Office 365

Microsoft Tech Summit – Day Two

  Thursday marked the second and final day of Microsoft’s Amsterdam Tech Summit. Leaving immediately after the last session, I managed to get myself to Amsterdam’s Main Railway Station about 15 minutes before my train departed.

My now resolved Office Issues – All’s well that ends well

As I have recounted in a preceding series of posts on this site, starting in mid-January and lasting some few weeks I encountered various weird issues with Office 365. Here’s a list of those posts in chronological order, oldest first: https://win10.guru/insider-build-upgrade-the-tale-of-a-brick-formerly-known-as-a-laptop/ https://win10.guru/the-tale-of-a-brick-formerly-known-as-a-laptop-part-two/ https://win10.guru/office-365-activation-and-account-errors/ https://win10.guru/office-365-issues-the-story-continues/   No matter what I did or tricks I essayed, Office
