Outlook Hanging with Surface

After months of struggling with Outlook hanging up inexplicably I found something that looks really promising.  I had thought it was because I’m connecting to several Exchange servers.  It was particularly bad if I switched between the Mail and Calendar windows after Outlook had been running for awhile. My solution was to open up my Calendar in a second window as soon as I opened Outlook, but that was really tedious to have to remember to switch windows instead of using the shortcuts at the bottom left of the Outlook window.

What’s the difference between OneNote and OneNote 2016

I’m a huge fan of OneNote and I use both versions. I came across this article that should help if you use OneNote, or are considering it. If not… Why NOT?

What’s the difference between OneNote and OneNote 2016


OneNote 2016 (as well as OneNote 2010 and 2013) comes with the Office suite and is available as a free download from www.onenote.com. However, you might have noticed another version of OneNote on your Windows 10 device that’s simply called “OneNote.” This new app, built from the ground-up, works great with any PC, tablet, or smartphone running Windows 10.

We have new updates for Surface 3 devices.

Starting this month, you may also notice a new file naming structure for these updates. With more and more customers choosing Surface for their organizations, we’re making this change to provide a consistent customer experience across multiple release mechanisms (like Windows Update and DLC). You’ll start to notice this name change this month on some devices, with others to follow in the coming weeks.

Click the headings below to go to the specific location for your device on the Download Center. At the Download Center, click Details then click + More to see all available downloads for the device. For all devices you can follow the similar deployment process that is used for Surface Pro 3 described at Surface TechCenter.
