If you use Microsoft Office, you know it is a powerful office suite but
there are more features that could be added. Well Microsoft has you
covered with a bunch of add-ins to customize Office to your needs.
example, you may have have heard that when you collaborate on documents
in your office the changes and comments that you and your associates
make to the document are tracked. Even if you hide that data when done,
it's still there. So, before you send the document out, use the Remove
Hidden Data add-in.
There are a variety of add-ins
for all of the programs but there is a search engine to help you find
the add-ins for the programs you use. These add-ins have all been
testes and should work fine. The great part is they are all free so you
can try as many as you would like. We will put a link to the site in
the show notes.
Check out other add-ins at www.microsoft.com/downloads
One of the old Mac standard features was brought back in Panther. It is
called Labels and it lets you color code your files for easy visual
recognition. For example, you could make your work files blue and your
home files green.
To assign a color label to a file, click on the file, then click on the
Action in the toolbar. In the pop-up menu that appears, under the Color
Label section go directly to the color you want. You can also
Control-click on the file and access the Color Labels there.
adding a color label doesn't actually change the
color of a file's icon, it just puts a color bar around the file's name.
all of you anal retentive organization freaks - you know
who you are - can organize all of your files.
