Microsoft Office

Features Of Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office 365 users have some good news from Box. The CEO of Box, Aaron Levie said that the company is currently testing the services added for Office 365 users in its platform. He made the announcement at the BoxWorks conference last Wednesday. The leader of the Box told that Box is still not available on iPad version of Office 365. However, he said, “there’s one person that can make that happen,” pointing towards the twitter profile of Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft. He asked to “Reach out to him to share your support for getting Box on Office 365 on iPad.”

If you are desktop user, you can now go to the Box application and access Office 365 files from it. It works really simpler. Users may launch the file in Box and then edit it. They can later save it on the Box cloud. The new Box integration will also help users to share the file within the Office program. Box plans to add this integration to the online version of the program in the near future.

Box has been showing steady increase in the number of subscribers since the launch of the service. This shows that people have started to depend more on cloud services for storing their files and accessing them from different locations. According to reports, Box has 27 million active users of the service and it provides assistance to about 240,000 businesses around the world. Another major achievement of Box is that majority of the Fortune 500 companies have availed its service.

A recent study conducted indicates that in developed countries and developing countries, most folks have access to at least three different computing devices; a laptop, a smartphone and a tablet. However, they may not necessary have different accounts for communication applications such as Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail etc on multiple devices. The problem with using a single account, say Skype, Twitter, or Facebook on multiple devices is that you get notifications on all devices simultaneously. Consequently, when you switch from one device to another, you will see all the past messages, chats, notifications, etc. This can be quite annoying at times.

Thankfully, Skype has introduced a brand new tweak to evade this headache. The new tweak will ensure that you get notifications only on the device that you currently use. If you want to receive the notifications on all the devices simultaneously, you can continue to receive so by disabling this tweak.

The Redmond giant said that users of Windows Live Messenger could log into Skype using the same email address they used earlier to login into their Microsoft chat app. In addition, regarding the basic improvements and enhancements that have already been made, the tech giant has plans to add new features in the coming months. Sources privy to Microsoft revealed that the company is designing a slew of updates to be added to Skype. However, it didn’t reveal what sort of updates could be expected.

Working of Skype single notification system

The working of the single notification system in Skype is quite simple. For instance, if you are using Skype on your smartphone at the moment, all the notifications will be sent to the smartphone until you switch to other devices, say tablet or PC. If you don’t access any new device after exiting Skype in the smartphone, all the new notifications will be received in all devices, meaning you don’t miss any critical notifications on any device you have.

Microsoft Support Page

Microsoft Online Support

If you are using Internet Explorer browser on your computer, then it is advisable to upgrade it to the latest version available for your operating system. This is because Microsoft has decided to drop the support for the older versions of Internet Explorer from January 2016. This means, the software giant will have fewer browser versions to take care of. Microsoft has already begun a 17-month long campaign in this regard and this aims to upgrade the Internet Explorer versions running on computers.

According to the Microsoft support page, it is advisable to make the upgrade installation through the Windows Update. When you initiate a Windows update, it searches your computer for all outdated Microsoft programs. Therefore, if you were running an old version of Internet Explorer, it would be replaced with the latest version with the update.

Microsoft says that commercial customers should verify the working of the browser with the configurations and apps running on their machines. This testing will help them to find out the programs and apps that work with the browser and the ones that do not. Once the cut-off date is over, that is, after January 12, 2016, the company would provide support only for the following combinations of operating systems and Internet Explorer versions: Windows 8.1 that has IE 11 installed in it, Windows 7 SP 1 that has IE11 in it and Windows Vista SP with IE9.

Microsoft IE Versions

In case of Windows Servers, Microsoft has said that after the end of support date, the company would support only the following combinations of Servers and browsers: Windows Server 2012 R2 with IE 11, Windows Server 2012 with IE 10, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP 1 with IE 11 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 with IE 9. So, how are the new changes going to benefit the end user? According to the Roger Capriotti, with the new changes, the company would be able to provide better security for the browsers. He comes up with the findings of NSS labs as proof. A study by the lab showed that IE8 was capable of avoiding malicious programs to 69 percent while in the case of IE 11, it was 99 percent.

Besides the security improvements, users will have browsers that are faster than the older versions. So, if you are using Internet Explorer, download the latest version of the program and install it on your PC.
