    New Office 2016 help needed


    Hi, I'm new and hope someone can help with some questions about my Office Professional Plus 2016 (64-bit) running on Windows 10 Professional Plus (64-bit).

    I was previously using Office 2010 and can't seem to find a way to make the documents display as they used to. My problems are these:

    How do I increase the text size on the ribbon at the top of window without having to resize the whole computer?

    When I load a document I used to view it in Times New Roman size 12 font, but doing it now it looks much too small at 100% and I'm having to increase the window to almost 150%. Does anyone know why this might be?

    I now always work on documents in the web layout option as the display option I used to use has disappeared. But it doesn't show the page numbers in status bar at bottom of window. Can I get these back?

    I'll be back again tomorrow, so many thanks if anyone can help.

    Liz R.

    :)

    "To register Adodb.dll in the GAC, follow these steps:
    • Click Start and then click Run.
    • In the Run dialog box, type the following command, and then click OK: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\gacutil /i C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies\adodb.dll"

    Typing the first command as mentioned in the site gets me this message. What do i do now??

  3. Office 365 or Office 2016


    Under info for the new office listing on My Visual Studio it states.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 (x86 and x64) - (Multiple Languages)
    To obtain the product, follow these steps:

    Step 1: Get your product key by clicking the ‘Get key’ button on the right.

    Step 2: Go to the Office website by clicking the ‘Get it now’ button.

    Step 3: Enter your 25-character product key and continue as directed on the site.

    Released: 9/23/2015

    And for the discontinued it states.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 (Discontinued)
    Info
    Keys
    Office Professional Plus 2016 (x86 and x64) - DVD (English)
    No additional details are available for this file.

    Released: 9/22/2015
    SHA1: 213A8A0F8849516704101CB6C49F6A027B0D6D5F
    File name: en_office_professional_plus_2016_x86_x64_dvd_6962141.iso

    I'm thinking option one is going to be my only option. I'm fine with that as long as I can get Outlook to work with my ISP's pop3 e-mail. Last time I tried that with the new 2016 install I could not get it to work, no way no how. All the same settings that work with the ISO install?

    EDIT: I should mention, for me as far as I know, neither of these options are a subscription. They use two different keys but they are perpetual one time activation licenses. I only ran the new download briefly though, as I could not get outlook to work. I bailed and went back to what works.

    New Office 2016 help needed

    Office 2016 programs are not grouped under Microsoft Office 2016

    Hi,

    To address your concern, you can compress the view of your Microsoft Office programs inside a single folder in the Start Menu. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
    • Right-click on a blank space, click New > Folder.
    • Rename the New Folder as Microsoft Office 2016 (or any name that you want).
    • Highlight all the Microsoft Office 2016 programs.
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + X (make sure that all programs are highlighted).
    • Double-click Microsoft Office 2016 folder (the folder that you've created).
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + V.
    • Wait until all the programs are moved to the new folder.
    • Check the Start Menu if the settings are saved.

    Let us know the outcome after you perform steps above for us to assist you further.
