A new feature available in Microsoft Office applications, is the Touch/Mouse Mode. What does this feature do? It increases or leaves the same, the spacing between the commands of the ribbon in Microsoft Office applications. Touch Mode lets us use the program even without a mouse if our device supports it by increasing the spacing. Mouse Mode lets us use the program with our mouse.

In older versions of Microsoft Office, speech recognition was included. All we had to do was to find where it was located. Now this feature is part of Office.

Many times, we navigate in a Windows Explorer where we have Word Documents and Excel Spreadsheets. Of course, we have named them, but we need to get a quick idea of what these Files actually contain. The only thing that we see is a Preview of a Word Document or an Excel Spreadsheet. Thankfully, we can generate Thumbnails of Microsoft Word Documents and Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets in order to have a glimpse of what these Files actually contain. Just keep on reading below.
How many times we found our-selves looking for a Font, that we wanted to use in our Microsoft Applications. How many hours wasted navigating around the Web to find the specific Font. Not only that, but then we had to Install it also, either by right clicking on it, or by installing it with the use of the Control Panel. Not to worry anymore. In Microsoft Office 365 applications, there is no need to worry about it, or no time to waste with it. All we have to do is to open the specific application that we want to use, and then from the Font drop-down menu, we just select the Font that we want to download and that is it. A preview of the Font is available, and every once in a while, New Fonts become available.
In our multicultural word, we often find ourselves within Microsoft Office applications, the necessity to work in other languages rather than our native language. We can even set both the Display Language and the Editing Language to be the same, or we can make them to be in different languages if we want. We can have multiple languages installed, and switch between them quickly and easily.
Below, I will describe and show how to make Microsoft Office applications to work in another language.
We must pay attention to the three basic areas, where we might want to change the language:
Display Language: Also known as User Interface or “UI”, which is all the buttons, menus and commands in Office.
Editing Language: Is the Language, where we type and edit our content.
Proofing Tools: So we can do the Spelling and Grammar check.
