This video will show you how to Add Bookmarks in IOS 8.
I always cringe a bit when I see people that use their iOS device everyday. But still have the same old default Apple, Bing, Google and Yahoo Bookmarks icons in their Safari browser. This also goes for any Mac running OS X Yosemite as the home page on these Mac’s now defaults to a bookmarks screen bringing them inline with their iOS devices.
I really don’t like this page as I feel its locking people in. However its here to stay so we may as well work with it.
So the steps to add a Bookmark in iOS is pretty straight forward, all you need to do is go the website you want to add. For the example in the video I used the www.123myit.com website. Once you have browsed to your website. Press the up arrow icon in the middle of the page at the bottom.
Once this is done you will see a menu which contains the Add Bookmark, Add to Reading List, Add to Home Screen, Add to Shared Links buttons, press the Add Bookmark button and this will take you to the next screen.
The next screen will have the Bookmark that you want to save, at this stage you can change the heading of the Book mark if you wish. In the video I have removed the “Your complete IT help portal” from the 123myit.com Bookmark. Once you have adjusted the heading simply press save.
Once saved the Bookmark will show up every time you start a new Safari browser session.

This video will show you how to add Emoticons to your iPhone. A friend of my asked me recently how to add Emoticons to her iPhone. Well I didn’t know off the topof my head so I thought I would do a video on it.
As it turns out this feature doesn’t work for iPhone 3G, but does work for iPhone 3GS and upwards. For the iPhone 3G I suggest you see if you can find an App on the App Store.
Step 1. Go into Settings > General > Keyboard.
Step 2.In the Keyboards menu, tap Keyboards and then Add New Keyboard scroll down to Emoji. Add the Emoji Keyboard to your Keyboards list.
Step 3. When you go to send a Message you should now have a Emoticons world icon. See the Red square in the picture below.
Step 4. For 3G or older models you can try getting a free Emjoi App from the App Store.

This video will show you how to add a Windows 8 Start Menu.
One of the things that annoys people about Windows 8 is the missing Desktop’s Start menu. Microsoft tried very hard to remove the Start menu but fell short as you can use free or paid add-on programs to get the Start menu back.
If your cheap like me and don’t want to spend the money to get an app to put the Start menu back then you can add a Start menu on the taskbar by doing the following steps.
Step 1. Right click the Desktop. Step 2. Go to New then Folder. Step 3. Paste the following string.
You need to replace username with the name of the user you are logged in as.
Paste the url above into the Folder bar and you are good to go.
You should then see the new menu bar in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
To remove the Start menu you can just right-click and select Toolbars, then untick the Start Menu Toolbar.
When you right click the taskbar and go into Toolbars you will see a whole heap of other pre-built toolbars which you can add to the taskbar.
Here is a list and description of what each one does:
Address: This adds a box on your Taskbar, which allows you to type URLs. Simply type a URL, press Enter and you will go to that website. Links: This shows your Explorer favorites on the Taskbar. Touch Keyboard: This shows a keyboard icon on the Taskbar. When you Click on it, it will display an onscreen keyboard. Desktop: The Desktop toolbar displays every icon on your Desktop. It even displays items such as Homegroup.
