>> Office 2003

>>

>>
>> Office 2010

>>
>> FAQs: All you need to try out the Office 2010 beta
>>
>> When can I download the beta?
>>
>> Immediately.  Microsoft rolled out the beta at its Professional
>>
>> Developers
>> Conference (PDC) in November.  You can download it from
>>
>> tinyurl.com/yexjp89.  If
>> you don't want to hang around waiting for a hefty download to complete,
>>
>> there's
>> a 60-day trial version on this month's cover DVD.
>>
>> Do I need 32bit or 64bit Windows?
>>
>> Office 2010 is the first Microsoft suite to be offered in both 32- and
>>
>> 64bit
>> versions.  Choose the version that fits your operating system.  If
>>
>> you're not
>> sure of this, click Start, Control Panel, System Maintenance, System
>>
>> and details
>> about your PC will appear.
>>
>> We were unable to install Office 2010 beta on 64bit Windows XP,
>>
>> however.
>>
>> Is Microsoft limiting who can try it?
>>
>> There's no cap on the number of downloads for Office 2010 beta.  And
>>
>> Microsoft
>> has not, as yet, set a time limit.  "I'm not sure whether we have a
>>
>> specific
>> plan to shut off availability at some point," says Takeshi Numoto.
>>
>> The Microsoft vice-president adds that the company intends to make sure
>> "millions and millions" of users are able to download and try the
>>
>> preview.
>>
>> What edition of Office is the beta?
>>
>> You can choose between Office Professional Plus 2010, the
>> everything-and-the-kitchen-sink edition, or Student and Home.  When
>>
>> Office 2010
>> launches commercially, Professional Plus will be available only to
>>
>> enterprises
>> and volume licensees.
>>
>> Professional Plus includes Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint,
>>
>> OneNote,
>> Access, Publisher, InfoPath, SharePoint Workspace and Communicator.
>>
>> Microsoft originally listed three different versions on the Office 2010
>>
>> beta
>> website: Professional Plus, Office Professional and Office Home and
>>
>> Business.
>> The two retail versions have yet to be offered through the beta
>>
>> program,
>> however.
>>
>> Numoto said Microsoft still plans to offer versions other than
>>
>> Professional, but
>> wouldn't be drawn on timing.  "We'll make additional offerings fairly
>>
>> shortly,"
>> was all he would reveal at launch time.
>>
>> Are there any problems with the beta?
>>
>> The day it launched there were a few issues, but since then
>>
>> availability of the
>> code from the download site has been fine and it's been simple enough
>>
>> to get the
>> product key.
>>
>> What do I need to install the beta?
>>
>> Microsoft has set the minimum requirements as a 500MHz or faster
>>
>> processor,
>> 256MB of memory, 3GB of hard-disk space and Windows XP Service Pack 3
>>
>> (SP3),
>> Vista SP1, Server 2003, Server 2008 or Windows 7.
>>
>> "You don't need to replace hardware that's capable of running Office
>>
>> 2007,"
>> Microsoft says.  The 32bit version is about 85MB; the 64bit version is
>>
>> 750MB.
>>
>> Do I need to activate Office?
>>
>> You'll need a product-activation key to use the software beyond the
>>
>> 30-day trial
>> period.  (It's not an issue if you get it from our DVD.) The product
>>
>> key you're
>> assigned when you start the download will work only with the beta code.
>>
>>  Print
>> it out and store it safely.
>>
>> The product key can't be used to upgrade from the technical preview
>>
>> either;
>> you'll need to uninstall that version and then install the public beta.
>>
>> Can I upgrade Office 2007 to the beta?
>>
>> Yes, but you may not want to.  When you install Office 2010 beta, you
>>
>> can choose
>> between Upgrade and Customize options.  The former replaces your
>>
>> existing copy
>> of Office with Office 2010.  However, once the beta expires you'll have
>>
>> to
>> reinstall the earlier edition using the installation CD.  Choose the
>>
>> Customize
>> option and install Office 2010 beta alongside your existing version so
>>
>> you can
>> use both.
>>
>> You'll still need to reinstall one - and perhaps two - applications
>>
>> from your
>> older edition once you stop using the Office 2010 beta, however.  These
>>
>> include
>> the Outlook email application and SharePoint Workspace, which can't
>>
>> co-exist
>> with previous versions on your computer.  Microsoft says you can't run
>>
>> two
>> copies of Outlook on the same system.
>>
>> What's Click-to-Run?
>>
>> Click-to-Run is a technology that Microsoft debuted along with the
>>
>> technical
>> preview as a way to optimise downloads.  It 'streams' pieces of the
>>
>> Office 2010
>> beta as you begin the download, and should allow you to start using
>>
>> elements of
>> the suite within minutes.  While you get to work on the trial, the
>>
>> remainder of
>> the code is downloaded in the background by Click-to-Run.
>>
>> But there's more to Click-to-Run than speeding up the process of
>>
>> starting to use
>> Office 2010.  The technology also runs the application in a virtualised
>> environment, separating it from the rest of Windows.
>>
>> "Click-to-Run applications don't end up modifying any other software
>>
>> installed
>> on the system," explains a Microsoft engineering team blog post.  "With
>>
>> few
>> exceptions, only user data actually passes through the virtual
>>
>> environment to
>> the local system."
>>
>> Microsoft says it will also use the Click-to- Run technology to deliver
>>
>> free
>> trials of Office 2010 when it ships next year.
>>
>> Which languages are supported?
>>
>> English, Chinese, French, German, Russian and Spanish so far.  Japanese
>>
>> has also
>> been promised by Microsoft.
>>
>> What support is available?
>>
>> You can browse the support material on office.com, or ask other beta
>>
>> testers for
>> help in the user forums - or, of course, our own forums at
>>
>> pcadvisor.co.uk.
>>
>> When does the beta expire?
>>
>> Not until 31 October 2010, according to the end-user licensing
>>
>> agreement (Eula)
>> that accompanies the product.  But the full version of the software may
>>
>> launch
>> earlier; undenied rumours surfaced at the start of December that it
>>
>> will launch
>> in June.
>>
>> What about the online version?
>>
>> A limited version of Office Web Apps can also be downloaded.  You can
>>
>> create but
>> not properly share or do much editing with these apps so far.  Word,
>>
>> Excel and
>> PowerPoint are the only three apps currently available.
>>
>> "We should have a fully featured beta for consumers early next calendar
>>
>> year,"
>> says Numoto.  "Until then, consumers will continue to get the technical
>>
>> preview
>> of Web Apps."
>>
>> For more details, see the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 blog post at
>>
>> bit.ly/1fdHnL.
>>
>> Will Office be updated before launch?
>>
>> No.  Microsoft says it will go straight from beta to 'release to
>>
>> manufacturing'
>> (RTM) version.
>>
>> Can I easily get rid of the beta if I wish?
>>
>> Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs in XP; Control Panel,
>>
>> Uninstall a
>> Program in Vista; and Control Program, Programs, Programs and Features
>>
>> in
>> Windows 7.  Select Office 2010 and click Uninstall.

>>

>>
>> Edit subject lines
>>
>> A common email annoyance is a subject line that no longer matches the
>>
>> content of
>> the message.
>>
>> Suppose you and your colleagues started off emailing each other about a
>>

>>
>> this

>>

>>
>> Fortunately, Outlook has a hidden feature that lets you edit an email's
>>
>> subject
>> line.  Open the email in a new window; this trick can't be done in the
>>
>> preview
>> pane.  Click anywhere in the subject line, then edit it as you see fit.
>>
>>  Press
>> Enter and accept whatever warning Outlook gives you.
>>
>> You can now file the email with a more appropriate (and informative)
>>
>> subject
>> line.
>>

>> like, why
>> not use it for your Twitter activity too?  TwInbox ( bit.ly/8szSGm) is
>>
>> a free
>> plug-in that adds a Twitter toolbar to Outlook.
>>
>> Once installed, TwInbox places a new folder in your inbox.  It can also
>>
>> make
>> individual folders for each sender, which you might find helpful from
>>
>> an
>> organisational standpoint - unless you follow lots of people.
>>
>> Supply your Twitter username and password, and the plug-in will fetch
>>
>> all the
>> tweets from your account and let you read them just as you read email.
>>
>> With a click of the toolbar you can send out an update, send a direct
>>
>> message,
>> reply to a message or retweet something.  TwInbox automatically
>>
>> shortens any
>> long web addresses using TinyURL.com.
>>
>> The toolbar also shows you a preview of new tweets as they arrive,
>>
>> which saves
>> you having to switch over to the tweets folder every time you want to
>>
>> check for
>> updates.
>>
>> In short, TwInbox is a terrific little utility, and it's a must-have
>>
>> tool for
>> any Twitterloving Outlook user.  We wish it could handle more than one
>>
>> Twitter
>> account, but we can't argue with the price: TwInbox is free.
