A great way to increase the ability to connect when you put a Google Voice number on your Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter,, etc profile.

Want some help Setting up Google Voice:

Setting up a Google Voice account starts with getting a Google Email account at

Once you have a Gmail Account, go to and follow the prompts.

It’s pretty easy. You have to start by associating your Google Voice account with a land line or Mobile phone#. (however the calls do not need to be forwarded there)

How to Right Click with a Mac Mouse

The Targus Presentation Pointer I use is Targus Model AMP18US

 Below I embedded my Presentation for you to see. There does not appear to be a way to AutoStart an Embedded Prezi


  1. Windows XP – Screen Shot

    • To copy the whole screen, press the Print Screen Key, usually labeled “PrtSc” or “Print Screen”.
    • To copy only an open window, click on the window to assure it is active, then press the ALT key and the Print Screen Key at the same time, then release both keys.

    Next, open the application where you would like to paste the image. Paste the image by pressing the Control Key and the V key at the same time. The image should appear in your document.

  2. Windows Vista – Screen Shot

    • You can do it the same way as above (in XP instructions)
    • Or, you can use Vista’s Snipping Tool (if you have a Vista edition other than Home Basic). For more information about the Snipping Tool, click here.

    Follow the instructions below to alter the image before you paste it into your document.

  3. Crop the Image

    If you would like to crop the image (this process deletes all but the part of the image you want to keep), paste it into an image tool like Microsoft Paint first. Once you have cropped the image, copy the edited image and paste it into the desired document.
