Move Google Calendar to new Google Account

Over the past few weeks I have been setting up a new Google account to be used as my central hub for everything Google in my life. My old Google account was fine, it's just that I wanted a more professional user name and a username that more reflected my website. So I opened a new Google account and started investigating ways to transfer my contacts, my Picasa Web Albums and Google calendar over to the new account.

A few days ago I wrote a tutorial on how to transfer a Picasa Web Album account to a new Google account, and today I am going to show you how to move a calendar over to a new Google account.

Here is how to move a Google Calendar from one account to another:

1.) Sign into your old Google Calendar using your old Google account

2.) Click on the "Settings" tab.


3.) Under the "Settings" tab select the "Calendars" tab.


4.) Choose the calendar you wish to share, and select the "Share this calendar" link under the "Sharing" heading.

5.) Move down to the "Share with specific people" section and enter the email address of your new Google account. Under the "Permission settings" select "Make changes AND manage sharing" if you want your new Google account to have full administration privilages for this calendar, otherwise choose one of the more restrictive choices. Click "Save" to save your changes.


6.) Logout of your old Google account and login to your new Google account.

7.) If you wish to keep administration access for the calendar with the old account then you are done. Just go to the calendar section of your new Google account and the calendar will have automatically loaded in. If you wish to delete the old Google account from this calendar then you will have to go into your calendar settings in your new Google account, select the Calendars tab and then select the "Shared: Edit Settings" for the new calendar that you just transfered from the old account.


8.) Move down to the "Share with specific people"  section and click on the trash can next to your old Google account. That's it, you have now fully transfered your Google calendar to your new Google account.

Add Speed Dial Button to Opera Toolbar

One of the best features of Opera is the speed dial page.  Unfortunately you can not set the speed dial page as your homepage, but you can set the speed dial to open when you start up the Opera browser or when you open a new tab. However, sometimes you may want to open the speed dial page from an existing tab without having to open a new one. You can easily accomplish this by adding a custom button to Opera's toolbar.

To add a custom speed dial to Opera's toolbar, do the following:

1.) Navigate your browser to the Drag'n'drop buttons for Opera webpage.

2.) Scroll down to the example section of the webpage where you will see two choices for a speed dial button. Either button will work, so the choice is yours.




3.) Click and drag one of the speed dial buttons to the Opera toolbar, click "ok" and you're done.

Prevent Windows 8 Upgrade from Asking for Activation after Installation

Recently I finished upgrading a PC from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. I had downloaded an upgrade of Windows 8 Pro using Microsoft's Windows 8 upgrade offer that gives current Windows users the ability to purchase an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $39.99 until January 31st 2012. I had also bought a new SSD hard drive for the same computer and I thought I could just do a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on to the new SSD using the upgrade disc.

I installed the new SSD drive and put in the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade disc. The upgrade instructions asked for a product key which I entered, after which Windows 8 installed and I was able to boot into Windows 8 Pro. All was well until shortly afterwards when Windows 8 Pro  said to enter a product key again in order to be able to personalize Windows. I tried entering the same product key that I had entered when I installed Windows 8 Pro but Windows 8 Pro said the product key was not valid. After several tries making sure their was not any typos I rea…
