iTunes’ Get Info – Make It Awesome!

Hi Friends!

Have you ever explored the various columns you can add to your iTunes Library list? I saw the “Comments” column and went on a quest to find out how to add a comment and found the “Get Info” box. Wow! You can edit a few key fields there. You can even edit the name of the song, artist, genre, and more on the info tab (pictured below). If you’re a runner or like to walk, work out, or ride to upbeat tempos, you can add the beats per minute (BPM). You can make comments that will help trigger your memory or give you a customized field you can sort by in the library list view. For me, my comments will help me remember what songs I want to learn on guitar. My comment there is “repertoire” or “guitar.” It’s YOUR  field, do with it what you will.

To go to the dialog box below in iTunes:

1.   Click on a song

2.   Click on “File”

3.   Go about half way down the drop-down list to “Get Info” and this box will pop up:

Maybe you already checked out the tabs available, but I, myself, LOVE the idea that I can have the lyrics available on iTunes, so I don’t have to go look them up on the Internet.

Have fun with this! It’s almost 2 AM and I’ve had a blast with it!!

Word – Changing Formatting (Special Breaks)

Hi Friends!

This tip will teach you how to go from text across the entire page, then into two columns, then back to across the page:

Before we get started, go to the Home tab, paragraph group, and click on the paragraph symbol to show hidden characters.

1. Type something, anything, at the beginning of your Word document. I spanned the page on purpose.

2. Click the Page Layout tab and hit the drop-down arrow next to “Breaks.”

3. Click on “Continuous Break”

4. On the Page Layout tab still, click “Columns” and then “Two”

5. Type “This is column ONE”

6. Click on “Breaks” then “Column”  and type “This is column TWO”

7. Click on “Breaks” then “Continuous”

8. Click on “Columns” then “one” and type something to the end of the line or more.

Yours should look something like this:

This layout technique is great for recipes, newsletters, and lists without using tabs. Oh, the unhidden markings will disappear if you hit that paragraph xymbol on the Home tab, paragraph group again.

Thanks for stopping by!
