Print job won’t come out ?

Sometimes when you go to release your print job, it acts like it’s going to print and then nothing happens…This is usually because there is an error in a print job, either yours or one that was printed before yours.

Here’s what to do. Before you are even logged into the printer, you might notice that the light on the left edge is orange.

If that’s the case, you can look at the job(s) that caused the problem and delete them so that your job can come out. Press the Access button on the far right edge of the screen. Note in the top right corner where it says “Print Error.”

Go ahead and tap the screen there. You will get a screen that looks something like this one with a list of print jobs and show one or  more that say “Printing Error” as the status. Choose the job with the printing error and press “Delete” over to the right.

Once the jobs with errors are gone, printing should resume normally.

One side printing from Excel (and many other programs)

It has been noted that printing documents one-sided is not working as you might expect it to and Microsoft Excel produces so really interesting results when the issue occurs.  The problem stems from the fact that the printers properties override the application (in this case Excel) properties.  Instead of using Excel’s properties to choose one-sided as shown here:

Use the printer’s properties by choosing it here

and then choose One-sided and OK in the dialogue that opens, shown here

Notice that when you return to Excel, the printer has changed the Excel print dialogue to say one-sided AND now it will actually print one-sided.

BitLocker Drive Encryption and Recovery. Plan ahead!

Some things to know about BitLocker:

If what is going on your encrypted drive is important or valuable to you, take the time to save your BitLocker recovery key when it asks you. You can either print it out (to a PDF would be a good choice if you go the print route) or you can save it to a file in a safe place.  Saving it to a file makes it much easier to unlock the drive if you forget the password.

The file or printout both look similar and they provide two pieces of information.  The

  • Identifier:  This is a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identify your drive (in case you have more than one)
  • Recovery Key:  This is the key to unlock the specific drive that matches the identifier.

It looks like this:

img_20160929_111139620

Then if for some reason you have forgotten your password, you can follow these steps to unlock your drive:

  • When you plug in the drive and it asks for your password,
  • choose More Options
  • Then choose Enter Recovery Key
  • Your recovery key goes in the box that appears.  (Not the one with letters.)

Without either the password or a recovery key, you will not unlock the drive so please plan ahead.

Thanks

How to make a link in an email

Making a plain link is easy as all you have to do is type the link and the email program recognizes it for what it is, BUT what if you want to make a link that doesn’t have the same name as the link.

For example, when we say click here, we want you to see and click on the word here and have it take you to somewhere else, like a web page.

No problem at all.  Just type the text you want to have visible and then select it with the mouse, like this:linkhere

Then use the pull down menu to the right of the other formatting to choose the Link icon:

downmenu

The insert link dialogue pops up.  insertEnter the address of where you would like the email recipient to go when they click on your link.  For example..http://help.eppleyits.com to visit the help blog.filledin

Then just hit OK and your link, click here will be complete


 

FYI-for those who are used to creating links with a keyboard shortcut, they also work here.
