Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member Bender serves as administrator of a neighborhood watch group. Among other tasks, he manages their communication system. He’s dismayed by the reduction of group services in Microsoft OneDrive, which he previously used to broadcast messages and alerts to his neighbors.

Office Applications    
General Productivity How to tell which service pack is installed?
Word Processing Replacing hyphens with en dashes between numbers
