Whether you like Microsoft Teams or not, it is set to auto-start with most newer versions of Microsoft Office or Office 365. Even if you do use Teams, you may not want it starting automatically every time your computer boots up and you log in. To keep Teams from opening automatically, check out these simple instructions.
Office 365 soon to be Microsoft 365
On Tuesday, April 21, 2020 Microsoft’s premier Software as a Service (SaaS) offering officially becomes Microsoft 365. It is a very interesting change, considering how incredibly popular Office 365 is. There must be some high-level branding change going on in Redmond, Washington. Regardless, it will be … Microsoft 365. I am sure people will be calling it “Office” or “Office 365” for years to come!
LinkedIn Integration with Office Applications
Now that the Microsoft ‘LinkedIn’ purchase is completed, Microsoft is aggressively pursuing more relevant and very forward-thinking usage of all its applications in the SaaS [Office 365] world.
Nutshell: lots of resume / job searching /social profile types of integration between ‘LinkedIn’ and Office applications.
“With its $26 billion acquisition of LinkedIn getting the thumbs up from EU regulators, Microsoft is wasting no time in integrating the social platform with its productivity software.
The goal — as described by the tech giant’s CEO Satya Nadella — is to utilize LinkedIn’s networking and learning resources to help people “develop new skills online, find new jobs, and easily connect and collaborate.” “
Internet Explorer 11 Crashes on Windows 8.1
It’s so shocking when you have a brand new ASUS Windows 8.1 hybrid touch, keyboard laptop, but standard web surfing CRASHES continuously. Who expects this? Probably not Apple users.
Anyway, I have Internet Explorer 11 on this Windows 8.1 ASUS. I love it, I really do.
But one thing I noticed is that if I open up a Word Document off OneDrive, for example, and keep that Word document sitting around for a while, then my Internet Explorer will crash!
If I do NOT have Word Documents opened, no crashes. Weird!
So, a workaround is to close Word documents in order to surf the web without crashed. But is that the best solution? No. Word should be able coexist with … Internet Explorer. For the record I am using Word as part of Office 2010. I may try to edit documents online (using Office 365) as the default – this may resolve the issue long-term. At this point, I still prefer using the locally installed Word but I cannot handle IE crashes and restarts. So, another real fix is this: go into Internet Explorer’s Internet options, into Programs – you can see there is an HTML editing option. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY edits web pages in Word [the default]! Microsoft Word is the king of standard and advanced document editing, but it is not used for editing HTML pages. I do not care what anyone says otherwise ;>
So, do yourself a favor and change this to Notepad. This will not eliminate certain other types of crashes, for example, PISS POOR design on websites – something all too common these days. But it will go a long way to stop many crashes.
