Thesaurus In Microsoft Office
Microsoft Office has many built in features to help you proofread your document. One of these is the Thesaurus. There are two efficient ways of opening the thesaurus. The first and easiest is to simply select any word, and hit the key combination of "Shift + F7". Or you can right click on the highlighted word and take your cursor down to Synonyms (See below). This will automatically display a list of the top 8 results. Below that list will be the option to open the Thesaurus.
Windows 10 is right around the corner! Microsoft has announced the launch date to be July 29th, 2015. We are excited about this newest release of Microsoft Windows, and we hope you are too. We are currently testing Windows 10 here at 12:34 and look forward to showing you what Windows 10 can do in the coming months. We will be taking an even closer look into Windows 10 at the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in mid-July.
If you haven’t heard yet, Windows 10 will be available free to all Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 customers for a limited time. But you can only get that if you register. So feel free to click the Get Windows 10 link and register your system for the free upgrade. Don’t worry; it isn’t going to install it. This process just registers you for the free upgrade.
Later in the year, we will be providing an in-depth look at Windows 10, the benefits, and how we can help you with the upgrade. Thank you!

Outlook's Clean Up
If you've ever been a part of an email conversation, you know that they can quickly clutter up your inbox. Microsoft Outlook's Clean Up can quickly and easily determine whether or not an email is unique to a conversation, and delete it if it's not. This can be achieved by selecting either a single conversation or an entire folder, and navigating to the home ribbon, and then clicking the "Clean Up" button. Finally, select one of the following three options:
- Clean Up Conversation: To be used only when a single conversation is selected. It will traverse the entire conversation, and if the entirety of an older message is contained within a reply, then the older message will be deleted.
- Clean Up Folder: To be used when a folder is selected, and only the conversations in that specific folder are to be cleaned up. Subfolder conversations are not affected.
- Clean Up Folder & Subfolders: To be used when a folder is selected, and all conversations including Subfolders are to be cleaned up.
