Is there a way to have my trackpad turned off automatically when my bluetooth mouse is connected/turned on?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Unchecking this doesn't do it?

No way!! Just kill chrome via task manager, if you cant then restart but definitely don't click anything on the site
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Usually such "sites" will keep popping up or disable the X, if you can just X it you are lucky

Does anyone know of an easy way to generate a batch of receipts from an excel spreadsheet?

I have a spreadsheet with approx 70 clients' info and a couple of cells with the description of their purchase and amounts paid, and I need to generate receipts. Is there a way that I can create some sort of template and then generate 70 receipts in one shot?

If I can't do it in Excel, is some sort of cheap software that can do this? I'd be willing to spend a bit but I don't want to spend too much as this is a one-time thing and I won't need it on an ongoing basis.

you can use mailmerge in MS word to create a template, and then generate a receipt for each record in your excel file
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
