Got a little tip for ya. Do you ever get into Windows overload? Too many windows open and you need to focus on just the one you're working on? Click on the title bar of the window you want to keep, hold and shake. All other windows will be minimized and out of your way.
Do you just need to get to that icon on your desktop and everything is in the way? No need to minimize each window individually or even use the tip above. Just click the Windows key+D to get to your desktop without leaving your keyboard.
I'm proud to announce that I have re-certified for another 5 years on my CAP-OM designation through IAAP. After taking 3 grueling 2-hour exams for the CAP and then another hefty exam to get the OM certification, certificate holders have 5 years to gather up enough points to re-certify. Fortunately, I was able to accomplish this in just 3 years. This is my second time to renew my certification.
