In our previous post, we explored how we can add users for a Synology NAS device. In this post, we will take stock of how many users we have, add users, or remove them altogether. You may also want to edit permissions for existing users. In all cases, you’ll need to have admin access to your Synology DSM.

Follow these steps to explore along:

  1. Log in to your Synology device, and you will be presented with the DiskStation Manager interface, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click the Control Panel icon, shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.

There are many reasons why you may need to install another language in Microsoft Windows. You may need to use a font in another language or you may have a larger need. Whatever the reasons may be, it’s easy to add another language. We are using Windows 10, but the process should work similarly in other versions of Windows.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Click the Start menu in Windows, or press the Windows key. Doing so will bring up the Start menu, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click on the Settings button, as shown highlighted in red in Figure 1.
  2. Start menu in Windows 10

In this post, we explore troubleshooting a PowerPoint animation problem. We look at what to do when PowerPoint animations stop working, and then, we also explore how you can stop all animations in your presentation with one option.

One of our subscribers just reached out to say, The slides in my PowerPoint are not showing the animations I have set. I double-checked and all animations have been set properly. So why don’t the animations play?

Call it a coincidence, but we recently also heard another question, I have detailed animations set up on my PowerPoint slides, but can I disable the animations without deleting them altogether? I need to preview a bunch of these slides for non-animated stuff, and I have to view all animations which is taking so much time.

If I could disable these animations, I would save 4 minutes each time I play the presentation only with this one slide!

The resolution to both these problems may be the same. To find out more, follow these steps:
