If a Windows 10 device is reset using a feature of the operating system, unwanted apps may appear on subsequent reinstallation. These include Spotify, all sorts of cheap and often very childish games, various links to Office web apps, and of course the obligatory OneNote. While the apps and games can be removed in the usual way, deleting the web links fails, and worse still, these shortcuts do not disappear from the Start menu even after installing the full Office 2019 or Microsoft 365 package, so Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word all appear twice, which can confuse some programs.
By default, Word saves recovery information every ten minutes. If the program or computer freezes, all your work is not lost. For those who find this interval too long, you can increase the frequency to every two minutes, for example.
Anyone who uses Word to create applications, invoices, and the like, and uses a previously saved document, can make their work easier by ensuring that the date stamped in the document template is automatically updated. This is not too difficult, as Word offers a special function for this.
Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365) subscribers know that they benefit from a range of extra services, including 1TB of storage space in the OneDrive cloud, regular feature updates, and access to premium templates. But more recently, they also come with free fonts.
