Windows 10

Show Bluetooth icon in the notification area

I just bought some awesome iPod Pro Headphones and I paired them with both my laptop and desktop computers.

They’re both running Windows 10 and on the desktop there’s a convenient Bluetooth icon in the Windows Taskbar. With it I can quickly connect a device or disconnect one.

I needed the icon to show up on my laptop and here are the steps to make that happen!

  1. Open Settings: Click Start
  2. Settings
  3. Devices
  4. On the right side of the menu Bluetooth & other devices page you’ll see links to Related Settings, click More Bluetooth options. You’ll see this dialog box.
  5. Check the “Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area box.
  6. Done!
Bluetooth Settings Dialog Windows 10
Click Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area.

Let me know if that worked for you!


WordPress Changes: Why Won’t My CSS Changes Show Up!

One of the worst and most aggravating problems you can run into while working with WordPress is making a change to a stylesheet and nothing happens.

The first culprit you’ll want to search for is caching.

Caching in WordPress is great for performance and developing a WordPress website that visitors will love. However with speed comes responsibility!

If a caching plugin like W3tc isn’t the problem then you’ll need to look at your web host or Cloudflare.

Cloud Flare is an awesome CDN, DNS, DDoS protection and security service. Cloudflare is unique in that it sits in between your webhost and Cloudflare. It acts as a reverse proxy protecting your website and hosting files on their fast CDNs. I love this service for larger websites with lots of traffic!

But… when a client has Cloudflare enabled you’ll need to put it in Development Mode so you can see your changes by temporarily disabling caching.
