April Insider Slow update heads out to Office Mobile apps for Windows 10
Microsoft is now rolling out an update to the Office Mobile apps on Windows 10 for Slow ring Insiders, bringing along a few new noteworthy features. Excel is probably the biggest beneficiary of this update with its new collaborative editing feature, but Word and PowerPoint have received some love as well.
Here's a look at the release notes (opens in new tab) for Office Insider Slow build 17.8067:
- Collaborative editing (Excel): Work with others at the same time in your workbook.
- Open more files (Excel): You asked for it! You can now open files that contain ink.
- Insert recent links: Easily attach hyperlinks to recent cloud-based files or websites, and create meaningful display names for people using screen readers.
The April update for OneNote also appears to be rolling out to Slow ring testers after having hit the Fast ring just a week ago. Here's a recap of what's new:
- Audio notes: Record a meeting or lecture and keep the recording as part of your notes.
- Easier insertion of files and pictures: Quickly insert files and pictures by dragging or pasting them into your notes.
- Capture your screen: Use the Win+Shift+S keyboard shortcut to capture a region of your screen and then paste it into OneNote or any other app as an image. (Requires the Windows 10 Creators Update.)
- Drag and drop: Keep everything organized with a quick drag and drop of pages or sections into different sections or notebooks.

- The 5 best laptop for students
- The 5 best laptop .... and then it's just about how much stuff you can think about, when the whole list is finished, start again. This exemple is true for laptops but also for wearables, gaming computers, keyboards ... Oh, and one last thing, "INCREDIBLE DISCOUNT on this (insert any windows phone sold more than 4 years ago) case that will protect your device !!"
And then tablet makers in OEM firmware make it seem to be hacked and when updating Windows activation is lost.
