Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) Help to De-Uglify

Question: Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) Help to De-Uglify

Hi there

Whoever designed the base colors for Office 2013 must have been totally STONE DEAF and COLOR BLIND at the same time. I can't believe that comments weren't made before this stuff was allowed out of the door.

There's almost no possibilities to customize the backgrounds or colors and on a large monitor the base white looks really HIDEOUS -- you need a good pair of Sunglasses while working with it.

The only other choice is some type of Grey (shown in screenshot) which looks very similar to "The Fruit Company's Window colour scheme. Still looks hideous and that Blue !!!!!.

Outlook also displays the unread message titles in the most sickly blue (can't seem to change it) I've ever seen.

Before I remove this POS from my computer is there anyway to De-Uglify or customize like I had in Office 2010 with the Black background.

I don't like it opening with a prompt screen before I get the base screen (often needs another TWO keyboard strokes !! -- example for EXCEL 2013 shown) -- I should be able to open it in a Window with the menus just like like Office 2010. It means I now have to make a load of extra keyboard strokes before I actually get a workbook screen to start getting my work done.

I don't want the sign in reminders either -- I don't intend to use Cloud services etc.

Cheers

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) Help to De-Uglify

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No there isn't a way (that I know of) to change it. It was too cumbersome and hogged my Internet Speed with Cloud and whatnot; so I went back to good ol' office 2010. Maybe you should too

Hi there
Unless you have an ACTIVE Internet connection (or other Network Mail Server connection such as Exchange) you will NOT be able to set up OUTLOOK 2013.

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck.

Why on earth did Ms do this --it's not necessary and it is a Hassle for some people who are on the road, have purchased Office 2013 and want to set it up instead of having to wait until they get home.

Also a hassle if they want to prepare company laptop computers with email parameters in advance of the new Exchange email servers being rolled out to the users.

Even if your work policy has mechanisms where the USER can configure the email connections themselves they won't be able to set it up until the Servers are actually in place so you can't set the accounts up in advance.

The box I've shown here is from Outlook 2010. In Outlook 2013 the option is filled in and greyed out so you can't change it.

BTW I prefer and use Office 2010 myself but was trying to help a colleague to set up Office 2013.

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

2: Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Your Microsoft exchange administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance.
Does anyone know what these two errors are referring to and how I can fix it so I can start using Outlook 2013?

I'm an windows 10 insider with a problem with my Office outlook. My Office 2013 ran just fine last year until the middle of November. At that time I could not receive any incoming emails. I could and still can send out going emails and occasionally receive maybe one email a week. Had to revert to web mail from my provider until the bugs were worked out of windows mail, witch I am not very fond of. I've seen better 3rd party email programs then that. It has always bugged me that my Word, Power point, Access, and Excel work just fine but not the Outlook after November 2015.
The one program I uses the most. Today while checking the settings of a theme package, I found out that my Outlook was listed as " Office 2013 Outlook 32 bit." I'm running Windows 10 on my 64 bit Dell as a 64 bit system.
Does anyone have an idea how I can get the Outlook of my Office to run as a 64 bit program or what else I could do to get it to run other than a viewer?

Answer:Office 2013 Outlook 32 bit

Does anyone have an idea how I can get the Outlook of my Office to run as a 64 bit program



.
Office 2010 was the first version of Office to be offered as either 32-bit or 64-bit, previous versions were 32-bit, probably back to version 2000, maybe a bit earlier.

I had FrontPage 2003 on my computer when I got the 64-bit version of Office 2010 and had to first remove FP due to incompatibility with 64-bit Office.

You should have no issues with running 32-bit programs on 64-bit Windows but can't run 64-bit programs on 32-bit Windows.

To change to 64-bit Office you'll need the disc or download for it and uninstall the 32-bit version first.

I have heard of folks that were able to run both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office but probably had to do a Custom Install to specify a different Folder one from the other.

32-bit Windows stores 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files but 64-bit Windows stores 64-bit programs in C:\Program Files and 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files (x86). [Change C: to whatever drive/partition your Windows may be on if different.]

Problems with Outlook itself may require a re-install.

Answer:Office 2013 and Outlook Issues

Have you tried a complete uninstall & install of Outlook, including creating a new account (which creates a new PST file), followed by an FILE > IMPORT of your mail from your old/current PST file?

Make sure you FIRST move your old/current PST file out of the default folder before install so it does not try and automatically import the corrupted(?) PST file again.

If you need explanation or instruction, just ask.

For years I have used Microsoft Office but never used the Outlook part for emails. With Live Mail on its way out I thought that I would try it out. I have set up my accounts and can send and receive with no problems and it is slowly populating all the various Received/Sent/Deleted sections.
I have loads of contacts in the Contacts section but what I have yet to figure out is how to get the To: box to autocomplete the email address as I start to type in the recipients name. I am finding that I have to look up the email address and get that inserted. I am sure that there must be an auto complete but I have yet to find it.
All suggestions gratefully received.

hi guys,

anyone knowing a way (after reinstall of Office 2013 or recreate of an account) to keep the rules active.

Even if i only remove the 2 accounts and reinstall them, i get the message that the rule cannot be executed and i have to create all of them again. Can only do that when a mail enters.

But also all those needed to be redirected to the junk mail (500) ask for intervention, so 500 times moving those to the junk.

it would be nice to one could skip the recreation of all that.

Any ideas are welcome.

Hi there...me again!

My friend is buying a new laptop and is wondering whether to get the Office suite that includes Outlook or not...

He currently has Win XP and Outlook which he uses at his job (at church) which syncs to his phone. He wants a new laptop (which he's found) and it has Windows 8. He wants to know whether his email will work and synchronise to his phone via Windows 8's 'Mail', i.e. can he pull all his emails across from Outlook into that and then can these by sync'd to his phone?

The email server is account server is POP/SMPT so was wondering if this is all possible?

Many thanks,
Chris
 

Answer:Question about Outlook (Office 2013 version)

you usually use IMAP to do that
and it will depend on the email service - nothing to do with outlook really
who do they have there email with ?

Buying office with outlook included is very expensive and there alternative free clients
for example
Thunderbird https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/thunderbird/ is very similar to outlook, and i have used this on various consumer machines replacing outlook when they have upgraded/changed PCs

Hi there
PLEASE TO ANY DEVELOPERS OF SOFTWARE : Don't dumb the stuff down so much that it's impossible to repair it if it goes wrong.

Outlook 2013 won't set up an email account if the TEST SEND EMAIL fails.

This is a really stupid error on the part of the developers -- if you are in some places often your ISP won't let you logon to your email server to SEND email from programs like OUTLOOK (SPAM protection amongst other things) but insist that you use their webmail unless you are actually LOGGED ON to the ISP.

ISP's have no problem with you READING Email while on say a public / other Wi-Fi system but often restrict the SENDING of emails through their servers from such Wi-Fi accesses - you often have to be logged on to your own ISP.

So if you are trying to set up the account while you are staying in a Hotel and using their broadband service it fails -- all I want is to be able to READ email until I can logon at home.

I can SEND via webmail or mobile phone so the stupid install process shouldn't stop me CREATING an account even if for the moment I can't use it for SENDING.

GRRH! -- Don't the developers EVER speak to the END USERS any more before designing some install rubbish system like this.

Showstopper for me this one

Rolled back to Office 2010 -- Outlook 2010 works fine - you can SKIP the test email send --this is what they should allow on Outlook 2013 as well. !!!!!

Good morning,

I recently upgraded from Office 2010 Pro to Office 2013 Pro. However, after the install, all of the office products are showing as <NAME> (desktop) - i.e. Word (desktop), Powerpoint (desktop). Yet, when they are opened, the program is shown as Word 2013, Powerpoint 2013, etc. When I try to pin a file to the taskbar, it pins it under the Word (desktop) program, but when I open that file, it opens in Word 2013.

I am able to pin both Word 2013 and Word (desktop) to my taskbar. I am ONLY able to pin files to Word (desktop), but files only open using Word 2013. Both options open the same program. It is frustrating to have one program pinned just to have files pinned, only to have those files open in another taskbar "tile."
Why are they separate? Is there any way to get rid of one?

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated!

Answer:Updated to Office 2013 Pro: Word (Desktop) vs Word 2013

Hi PrimetimeHero welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It does seem that you have a duplicate set of short cuts to your Office products.

Normally it is best to store your Office product files in your Documents Library, under their various Folder titles such as Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets etc. This keep them all in the one area for easy location.

Check to see whether you have duplicate copies of the actual files & if so make sure they are up to date & correct & delete one of them. Then delete the duplicate Shot Cuts then open your Documents Folder in your Documents library. Then locate a file in Documents such as Word xxx & if you want to have a short cut to it on your Desktop, right click on it & use Send To (create Desktop short cut).

As your information is not really clear, perhaps you could post back with more info on where your various Office files are actually located.

Below is a screen shot of my Documents Folder to expalin what I have been saying.

I am having the exact same problem as in the post "Solved: Can't find Access Query when using Word mail merge." I am using Office 365 so I have the newest versions of both Word and Access.

When I try to mail merge starting with Access (right click the query and export to word merge), it tells me it "Could not find file 'C:\Users\Jeanne\Documents\My Data Sources.mdb'" I have a folder called My Data Sources. And yes, the database I want it to go to is in that folder. Of course the folder doesn't have a .mdb after it. What file is it looking for and why? The Access database ends in .accdb. I found some hint somewhere that that might be a problem, but I can't find how to fix it.

When I start the merge from Word, it finds the database fine, but only tables are listed. The link mentioned in the other post is broken, so I can't check that out.

I feel like I'm saying to my son "I'll see you at home" and he says "I can't find the dog." What dog? We don't have a dog, and I never said anything about a dog!!!

I am getting thoroughly fed up with Access! I am fairly tech savvy and can teach myself to do just about anything in excel just through trial and error or looking it up online, but every little thing I try to do in access gives me all sorts of problems!

They are unable to fix the problem so it won't continue to reoccur. They have reinstalled it on 3 occasions and within 2 months, Outlook is unresponsive. Cannot receive/send any email. All my email I have to get on my iPhone using pop secure server from GoDaddy redirect. It not GoDaddy cause I can see the email if I go to GoDaddy email and they say it is an Outlook issue with Microsoft.....
 

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 or Microsoft 365 Outlook crash

Ok its been 4 days. I guess I am the only one with this problem. Tried Microsoft again and they don't have an answer to their own software issue which reoccurs for me every 3 months........

WinPatrol 26.0.2013 for Windows 8

December 10th, 2012

Since before the release of Windows 8 I?ve had more emails than you might think asking if WinPatrol was compatible with Windows 8. Like most existing programs, WinPatrol isn?t available for Windows 8 RT but it has been running smoothly since early preview versions of Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. There has been some confusion about security related programs so many WinPatrol early adopters have written to be sure we?re compatible.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.

Hello,

A charity is considering upgrading its workstations to Office 2013 from Office 2007.
They have lots of files in the .docx, .xlsx, .xlsm, and .xltm formats that they would need to access on a daily basis.

- Would the upgrade cause compatability problems with working with files created under these above formats?

Hi

OS: Windows 8.1
Office Version: Professional Plus 2013

Every office application I open seems to have a classic unthemed title bar and not maximise correctly. When opening an office application a number of things happen:
The application opens behind any open windows
The application when maximised appears to be open full screen with in an invisible frame
Drop down lists within the application instantly close when clicked on

Here are few images showing what I mean:





Steps taken to try to rectify the problem:Reinstalled Office after having used Revo Uninstaller to remove any left over traces
Rolled back to a time I don't believe the problem existed, thought this may have existed from the start but never realised due to lack of use
Reinstalled Graphics Card drivers
Turned off any OS resizing options
Tried changing the OS theme back to default
Tried changing the screen resolution

I should also mention that this only affects office applications and no other applications seem to have any issues like this.

I know I can get around the issue of it being maximised, as can be seen from the screenshot. The issues with dropdown boxes etc is a pain, any help you guys can give would be appreciated

Answer:Office 2013 - All office applications have sizing and title bar issues

Have you tried an Office repair. This is how to do it with Windows 7, Open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013 & Right Click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options to try. Windows 8 might be different as I haven't tried it.

Office 2016 Installation Routine Deleting Older Stand-alone Apps






I can't say I wasn't warned. I was part way through installing Microsoft Office 2016 on my primary workstation when I got a message that said, "Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016." The error message went on to say that if I decided to continue anyway, my copy of Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 would be removed. Since I had the original disk from when I purchased the software, I went ahead. Bad move. It turns out that when Microsoft says that Visio 2013 won't work with Office 2016, it means it won't even have the chance to work. Any attempt to reinstall the software will be thwarted. The fact that you paid for the software is beside the point. You're basically out of luck. When I went to the Microsoft community forums, which is where Microsoft handles much of its tech support, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Apparently hundreds of people who'd purchased stand-alone Microsoft Office products were affected, and they weren't happy about it.

Furthermore, the problem extended far beyond Visio. Users with Microsoft Project, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer were also affected. Likewise, Microsoft customers who purchased Office Apps that are normally part of Office suites but may have been purchased separately, such as Outlook 2013, were also affected.

Hi there

Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

On my husbands computer we are running Office pro 2010 on Windows 7.I would like to upgrade it to Office pro 2013. But in Outlook 2010 he has like 40 folders with subfolders full of emails.

I just installed a copy of Office 2013 on a Pc (actually Win7) that already had Office 2010 on it. I was having problems getting an Exchange logon working and for some reason, upgrading to 2013 fixed the problem. I am working with 32-bit in both cases.

The copy of Office 2013 is working great. It noted there was a copy of 2010 there and copied all the information from the 2010, essentially doing an upgrade.

Now I'd like to remove the copy of 2010 and I'm wondering if that will destroy 2013 as well, somehow. The only strange thing I noted is I initially went into Mail-32 in the control panel to add the exchange logon and it added it to Outlook 2010 (sure, now it works on 2010...grrrh!), so I had to go into Outlook 2010 and remove the exchange account and then add the exchange account inside of Outlook 2013, which worked just fine.

So, I'm thinking if I uninstall Office 2010, then mail-32 will auto point to the 2013 version of Outlook. And I'd just like to get the 2010 version off anyway. But not if it's going to be a problem for Office 2013.

I've looked around the Internet and didn't find anything pointing directly at this situation. If leaving 2010 out there is the simplest solution, I'm OK with that. Thanks ahead of time.

Answer:Will Uninstall of Office 2010 destroy Office 2013?

I have been in the situation where I bought a new pc that had a trial version of MS Office 2010 already installed. I installed a full version of MS Office 2007 and uninstalled the MS 2010 trial version later with no problems.

This was a case where I had MS Office 2007 installed on my work computer and my company had a site license that allowed you to also install a copy at home. That's why I choose the 2007 version over the 2010 version.

Since upgrading my main desktop to Windows 10, I began having trouble with my Office 2013 installation. I would get the "swirling circle" and the "application has stopped responding" error messages very frequently. I was able to buy the Office 2016 suite for $10 through my employer (Microsoft HUP) and since upgrading the application, I have not seen the error. Of course, I've only had Office 2016 on my PC for one day, so I'll keep checking to see if the problem returns. Has anyone else had issues with Office 2013 and Win10? Thanks!

Answer:Office 2013 issues, upgraded to Office 2016...

In fact Office is working nicely for me in Windows 10. I had PCs with Office 2007 and even with the old Office 2003 and I have not yet had complaints about crashes.

Microsoft offers a FixIt tool, which allows you to do a clean uninstall of the Office 2013 files so that you can afterwards create a clean Office installation again. As an additional ressort, there even is a description of how to manually uninstall Office 2013. I did not have to test it, but that might have helped you as well.

But I can't find were to buy it Also, there is office 365 which is confusing me even more.

And I can find a customer preview when searching for 'Buy office 2013 business': http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/officepreview But what is this?

Is it really available at the moment? Or should I get 365? Any feedback would be great
 

Answer:Office 2013 is it available now?

It is available to businesses through their volume licensing program, but you can't buy it retail yet.

The customer preview is a beta version that you can try before you buy it. It has a limited term (30 days, 60 days, etc), after which it will expire unless you enter a valid license key.

Whether you should get Office 2013 or Office 365 depends on your need. Office 2013 is the next version of the Office suite we're all used to. Office 365 is subscription based and can be installed on up to five computers. It has more cloud services and will provide some syncing between the computers.

This article from pcmag might be helpful if you want to read up on some of the differences.

We're about to upgrade from XP and Office 2002 to Windows 8 (or hopefully 8.1) and MS Office Home & Business 2013 plus Publisher.
My queries are about the 365 edition of Office (which I know includes Publisher). I've done a lot of research, and read glowing information and reviews about Office 2013, and the 365 subscription edition. But everything I've read doesn't answer a couple of simple points. What I really need please, and can't find, is to get some advice from people who have used this.
My questions are these - can anyone advise me please.
1 - Have you got to be connected to the internet to use Office 365 - what happens if I want to type a document in Publisher (or possibly Word), and we can't connect to the internet?
2 - Can I save all the documents on our computer - or has it got to be on Sky Drive?
3 - I'm a fast typist, and expect to see instant results on the screen as I type. If I'm working online, and not with a particularly fast internet connection, how will I get on? Even typing this question into the box on PC Advisor Website, there's a short delay.
Any advice and comments would be really welcome, please. I'm surprised that I haven't seen much about Office 2013 and 365 so far, except for sales talk and reviews.

Answer:MS Office 2013 and 365

1) No

Answer:MS Office 2013

First thing I would suggest is to ask for the file to be re-sent, as it is possible that the file has been damaged in transit.

I have also had occasions where a "Word Compatible" program has been used to generate the document and this is not actually compatible, Re-saving the original as another format Docx or even RTF can sometimes solve this, (I've even seen this happen when using another Word revision to generate the document, though this is rare)

Just had to share. Been working in Office 2010 for the last few years, upgraded to 2013 Pro (because it only costs $10 with the MS work at home price).

At first I hated the new ribbon, and how the apps open, how they look, etc... So I tried as much as I could to make it look like 2010, somewhat successfully.

I only discovered this weekend how much better Excel and PowerPoint 2013 are than the 2010 versions. I spent about 14 hours this weekend creating my own automated analysis spreadsheet for my work, mostly doing logic and formulas looking up values from other spreadsheets then exporting them into PowerPoint charts and graphs for the monthly executive reports for a program I just took over. They guy doing it before me did most of the work by manually manipulating the data, starting with 20-40MB spreadsheets, something that takes a day or so to do every single month. I'm now glad I decided I did not want to go through all that crap work in following his technique...which I could hardly follow anyway.

In the process I realized the formula analysis tools are actually useful...something I cannot say for Excel 2010 or earlier. That was the one big thing that helped make it all work for me, the 2010 version on my work PC is just stupid comparatively. Not only 2013 will tell you there is a formula problem, but it even tells you what part of the formula, and lets you edit it in the troubleshooter directly.

First thing I would suggest is to ask for the file to be re-sent, as it is possible that the file has been damaged in transit.

I have also had occasions where a "Word Compatible" program has been used to generate the document and this is not actually compatible, Re-saving the original as another format Docx or even RTF can sometimes solve this, (I've even seen this happen when using another Word revision to generate the document, though this is rare)

Question: Office 2013

Hello everyone,

I have some issues I can't seem to figure out and hoping to find a solution here. Any help is more than welcome. I try to explain it as clear as posible. All users work in a domain on windows 2008R2 server.

When I would like to open an online image (illustrations I used before in office 2010) I get following error:
“There are some temporarily problems with the server. You are able to work ofline if you would like to insert images from your computer”.
I keep getting this message while others can get there online images.

If I right click on a webpage that is made with word to open it with word I get this message:
“Word is not able to start in safe modus. Would you like to recover?"
Others can open this webpage like this. If I am in word I am able to open the webpage. If I have to do this everytime I loose a lot of time. Recovering word does not seem to work either. In this case I get following message:
“Setup of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 is completed”. I don’t use office 2010 enymore. I use office 2013 now.
I can’t start word in safe modus either.

I hope this is a bit clear for you. I really appreciate all the help I can get.

Question: 2013 office

Hi I just purchased office 2013 through my company for my daughters laptop, can I use this on my laptop to or am I restricted to only one user per purchase?

Answer:2013 office

It has been reported on this forum that installers of Office 2013 purchased via company benefits plans are ONETIME, ONE COMPUTER online installers. So, unless you have Office 365 subscription you are pretty much permanently locked to one computer.

In other words, you get an exe file of about 300-400 KB. This thing has a key embedded in it. Once you will start it, it will download Office 2013 installation files.
This function is a onetime function. Likely, it wont work again even on the same computer.
You won't be able to REinstall your Office 2013 even for this current computer with the very same file.
You would have to purchase some extra backup dvd in order to be able to reinstall it EVEN ON THE SAME computer.

Thus, indeed Office 2013 available via company benefits plan is likely locked to ONE computer and ONE installation on this computer (if you have your hdd wiped and will try to reinstall it on the same computer without extra backup dvd it WON'T work).

I've got a full version of Office 365 from 2013. Earlier this year I had bought a full year of it after my free subscription had run out. Today over the last hour or so, I've been getting along the top in Word: (Non-Commercial Use) (Unlicensed Produced). It is a legitimate product. I am able to log into my account but as soon as I do, I get logged out, but I do get to see the options once I am logged in.

This issue has been bothering me for awhile, short description....

Windows 7 and 10 sharing files via workgroup with one gig switched network, using local accounts. Initial opening and MS Office file (.docx, .xlsx, etc.) takes anywhere from 15-25 seconds. Opening another file with the same extension is instantaneous, pops right up.

Closing the the app and immediately opening even the just closed file takes 15-25 seconds to open. And again, opening another file with the same extension is instantaneous.

Locally opening just the app on Windows 10 results in the same, the message states "Starting application...", "Loading plugins....", etc. Opening a new window of the same app is quick, it's only at the initial app start there's the delay.

All MS Office apps configured to start with a blank document. I've tried deleting history, modify default folder, etc., but no use. All Office apps are blocked from accessing the internet, they have access to only the local network. That didn't help either.

Interestingly, Visio 2013 does not do this, it's pops right up, regardless if the file is local or remote....

The system has a one gig Samsung 850 EVO drive, 16 gig memory and i5 3350P quad-core CPU. While the CPU is getting old, it is not the source of this issue.

Any suggestion for eliminating the initial delay for MS Office apps?

TIA..

Good morning, I am sure the answer to this question is around but I just cannot find it!!
We have a new windows 8.1 pc and want to install office 2013. On looking at the details it states 'one pc' use.
My question is can it be used independently by multiple user accounts on the one PC?
And will the second account user need a Microsoft account to use it?
many thanks
Paul

Answer:office 2013 on new pc

Have a look at this link. Doesn't look as other users need a Microsoft account to use it but a lot of the apps won't be available. I have all the users on my PC log in via a Microsoft account instead of a local one.

I received the message that it is not possible to instal the 64 bit version until the 32 bit version is removed.

Hello,

I have uninstalled office 2010 few days ago and did a clean installation of office 2013.
But windows update is showing updates for both office 2010 and office 2013.

I have uninstalled office 2010 using Revo uninstaller so there are no traces
Am I missing something.

Answer:Office 2010 and Office 2013 both updates available

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

Cheers
jimbo

I am running Office 2013 on a cleanly installd SDD that has only ever had office 2013 installed on it. Any idea why windows update is giving me Office 2007 updates, specifically

(KB947318)(KB2817330)(KB2878233)(KB2878233)

I should decline these, right?

thnx

Answer:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Answer:Office 2010 or Office 2013 ? Help Me Decide

Can't say much to features but I don't like the flat washed-out look of 2013. Approx 60-70% of my clients that installed 2013 went back to 07 or 10. The others like 2013. Did notice an issue with 2013 Outlook when it was first released - IMAP accounts constantly syncing and going through bandwidth like crazy on a few accounts. Would hope that bug has been fixed by now though.

Your 2010 files should work fine with 2013.

Following on from helping a neighbour to decide as to the purchase of a new PC, I looked at my computer needs/usage and have decided to have a complete clear out of current PCs and rethink as to what I really use. To that end I would pose :
1) SSD drive - where it is indicated that they are far faster than SATA are there any drawbacks apart from the price and what would be considered a minimum size? I currently have only 89GB for all of my existing programmes.
2) Choosing a new Microsoft Office package, I currently use Word, Excel, Outlook and Access. There are seemingly two options:
Office for Business although does not include Access - for £219
or
Office 365 which does include Access for an annual subscription of £59.99.
It would seem that you take on the subscription and if you decide to cancel the annual subscription then you are required to remove the programme from your PC.
From a previous posting it seems that others use Outlook for all of their contacts, so I could consider using Outlook for that purpose and forget Access.
Any thoughts on any of the above?

Answer:Rethink on completely new PC -SSD - Office 365/Office 2013

compumac: only that, classically, you'd configure your SSD to host your operating system and programs, and keep your data on a 'regular' drive. That way, you can have a relatively small - and inexpensive - SSD. It's only really the operating system and programs that benefit from the much faster access an SSD provides.
