For those of us that are using Windows and Microsoft Office for years, the launch of Office 2013 created some pretty big confusions.

Sometimes, you only need some text bits and you aren’t going to print a potentially long email conversation only to obtain the desired text part on paper.

Microsoft Office 365 (initially called Office Online or Office Live) was actually around for some years too, but – with the release of Windows RT for Surface & other mobile platforms – it will become more and more popular. Some Office 365 subscriptions also include the desktop Office application versions, such as Outlook or Word – to avoid further confusions, in this article we refer to Office 365 as the web based version.

The Detect & Repair tool was supposed to check your Outlook installation and data files for errors / corrupted data. Read more →
