How To Remember All Of The Keyboard Shortcuts On Your Macbook

Keyboard shortcuts aren’t something I’ve ever had to struggle with too much. I was born into a house with a computer in it, and my writing is much, much prettier when typed than it is when hand-written (I’m not sure I should even call what I can do with a pen “writing”). Hitting command+V or control+left feels just as natural to me as driving does, and I thought everyone was like that, but after I’d had the experience of watching other people use their computers, and other people watching me use my computer, I learned that not everyone is like that! In fact, most people type below 100wpm and in fact many of them move the mouse up to the menu bar, to click on “Edit”, and then “Copy”. If you’re one of these people, well, I’m sorry. I’m sorry you didn’t know about this app sooner. Hopefully you’ll be well soon.

How to Watch a Movie Together Online for Free Using Amazon Prime Watch Party

Here’s how to watch a movie together apart, as it were. In other words, how to watch a movie together online using the Amazon Watch Party feature. The Amazon movie watching party feature not only lets you watch movies together long distance, but also has a built-in chat feature! The best part of Amazon watch parties is that if you both have Amazon Prime then it’s free (unless you pick a movie that has a rental fee attached, then you each pay the rental fee through your own Amazon Prime account). But as with so many other things Amazon, the concept is cool, and it actually works well, but the directions for how to do it are lacking at best, confusing at worst. Plus there are things you need to know to keep you from being frustrated. So here’s what you need to know!

How to Reduce Spam Email: Remove Your Personal Information from the Internet at Places Like Crunchbase, Zoominfo, & Apollo.io

The best spam email blocker is not getting spammed in the first place. Here’s how to prevent spam email (or at least reduce the amount of spam you are getting) by removing your personal information from the Internet. You may already know this, but here in the United States, where the privacy laws are so lax, it’s perfectly legal for a company to scrape all of your contact information and then sell access to it. ZoomInfo, Spokeo, Crunchbase, Apollo.io, and RocketReach all do this, as do many others. And removing your data from those databases can help to reduce the amount of spam email that you receive. We’re going to tell you how to remove yourself from these top 5 sites, and then we’re going to tell you about a service that will remove you from all the sites (more than 500 of them), if you want to go in that direction.

How to Find the Email Address of a Buyer or Payer on Paypal

Every once in a while you may want to find a buyer’s email address on Paypal because for some reason the email notification you get from Paypal doesn’t have it. This is true, for example, when somebody uses your paypal.me link. Unlike nearly all other, if not all other, payment notifications which you get from Paypal, when somebody sends you money through your paypal.me link, the notification doesn’t include the payor’s email address. Now, of course, you can log into Paypal, go to “all transactions”, and search for the transaction, but that takes a whole bunch of steps, and is a hassle if you have to do it more than occasionally. Plus you can’t search for it by email address, because hey, if you had that you wouldn’t need to be searching! Here’s how to go directly to that transaction’s page and avoid a few steps.
