> If you send a document for review to several reviewers, and each reviewer
> returns the document, you can combine the documents two at a time until 
> all
> the
> reviewer changes have been incorporated into a single document.
> 2.
> Did you know with Excel 2007 you can enjoy increased spreadsheet row and
> column capacity of 1 million rows by 16,000 columns that enables you to
> import
> and work with massive amounts of data and achieve faster calculation
> performance with support for dual or multicore processors.
> 3.
> Have you heard of SmartArt? They're new in Office 2007 (Excel, Outlook,
> PowerPoint and Word) and are a visual representation of your information 
> and
> ideas.
> You can create SmartArt graphics by choosing from among many different
> layouts to quickly, easily, and effectively communicate your message.
> 4.
> Save hours by applying Themes to your documents. Changing the theme of 
> your
> presentation not only changes the background color but also the colors,
> styles,
> and fonts of the diagrams, tables, charts, shapes, and text within your
> presentation. By applying a theme, you can be confident that your entire
> presentation
> has a professional and consistent look and feel.
> 5.
> Customise your Office Online experience by signing into 'My Office 
> Online'.
> It will allow you to customise your experience, submit to community
> templates
> and enable you to join the Outlook Calendar Sharing Service where you can
> share you calendars with coworkers, friends and family.

> Do you often find that you've lost a lot of information from a recovered
> document after a power cut? You can minimize this problem by making a few
> changes.
> First let us tell you why this happens. The amount of new information that
> the recovered document contains depends on how frequently Word saves the
> recovery
> file. For example, if the recovery file is saved only every 15 minutes, 
> then
> up to 15 minutes of work can be lost if a power failure or similar problem
> occurs. To change the Auto Recover, save interval open Microsoft Word like
> you would always do to open or create a new file. Then go to the `Tools'
> function
> and select `Options' from the menu. Select `Save' in the dialog box that
> appears. Then enter or select the number of minutes in intervals of which
> your
> document will be automatically saved.
> PC users who have a problem machine, especially a system that hangs, often
> tend to just turn the PC on and off to make it work. This is simply
> and will only cause the system to deteriorate rapidly. When you turn the
> power off always wait for at least a minute before turning it on again. 
> This
> allows
> the hard disk to settle down before it is made to spin up again. Otherwise
> the hard disk goes through jerks and you are reducing its life and
> performance
> efficiency significantly. Also, do not forget the `Reset' button on your 
> PC.
> It is better to use this than to turn the PC--and therefore the power--on
> and off.
> Password-Protect Your Screen Saver
> Don't want nosy neighbors meddling in your business when you step away 
> from
> your computer? A screen saver will stop the passers-by (unless they can 
> get
> close enough to bump your mouse), but a password-protected screen saver is
> even better.
> Right-click the desktop and select Properties to open the Display 
> Properties
> dialog box. Click the Screen Saver tab, select Password Protected, then
> click
> the Change button and enter a password twice. Click OK and you'll see a
> dialog box telling you the password has been changed. Click OK two more
> times.
> The next time your screen saver kicks in and anyone (including you) tries 
> to
> get past it, it'll be a no go without the password. So make sure you don't
> forget your password!
> How To Test Audio On Your CD
> If you cannot hear CD-ROM audio on your machine, play a music-only CD and
> monitor the output via the front-panel headphone jack. If that works, you
> know
> the drive is okay.
> Next, run a cable from the headphone jack to the line input on the
> soundcard. Now adjust the mixer's line level and master level. If that 
> works
> too, the
> soundcard is also okay and the problem is probably in the separate audio,
> the only link between the CD-ROM drive and the soundcard.
> Remember, the only audio you will hear from the drive's headphone is
> conventional CD audio. MIDI and WAV files on a CD-ROM disk will not be 
> heard
> via the
> headphone jack.
> Turn Window and Menu Animation On and off
> If you've used Windows 95 in the past, you might notice now that opening
> menus look different in Windows 98 than you're used to. You're not 
> imagining
> it.
> Menus now slide out from the menu bar. When you right-click an item, a 
> menu
> zooms out. And tool tips roll down when you pass your mouse over a toolbar
> button. Of course you can customize
> Windows 98 to turn these new effects on or off.
> Here's how: On the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control
> Panel. Double-click the Display icon. Click the Effects tab. In the Visual
> effects
> area, clear the Animate windows, menus, and lists check box to turn these
> effects off. You can select this box again to turn them back on.
> Update Windows Registry Without Rebooting
> Every time you install new software, or make alterations to the default
> settings, you have to reboot your computer. Not any more! Press
> [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del],
> select Explorer & click End Task when windows asks 'Are you sure you want 
> to
> shut down your computer?' Click `No' & then click `End Task' at the next
> prompt.
> Did you know that Windows is an incomplete program?
> Here's something interesting about Windows being an incomplete program! 
> Yes
> it is true! Do this simple thing.
> . Go to Start-->Settings-->Taskbar & Start Menu
> . You would see two tabs named Taskbar Options, and Start Menu programs
> . Now again hold down the Ctrl key throughout and then
> . Go to Start-->Settings-->Taskbar & Start Menu
> . You would see the incomplete part of Windows an extra tab named Deskbar
> Options.
> And we aren't talking about bug fixes here.

> Cool Ways To Minimize Windows
> Sure, you can go to the top-right corner and select the option to minimize
> each window.  But do check out these cool alternatives that might be more
> convenient
> for you.
> . To minimize a single window, you can press Alt-Spacebar-N.
> . To minimize all windows in one go, right click the taskbar, and select 
> the
> minimize all windows option in the menu that springs up.
> Customize Right-click Menus In Windows
> To customize a right-click menu:
> . Open any folder, then select Folder Options from the View menu.
> . Next, click the File Types tab, choose the type of file you wish to 
> edit,
> then click Edit.
> . In the Actions display, click New. The action is what will appear in the
> menu. Enter the action you would like to add such as Open or Print.
> Under Application Used To Perform Action, enter the execution command you
> would like performed. To see how the syntax works, open up other Action
> items
> and see how they are entered. When you're done, click OK, then click Close
> twice.
> hope this helps!
