    Features of Microsoft 2016

    Word 2016 Microsoft is introducing two versions of Word 2016: a feature-rich desktop version and a lightweight, touch-optimized version. The desktop version looks and feels a lot like the previous version (Figure A), but Microsoft is introducing some new features, such as real-time co-authoring.

    The touch-optimized version of Word is currently available only for use on the Windows 10 preview. It contains the essential features that users most commonly need to do their jobs, with a clean interface that's ideal for touch screens, small screens, or for anyone who is intimidated by the desktop version's exhaustive feature set

    Excel 2016 As is the case with Word, Microsoft is releasing two versions of Excel. The desktop version (Figure B) is much more feature rich and will likely be the best choice for hard-core Excel users. It includes new capabilities, such as business intelligence integrated directly into Excel and some data loss prevention features.

    The touch-optimized version of Excel (Figure C) is similar to its Word counterpart, in that it's designed to be lightweight and includes only the most commonly used features. Although more capable, this version of Excel reminds me a lot of the version that is included with Windows Phone 8.1.

    PowerPoint 2016 The PowerPoint 2016 preview doesn't seem to have changed all that much from the previous version, either .The most noticeable change to the interface is the addition of the Tell Me bar, a Cortana-like interface that will be shared by all of the Office 2016 applications. It allows users ask Office how to perform a particular task.

    Sway Microsoft PowerPoint has been around in one form or another for what seems like forever. During that time, it has become more refined, but it's still basically just a slideshow tool. In Microsoft Office 2016, Microsoft is introducing Sway (Figure I) as a next-generation alternative to PowerPoint.

    There are two main differences between PowerPoint and Sway. First of all, PowerPoint is linear. A PowerPoint presentation has a first slide and it has a last slide and usually, a number of slides in between. In contrast, Sway is designed to be more organic and allow for more free-form presentations.

    The other major difference between PowerPoint and Sway is that Sway is designed for Web content. A Sway presentation can include photos, YouTube videos, and items from Facebook, Twitter, OneDrive, etc. Some have argued that Sway is like OneNote because it aggregates information. However, OneNote is more of an organizational application, while Sway is designed for presentations. OneNote 2016

    On the surface it is difficult to tell what, if anything is new in OneNote 2016 ,beyond the enhancements that exist for all the Office applications. Web searches for OneNote 2016 features have as yet failed to reveal anything significant. I admit that I don't use OneNote often, so it is entirely possible that new features exist and I simply have not found them

    Although the desktop version of OneNote seems to be similar to OneNote 2013, the touch-optimized version has an intuitive interface that's easy to use. The touch version is more full-featured than the version that was included with Windows Phone 8.1, but it doesn't contain all the features of the desktop version.

    How to sync your iPhone photos to your Chromebook using Google Drive

    These days, almost none of us have a standalone digital camera. We capture moments almost exclusively with smartphone cameras, and most often, those smartphones are iPhones. The iPhone has long been lauded for the quality of its camera, with every generation improving its specs. Additionally, Apple has provided photo management in iCloud and the Photos app. But, not all iPhone users are Mac users as well. Some folks use PCs, and rely on photo transfer through iTunes. However, some users have turned to Chromebooks Google's thin client, browser-based machine as their main computer. Apple and Google may be mortal enemies, but your iPhone and Chromebook can work together. Here is how to move the photos on your iPhone to your Chromebook using Google Drive. Start with Google Drive Begin by downloading the Google Drive app from the Apple App Store. If you are new to the iPhone, the App Store is the native blue app icon with an "A" in a circle. In the App Store, use the magnifying glass to search for "Google Drive" and the app you want will be the first result. Once you have the app downloaded, tap on the app icon from your home screen to open the app. It's important to remember that Google Drive is more of a management tool than one for content creation. If you want to create or edit documents in Drive, for example, you'll need to download the separate Docs app.

    With the app open, tap on the red circle with a "+" in the middle of it.

    After you tap the red circle, you'll be presented with a few different options. Since we are focusing on photos, we are only going to go over the two options related to photos. In the menu that opens, you should see an "Upload" option and a "Use Camera" option.

    Since we are talking about getting photos off of our iPhones, select the "Photos and Videos" option. At this point, you may be prompted to allow Google Drive permission to access your photos. You must tap "OK" for this upload to work. Now you will be presented with your on-device photo albums to choose from. Select the album that holds the photos you want to upload and then tap on the photos you want to upload, keeping in mind you may upload multiple photos at a time. Selected photos will have a blue check mark on them. When you are ready to upload them, tap the grey checkmark in the upper right hand portion of the screen. If you wish to upload photos directly from the camera, after tapping the red circle, select the "Use Camera" option. After selecting this option, you will likely be prompted again, but this time to allow Google Drive permission to use your phone's camera. You must select "OK" to continue. With the camera open, you will take a photo just like you would using the normal camera app. Once the photo is taken, you can either choose to take another photo or use the one you took. If you choose "Use Photo," your photo will automatically be uploaded to Google Drive.
