We've been getting some good feedback about our blog.  Some people tell us they're learning things for the first time and others have said that we're refreshing their memories about things they have forgotten.  I hope you'll join a growing number of people who are reading our blog every day.

We hope you have a great week.

Question of the Week


Question: "Sometimes, when I open a Word document, it's says "Compatibility Mode" at the top.  Why am I getting that message and should I be concerned?"



When Office 2013 came out, many new features were added to the various programs.  These new elements gave the Office user the ability to do many more things (too numerous to list here).  These changes carried over to Office 2016 and now to Office 2019. 

If you open a document that was created in an earlier version of Office, the new version will automatically open the older file in compatibility mode.   In other words, it opens the file as if you were still using the older version of Office.  If it opened the file with the new features of Office, the file would not look like it originally did and wouldn't work as it used to.


As for being concerned, there's no reason to be concerned - Office is doing what it should be doing!
