Cool Google Tricks!



Did you know that there are some tricks to Google that most people do not know about? Blow is a listing of a few that I find very helpful!


Pull up the definition of the word by typing define followed by the word you want the definition for. For example, typing: define Finnimbrun would display the definition of that word.

Local search

Visit Google Local enter the area you want to search and the keyword of the place you want to find. For example, typing: Restraunt at the above link would display local restaurants.

Phone number lookup

Enter a full phone number with area code to display the name and address associated with that phone number.

Find weather and movies

Type “weather” or “movies” followed by a zip code or city and state to display current weather conditions or movie theaters in your area. For example, typing weather 80021 gives you the current weather conditions for Broomfield, CO and the next four days. Typing movies 80021 would give you a link for show times for movies in that area.

Track airline flight and packages

Enter the airline and flight number to display the status of an airline flight and it’s arrival time. For example, type: delta 123 to display this flight information if available.

Google can also give a direct link to package tracking information if you enter a UPS, FedEx or USPS tracking number.


Translate text, a full web page, or search by using the Google Language Tools.

Pages linked to you

See what other web pages are linking to your website or blog by typing link: followed by your URL. For example, typing link: displays all pages linking to the website you put in place.

Find PDF results only

Add fileType: to your search to display results that only match a certain file type. For example, if you wanted to display PDF results only type: “HP Prolient” fileType:pdf — this is a great way to find online manuals.


Use the Google Search engine as a calculator by typing a math problem in the search. For example, typing: 200 + 200 would display results as 400.


Quickly get to a stock quote price, chart, and related links by typing the stock symbol in Google. For example, typing: msft will display the stock information for Microsoft.

Creating Multiple Signatures in Outlook 2010


Most users only use a single signature when sending emails but there are few who work at two or more places and need to use different signatures. Users can create multiple signatures in Outlook 2010 and quickly add them on different emails in just 2 clicks. For example, a person using Outlook 2010 on a laptop will use a different signature at home than the one he uses while at work.

Launch Outlook 2010, go to File menu and click Options.













You will reach Outlook Options dialog, select Mail from left sidebar, and from main window click Signatures.



It will bring up Signature and Stationary dialog, click New to start
creating new signature.



Enter an appropriate name for signature and click OK.



Now start editing signature content from Edit signature pane and click Save to save the new signature



Click New to create another signature, give it a name and save it. From Edit signature pane click image button.



You will reach Insert Picture dialog, now select an image for signature
and click Insert



Image is successfully inserted into Edit Signature pane, click Save to
save the newly created signature and click OK.



You will see default signature in new email compose window for adding a
different signature from Message tab under Signature options click the
desired signature.



Upon clicking, it will immediately change signature to selected signature.



Now you’re all set!



How To Delay And Reschedule Emails In Outlook


Have you ever had those times when you need to schedule an email to send at a specific time using outlook?  Here is how it can be done!


1. Tools menu / Rules and Alerts / New Rule.
2. go to Start from a Blank Rule and Select a template box then hit Check messages after sending. Click Next.
3. In the Select conditions list select any options you may want and then hit Next. The better way here is to do not select anything. The next thing will happen is that a confirmation box will appear so you can apply this rule to all emails you send – which is what you want. Just click yes to the confirmation box.
4. The next step is to Select action(s) list. Here you will select the number of minutes you want to delay all emails you send. I will be choosing 10 minutes but be my guess and setup the time delay which is the mostly appropriate to your style. If you emails are very important and everyone is waiting for them you better setup a small delay like 3-5 minutes. If you know that there are big chances something to go wrong you may be setting up a longer delay.
5. Last step is giving a name to this rule. I would use a name like “Delay sent emails by xx minutes” so you may find this rule easier later on if you want to delete it or to edit.

That’s it!

Turn your digital memories into a DVD


Windows 7 by default comes with a DVD Maker software.  Home users will particularly like this tool since it lets them burn DVD movies using their own media like home made videos and digital photos.

The quickest way to make a DVD is to add pictures and videos in Windows DVD Maker, and then burn to a blank DVD. If you want to get creative, you can customize the DVD menu style and text before you burn the DVD.

To open DVD Maker, click the Start button and choose Windows DVD Maker:

The interface is Wizard-based and targets novice home users.  Advanced users might prefer a more complete software like Nero, but for simple DVD making needs, this one will do just fine.

You can add WMV movies to it (no support for AVI or MP4 which can be a downer!) and also pictures.  If you add a bunch of pictures they will appear as a slideshow folder.

You can see the amount of time remaining on your DVD project so you know how much space is still left.  You can also enter your own DVD title which by default contains the date when you open the program.

You can change the order of the media files that you enter using the up and down arrows.

You can also change the drive where you have a DVD burner.  It automatically detects the right drive even if you have more than one DVD drive.

The next window will let you preview your work before burning it.  You can change the menu styles and menu text.

After finalizing the menu text and previewing the DVD movie, click the Burn button to start burning the disc.

The software only provides basic DVD making capabilities.  If you want to do more advanced tasks like cropping or color correction, you may want to look for more higher end tools.
