Click "Compress Pictures" to remove the cropped content. Delete cropped areas of picture Even after you crop parts of a picture, the cropped parts remain as part of the picture file. You can reduce the file size by removing the croppings from the picture file. It is also a good idea to do this to help prevent other people from viewing the parts ...

It sounds like it is saved in the slide master. This should work (although I am by far not a PowerPoint expert). In the ribbon click on the "View" tab, and then click on Slide Master The left hand side preview should update, and you can now click on the first slide (which is the master slide). Right-click on the first slide and select Master Layout. ...

It's not really a flaw, that's just the way these presentation software work so you can adjust things easily (without reloading the original image each time you make a change). What about cropping the image in an image editor first? That way you know that other data is gone from the file, and it makes your resulting PowerPoint Presentation or Word Document ...

While I agree that this is a security issue, and one I was unaware of also, I would like to add to the list of workarounds already provided, as I doubt there is registry setting (or similar) to change this behaviour: Hold down Alt when you are using Prnt Scrn, if it is entire window contents you just want to capture. ...Or, if you need free-form control of ...

Finally found it. Inside word click: File -> Help Then under Click-to-run product updates Update Options -> Disable updates Now, why on earth did they put it under File -> Help and nowhere under File -> Options, don't ask me. Welcome to the new ribbon UI, we've made it "easier" to work with !

I ran the Office 2010 installer in repair mode. This changed the file associations for all Office documents to the 2010 version.

Being marked as "read" is a client side action not a server action. When you opened the message on your phone it (the client) read it and then told the server to mark it as read.

Its late but might help others who are searching for the same. You can still use double click on the time slot and by default you will get appointment request. Then you should be able to click on the "Invite" button in the appointment tab to convert it to a meeting request. If you don't see Invite button then try maximizing the buttons bar (in the mac, its ...

It looks like the short answer is no, Microsoft Word doesn't allow you to create or edit picture styles. However I did find a very nice work around here, here's a formatted version of what it says: Microsoft Word 2010 provides no means of creating a style for a picture that you can use to quickly format all of your images in the future. However, you have ...

Word used to have built=in Version Control. But that was removed in Word 2007: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/what-happened-to-versioning-HA010219332.aspx Now, they have 3 related features: Track Changes. This allows you to see any changes that have been made to a document and either approve or reject the changes. Manage Versions. This ...

According to this question on answers.microsoft.com you can insert the animation into an MS Word 2010 document, but it will only show the first frame (I'm guessing this is because they expect word processors only to produce static documents at the end of the day that can be printed out). However, if you set it as a webpage document and view it as a webpage ...

That L indicates the Left tab stops. Tab stops include: Types of tab stops include:         Left Tab: Left-aligns the text at the tab stop         Center Tab: Centers the text around the tab stop         Right Tab: Right-aligns the text at the tab stop         Decimal Tab: Aligns decimal numbers using the decimal point         Bar Tab: Draws a vertical line ...

I know this is an old question but I didn't see an answer. I used Geek Uninstaller and it worked like a charm. Uninstalled everything left by Office 2010, rebooted and installed Office again without issues.

DotTech has a guide on how to accomplish this for all versions of Excel in Windows 7 by updating the registry. Modify the default key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Excel.Sheet.12/shell/Open/command by adding a "%1" to the end (should end .../e "%1"). Rename the command key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Excel.Sheet.12/shell/Open/command to anything else. Rename the ddeexec ...

I have this problem regularly, and I usually try to solve it by manually transferring my settings. I admit that this is pretty time-consuming (at least when you are not used to it), and I, too, would prefer having a tool that just does it for me. But on the other hand, it is a way solving the issue without the need of using third party software. Here is what ...

In Word 2007/2010/2013 it's easy, open the footnote and endnote dialog and choose "restart at each page". See the OP's comment below for the Mac Word 2011 instructions.

I was having a similar problem. Some third party toolbox was crashing and I needed to set a variable value. It's a bit crude but here is some VBA code I knocked up that will list all the variables in the ActiveDocument.Variables collection; Public Sub ListAllVariables() Dim V As Variable, S As String For Each V In ActiveDocument.Variables S ...

You cannot use formatting to display a decimal point as a decimal comma or vice versa. These are delimiters used by the operating system. You CAN override the system separators in the Excel Options (File > Options > Advanced > untick "Use system separators" and replace with the separators you would like to use instead.)

As with the previous post, closing and re-opening fixed the problem. One note is for the project in question, a previous editor had saved it with a filter on the resource names, so that when I opened it that filter was still in place. After removing the filter the +/- to expand/collapse tasks did not work. I saved the project without the filter, then ...

While this doesn't answer the need of double-clicking for a Meeting Request by default, I've found a keyboard shortcut alternative will create a meeting request directly from Calendar view. Perform these steps in Calendar view: Select the time block(s) required for your Meeting. They should be highlighted in blue (assuming default color scheme). Press ...

RichEd20.DLL is the library which enables Rich Text Editing within Outlook. Based on exception code 0xc000041d (unhandled exception in user callback, maybe a null pointer exception), it's safe to say the repair failed spectacularly probably by not linking the new library correctly. The initial exception, 0xc0000005, is an access violation within the ...

As far as I know from my experience with Lync, the answer is no. In fact it would be irrational to do so. The list of frequent contacts exists to keep the information about people you have contacted frequently. Disabling this functionality defeats the purpose of having it. I completely understand the reason why one would not want to see the list of frequent ...

If you have closed the files normally and you are still getting auto recovery files then this means you still have temporary files in autosave folder. Go in File/Options/Save: find the path and delete everything in that folder. Close excel/word and open again. Check if you get autorecovery files again or not. Go in File/Options/Save: Change the location of ...

This is still a problem with Word 2016. Perhaps not the same as the OP had, but it's still there: start with a 1 page 20 KB document, save as PDF, get a 300 KB PDF. I can't say why Word does this, but there is an easy way to minify these PDF files: install GhostScript, then run the following command: gswin64c.exe -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -...

For Word 2013, I did find a way to make it show: Customize the Ribbon > All Tabs (from the Choose commands from drop-down arrow) > click Outlining > click Add. Yes, do this even though it's already showing in the list of tabs on the Main Tabs box on the right side of window. I Googled high and low, went to MS' site a dozen times, but couldn't find a ...

Right click on the ribbon menu (e.g on the Home tile). Select "Customize the Ribbon" and make sure that the category "Customize Ribbon" is selected in the leftmost side bar. Go to the right most column ("Customize the Ribbon"), make sure that the drop-down list just above the column is set to "Main Tabs" and then select a tabs category in the column (e.g. "...
