This video will show you how to Microsoft Office 2016 on your Mac for Free! There are two ways.
After going over the Microsoft website quite a fare bit when Windows 10 had been released, I noticed that Microsoft is offering a trial version of Office 365 along with Office 365 free. I thought this would be great to update the 123myIT users and help them get their hands on a copy of Office 365 free.
You can find the links to the Microsoft website under the Downloads section at the top of this page or click the link here.
Or read on and I will explain the link below.
For a Microsoft Office 365, 1 month FREE trial. Click the link below.
Office 365 Trial
For Students or Teachers click the link below to find out if you’re eligible.
Office 365 Education
The first link above is the Trial version of Office 365, which is a one month trial to the subscription of Office 365. So if you wanted to try a copy of Office to see what it is link then you can use that link.
The second link is a link to the Education version of Office which is totally FREE for students and teachers as long as they have a education email address. Click the link and enter your school email address and then it will send a verification email to your school email.
Simply log into your school email account and click the verification email. This will then start the Office 365 download which will allow you to start using Office 365 free. So I hope this helps all you students and teachers out. If I does help out please help me out and share the video around so that others may also take advantage of the great offer that Microsoft is currently putting forward.
This video will show you how to turn off work offline mode in Microsoft Outlook 2010 2013.
Microsoft Outlook, what a great email client. But with all its features and functions some of them can be down right annoying!!!
Yes, we all know what I am talking about the dreaded Work Offline message. Well first of all lets talk about what is Work Offline and what does it do?
Work Offline, is a feature within Microsoft Outlook that allows you to continue working and writing emails even if your connection has dropped out. Now when I say connect I mean this could be your LAN connection or your internet connection if you are using a internet service. Or if you work on Wifi it could be you have walked into an area with limited signal and your connection has dropped out. When this happens Outlook will start using a local copy of your email which is stored in an Offline Folder File (.ost)
There are actually quite allot more reasons why Offline Mode starts. However Microsoft says these are the most common ones.
* The Exchange server is offline for maintenance.
* You are traveling and can’t connect to your Exchange server.
* You find performance unacceptable when using a slow connection to the server, such as dial-up connections with a 56 Kbps modem.
The idea with Work Offline is that you can keep working even though your internet or email server is unavailable. Once the internet or email server comes back online. Outlook should detect this and it will sync the work you have done up until that point.
How do I turn Work Offline on and off?
You will find the button to turn Work Offline on and off in the Send/Receive tab in the top of Outlook.
The image below will show you when you are in Offline Mode. You can tell this by the Orange box around work offline.
And also there will be a Red X and Working Offline in the bottom of your Outlook as well as a red X on your Outlook icon in your task bar.
To get yourself out of Work Offline, try restarting your Outlook. Make sure you do not have multiple Outlook.exe processes running in Task manager, check your internet connection. Check the Send/Receive tab and make sure that is it turned off.
I hope that helps solve some of the mystery. Good Luck.
