Office 2016..

I had the ISO but ‘ISO to USB’ (it’s a utility which used to work back in the good old Windows 8.1 days) couldn’t make a working USB installer. So I reverted to good old DVDs and now I have Office 2016.

It installed straight into the spot that Office 2010 occupied, and I didn’t have to reset email or anything. My guess is that appearance is the major difference, the rest I can work out as I go along.

I like the new, clean, square look, but the font used by default is a little light for my tastes.

If the installation screws up or doesn’t complete, there is an online uninstaller which works well.

Contrary to what some think, you don’t have to be that technical to get the best from a computer anymore, and that is a good thing. All of the crap written about ‘how good the good old days were’ is exactly that. Setting up networks, printers and other stuff was a veritable nightmare. Now, Windows asks you what you want and sets about doing it all for you.

All good, eh.. 🙂
