Tech Time PDF Tue, 28 Feb 2017 16:45:36 +0000 Tech Time PDF Tech Time PDF KTVX ABC 4 Salt Lake City i am is he excited. i just barely figured out what it is we're actually talking about for tech time tuesday and if is so genius. so christopher is here. an we're talking about, so many people do shopping online and they will get a confirmation and a receipt onion line. emailed or whatever as opposed to having the physical receipt. and now that i'm learning how to be an adult, for tax purposes, it is so important to know how to get those and save them. >> yeah, so not only receipts but news articles that you like, and you want to save or keep, recipes, you can actually go to the recipe today, get the chicken recipe. and instead of just linking the website because that may change, in a couple of years you may try and click on that link, you can actually save that document. but the way we refer to it is print through pdf. pdf is an electronic file and a standard file that you take to anywhere. you can take it to fedex kinko, anywhere and print it. or you can print it from home. but it's a file that you actually save and manage on your computer. >> when you say print to pdf, are you not actually printing it though. >> yeah. >> this is where it is genius. >> are you not actually printing it. >> wait until he shows you. let's see here. so this, let me let's go over here. but this is a receipt of mine that i bought some stuff, some camera stuff. now if i go to print, and i'm just going to do the short cut there, on a mac you have a section in the bottom left-hand corner that says pdf. >> okay with so i will move my arrow down there. if you go save as pdf. >> okay. >> now it's actually going to know that you want to save that document and it is actually where do you want to save it. >> no way. >> you can save if to your document folder or wherever you want. just have a place you can save these things to. >> but you can only get to that through printing. >> yes. >> through printing. >> so there is. >> you cannot save. the difference between save is if you said, if you went to file save, it would actually save the whole page. so you are getting and on the internet side you're getting advertisements, you're getting all the garbage around it. but every receipt has a print this receipt or print the page. if you click on that it will get you to a nice clean saveable page that you can actually save. now on a pc it's a little different. on a pc you don't just say pdf, save to pdf. you go to change the principler to the pdf printer. >> got it. >> so it's the same concept. >> you still get to it through print. >> you still get to it you go to print and you change your printer to the pdf printer and that will save it it as a digital file. then you can attach it it as an email and send it it to people, you can save it. >> what? >> you can do all of that. >> why am i just learning this right now. like where have you been. you've been here. >> i've been here. technology, there is a lot the of it. it it takes time. >> it is these little tips and tricks that meak our life so much easier. but had i only known. >> that is what i am trying to do. every time i come on the show i'm trying to give you tips and tricks to actually make your life a little easier and not only that but utilize the technology that i out there. because you know, any given person would probably using a third of what we could use. >> i know. >> even if you don't know it. >> let me ask you this. you know how you can use your bluetooth and print stuff off your phone, can you do that same function through your phone. >> the pdf. >> yeah. >> no. >> the yeah i do it if i do something on my phone is i take a screen shot and the screen shot turns it into a picture which is then printable. it's not as good as a pdf though because i pdf is resizable. you can do a lot more with a pdf, also if you take that to a third party to print, it is a lot easier to print. so when you purchase things online, i actually recommend doing that on a computer because you have more options. however, you can could purchase on-- do it on your phone, go to the account page on your computer and print it there. >> then you can go and save it and then you can be like business receipt. >> exactly. >> and you can even break that up into like subcategories. >> yes. >> you know what you need to do, we need to have, i didn't know this but finder on our macbook is the most important thing to understand. and chris came to my home and helped me organize everything through finder and now my life is so much easier. i'm not as good at it as you are but that-- finder. the importance of finder. thank you. >> absolutely. >> thanks for making our life more effective, assistant, all of the good stuff. >> all right, we're going to toss it over to the newsroom
