Comparing notes on Office on Windows 10

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member JytteC has three new PCs, all equipped with Windows 10.

He bought Office 2016 and installed it on all three machines, with such unhappy results that he took off the new Office and reinstalled the old Office 2003! Now, all is well again, he says to his fellow Loungers in the Windows 10 forum.

Whereupon Loungers compare their Office on Windows experiences. You might find it all instructive.
