  • 1. Add a favorites list for opening and storing Microsoft Office fil.
    Would Microsoft please add a "Favorites" list similar like what is done in Internet Explorer or web browser programs for opening and saving Microsoft Office files. This would work great for programs like Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc. For work, I have to organize my files into folders for different projects. The folders become numerous with several layers to them tending to make it hard to find where I want to open the file from or save it to. Some projects are projects I work on everyday, so I have to go to that file everyday, but I still have to keep the same file folder structure for organizing the files. By adding a "Favorites" list, it would create a way for the user to have a shortcut to particular file folders. Maybe the folder is used often or maybe its used rarely but very important not to misplace. Either way, the addition of a tool like this would be very helpful.
  • 2. oem version sould be able to install to the second pc
    If you purchased preinstalled version, it may looks cheap at that moment but it won't let you installed to the second pc, not only that but you won't be able to get the assistance direct from Microsoft, naturally if you have any problem you have to deal with those ignorants which the manufacturer provided(my case DELL). I recomend you purchase the upgrade version, which you can take care both situations.
  • 3. Format Painter KB shortcut not working...
    I'm runnuing Office 03 and the format painter has a KB shortcut of Ctrl+Shift+C (per its tooltip). When I highlight text and do a Ctrl+Shift+C I do not get the format painter icon that indicates that the text that I hightlight next will have the format of the text previously higlighted. So my question is, how do I use a KB shortcut to access the format painter function? Many thanks!

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
