CloudOn — Office for iOS and Android

Posted on June 20, 2012. Filed under: Android, Apple, Freeware/Shareware, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office Suite, Online storage | Tags: , , , , , , |

Still waiting for Microsoft Office for iOS (iPads/iPhones/etc) and/or Android? Try CloudOn apps.

Like any app, it may or may not work well on your device.  Use at your own risk and CHECK THE REVIEWS first — apps may be changed after being included in the store so later updates include malware.

It’s Office 2007 and works with files from DropBox/Google Drive/Box cloud storage.  And it’s free!

Microsoft Office 2007 without a mouse

Posted on May 16, 2008. Filed under: Microsoft Office 2007, Techniques | Tags: , , , |

Okay, some of us keyboard-oriented types hate to take our hands off the keyboard to use a mouse to navigate. It’s hard on the ol’ carpal tunnel problem.

Office 2007 has a neat little trick to help: press the Alt key while in any Office 2007 program, and the ribbon with the menus instantly has a batch of little labels with the keystroke to use.  You can then use H for Home, and N for Insert, etc.
