Here's a great question that we used to get all the time, but still applies if you're making the switch from an older version of Microsoft Office, such as 2003, to 2010 or newer. Many people have a hard time getting used to the new ribbon bars. Here's an solution that may help!
Greg, I found a site that sells a download that makes it possible to use the classic MS Office menus. Do you see any risk or downside to using this? While I’m slowly getting used to the new version, I still like the old version better.
Great question Neil! Here's what I recommend. UbitMenu is free for personal use or $10 commercial and should do exactly what you're looking for. Give that a try and let me know what you think. Here's a link to a full review at PCWorld: http://www.pcworld.com/article/231996/ubitmenu.html
Printing from a phone is a feature most people wish they had and now they can. To get started all you need is a GMail account, which is standard with more android devices. If you don’t have one creating a Google email is very simple. In order to print you need to set this up on a PC or Laptop that has access to the printer you wish to print from, whether it is wireless or USB does not matter. On the PC you will be using, you will need to install Google Chrome. To set this up go to www.google.com/chrome. Google has easy to follow instructions to complete this process. Using Google Chrome as your web browser, follow these steps:
1. Go to http://www.google.com/landing/cloudprint/
2. Choose between Classic and Google Print Ready Printers (If you are not sure if your printer is a Google Ready Printer click on that choice and it will give you a list of options. If your printer is not one of them it is safe to say that you have a Classic Printer so go back and choose that option).
3. Whether you have a Classic or Google Ready printer both options will walk you through steps on how to set them up. Follow those steps precisely.
4. Now, you need your android device. Go to the Google Play Store and search for the app titled Google Cloud Print. Download and install this app.
5. After the app has finished installing, it will guide you through set up. You will have the options to choose which Gmail account you want to link it too and which printer you will want to set as your default.
6. Once setup is complete you are given the option to print a Test Page. If all has been correctly setup then it will print on your designated printer.
You have many other customizable options with Google Cloud Print. So play around with the app so you can have a good sense of what is going on. You also have many options to print from, you can print documents, excel spreadsheets and even pictures from your android device. If you have questions or need more assistance you can call the store or check out the additional links which provide more detailed instructions and interactive videos.
Threats surround your computer all the time, even when you're not using it. Infections can quietly crawl into your computer while browsing the web, reading e-mails, or playing games. Antivirus is a great start, but can't protect you from all threats. And while it is useful in preventing viruses from getting on your PC, it often can't clean them once an infection has started. If you start getting popups or system messages indicating threats are found - then it's time to bring in your PC. The longer you wait, the more likely personal data will be lost, stolen, or damaged!
Whether for an employee or for yourself, choosing between a laptop or tablet isn't always a clear decision. We have put together this document to assist balancing your modern work and personal life by comparing the most common uses for tablets as compared to laptops. Let me know which is right for you!
