Microsoft's free Snipping Tool for various kinds of screen captures. I love the new Delay feature (Windows 10) because I can capture drop-down boxes. I just recorded this how-to video on how to find it on your computer and how to use it. #TechTuesday

Derek, This is excellent. What you've said here is exactly what I encourage my clients to do: analyze that mess in the Inbox. For people who use Outlook, you can save those repetitive answers in a feature called AutoText (part of the Quick Parts command).

Great job! I didn't know about the dragging from Explore and linking! Side Note is cool too. I went to your channel and was hoping to see some more videos on OneNote. Love your humor...need to start adding that to my videos.

Personal productivity expert, international conference speaker and trainer, coach, award-winning blogger, and author of books on time management, Outlook, PowerPoint, YouTube Channel, Word tips, and DIY SEO.

PEGGY DUNCAN, Personal Productivity Expert and Computer Trainer. Traveling internationally from Atlanta, GA USA.

Feel free to contact me today about productivity and technology training at your place or mine and any media opportunities.

I'm a personal productivity expert and computer trainer helping busy people work smarter. I was formally trained at IBM and was recognized by the chairman for streamlining processes that saved the company close to a million dollars a year.

In November 2013, I revamped a Website with video tutorials that are task-based. The Digital Breakthroughs Institute is virtual, and we also offer live seminars, workshops, Webinars, and small conferences. 

Our training model is to focus on specific tasks and projects as opposed to general training. For example, the Outlook tutorial teaches you how to answer emails faster. A Word tutorial will teach you how to build forms. A PowerPoint tutorial will teach you how to create postcards and other marketing collateral. Those are just some of our ideas. We’re always looking for new ideas from you.

The online video tutorials are available 24/7/365, and are designed to increase your productivity so you have more time to do other things, including thinking!

A one-time payment will give you lifetime access to a course. This way, if you forget how to do something or the technology changes, you’ll be able to come back and brush up on everything.

PUBLIC TRAINING (click here for schedule)
I'm also conducting training that's open to the public: workshops, seminars, and Webinars.

I'm also a personal productivity coach and consultant for individuals and small teams who want to develop faster, smarter ways to get things done. I combine my skills as a professional organizer, project manager, and computer trainer to you examine every aspect of how you work and streamline it with technology you probably already use.

I'm an award-winning technology blogger (, and the author of several books (Conquer Email Overload with Outlook 2007; The Time Management Memory Jogger™; and Just Show Me Which Button to Click! in PowerPoint 2007).

Booklets include How to Create, Build, and Manage a YouTube Channel Made Easy; Shameless Self-Promotion: Do-It-Yourself SEO; Computer Magic in Word 2007-2010; and Up to Speed on Your BlackBerry. 

Visit me on YouTube, Digital BreakThroughs. I post computer demos and product reviews, and everything is related to working smarter or marketing your small business. I use Camtasia and Sony Vegas to edit videos, and all graphics are created in PowerPoint.

I have experience interviewing on various media platforms: radio, television, Web, and satellite. I've appeared on NPR, CNN, the TODAY show, Black Enterprise Business Report, and the US Virgin Islands PBS affiliate. My expertise has been cited in Fortune Small Business, O-The Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, Essence, Fitness, Self, SUCCESS, Black Enterprise, Men's Health, Entrepreneur, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and many more.

If you're looking for a credible spokesperson who specializes in improving productivity with technology, I look forward to connecting with you. I've represented Qwest Communications and AT&T.

I received a BBA in marketing and a train the trainer certification from Georgia State University in Atlanta. I'm a life-long learner and spend time learning technology well enough to be able to explain it to you in plain English.

Bragging rights
At IBM, I streamlined processes that saved the company close to a million dollars a year. I was awarded a percentage of the savings. I'm also a 2012 Small Business Influencer Champion.

Love the location, customer service, cleanliness, etc. And I'm delighted that pets are not allowed. BUT, the vanity area is not private. This is a major turnoff for me when I'm not alone in the room.
