I have an OnePlus 5 running the latest Android 7, stock (not rooted). How on earth do I set Sunday as the first day of the week such that Google Calendar, Inbox and Keep all use Sunday as the start of the week.

Thanks in advance.

HI all,

I need a little help with some Excel fuzzy matching.

I have a simple sheet:

Screen Grab
Col A = Text
Col B = Number
Col C = Formula that combines A & B
Col D = Condition (and the crux of this question).

So for column D, I'd like a formula that checks every value in Column C, the return "Yes" if there is a match to the 10th (last two digits), and "No" if there isn't a match.

So for example, this would be a "Yes":

AAA      1,000.11      AAA1000.11      
AAA      1,000.12      AAA1000.12      

And this would be a "No"

AAA      1,000.11      AAA1000.11
AAA      1,000.25      AAA1000.25

Thanks in advance.

Please provide me with the exact steps on how to setup a Google calendar within Windows Outlook 2016.
I have 4 video on my YouTube Channel, and can see them listed on my iPhone7 and my Desktop when I click the "YouTube" icon on my website. My unique URL is the href for that anchor tag.

But it fails when I follow these steps from a Tablet (Note 4, running Kit Kat). It brings me to my Channel, but does not list any videos.

Is there a privacy issue blocking them?

When I load the browser and go to YouTube.com, then search for my channel, it works fine.

Any idea where the location of wechat document is stored in Android ?

To sync both directions is iCloud good ?

Customer has 2000 contacts there in iCloud and wondering is sync both directions possible from this modern galaxy ?

Is it easy to config ?


I have moved from windows 10 mobile to a Huawei p10 lite. We use office 365 business premium for email, calendar and contacts. I have installed outlook for android and it syncs up ok but even though all my contacts are in People they dont haveall the contact pictures. In fact no contact has their profile picture.

Any ideas on how to fix that would be great. As I use outlook contacts as my defacto contact list.

Hi all,

I have a fairly simple spreadsheet, but what I'm asking for may not be routine. Link and description here:


I'm trying to have formulas (or code) root out and mark scheduling conflicts. Right now, I'm using a very long formula that seems a little unrefined. I'd like to find a better approach if it's simple.

Thanks in advance.
My problem is with an app that has been written for me, running on a Samsung Tab A, where I cannot get the soft keyboard to pop up anywhere in the app.  A bluetooth barcode scanner is paired, and I also have the Android setting turned on that says "Show on-screen keyboard".   And if I go into the "Memo" app that came with the tablet--similar to WordPad--I can scan barcodes into it, or I can touch the screen and the soft keyboard pops up.  Same with Chrome...if I touch the bar where you key in the URL, it pops up the keyboard like it's supposed to--and I suppose I could scan data into that same line.

But in this app written for me, I can scan in data with no problem, but I can't get the soft keyboard to pop up.   The developer  blames it all on me, insisting there is nothing he can do.  He keeps saying that there is nothing in his code that would suppress the soft keyboard.  But he won't tell me whether there is anything that will "activate" the keyboard.

I'm not at all familiar with this C# code written for a Xamarin environment.  But one thing I'm wondering is this: On an Android device, if you touch a textbox, is the soft keyboard supposed to pop up by default--or do you have to include code to tell it to do so?  I'm wondering if maybe he is missing some code that will tell the program to pop up the keyboard.

I do understand that the Settings need to be set up right, as outlined above, but they are--as evidenced by programs such as Chrome and that Memo app allowing…
HI all,

I have a simple sheet that contains three columns: Date / Home Team / Away Team


I'd like the create another tab that tallies up just the games that the Dodgers are involved in, regardless of Home or Away.

What's the best way to do this? Thanks in advance.
I can not find, for the life of me, how to get Thunderbird to update my GMail password. I needed to change the password, and GMail blocks me from using an old password, so I can not solve the problem by going back to the ld one.

I can not get it to update properly.

I am sometimes presented with a GMail login window where the "Next" button does nothing, even tough I enter the correct email address.

So, how do I explicitly set the password for an existing email account on Thunderbird?

I've been recruited (free volunteer) to setup and configure 20 Chromebooks for a small private school.  They purchased 20 new Chromebooks, the school has a G-Suite for education account and they purchased 20 Chromebook management licenses to go with the Chromebooks.
Although I'm familiar with Windows active directory and group policies, this is the first time I've used this Chrome management service.  Here is my big question...
Why should I recommend to the school Admin that the kids should login with a google account associated with the schools domain versus the kids logging in with a personal g-mail account?
Are all policies available at the device level or are there more policies available at the user level?    It seems like there are more options if you have everyone log in with the school's domain and then apply policies to users or OU's rather then being restricted to device policies due to the students logging in with personal g-mail addresses.
For some reason, I'm unclear on as to why at this point, the schools administrator is reluctant to give the students email addresses at the schools domain.  I'm thinking I should persuade the school admin that the students should indeed be given a school domain email and insist they log in using only that email.  Am I correct in my thinking and if so why?
Thank you!
Hi all,

I have a Google Sheet with multiple tabs that contain the same simple data. Each tab contains the following columns:

Name / Date / Event

I'd like to built a pivot table that summarizes all the data, but I *think* i have to build a MASTER tab first that consolidates all the tab data? How do I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance.
Stupid question, please see attached.  When measuring the actual shortest distance between SFO to Amsterdam is shows 5,425mi.  The airplane route shows longer 10k+ miles.   Why wouldn't the flight goes the shortest distance?  Or is it how the distance vs measurement shows on the map just for user's simplicity?

Assigning comments to people in Google Docs
Subject of the week | What software update developed in the past year were you the most excited about?
A favorite update of mine was in Google Docs last fall. They added the ability to "assign" a comment to someone that you mention in the comment. I've found it very handy when using docs for meeting notes that have to-do items. Also great when there's a document that several people need to contribute to. Assign each section to the appropriate person and they can mark as resolved when they're finished with their update.

See above. My Outlook calendar - on my Android phone - using the 3 day view shows up as 8/24 instead of 24/8....I had changed the settings in the Office 365 admin to show up as dd/mm but doesn't seem to transfer across.....

How can I have my ringer automatically turn on in the morning (I usually shut it off during the night)?
Problem to turn On HotSpot on Android 6+
It works on Android 4.4-5 but restricted on V6+.

Anybody having experience working with HotSpot on Android V6-7?

     * Turn On or Off wifi
     * @param context
     * @param isTurnToOn
    public static void turnOnOffWifi(Context context, boolean isTurnToOn) {
        WifiManager wifiManager = (WifiManager) context

        if (isTurnToOn && isHotspotSupported() && isHotspotOn(context)) {
            turnOnOffHotspot(context, false);

            writeLog(context, "turn on WIFI");
            writeLog(context, "turn off WIFI");

Open in new window

We followed this tuto: http://omtlab.com/android-enable-disable-hotspot-programmatically/ made in 2014.

I do not get any error message. It just won't open the Hotspot.  Closing Wifi works however. (We close Wifi before we enable the HotSpot)
Within the Gmail email admin center is there a way of displaying all email aliases?

Or do I need to open each and every email address within the Gmail admin center to see if it has an alias?

Got a Samsung S8 and Lync (previous version of Skype for Business) goes offline after some time.
Probably it is related to power safe options but don't find it.

Please advise.
How do prevent/stop Dropbox (Google?) from displaying pop up about Authorization with 1Password. I cannot enter more couple of keystrokes on iPad Pro [iOS 10] with notification from Dropbox.

I most definitely do not want to use or be bothered by Dropbox. I want to disable/delete this app.
A company I am working for is currently using Outlook 2016 to send and receive emails through their Gmail email service. All users currently have thousands of email auto complete entries within their Outlook profiles.

These auto complete entries are important since when the users type the first few characters of someone's email address or name the correct email address will appear as an auto complete entry within Outlook (see the screenshot).

Next week I will be switching them over to using Office 365 and will be creating new Outlook profiles for each and every user that will be communicating with the Office 365 server instead of with the Gmail servers.

We don't want for the users to have to regenerate their email address auto complete entries once again.

What can be done to preserver or to regenerate the Outlook user's email auto complete entries so that when the users type the first few characters of an email address or name the email address will be suggested within the email auto complete entry?

I will be willing to purchase a commercial utility to either migrate these email auto complete entries or to regenerate them based upon previously sent and received emails from the current to the new Outlook 2016 email profiles if necessary.
