microsoft office problemsMicrosoft Office suite of programs

Microsoft Office Suite of programs has been around since the mid 90s and is the de facto standard for all business users. It is often installed as a trial on new computers and for that reason I'm covering it on this website.

Microsoft Office Suite comprises at it's most basic, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access with other, more expensive, versions incorporating Publisher, One Note and Outlook.

Microsoft Office Suite of programs has thousands of features some of which are really useful and some hardly ever get used. This can make learning all the subtle tricks that one can do with Microsoft Office suite a little difficult. In the 90s I used to run two training centers in Telford, Shropshire and during the time learned quite a few tricks to using Microsoft Office suite along with some great fixes and workarounds. I intend to add many of them to this page.
