As with any technology, you can be overwhelmed when first looking at all the options/settings on a new Apple Watch. There are a few you should change asap to avoid future headaches because of the lack of space or just annoyance.
Any time you install an app on your iPhone, your watch will automatically install its counterpart if there is one. Either in the Watch app on your phone or in the Settings app on the Watch tap General and then slide the switch next to Automatic App Install to the Off position.
If you would actually want to take a screenshot on your watch, it is done by pressing the Digital Crown and side button at the same time. It is easy though to hit these 2 buttons by accident and then your phone is filled with random screenshots. To turn off the ability to take screenshots altogether, open the Settings app on your watch or use the Watch app on your phone and go to General and scroll down until you find Enable Screenshots. Turn it off.
Do you really need a reminder to breathe? Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone then scroll down and tap the Breathe app option. Next, select Notifications off.
Tip of the month
Is this the most used software of 2020? Once the pandemic is over, I am certain it will stay around and service work and family time for quite awhile. Here are a few tips that might improve your sessions:
Mute and unmute with the space bar – When you want to speak, stop scrambling to click the microphone button. You can press and hold the spacebar to quickly mute and unmute your mic, right from your keyboard.
Touch up your appearance – Those high def cameras can really focus on every line and wrinkle on your face! Touch Up My Appearance is a feature you may want to use if this bothers you. Turn it on by clicking the up arrow next to Start Video. Click Video Settings, My Video, and then simply check the box for Touch Up My Appearance.
Share your screen – Share your screen for a Zoom meeting with other participants by clicking the Share screen icon on the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting screen. You’ll have the option to share your entire desktop, or just one of the windows you have open. Click the red Stop Share button at the top of the screen to go back to being a normal participant in the meeting.
