Found this info: "It only works on the Inbox folder" By default the new New Mail Desktop Alert will only show when the mail is delivered to the Inbox (as the option says as well in Tools-> Options-> button E-mail Options-> button Advanced E-mail Options). This means that when you have a rule configured to move your mail to a different ...

At last after a lot of searching on the Internet I found the solution: You must select English as the default keyboard language (control panel -> regional settings -> keyboard). If you select a non-English language as the default keyboard language and open Microsoft Word a lot of shortcuts will change to IBM Common User Access mode (e.g. Ctrl+C will ...

I find that a quicker way to do this is to just use F4 (or Ctrl-Y). Note that on this page it says that F4 will Repeat the last action, but Ctrl-Y will also do the same thing. On the Mac version (Office 2011) F4 does not work, so Cmd-Y is the only option. So, insert all your images without worrying about their size. Then right click on the first image ...

This can be a bit confusing since the Word 2007+ context menu on your document is a bit useless. Regardless, changing the orientation of a single document is simple if you know where to look. Follow the steps listed below to rotate a single page in your document. First, place your cursor on the page that you would like to rotate. If you want to insert a ...

I archived the folder and the text went blue as expected... Blue text in Explorer = NTFS compression is enabled via the properties (this has been standard in Windows for many versions now). Two blue arrows is Windows 10's new way of showing the same thing, at the icon-level. Reference/More info: Compress or Uncompress Files and Folders in Windows ...

How do incoming emails arrive in different folders? Different email delivery locations or custom rules? If you use custom rules, add the action "Display a Desktop Alert" in the Rule Wizard, at the "Select action(s)" step where the "move it to the specified folder" is also defined. If you have a different delivery location per email account (as defined in ...

No. The new ribbon interface (fluent UI) is the only available menu style in office 2007. There is no official option to switch to the classic menu bars. (There are 3rd party apps and custom hacks that you could use to build up menus that looked like the old ones in the Ribbon - see tnorthcutt's answer) If you want my honest advice though, don't try and ...

Try running Process Monitor or Process Explorer and capture what happens during "normal" operation as well as during the moments when it seems to slow down. That's a way of troubleshooting it. You could also try uninstalling Live Mesh and see if it makes a difference.

Assuming that you are using a Page Break on your title page, then Insert your table after the title (I'd insert it on a new line so that it doesn't have the title's style) Right click the table and select Table Properties....

By default they're not in the Ribbon Tab but in the Quick Access Toolbar, Top Left, next to the Save button. Note that the Redo button is only activated after an Undo.

CSV files contain only data, as comma-separated values. If you want to keep your formatting changes, save the file as an Excel file (i.e. myfile.xls), using the 'save as' file menu option.

I fixed this problem relatively easily by going to to the 'Office Button' > Prepare > Edit Links to files, and selecting 'Change Source'. I basically changed the source to a random blank Excel workbook within the same directory as the word document. After this, I carefully scanned through all Excel charts in my document. The faulty chart was caught red-...

From Default Picture Settings : If you have a need to format quite a few pictures using the same settings, the easiest approach is to create a quick-and-dirty macro to apply the formatting settings you want. You could then paste the picture, select it, and then run the macro. You can create such a macro by following these general steps: ...

The real problem seems to be a bug: the (Office) shortcuts refer to icons that are in %systemroot%\installer... and these folders are now compressed so also the icon is compressed. Workaround: create new shortcuts that refer to the (uncompressed) executables. (or uncompress the installer folders: not recommended).

Take a look at WineHQ - Microsoft Office (installer only) to see the latest status of support of Office 2007. Scroll down to see the actual apps, not just the installer. Executive summary is that it basically works, but there's a few corners in each app that are currently broken. Here are the results of the major apps: Word 2007 - Silver Excel 2007 - ...

I don't believe there is a way to set the Office 2007 color schemes per application. I think that setting the color is done per the entire Office suite, no matter from which Office application the change was done:

The short answer is "you can't". it's a feature.

If you can locate the folders with files that Windows cannot ...

In my experience, if you open the second spreadsheet using File >> Open, it opens in the same program window. If you open a second Excel instance from the Start menu or a desktop icon or such, then use File >> Open in that window, it opens in its own program window. I agree that it's broken behavior and I know of no way to fix it except, perhaps, begging ...

I have been using a small batch file to circumvent this problem with Excel and it works fine for me: every time I double click a document, it opens another instance of Excel. Using notepad create a batch file (e.g., "C:\Program Files\ExcelLauncher.bat") with following content: START "" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE" %1 START "" "...
