  • Excel filters: How to use number, text and date filters to extract only the data you need
    by JD Sartain on March 13, 2018 at 10:30 am

    Excel spreadsheet databases work because users can filter the data inside these workbooks. Filters are conditions you specify in databases and spreadsheets to extract only the precise, requested information. For example, in a Human Resources spreadsheet database, the IT director may want to hire a candidate with a degree in Computer Science plus experience using HTML, Java, and C++ languages. The IT director uses filters based on logical operators to extract all the candidates with these credentials: equal to (Equals) degrees in "Computer Science" plus computer languages equal to (Equals) "HTML, Java, and C++." She may add more conditions, such as candidates equal to (Equals) "CS Software Developer," but not equal to (Does Not Equal) "CS Hardware Engineer," to minimize the list.

  • How to set up a VPN in Windows

  • How to create an insane multiple monitor setup with three, four, or more displays
    by Sarah Jacobsson Purewal on February 21, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    By now, a dual-monitor setup has become commonplace. Multitasking on a single screen is just way too confining. But why stop at two displays?  I can speak from experience: Having multiple monitors (and I’m talking three, four, five, or even six) is just…awesome, and something you totally need in your life.Right now, my main PC has a triple-monitor setup: my main 27-inch central monitor, with a 24-inch monitor on either side. I use my extra monitors for a number of things, such as comparing spreadsheets side-by-side, writing articles while also doing research, keeping tabs on my social media feeds, and, of course, watching Netflix.To read this article in full, please click her […]
