    Thanks for that - MS is reported on https://office.uservoice.com/forums/285186-general/suggestions/9906966-office-2016-quick-access-toolbar-too-wide?page=9&per_page=20 to have (finally) responded to...

    I like many aspects of W10. But one of several things I don't like is that Update will undo at least some registry changes you have made. For example I really do not want This PC to show the folders...

    I use Office 365/2013. Works fine under Windows 10. I cannot upgrade to 2016 until MS fixes the stupid wide icon spacing in the quick access toolbar. Even 2013 is not great in that regard - in many...

    If you have a pdf printer installed (I use Acrobat X), just press Ctrl P and choose pdf. However for many web pages this gives you a lot of rubbish and a very long file. This page for example out of...

    This alone will stop me "upgrading" to 2016. 2013 is bad enough but 2016 is worse. Hopefully MS will fix this major problem before too long. If it worries you, please visit MS feedback and add your...

    Easily fixed

    I create a new partition called Skydrive, and sync it with my data partition. I then sync the Skydrive partition to OneDrive. So the only time OneDrive wants to transfer files to the cloud is when I...

    The best thing about Eudora (I assume you're talking Eudora 7) is that it is ridiculously easy to install, reinstall and back up. Install it as administrator in your data partition - say D:\Data (or...

    I use Omnipage Ultimate, expensive but sometimes offered cheaply. Very efficient conversion of all files into Word or Excel. But no good if you can't install software.

    Encryption is useful for a range of activities other than whole disk encrypting. For example, I use it to encrypt my backup files on external hard drives, to reduce risks if a drive is stolen. I...

    Lincoln: I am disappointed that you dropped OneDrive from your analysis. I have no use for versioning, or rather I manage my own versioning system, and absolutely do not want or need my OneDrive...

    Good point Berton. Another trick that I find useful is the use of Alt and drag the pointer to select eg, a column of first letters of the items in a list. Then you can press Shift F3 to change their...

    I am glad to see some mild to strong supporters of W8 commenting here. I am among the latter, but think MS made a big mistake in getting 8 to default to Metro/Modern, that they have partly rectified...

    It certainly is a struggle, but worth it. I put my customised buttons on the quick access toolbar, but they could equally go on the ribbon. Once you have got it working, you will (probably) find that...

    All user settings, macros etc in 2007 are contained in Normal.dotm - the normal template. So the key is to bring that across into 2013 or 365. There are two ways to do this - one easy, one less so....

    IMO you should have no need for a third party imager on Windows 8. In principle Recimg will take a full image of your OS drive, which will be used instead of the built-in refresh or reimage option....
