For fucks sake… I can’t believe they’re going to discontinue the Mail and Calender app. It’s such a great app, much better than the new Outlook preview thing…
Why can’t we have both?
I got a email warning me about a suspicious login attempt from Russia. I didn't click anything in the email but. I went on my account to verify if there were truly any attempts.
20-30 attempts at varying times through all of yesterday from places like Russia, Mexico and other countries. Obviously the same person masking their IP.
I changed my password, enables two step verification and download Microsofts Authenticator app.
Am I safe yet lol?
I’ve lost access to my admin Microsoft account and I don’t have access to the email, and the number for the account is an old number. Can I switch to a different microsoft account for admin without logging in to the old one? If not how can I recover the account?
So I had applied for an internship position at Microsoft around 3-4 days ago. When I checked the action centre today, it showed some notifications, one was of the same day notifying that the application has been submitted (title was application submitted), another was also of the same day but the title of notification was 'Application transferred ' and it said that ' We transferred your application to _(job title, location and possibly job id)___________, and it's in review. So the number that was in brackets (job id I guess) was different from the number in the application submitted notification.
When I see submitted jobs, the job title, location and job id of this "transferred application" is visible and the actual job title and other info that was present, when I originally applied is in the inactivate section and status shows "transferred". The original posting was - SWE: Intern Opportunities for Uni Students.......If this helps
what does it mean??
I've been going back and forth with person A. I want to send the entire conversation to person B so they can review everything already discussed with person A.
How do I do this in the Outlook app?
Just ran into some recent trouble, every time I try to double click on a file, word wont open it. For example, If Im writing an essay and wanted to pull something up from another file, when I click whatever file I want, it just brings me back to the same page I was on before without actually opening the file. I can access the documents directly by searching things up on word, or by right clicking and hitting the edit key, but both can be pretty inconvenient. I dont have this problem with excel or spreadsheets so I have no idea what the deal is.
Here are the things Ive tried, but havent worked
Both quick time and full time repair of microsoft office
Changing the mouse settings in the registry to 4 and adjusting the mouse speed
Resetting the file explorer settings to default and clearing the file explorer history
Ending task for file explorer on task manager
Bios updates and windows updates
Malwarebytes virus scan and ccleaner scans
disabling add ins on word settings
adding the documents and download files as trusted paths in the trust center settings
Genuinely have zero idea what Im supposed to do here anymore, if theres any advice or anyone who has the same issue, id appreciate any help you can give.
Do any of you guys know what Microsoft UI is, I keep getting hit with Random Charges On my card, and hoping someone can help me
So my school has windows education license I can get for free vs the $200 one. I would use the computer for everything. In college use it for school related to stuff. But also while still in college, business related stuff. Then when I graduate continue using it for business stuff. Are their any legal issues? Is it allowed. Since the way I’m getting the key is through the school. The school is buying it on my behalf. Does the school have some right to that key. Can they take the key from me if they want. Can they see if it’s still in use ect thanks!
I bought a new ssd for my Dell XPS 15 and installed a fresh instance of microsoft on it. Now I wanted to use the old one just to chek on some old files. And boom, a bitlocker boot screen asking me for a bitlocker key. But I don't have any bitlocker key and I never was interested with encrypting my files ; I'm not a spy, I don't have anything sensitive and the only valuable thing with my files is their availability for me. So I don't care about bitlocker. And now, AS USUAL with microsoft, that's another f**ked up 250GO of files. I'm getting quite sick at microsoft messing with my files amongst which are graphic design, web design projects and photography. I asked for nothing and AGAIN, without any significant action on that ssd, it's apparently gone.
I followed the instructions and logged on microsoft's bitlocker key manager with the account that I used to use for my old installation. Guess what ? There's no key.
I guess that there's no way of getting my files back ; is there ? Thanks for your help
Hi all, I need help! (Thanks in advance). So we have a distribution list created in our on prem AD (Windows). What I need is for this on prem distro to be converted to a shared mailbox in the cloud (M365 admin center/exchange). From what I've researched the only way to do this would be to change the name of the on prem distro, let the sync occur, then created a new shared mailbox in the cloud with the same original name of the distro. Is this accurate? I need this transition to occur with the least amount of disruption in communication. Any ideas are appreciated, thanks again!
Hi I regularly format my PC and reinstall everything from the ground up.
I'm wondering what the best licence type of ms office would be for me.
I want it to be reinstallable as many times as I want and on different machines (potentially) But only have 1 instance licenced at a time
So I can install on pc or laptop, but not both at once.
I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org asking me to complete the purchase of Microsoft 365 which I bought earlier this week. I’m not sure if this is a real email or some type of scam.
How do I populate the dates automatically? For example, if I change the start date, all the dates below automatically populate to the new date??
Currently, WNS works only for Windows UWP apps installed from Windows Store.
In WWDC 2023, Apple added Web Push with notifications working like native apps, once the web app has been added to the dock. This will be released soon in macOS Sonoma.
Many small development teams have limited bandwidth to create performant apps that works on multiple platforms.
Adding WNS on Edge for Windows ensures:
Customers will not miss out on transactional notifications even after the browser window is inactive, or process terminated, improving their user experience significantly
Teams can develop their apps more efficiently by just using Web Push instead of creating Windows UWP apps simply to access WNS
Customers can also use Web Apps without the battery drain of background browser processes
I am certain many small development teams would benefit from this addition, and hope this could be expedited.
I recently upgraded my laptop and moved the hard drive from my old PC into the new one. But after installation it has been encrypted. I've tried deactivating it in PowerShell and other ways found online but no matter what I try I keep getting access denied errors and I can't remove it. Can anyone help?

Spent 2 hours speaking to Microsoft with no solution. Anyone else run into this error?
Hi Everyone, Hope you're well. Can you please advise a solution for activation. I'm always getting the same Error code: RiskRejected - WE CANT SETUP YOUR ACCOUNT RIGHT NOW.. Hang on to your product key, and try again later.
Been trying for 4 hrs and no change.
Is the Windows operating system not a viable business? Of the splendid computers Microsoft sell aditionally to run Windows...? Indeed Officesuite is expensive, and running Windows full suite is far more costly than the Windows price tag, still, to take the games industry by storm, and for "relevance" accordingly to forward documents submitted in court about the Activison bid. Microsoft wants Nintendo, too, or does Nintendo want Microsoft..? I don't care who actually because it's irrelevant. I envision another break up in fact, Microsoft can't monopolize software in general. Microsoft can't stop you from dual booting Linux for free alternatives to Word, Excel and Powerpoint, or sell your second-hand games at a flee market. One corporation can't have ever increased political and religious reach over its consumers in a creative host of applications from blockchain to tetris. Maybe the awe of Nebuchanezar and the gardens of Bablylon, or the humble executives trying from the shadow for a ray from founder Bill Gates, but get over it Executives at Microsoft! A successful product is ok, but not when you take control over as many successful products as possible. So Windows actually isn't successful, it appears now, with global dissemination on the majority of all computers and the backbone of the modern paper-free business world.
I have a heading for a table with a style set to it which was copied from another word file. I set the header as 1.1.1 Identity verification. For some reason when that document is downloaded the 1.1.1 disappears. Any ideas?
Hello! I’ve been using the ios version of Word in combination with the desktop version for a while but recently it seems the ios app doesn’t want to display the dark mode properly. Like the app ui is dark but the document is white, with not option to change the background color.
I’ve tried clearing the cache, uninstalling/installing the app, restarting my phone, etc. Nothing works. It’s kind of a bummer as i like to write at night and the mobile app is becoming to be unusable for me until they fix the bug. But the update never seems to come smh.
Has anyone encountered this issue ? Any tip is welcome.
The email was changed twice by some russian idiot and i cant get my account back the username is Dinnerbone4274 i had money on it too but now i cant even log in anymore and my phone number was unlinked from it
I was trying to log into my microsoft / outlook account and upon loading encountered the “Are your security details up to date” window.
Now I believe this isn’t unusual (if it is let me know), however when I had a look at my recent sign in activity this wouldn’t load.
I signed in with another browser to check the same info to realise it hadn’t recorded the previous sign in at all.
Did anyone ever encounter this or would have an idea of what happened by any chance? Any advice on what to do apart from maybe changing my password?
And there is still an old Mail app that is "blinking" when open to switch to new "look" that is actually a different app...
