Definition of Wikipedia: Wikipedia (Listeni/ˌwɪkᵻˈpiːdi.ə/ or Listeni/ˌwɪkiˈpiːdi.ə/ WIK-i-PEE-dee-ə) is a multilingual, web-based, free-content encyclopedia project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation and based on a model of openly editable content. The name “Wikipedia” is a portmanteau of the words wiki (a technology for creating collaborative websites, from the Hawaiian word wiki, meaning “quick”) and encyclopedia.

Archive Folder in Microsoft Outlook

A new feature in Outlook is included where we can send Messages to the Archive Folder. Once we move one or more messages to our Archive Folder, it doesn’t mean that we are deleting them, we just store them there in order to find them easier and quicker. What are the benefits though of moving Items to the Archive Folder;

  • It is easier to find Items that we have Archived or by the Search box.
  • The Items in the Archive Folder are still available on our Phone or other Devices.

Add Alt Text in PowerPoint 365

Alternative Text For Images. What is it though?

Alternative text is text associated with an image that serves the same purpose and conveys the same essential information as the image. In situations where the image is not available to the reader, perhaps because they have turned off images in their web browser or are using a screen reader due to a visual impairment, the alternative text ensures that no information or functionality is lost. Absent or unhelpful alternative text can be a source of frustration for visually impaired users of the Web.
