Word starting to wobble? Excel eating itself? PowerPoint playing up? If you’re having trouble with your Office apps, then launch them in a special stripped-down Safe Mode. Like Windows Safe Mode, it loads the software in its most basic configuration, enabling you to troubleshoot issues and hopefully identify what’s…
Here’s a neat new Chromecast feature: Google Slides now works with Google’s little dongle, meaning you can cast presentations wirelessly from your mobile device or the desktop. Beats lugging a 30-foot HDMI cable around with you.
Do you like using work and productivity apps on your mobile device? Yeah, me neither, but Microsoft wants to change our minds with its new—free—apps for iPhone and for Android tablets.
At some point in your life, you've used PowerPoint. Whether for a class project or a meeting of some sort, you've click and dragged text boxes, dropped in photos, and awkwardly presented a slideshow. Now imagine doing that on a phone or tablet. Nightmare! Microsoft thinks its new app, Sway, can help make it less so.
After Office for iOS proved itself a pretty big disappointment to anyone who was hoping to actually do things with the app, the long-anticipated Office for iPad has finally hit the App Store. It's ok; you can let out a sigh of relief. This time, Microsoft got it right.
Watch Bill Gates giving a simple explanation on how foreign aid has made the world a much better place for everyone. And yes, apparently Bill Gates hates PowerPoint just like the rest of humanity.
Microsoft’s Office Web Apps—Word, PowerPoint, and Excel—are finally being blessed with real-time collaborative editing today. Took long enough.
After countless months of "will they" or "won't they," Microsoft has finally conceded to give iOS users their very own version of Office in app form. Most iOS users, that is. Assuming they want it in the first place, which is no safe assumption given its many, many limitations.
There are plenty of reasons to be discomforted by the recent NSA PRISM scandal, chief among them the total obliteration of any remaining notion of privacy we might have had. But there's another (less pressing, yes, but still confidence-shattering) concern that has echoed around our internet's hallowed halls this past…
You're never going to love Office, because it's Office—it's the thing you use to make money and do things you actually enjoy. But that doesn't mean it can't be (relatively) painless, affordable, and smart. Starting today, it is.
Office—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, the old frenemies—are out of beta and ready to buy. Sort of: you buy the newest version of Office like you buy Netflix or Spotify, with a subscription. And it makes a hell of a lot of sense.
Does anyone really want to use Microsoft Office? Of course not. It's a work tool. It's a utility. But does it have to be so utilitarian? So bleak? No—not anymore. The new Office is the best Office.
They're called "trade secrets" for a reason. And if the competition gets their hands on your company's IP because you drunkenly left it in a bar, you'll need stringent security to keep them from peeping—like the Victorinox Presentation Master's 256-bit AES encryption. It's a Swiss Army Knife on loan from MI6.
Iran-Contra. The Bay of Pigs. The Battle of Mogadishu. All of these failures and black eyes upon American military history—none of them compare to this monstrosity, this abomination. This war crime. A briefing composed entirely in Comic Sans.
Officially, Dave Karle is an executive communications manager at Microsoft. Less officially, his colleagues have given him another name: the Pied Piper of PowerPoint. His audience? The U.S. Army.
It often seems like every PowerPoint slide is the worst, but here lies what projector company InFocus deems history's most heinous. I'm inclined to agree. It's almost brilliant in its horror. Diabolical. The arrows. The colors. This is Satan's face.
From what we've heard Office for Mac 2011 is actually pretty good! If you want to decide for yourself, today's your chance to pick up a copy of the software suite that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and, for the first time, Outlook. It'll run you up to $150 for a single Home and Student license, and up to $280 for a…
Office for Mac has long been the ugly stepsister that Redmond (and Mac users) pretended didn't exist. Is the latest Office the same deal? No, says Macworld. They say Office for Mac 2011 is actually good.
