the way. I do not want the latest news and we’re going to choose what we want to sync. We’re going to sign. The email’s been sent. Let’s go ahead and confirm that email. Account’s been verified. Alright, so let’s come over here. What do we want to sync?

Setup Email on iPhone
 
02:25
Setup your Exchange Email on your iPhone Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to add your exchange email to your iPhone. So from your iPhone, open up your ‘Settings,’ add an account, and choose ‘Exchange.’ Go ahead and type in your email address. Type in your password. Click ‘Next.’ Type in your Server name. Type in the Domain, which is not always required and type in your User Name. Click ‘Next.’ If we get everything right, we should see a bunch of check marks. Here we can decide which options we want to sync. In this case, we’re going to sync our mail. We’re not going to do our contacts. We’re going to do our calendars, reminders, notes. If we turn on the contacts, it will tell us we need to delete what’s on the phone. So if you’re prepared to do that, I would certainly encourage that. I think it’s better to maintain contacts through Outlook, but in this case, we’re going to choose no. We’re going to ‘Save’ it. Your account has been added. We’re going to go back out. Open up your email. Here we have some new emails that were sent earlier today. So we can compose a new email. Go ahead and send that. We should get a new email here in a moment. Thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Check out our other videos on the Braintek channel and have a great day!

Clean Phone Charger Port
 
02:04
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m having problems with my phone getting charged. So every time I plug it in at night, you know, it’s supposed to charge. For some reason, the charger port doesn’t seem to be working so today, I’m going to show you how to fix that. Let’s get started! So, if you’re like me, you happen to put your phone in your pocket all the time. Today, for this, we’re going to need a paper clip and obviously a phone. That’s it. Let’s take the paper clip and we’re just going to open it up and what we’re going to do is we’re going to take this paper clip and dig into here and see what comes out. Be careful with it. Not lots of lint, but often times, the lint from your pocket gets in here and messes up the connections. This is a real simple fix. You can see the lint on that. It’s coming out. Now, after you’ve got all that lint cleaned out, the next thing would be to plug it in and see if it makes a better connection. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber and have a great day! ***WARNING*** Be gentle as you could damage the charger port on your phone.

Manage Antispam in Office 365
 
02:26
Hi! Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to manage your antispam settings in Office 365. Let’s get started. Alright, as you can see, I’m already logged into my Office 365 account. Go ahead and do so on yours. Go to http://portal.office.com. Login with your email address and password. Once there, if you’re not already in email, you can click on the little icon in the corner and go to Mail. Here, we’re going to click on the gear in the upper right corner and in the settings, we’re going to look for Mail. That’ll give us the mail options. You can clear that menu out. Over here, on the left hand side, we can look for Block or allow under Accounts. From this option, we can either add people to our safe list or block people in our block list. When we’re adding or blocking, you can block a simple email address or you can block an entire domain. We’ll go ahead and click on + and here, you can block everybody “@somedomain.com” or you can block “[email protected]” There they are added. You can of course delete that. You can edit an existing one. You can also trust people that are currently in your contact list so that’s actually very helpful so they don’t get automatically blocked. You can add people here. You can don’t trust people unless it comes from my safe list. Now, if you do that, only people trusted in your safe list will be able to email you and then everybody else will get blocked. I don’t like that option because if I am expecting mail from – or let’s say I am not expecting mail from somebody and they’re not on your safe list, they’ll have to call you up and say “Hey, can you add me to your safe list” and whatnot so I typically don’t enable that option. When you’re completed, click on Save so you can save the changes to your antispam settings and you can go back to using your email. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

First, we’re going to click ‘File,’ click ‘Save As.’ Here we’re going to hit ‘Browse.’ Here we’re going to pick a location. For this example we’re just going to pick the ‘Desktop.’ We’re going to give it a name. We’re just going to type ‘1’ and then most importantly, we need to click under ‘Save as type’ – we’re going to pick PDF. On the ‘Desktop’ here, we’re going to click ‘Save’ and it saved our document here and as you can tell it opened our document as a PDF to show that is was completed. Alright, so let’s try to do that same thing with Excel. So I have an Excel document opened here and same kind of thing. Again, we’re going to click ‘File,’ ‘Save As,’ ‘Browse,’ we’re going to pick the ‘Desktop,’ give it a name, and we’re going to pick ‘PDF’ from the list, and we’re going to save it again and the same thing happens as it creates the test PDF document and then opens it up so we can preview it and that’s all we do to save a Word document or Excel document or any Office document as a PDF. Thank you for watching.

Block Ads in Firefox
 
01:21
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to block ads while browsing the internet, using Firefox. Let’s get started! So you can see here, I’ve got CNET open and it’s got a Verizon/Xfinity ad up at the top, on the sides, over here on the bottom. It’s everywhere and if you keep going down, there are probably some more ads displayed in the site, which slows down the page, and can sometimes be quite annoying. So, we’re going to click over here on this little lined button up in the upper right corner. We’re going to click on ad-ons and under the extensions section, we’re going to search for Adblock Plus. Here it comes up with an ABP stop icon. We’re going to click install and download it. You can see right away that its installed over here. So let’s come back over here to CNET. We’re going to refresh the page and the ads are gone. Now, it still has the spaces here, but no ads from Verizon are being displayed on it – helps speed up the page and makes it a lot quicker for you. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. I hope you found it very helpful. Please become a subscriber and have a great day!

Set Out of Office
 
01:32
Set your Outlook Out of Office Reply. Welcome to the Braintek internet tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek, and today I’m going to show you how to set your Microsoft out of office inside of Outlook. At the moment, I’ve got Outlook open. I’m going to click on ‘File,’ ‘Automatic Replies,’ and we’re going to bullet ‘Send automatic replies,’ and both here ‘Inside [and] Outside My Organization,’ I’m going to type out the message I’d like. “Thank you for contacting me. I am currently on vacation until June 1st. For immediate assistance, please contact the help desk at (281) 367-8253 or email [email protected]” And “Thank you.” And then the other thing I can do is I can set this option to end my automatic replies all by itself or if you’d rather manage it yourself, you can certainly do that. Click ‘Okay.’ And here in yellow, it indicates that the Automatic Office is turned on and if you click over here, you’ll notice that up at the top, it also says that your Automatic Replies are turned on. So then anytime someone sends you an email, it’ll automatically send out that response. And of course when you get back into the office, if you don’t have it scheduled to turn off, you can just click ‘Turn Off.’ Now it’s off. If you need to go back and manage it, click ‘File,’ ‘Automatic Replies,’ and you can make changes as necessary. Thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Have a great day!

ScaleForms
 
05:35
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to use ScaleForms. ScaleForms is a program that allows you to fill out different forms submitted to the website. So here we have ScaleForms up on the screen, as you can see. We’re going to start off by going to ‘Settings’ and filling out the pertinent information for this. We’re going to start with my log in information. Your name. Whatever your tech ID is. I’m just going to use 1234 since I really don’t have one. The truck that you’re using. So we have a Ford 250. These can be any default action so we’re going to leave that blank for now. And of course the address of the office that you have. And then I’m going to give myself a signature. That’s good for now. I’m going to save, go back, and all of my settings are here so that’s great. So as you can see here, we don’t have any information in here so after we’ve done the settings, we can then do our first sync. Once the sync completes, we’ll have some customers. So here for the office that I’m in – I’m in the San Antonio office – so we’ve got all these different customers that are showing up. Alright, so what we’re going to do first is we’re going to fill out a form and as you’ll notice a new thing we’ve added is ‘Get Signature.’ You don’t need to worry about that quite yet. We’re going to pick a customer. For this, I’m just going to pick my test company and we’re going to pick some equipment that we’re going to be filling out and then we’re going to pick a form that we’re going to be working on. We’ll start off with this “Calibration Certificate.” Here is the form and as you can see there is no signature down at the bottom like there used to be. We’re going to fill out the task number and again, I’m just going to use some bogus data for this since I really don’t fill out these forms. It just gives you an idea of how this works. We’re going to fill out some test data. You can see that it is calculating for us – this tolerance units. Almost done. I don’t want to email the customer. Normally, you would leave this filled out so the customer would receive the form when we’re done. Put in the next date and submit. So now we have one form completed. If we come over here to settings, you can see here under completed forms, we have one form completed so that’s good, but I’m going to fill out another form. I’ve got a bunch of scales I need to do some different things on so, I’m going to get another one. So now, we have the yard scale and we’re going to put in some more information. Whatever this is that you find that you would use for that. We’re going to fill out some form here so you’re going to go along doing this yourself. I’m not going to continue on with that. So now, at the moment, I’m done with all my scales that I need to fill out my forms for. Typically I’d hit ‘Sync,’ but before I hit ‘Sync,’ I have to get the signature from the customer. So we’re going to go do that. As you can see, in this company list, it only shows you the company that you filled out forms for. We’re going to get a signature from the customer and we’re going to ‘Submit’ that. When we’re done, we’re going to ‘Sync.’ So it’s done and in a moment here, we should be able to get an email. The email came in and here is what it looks like. So as you can see, on the first form, we filled out ones, twos, and threes. It grabbed the signature for the customer and then for my own signature. If we keep going down, it has the fours and then this part we didn’t fill out. It has the signatures there. That’s how you use ScaleForms. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorial on ScaleForms. Check out our other videos on the Braintek channel and have a great day!

Outlook Signatures
 
04:00
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek and today, I’m going to show you how to put signatures in Outlook. More than one. Let’s get started. Alright, so we’ve got Outlook open here, as you can see. We’re going to click on new email message and as you can see, there’s no signature that comes up. So over here, under the signature area, we’re going to click on ‘Signatures.’ This brings up our signature configuration page. Here we’ve got “signatures to edit” and we have nothing. So, we have the ‘New’ button. Let’s click ‘New.’ Since this is going to be for any new messages we send out of Outlook, we’re going to type in “New.” Alright, so we’ve got that. Down here in the body, we’re going to type in what we want and then make it pretty or however you want to do that. So we’re going to do “Thank you,” and we’re going to come over here and we’re going to add a picture. If you’ve got a picture that you can import, like a company logo, we’re going to put that in there. Then we’re going to do “Greg Brainerd—Braintek, LLC” and then our address. This will be everything that you want to be in the signature block. You can include your address. You can include all kinds of stuff. Whatever you want. If you’ve got a disclaimer, you may want to put that in here as well. And then also, a lot of times, people will want to put in some saying, disclaimer, or maybe a special they’re running. You could maybe put that on here, like “Become a YouTube subscriber today.” So whatever you want to put in here. And I want to make this bolded. I want to center it. I don’t like that. I want to change the font. I want to make it a little bit bigger. Alright, so all that looks pretty good. So let’s test that out. Let’s close this message. ‘New.’ Just like we typed it out. The signature came right up. Just the way we like it. Oh you know, I really don’t like this so we’re going to come right back into signatures and we’re going to put this back. I don’t want that bolded. I want that a little bit smaller and we’ll go back to this font here. Alright so we’re going to go back. We’re going to hit ‘Save.’ Now let’s say that I want a different message on my replies because I don’t need all of that stuff and typically if I reply back and forth, it gets real big with all the signatures. So we’ll just put in here a generic reply signature. In this, we’re just going to say, “Thanks, Greg Brainerd,” “Braintek.” Hit ‘Save.’ We’re going to put this over here on reply. So now we have the new message for those and reply for those. Click ‘OK’ and then here, we’re going to test it out. That’s how it’s going to look for that. Looks good. Let’s say that I want another signature. I want to make something else. We’ll name this “Special.” Let’s create a new one. “Thank you for contacting Braintek. Become a YouTube subscriber today.” Alright, so now, it doesn’t have anything. We’re going to hit ‘Save.’ Let’s say that I’ve got a message that I want to use that specific one on. We come up here to ‘Signature.’ Click our other signature and then that puts it down there. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber on our channel.

Display Wifi Password
 
01:12
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to get that wireless password you forgot. So I wanted to connect another computer to my wireless network or I want to give it to a colleague or friend and I’ve just forgotten my password. So here’s how I’m going to look for it. I’m currently connected to a Windows 10 machine. We’re going to right-click down here. We’re going to open the ‘Network and Sharing Center.’ From here, it shows you I’m currently connects to my “itsWifi” wireless network. We’re going to click on that link and it’s going to bring up our Wi-Fi status. We’re going to come over here to ‘Wireless Properties.’ We’re going to click on the ‘Security’ tab. Here is our ‘Network security key.’ So all I have to do is click show characters. Now, the computer requires a password so it’ll shield incase it’s going to prompt for that. So I click on that and it displays our password. Now I can give it off to my colleagues and friends. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

Find large file issues
 
02:45
How do you find out which files are using up your hard drive space? Welcome to the Braintek internet video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I am going to show you what utility to use to discover files that are taking up a lot of space on your hard drive. So, first I’m going to open up the hard drive and we’re going to notice that my C drive here is getting low and it’s reporting in the red, so I’ve got to figure out what on my C drive is taking up all that space. So, we use a little utility called “TreeSize” and you can download it from the http://jam-software.com/ website and they have a little free trial that you can get. They have both a professional version and a personal version you can get. The personal version is a little cheaper – $24.95. And I already have it installed. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to open it up and run a check on our C drive. And as you can see, it’s calculating all the different spaces out. It’s got a little hour glass there. It just finished and right here, it says that the user folder on my drive is taking up half of my C drive. So we’re going to expand that out and we’re going to find out that the admin account that I currently log in with is using up all the space and inside there, there’s two folders. One is the ‘AppData’ and one is ‘Downloads.’ We’re going to take a look at the AppData one. We’re going to notice that 28GB is “Roaming” and “Apple Computer,” “MobileSync,” and “Backups.” So it looks like the Apple iTunes backups are using a lot of space. And then, under Downloads, we have a large Log file and that’s using up all the space. So we’re just going to double click on that folder and what it does is it takes us right to this folder and we can see all of these old log files that are all fairly large in size. They’re pretty old. So what we can do is we can just select them all. Hold the shift key on the keyboard and delete them – assuming you don’t need these logs. And then what we can do is we can come back over here and rerun the drive scan and it’ll take a few moments here. And it looks like we have a larger chunk of free space available. Here we have 49GB of free space, 21%, which is not too bad. So, we’re back in the blue and that’s how we detect where all of our large files are at on our hard drive.

Send Delayed Emails
 
02:22
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to send a delayed email from within Outlook. Let’s get started. So, we’ve got Outlook open. We’re going to click on New Email message. In the ‘To:’ we’re just going to send it to myself. This is a delayed email. Alright, and under here under the tags, we have this little Message Options icon. Click on that. Do not deliver before. We’re going to put the time as 1:13 PM. Close and send. I don’t have any attachments so we’re going to send it anyway. So let’s watch the time and see what happens. Once it gets to 1:13, it should send the message out. Let’s see what happens. Alright, so the message just sent. It’s no longer in our Outbox and that’s how you send a delayed message. Now, let’s explore how to do this on an Android device. Alright, so now we are on our Android phone and what we’re going to do is we’re going to send the delayed message from here. Go ahead and let’s create a new message from your email. This one, we’re going to send this to whoever we want. We’re going to send this to ourselves again. Up here, we’re going to click on this little three button icon to give us our options. We’re going to do ‘Schedule email’ and the time is at 1:33 so we’re going to set this at 1:34. Click OK. Click Done and click Send. Alright, let’s go check. Now, we have a Scheduled Outbox ready to go out at 1:34 and when the time comes, that email will send. The email just sent and here it is. There’s our test.

Assemble Unifi Wireless Access Point
 
02:32
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek and today, I’m going to show you how to put together your wireless UniFi Access Point. Here, we have an Access Point. You can see here that it has a cover. We have the power cord. We have the injector and we have two Ethernet cables. You’ll need all of this in order to make this work. First things first, we’re going to flip over your UniFi and it has this cover on it. You just rotate that slightly to remove the cover. Next, you’ll notice that it exposes the Ethernet port. We’ll take one of the Ethernet cords and we’re going to plug it in. now, we can put the cover back on and then you can plug this part into POE. Next, we’re going to take the other cable. We’re going to plug it into LAN and this cable will go to the wall. Next, we’re going to take your power cord. Plug that in and plug this into the wall. When you first plug in the Access Point, you’ll notice that nothing happens. Shortly afterwards, it’ll start going amber. You can find of see the amber light blinking there. When it’s fully ready, this light will turn green. Let’s give it a few moments. Here, you can now see that the Access Point is ready to go. It has a green light and you should be able to connect your wireless devices to it. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber and have a great day!

Burn Bootable ISO onto a USB
 
02:59
Convert an ISO to a bootable USB drive. Hello and welcome again to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way to take an ISO image and burn it to a USB. I already have my ISO downloaded here to the desktop. And we’re going to be using this program called Rufus. If you don’t have Rufus, you can come to this website – https://rufus.akeo.ie/ -- and you’ll see this website here. Scroll down to the download. Currently, at this point, Rufus 2.2 is the latest. Go ahead and just click on that and download it to save to your desktop and then we’re going to be good to go. Alright, so the other thing you’re going to need is a USB device that’s larger than your ISO. I have an 8GB USB stick. I’m going to go ahead and insert that into my machine here. Alright, so here it is and as you can see, it’s empty. So now what we’re going to do is we’re going to open up Rufus. “Do you want to check any updates?” At this point, I don’t want to. You may want to. Alright, so here’s the Rufus program and it finds our USB that we are going to be going to. It tells us some default options here and right here, it asks us about the ISO image that we’re going to use. So we’re going to browse by clicking on here. We’re going to pick our ISO image and down here at the bottom it says it’s ready to go. It’s using this ISO that we just selected and we’re going to hit ‘Start.’ It says here that it’s going to destroy all the data on the USB, so make sure that you have a backup copy of whatever is on that USB if it’s important to you. Click ‘Okay.’ As you can see, it starts going along and depending on how large your ISO is will depend on how long this takes. Alright, so it’s just about completed. Now it says that it’s ready and we can close this and if we open up our USB, you can see that there’s a bunch of stuff on it from that ISO image. So I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek internet tutorials. Check out our other videos on our Braintek channel and have a great day!

Make Bar Graph in Microsoft Excel
 
02:41
Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek, and today, I’m going to show you how to make a bar graph in Excel. So first, let’s open up Excel. Alright, so we’ve got Excel here, so now what we’re going to do is we’re just going to come up with some arbitrary data that we can throw into an Excel sheet. So we’re going to start with [row: 2013 2014 2015 2016] [column: Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Total]. Alright, so now we’re going to make a nice little grid out of all of this stuff so it’s easy for us to read. We’re going to total out our columns by creating a sum. Alright, so we’ve got some data here, you can see the totals going on so now we’re going to create a bar graph. So we’re going to come over here to ‘Insert’ and we’re going to pick this very first one and we’re going to pick a bar graph. I’ll move it over here for you. Alright, so here, we’re going to select data. Under the ‘Chart data range:’ we’re going to click on this button and we’re going to choose the totals that we’re going to want to display. So after you click on this, you can just click and drag and it will highlight all of those cells. Hit ‘Enter.’ As you can see here, it automatically started to fill it in, but it’s got “1, 2, 3, 4” which we don’t like that. So under ‘Horizontal access labels,’ we’re going to click ‘Edit.’ We’re going to click this little button and it’s going to do that same thing so we’re going to click and drag our titles and ow it’s got 13-16. If you want, you can right click and do ‘Add Data Labels’ and it will put the totals on top of the chart. We can rename the chart. We’re going to call this “Sales Data” and save that off. Now you’ve got a new little bar chart in your Excel document and you can show off your Excel skills. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.

Use ScalePix
 
02:25
Demo of how to use ScalePix Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to use ScalePix. So right now, we’re inside ScalePix for the first time and what we need to do is we need to click on ‘Settings’ here at the bottom. We need to type in our username. Type in your password. And it takes you back out to the main screen here. So from here, we’re going to type in a Place ID for the company that you’re going to upload some pictures for. We’re going to be using a test company. We’re going to hit ‘Lookup.’ Right here it tells us that we are using this company and it has different equipment you can pick from. On this one, there is only one to choose from and we’re going to pick a photo that we have already had uploaded. We’re going to pick from our photos. We’re going to browse through our photos and we’re going to pick this. This is of course just a demonstration. So this would be some scale that we are inputting in here. And once you’ve picked the photos that you want, click ‘Upload’ here at the bottom and it’s going to upload your photos to the website. Once it’s done, it clears out the photos so if you have more photos that you’d like to add for this company, you can do so now or if you want to use a different company totally, just hit ‘Clear’ down here at the bottom. And that’s how you use ScalePix. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Check out our other videos on the Braintek channel and have a great day!

How to Install ScaleForms from the Microsoft Store App in Windows 8.1 Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way on how to load up the ScaleForms app from the Microsoft store. So here, I’m at the desktop. Down here, in the task bar, I have the Microsoft store icon. If you don’t have the icon in your taskbar, you can click on the Start menu and you can look for it there. Let’s click on the store icon. It might take a few moments to load up. Up here in the search bar, we’re going to type in “scaleforms.” Click on that. Over here, we’re going to click on ‘Install.’ We’re going to let it install. It might take a few moments to do that. We’re going to let it go ahead and do its thing. Now it’s installed. You can just click on it immediately from here. It’ll open right up for you. Before we do anything with ScaleForms, we’re just going to come up here and we’re going to click on the little ‘x’ and close it. We come up here and we’re going to close the store. You can see that there is no icon on the desktop and there is no icon in our taskbar. So we’re going to click on our Start menu here and we’re going to right click here and pin this to our taskbar. If it’s not here, you can click on ‘Search.’ [Type in] “scaleforms” and you can right-click and pin it to Start or remove it from Start. Whichever you would like. So we take it out, put it back in and now it’s there. Let’s open it up and ScaleForms loads up for us. The first thing you need to do is go to ‘Settings’ and put in your ScaleForms settings. From here, you can watch the introduction on how to use ScaleForms from the Braintek channel. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video teasers. Have a great day!

Welcome to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, I’m going to show you how to sideload an app on an Android device. Today, in my demonstration, I have a Galaxy S5. Let’s get started! First, you’re going to need an APK, which is an Android application. So if you have one of those that maybe you downloaded from a website or what someone has given to you, go ahead and email it to yourself or have them email it to you. That’s probably one of the easier ways to do this and then from there, we’ll go ahead and load up the email on the phone and we’ll install it. Let’s get started. So here, we have the Galaxy phone and what we’re going to do is we’re going to open up our email. Here, we have this file that I sent to myself. You can see here that I have ScalePix. What we’re going to go ahead and do is we’re going to install this. Click on that and it’s going to ask us to download it. We’re going to say sure. It’s going to take a little bit depending on how large the file is. It’s done. Here, it stored it for us. We’re going to go ahead and click on Preview and it says install has been blocked for security reasons, your device is currently set to block these kinds of installations. It wants us to go into the settings and allow unknown sources. So we’re going to go to Settings and check this box to allow unknown. Are you sure? Yeah, okay. Now it brings us to the ScalePix install so we’re going to go ahead and install. This will take a few moments to install. It says it’s done and now, we can open up the app. Here is the app. Now, if we go back out, where did it put it? So, we’re going to go to apps and it added it to the last page. Now you can drag this out or open it up—however you want to set that up. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber today and have a great day.

Win10 Shortcut Keys
 
07:04
Welcome again to the Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, we’re going to talk about Windows 10 shortcut keys. Let’s get started. So, a couple different ones that we can do are the windows key. That’s the key that’s next to the Ctrl and Alt on your keyboard and has the Microsoft logo on it. Click that. If you just press it by itself, it brings up the start menu. That’s easy enough. • So, if we do Windows + A, it brings up the action center. The action center has a couple different things like, over here, you can to Tablet Mode, Connect, Notes, go to your Settings, Location, set it on Quiet Hours, connect to a VPN if you’ve got one, etc. Then, it shows you some of these notifications – Windows Feedback, Security and Maintenance, you can get into Settings or you can clear these messages. So that’s the action center – Windows + A. • Next, if you’ve got a microphone on your computer and speakers, you can do Windows + C, which doesn’t do anything visually, but Cortana will start listening to you actively and you can start typing “Hey Cortana, I want you to search for [this or that].” • Next, if you actually want to bring up the search, you can do Windows + S and then all of a sudden, you can start searching with Cortana, assuming that it’s set up. At the moment, on this machine, I don’t have it set up. • Windows + I brings up the settings. You can also get to Settings by clicking on the Windows Key and going to Settings, but if you want to do that instead, you can do Windows + I and it brings it right up for you. • Windows + Tab will bring up will bring up the tab view. So, you can figure out – Hey! I’ve got all these things open, what do I want to do. Windows + Tab and then you can tab through and you can get to that stuff. • Next, we have Windows + X. Windows + X brings up the alternate start menu. This is the same as if you right-click on this, it brings up this menu. If you just left-click, it brings up this part, but if you right-click, it brings up this part of the menu. This is the old traditional Control Panel and this is the management system – a little more of the nuts and bolts of how Windows does it. You can also get to it by doing Windows + X. Nice and quick for you right? • This is always a good one. If you’ve got Microsoft Word open, and I wanted to take this and put is on one side of the other screen, I can do Windows + [arrow key—up, right, left, or down]. I can have two things (or more) nicely snapped with another portrait of my screen. So, that’s Windows + arrow key (up, down, left, or right). It will snap to different sides. • When I do Windows + E, it will bring up the folder explorer. So then I can get into my different files on the computer – my pictures, videos. That’s Windows + E. • Windows + L, which I don’t know if you can see that, but it just locked my screen. Now I have to sign back in. Windows + L will automatically lock it. Just like if you push Ctrl + Alt + Del, it brings up the menu so that you can lock, switch users, sign out, etc. • Alt + PrtScr. This is a good one. Let’s say that I want to take a print screen. Let’s open up Word as well so I can demonstrate this better. Alright, let’s go to the CNN website. If I do Alt + PrtScr and I come over here and I paste that, it took just a screenshot of just this window. Now, if I want another screenshot of the entire desktop, I can do Windows + PrtScr and then I paste it in there, it now, not only includes the one window, but it includes all of the windows – the start bar at the bottom. Everything. If you had dual monitors, it would grab everything on that as well. So, Alt + PrtScr on the focused on window, will do just that, where Windows + PrtScr will get everything. • A couple of other things, if you are in the browser, you can do Ctrl + T. It will open up a new tab for you. So I’m over here, I can do Ctrl + T, www.braintek.com, I can quickly get to that. • If I’m inside I browser, I can do Ctrl + D and that will add it as a bookmark. • Ctrl + L brings me to the URL so I can start typing in another page. I want to go to msn.com. No, I really want to go to Toyota.com or wherever you want to go to. • Ctrl + Tab will take you through your tabs within the browser. Cool, right? • Ctrl + Enter will type in the .com for me so I don’t have to type that out for myself. So, those are a bunch of shortcut keys. I’ve got a full list on the Braintek website. I will put that URL here in the comments. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Become a subscriber and have a great day!

Capture Screenshots on your Windows computer
 
05:31
Hi, welcome to Braintek video tutorials. My name’s Greg, owner of Braintek. Today, we’re going to talk about how to take screen captures. A lot of times, you’ll see on websites, images that are captured from someone’s computer. Well, I’m going to show you how to do that in this week’s tutorial. Today, we’re going to use two different utilities. One is going to be the snippet utility which comes with Windows and another one of my favorites is called Greenshot. Let’s get started. So, to start with, we’re going to open up something that we can take a screenshot of. We’re going to just open up Notepad. This is just an example. I’m just going to type, “This is what I’d like to take a picture of.” Alright, next we’re going to get to snippet. So you can just come down here and in the search bar, type snipping tool. It’s pretty easy to use and all you do is you click on New. It gives you this little cursor and we can just take a little picture. Pretty simple, right? Now if we want to do some things, like I want to highlight this text, I can say what I want to highlight. We can take a little pen and point to something or you can erase stuff. Let’s take the black pen and I want you to look at this right here. Then when you’re ready, you can just come up here to File, Save, and just save it as a picture to your pictures folder or wherever you want to put that. Next, we’re going to use Greenshot. Now, this is what I like to use. I don’t have it loaded so we’re going to go and we are going to download Greenshot. Open up the browser and do a search for Greenshot. It’s free by the way. It’s a great little utility. www.getgreenshot.org/ is where you get it from. Download Greenshot. Alright, click Download. It’s going to give us the installer. We want to save the file. Go over here to our downloads. Now, this may be different, depending on what browser you use. Internet Explorer will ask you to open or run or you can save the file, if you want to save the file. Chrome drops it down to the bottom of the toolbar. So they’re a little different so you just have to know where your stuff is going. The User Account Control is going to ask you what you want to do with this. Yeah, I want to allow this. Go ahead through the set up. I’m going to close the browser now. Alright, so now we’re finished. Do we want to start it? We do. Now to use it, it’s pretty cool. On the keyboard, you hit the Print Screen button. Normally, it’s above your arrows at the very top of the keyboard, next to the function keys. So we’re going to hit that and it give us this magnified cursor. So again, we just take and drag it. Now, it gives us an option here. We can either save as, save directly—which is to the desktop, we can open it or do some other stuff with it like dump it into Word, Excel, Paint, etc. I personally like to open it in the Image Editor all the time. Here is the image editor. You can do all kinds of stuff. I like their tools a little bit better than the snipping tool. They have these different arrows which you can make thicker, change the color real quickly. I love this little feature: these little counters. So I can say this is the first one you want to do…this is the second one you want to do. You can highlight and change the highlight color you want to be red or something. You can crop. I’ve got too much. I only want this much. There’s a whole bunch of different things you can do with this. If you want to delete something, you can just right-click on it and delete it. You can take this stuff and move it around if you want. When you’re done, you can save as, save directly, copy to clipboard. A lot of times, if I am typing an email, I’ll just copy to my clipboard, throw it in my email, and I can send screenshots to different people on things I’m trying to show them. That’s great though if you want to save it for later or maybe put it on a website or whatever, you want to save it someplace. Save it to pictures, like we did with the other one. So let’s go ahead and look at our pictures. You can see here, we’ve got the one that we just looked at. It looks great. Then the same thing with the other one – with the snipping tool. Those are two little utilities that can help you capture the screen with some screenshots. They can do some helpful little editing. I’d like to thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials.
