Tom’s Tech Tip: Should Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Upgrade to Windows 10 or Not?

This is one Tech Tip that practically writes itself. Whether or not a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant should upgrade to Windows 10 when it comes out this fall depends on where you are now. I’m not talking about whether you’re in Poughkeepsie, Pittsburgh or Port Huron – what I mean is what version of Windows is running now on the computer you use in your legal nurse consulting business.

Tom’s Tech Tip: 9 Best Internet Practices for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

We all know that the Internet is a lawless place with dangers abounding in every corner and neighborhoods no self-respecting Certified Legal Nurse Consultant should ever go into. Unfortunately the Internet will probably never be a completely safe and secure place. Webizens will always include virus-writers, data thieves, hackers and worse.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Two Easy MS Word Keyboard Shortcuts for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

At the CLNC Certification Seminar while discussing Microsoft® Word with a group of future Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, the conversation came around to highlighting and deleting (or moving) a sentence or paragraph in a document such as a legal nurse consulting case report. I asked the group how they cut and pasted the text and received the expected answer. “I take my mouse in hand, highlight the text and then click on the Scissors icon and then the Paste icon.”

Tom’s Tech Tip: 3 File-Naming Best Practices for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

Today’s Tech Tip was suggested by one of our staff who, coincidentally, also does a lot of tech support. It comes from an issue that we face here at LegalNurse.com and that is naming myriad documents we create and store on a daily basis. When you’re trying to quickly locate a document that’s buried in the subfolder of a secondary subfolder of a tertiary subdirectory of a departmental master directory, it can be pretty difficult if that document isn’t named and filed correctly.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Smartphone Scanning Made Simple for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

I admit it – I lose things. I lose my car keys. I lose my wallet. I lose documents. I even lost Vickie once in Hong Kong (not a good thing). But now thanks to an app called TurboScan, I will never lose another document (Vickie and the rest I’ll just have to keep better track of). I’ve long wanted a super-portable scanner and photographing documents with my iPhone® just didn’t do the trick. Sure that worked for things like dry-cleaning or shoe-repair tickets but not for receipts and important documents.

Tom’s Tech Tip: How Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Can Protect Their iPhones® from Loss in One Easy Step

Many Certified Legal Nurse Consultants have enabled the passcode lock to keep spying eyes from looking at the contents of their iPhones and iPads®. Many more CLNC® consultants have followed my advice and also enabled the “Find My iPhone” feature on their iPhones and iPads. That handy feature allows you to locate, within reason, a device that’s gone walkabout or has been left behind in a car, bar, plane, train or office – so long as the missing device is turned on and connected to the Internet.

Tom’s Tech Tip: 3 Reasons for Windows® 7 Users Not to Panic (Yet)

If you haven’t heard, on January 13, 2015 Microsoft ended what’s known as “mainstream support” for Windows 7. Certified Legal Nurse Consultants will be happy to know that this doesn’t mean that Win7 is dead. Perhaps the best way to think of it as having moved into hospice or what Microsoft calls “extended support.” That’s actually a good thing and here are three reasons for CLNC consultant Win7 users not to panic or have anxiety attacks about Windows 8.

If you’re one of my lucky CLNC amigos who received a new PC for Christmas, congratulations! Santa seemed to have run out of MacBook Airs when he dropped down our chimney, so maybe next year for me. But if you were lucky enough to get a new PC, there are some things you need to do before you put it to work.
