If you’re experiencing trouble with your Office 365 installation or issues with specific Office apps, Microsoft offers two automated tools that may be able to help you troubleshoot and repair your problems.
Windows 10 has a lot of built-in advertising. This isn’t just about the free upgrade offer: Even if you purchase a new PC that comes with a Windows 10 license or spend $200 for a copy of Windows 10 Professional, you’ll see ads in your operating system. You can, however, disable a lot of it.
By default, when you create a new workbook in Excel, the row height and column width is always the same for all cells. However, you can easily change the height and width for one or more rows and columns.
Bookmarks in Word allow you to assign names to text and mark positions in your files so you can more easily navigate long documents. Think of bookmarks in Word like bookmarks you put in books to mark your place.
Your computer’s “clipboard” is where content that you cut or copy is temporarily stored. Microsoft Office has its own clipboard, however, that’s more powerful.
By default, Microsoft Word does not display all the built-in styles on the Home tab or on the Styles pane. So, what if you want to use a style that you don’t see?
You can easily add the current date and time to your Word documents, but what if you only want to add the month or month and year, but no date? It’s easy to manually add a custom date field and we’ll show you how.
Have you ever had a troublesome .doc or .docx file Word that you can’t seem to open? Or even lost a document completely, with all your hard work gone with it?
When you need to do a quick calculation, normally you would think to use the Windows calculator. However, if you’re working in Microsoft Word, you can calculate simple equations typed into your document using Word’s not-so-obvious Calculate command.
If you’ve used Kindle devices or apps for a while, you know how easy it is for old devices to accumulate on your list. Why not make things easier on yourself by clearing out old devices and better organizing the ones you still use?
With Windows 10’s Anniversary Update, Microsoft now offers a dark theme–known as “dark mode”. This option was previously hidden and could only be enabled with a registry hack. Now, it’s a simple toggle.
Did you type a line of text and then realize that it should have been capitalized differently? Instead of typing the line again, you can quickly and easily change the case of any text in Word without retyping it.
A tab leader in Word produces a row of dots, dashes, or underscores between two sets of text, separated with the Tab key. They are useful for creating tabular lists without using tables, as shown in the above image.
When you insert a picture into a document, Word always defaults to the Pictures Library folder for selecting your picture file. However, you can specify a different folder as the default picture location that displays when you insert pictures in Word.
The free Windows 10 upgrade offer is finally over, and Microsoft will stop harassing Windows 7 and 8.1 users with misleading upgrade popups. But Windows 7 and 8.1 aren’t done for. They’re both solid operating systems that Microsoft will be officially supporting for years to come.
Google provides no way to automatically sync contacts between two different Google accounts. Instead, you’ll have to perform a manual two-step process where you export your contacts from one account to a comma-separated values (CSV) file, then import contacts from that file into your second account. Here’s how to get it done.
It is said that every 3.5 seconds a phone is lost or stolen, which is exactly the root of why the mobile data backup field is getting more crowded. Staying ahead of the competition is no picnic, but WinX MediaTrans makes it with ease!
Microsoft OneNote 2016 is a great free note-taking tool, not just for yourself, but also if you want to collaborate on notes and projects with others, such as colleagues or family members. We’ll show you a few different ways you can share your OneNote notebooks.
If you write documents containing a lot of URLs, it can get annoying when the spell check in Word questions almost every one. You can save yourself a bit of time and frustration by telling Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to ignore URLs in your documents when performing a spell check.
OneNote 2016 is a great program for taking, storing, and syncing notes, but if you want to archive your notes or share them with someone who doesn’t have a Microsoft account, you can export them to other file formats. Here is a quick look at how it’s done.
The Mail app in Windows 10 is surprisingly robust, supporting multiple accounts and multiple services like Outlook, Gmail, Exchange, and of course POP3 and IMAP. Assuming you’ve got multiple accounts set up, you can also create a live tile on your Start menu for each account. You can even create separate live tiles for folders you create in the app. Here’s how to do it.
You can easily count paragraphs, as well as pages, words, characters, and lines, in a Word document. However, what if you want to know how many paragraphs of a specific style you have in your document? We’ll show you a trick that allows you to easily get this number.
The best note-taking programs, like Evernote, sync your notes to all your other devices, so you have them wherever you go. If you have some OneNote 2016notes that are stored locally on your computer, you can sync them to your other devices using OneDrive.
Comments in Excel are great for making notes about certain cells so you can keep track of your work. If you’ve added a lot of comments to your worksheets, it can get hard to remember where you put a specific note in a comment.
Finding viruses or malware on your computer is never a pleasant experience, but why does antivirus software quarantine them instead of completely removing them from your computer? Today’s SuperUser Q&A post has the answers to a curious reader’s question.
