Tom’s Tech Tip: How to Clear Formatting in Microsoft Word – Made Easy for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

Word has lots of little hidden and not so hidden tricks. One of my favorites is the “clear formatting” button.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Turn Down Your Computer’s Notifications to Get More Done

If you’re a busy legal nurse consultant who’s using Windows® 10 you’ve probably noticed that the “out of the box” installation is pretty noisy. It’s like babysitting a two-year-old.
