On Friday evening, 2/15, IT@Sam will be releasing Microsoft workstation patches. Some of those patches will restart your computer to apply. Please ensure that you are saving your work and logging off of your computer before you leave for the weekend.
We upgraded to Office 2010 over the weekend! You can delete any old short cuts associated with Office 2007 and create new ones by using the following steps.
Go to All Programs > Microsoft Office. Right click on the application (i.e. Excel) and select create shortcut. When prompted choose to save it on the Desktop.
Microsoft Office 2011 for Macs will be deployed starting August 10th and Microsoft Office 2010 for PCs will be deployed over the weekend of August 12th. To become familiar with these new programs you can check out the following information from Microsoft.
