Episode 1639

Caller from California

Caller wants to know why her and her sister's phones are so slow. While their husband's are faster. Leo says if both you and your sister are using a specific app, that could be running in the background and slowing things down.

She also has an issue where in Office 365, the font size is so small, she can't read it. Leo says you can change the font. It's in the settings. But the caller says they've taken that option out of Outlook in Office 365. Leo says that can't be. 

Absent that, change the zoom. That'll at least let you read it.

Chet from Broomfield, CO

Chet has a new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 but he can't figure out how to use the notepad with the other apps. Leo says he can by launching the taskmaster. It's not very well documented. He'll need to press and hold the 'Recent' button, which opens everything he's recently opened. Then he can pick it.

Chet is also wondering how he could use Office 365. Leo says he'll have to use the app, but he can also access the website through the browser.

Episode 1246

Bridget from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Bridget got her first Mac and she's stunned that the cost of the apps for the Mac are so much more expensive than the ones for her iPhone or iPad. Leo says that's true, and Mac users are willing to pay it too. Bridget needs something she can use to edit a Word document that won't cost an arm and a leg. She's seen a lot of negative reviews on Apple's Pages. Leo says he likes Pages, but it isn't Word, which is why it gets a lot of negative reviews. Most people only use about 5% of Word's features, though. Pages is the best tool to layout and edit a resume.

Episode 1197

Scott from Newport Beach, CA

Scott says that when using Office 365 with a mobile device, the images within the letterhead end up as attachments instead of being embedded. Leo says that inline imaging in Office365 is a convenience that Microsoft offers, but it's not a standard, and it ends up as an attachment. He can't control that. There is no fix other than to stop using images in email. The only time that an inline image is displayed is in an email reader that supports it, and he can't control what people use. Email is designed for people to use text and it's just best to stop using corporate logos in emails.

Microsoft is pushing everyone to move their data to the cloud, and Office 365 is in the cloud. There may be some advanced features that aren't available, but it's likely that it'll work for Mitan. He can then store the documents at Microsoft OneDrive.

Todd from Sacramento, CA

Todd has always backed up his documents to a flash drive, but since it has failed, he's starting think there has to be a smarter way to do it. He was thinking of putting them on Google Docs. Leo says it's a good solution that's free, but it can be limited. Leo likes Microsoft's Office 365 since it's cloud based, yet documents can still be stored locally.
