Jumping in to start the new year.
Getting back into the swing of things after the holiday season and thought I would share a few quick productivity tips about using Stream Deck. Three tips including steps on how to backup your Stream Deck are below. The video includes some bonus tips at the end. I also created a blog and video when I unboxed my Streamdeck showing you how to set it up. You can view/watch it HERE
3 Productivity Tips:
1. Backup Your Stream Deck
It takes a bit of work to set up your Stream Deck so be sure that you back up the information and files. You will be adding icons, music, shortcut links and more, so be sure to keep all of your files in a safe place so you can retrieve them just in case you need them in future. The following screenshots (pictures below) show you the steps:
- Create your pages or profiles and hotkeys
- Click the down arrow beside the profiles menu
- Click Edit Profiles
- Then in this profiles tab, there is an arrow at the bottom left
- Here you will see the ‘Backup All’ option
- Create Backup
- It’s also a good idea to save your backup on an external drive
[If you ever have computer issues and loose everything, you will then have to re-setup your Stream Deck as well, unless you have a saved backup.]
2. Create your icons in Canva
I am sure by now you know that I am a huge fan of Canva and use it to create all of my graphics, YouTube thumbnails, tips checklists, resources and more. It’s helpful to be able to quickly recognize the Stream Deck button with an added visual. I created the icons that I use on my Streamdeck in Canva. You can learn more about creating and downloading in Canva HERE
3. Don’t move the folder
Be sure to keep the folder and files where you first put them as it will break the links if you move them. I keep mine in a folder named Stream Deck on my desktop so that I have easy access to everything in one place. (This is not the same backup folder with the steps above.)
My YouTube video also includes some bonus tips at the end of the video.
