More on Windows 10

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

The Windows 10 beta has been running sweetly on both my laptop and PC systems. The upgrade has gone so well, I’m seriously impressed. But I do have some concerns about Windows 10.

Gone From the App Store

Highlighter v. Background Color

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

It must be Word Week here at Wambooli, because this is the second Microsoft Word post in a row. (And, yes, a third one is coming Friday.) Today’s post concerns a question I’ve pondered before: Why does Word feature a Highlighter command?
