Make text-formatting easy
It’s easy to format text (for example, change font style and size, bold up, italicise, underline and change colours) in Word documents. There are two easy ways to format multiple passages of text quickly. The first way is to select text whose formatting you want to apply elsewhere in your document. Next, click the Format Painter (brush) icon at the top left of the Home tab. Simply select the other passages of text you want to apply this formatting style to.
If you use specific text formatting often, then it’s a good idea to create a new Word style based on it. Once you’ve done this, you can simply highlight any text you want, then select this style to apply it.
To do this, first highlight some text with the formatting you use often. Click the small dropdown menu at the bottom right of the Styles section of the Home tab (see screenshot), click ‘Save Selection as a New Quick Style’, then give your style a name. You’ll now see a preview of how it looks. If you’re happy with it, click OK and the style you created will appear as the first option in the Styles section.
Microsoft’s mobile version of Cortana can show the notifications from your Windows 10 PC on your Android phone or iphone. Download the free Cortana app (Android: www.snipca.com/25558, IOS: www.snipca.com/25557) and then sign in with your Microsoft account details. You’ll need to tap Allow when Cortana requests access to your contacts, calendar and location, or some aspects of the synchronisation process won’t work.
Now, whenever an alert is triggered by Cortana on your PC — perhaps a reminder to bring something home when you’re out and about — that notification will appear on your phone or tablet. This is a twoway street, so you should also see a notification on your PC when you receive a text message on your phone.
To manage how and where notifications appear in the Android app, tap the menu button (three horizontal lines) followed by Settings. On iphones, tap Settings (on your device’s homescreen), Notifications, then Cortana. Switch off ‘Show on Lock Screen’ to keep them private when your device is locked (see screenshot).
