Unless your needs are quite complex, which isn't usually the case with smaller manufacturers, you should be able to get by with some login/permission knowledge, and setting up a maintenance plan to dump backups to the disk, for the rest of the backup system to grab.  The more complex stuff, such as the schema and queries are usually going to be managed by the ERP system itself.  However, there are often some opportunities to add functionality to the ERP system with some SQL and C# programming knowledge. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 823 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 87 Consumer Tech 27 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 80 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 29 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

A: Yes. This is like a Google Account or an Apple ID.  If you do not already have a Microsoft Account created, then you will need to create one before installing Office.    Q: How do I Install Office 2019? A: Go to www.office.com/setup. Sign in using a Microsoft account and enter in the product key. Type in the product as it appears on the back of the activation card. If a message that the Product key is invalid appears, recheck the activation card again and make sure the activation key is fully revealed. Once activated the system will confirm that the product has been activated, click install to install Office.   Q: Do I need to upgrade from an older version of Office to Office 2019? A: No, however Microsoft may stop supporting the product or may have already stopped supporting it. This means any issues found in that program may not be fixed. Also, any new features that are added to the 2019 software would not be available in older versions.   Q: What Is the difference between Office Home and Student 2019 and Office Home and Business 2019? A: Office Home and Student 2019 Suite comes with Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Office Home and Business includes the previous three applications but will also include Outlook for email.    Q: Can I use the Office 2019 without Internet access? A: Internet Access is needed initially to install the Office 2019 product. However, once the program is installed onto the computer, internet is not required. If internet is not accessible, the offline Office installer is located on Microsoft’s website. More information on this is found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-the-office-offline-installer-f0a85fe7-118f-41cb-a791-d59cef96ad1c     Q: Can I Install Office on a New computer if I previously installed it on a different system? A: Yes. After uninstalling office from the original computer, sign into your Microsoft account. Once signed in, go to the subscription and services tab. Look for the Office 2019 product and click install.   Q: Does Office 2019 Come with OneDrive? A:  Office 2019 does not come with OneDrive Storage. Only Office 365 comes with the OneDrive 1 TB of storage space. However, 5 GB of OneDrive storage is free with any Windows 10 computer.   Q Can I have office 2019 installed on multiple computers at once? A: No. Office 2019 products are only able to be installed and activated on one computer at a time. If you need a product that can be activated on multiple computers, we recommend using Office 365 Home instead.   Q: Can I import old .pst files into Outlook 2019? A: Yes. To import the file, go to the file menu in outlook and select the option Open and Export. Select the option to import/export. Choose outlook data file. Select Replace duplicates with items imported and select Next. Select Include subfolders and Import items into same folder in and select Finish. This process may take a little time depending on the size of the .pst file you are importing.   © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article How to Set Up Windows 10 on a New PC - Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker How to Set Up Windows 10 on a New PC - Micro Center If you have never owned a Windows 10 PC or are just setting up the operating system for the very first time on a new Windows 10 PC, then you may not be used to the new setup process Microsoft has created. Don't worry though! This guide will walk you through it step-by-step. NOTE: This guide was created using Windows 10 - version 2004. The first thing to do is to select your region. Most of you will want to click United States, then click Yes Select your keyboard layout. Click US, then click Yes If you want to add a second keyboard layout, you are welcome to do that now. Most users will not need this so you will want to click Skip. If you plan to connect to the internet through Wi-Fi then you will have the option to do that now. Click on your Wi-Fi network, click connect, enter the password, then click Next. If you are already connected to the internet with an ethernet cable then Windows will likely skip this step. This is an important step. Even if you intend to use the PC for work, you will NOT want to select Set up for an organization unless you are connecting to a domain. Nearly all of you will want to select Set up for personal use, then click Next You will have a few options here. If you already have a Microsoft account and you know the credentials, then you can enter that here, click Next, then continue to step 6. If you do not have a Microsoft account, then click Create Account. If you do not want to create a Microsoft Account, then click Offline Account. To continue, there are two ways to set up your account, a Microsoft account or an offline account. Option 1: Setting up Windows 10 with a Microsoft Account If you wish to create an offline account, please skip over the steps to "Option 2" below. Type in your email address here or you can click Use a phone number instead and enter that, then click Next Once you enter the email address or phone number, you will need to create a password. After you enter the password, click Next Next, you will need to enter your birthdate. Once you click in the box below Birthdate and a drop-down menu will appear. Set the month, the day and the year then you will need to click the Checkmark below this drop-down menu. After you click that checkmark, click Next Since you are using a Microsoft Account, you must create a PIN. You will then be able to use either the password or your PIN to sign into your PC. On this screen, just click Create PIN Next, you will need to type the PIN in twice to confirm it (You can include letters and symbols in your PIN by checking the box below, but I do not recommend doing this). Then click OK. After you created your PIN, you should now see Choose privacy settings for your device.  If you have chosen this option, please skip over the steps for "Option 2" Option 2: Creating an Offline/Local Account To set up Windows 10 without a Microsoft account, you can create an Offline or Local account. On this screen, click Offline Account.  Next, click Limited experience in the bottom left corner. On this next step, you will just need to type in the Username then click Next Now, you will need to create a password. Once you type it in, click Next You will need to type the password again to confirm it. Then click Next Next, you will have to set up 3 different security questions for the account. Just click the dropdown arrow and enter the answer to the question in the box below. Then click Next and you will be able to set up the next security question. After setting up the security questions, you should now see Choose privacy settings for your device.  Final Steps: Finish Setting up Windows 10 After you created your PIN, you should now see Choose privacy settings for your device. All of these settings are a matter of personal preference, you can read each one and decide if it is something you will want.  Once you have these set to your preference, click Accept. Now, you have the option to sync your Windows 10 devices if you have more than one. It is entirely optional so you can click either Yes or No. Next, Windows will ask you if you want to sync your android phone to your PC. Again, this is an optional feature, so you can type in your phone number and click Next or you can click Do it later in the bottom left corner to opt-out of this feature. The next screen will ask if you want to set up Cortana. Cortana is a virtual assistant developed by Microsoft (Just like Siri is the virtual assistant on an iPhone). You can click either Accept or Not now After this, you should see this screen below. If you do, then your Windows 10 PC is now set up! Just wait for Windows to finish setting up your PC and you are good to go. It will take you to the computer's desktop screen with your icons and start menu once completed! © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article Need Help With My First Build — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Help Choosing Parts Need Help With My First Build YUE ✭ February 3 in Help Choosing Parts I'm still in the research phase of my first build, I would love to get better suggestions on my build since I'm not confident it would be a good put together.

And secondly, isn't installing windows 10 free with the install media? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 9 If you're able to budget for the additional cost of the 2.5" SSD then I would recommend keeping it, however, you still do have an M.2 SSD, which you could use at your boot drive. It would be much faster than the 2.5" and exceedingly faster than the HDD that you have. However, the HDD offers much less cost for the amount of data that it can hold! I'm not sure I understand your second question so forgive me if this isn't the correct answer. I don't know what you mean by install media. The Windows 10 licenses do have a fee. You can avoid the additional cost of purchasing a USB version if you already have a USB drive that you could copy windows, and then install the OS to your computer that way. Here's the DVD version, which includes a serial key and DVD. Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit OEM DVD - English and here's the USB version Microsoft Microsoft Windows 10 Home 32/64-Bit - USB Please let me know if I misunderstood your question! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook YUE ✭ February 16 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/27490#Comment_27490 Thank you so much, I feel set with what I want for my build now, I think ill get a little more up saved for the SSD and hopefully, I won't need to upgrade anything in it for a while. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 16 Happy to help!

It is linked to your Microsoft account and will automatically back up your data whenever it can. While OneDrive can be a useful tool, it only provides 5GB of free backup space and you have to pay for extra. Additionally, if you have very large amounts of data to back up, it can really hog your bandwidth and make your internet or computer run very slow while it's attempting to sync your data. Whatever the reason may be, if you don't want to use OneDrive there are a few different things you can do to either stop if from automatically backing up data or disable it entirely.  Pause Syncing If you actively use OneDrive you can temporarily pause it if you need to free up bandwidth or resources on your computer. If you're having issues with videos stuttering, or perhaps having lag when playing games, and OneDrive is actively backing things up, that could be the reason why. To pause OneDrive, we need to open it first.  1. Locate the OneDrive icon on your taskbar, typically found at the bottom-right corner of your screen. The icon looks like a cloud, and should be located near the volume, internet and date/time on your taskbar. OneDrive may also be in the Hidden Icons menu, designated by the ^ icon on your task bar. This should also be located in the same area near the volume, internet and date/time.  2. Click the OneDrive icon, then click More then click Pause Syncing. You can pause for up to 24 hours, or to resume manually you click the icon again, click More and then click Resume Syncing.  Unlink your Microsoft Account Unlinking your account will remove it from OneDrive and stop any information from being backed up to it. Any information that has already been backed up to the account will remain there, but no new information will be added unless you sign into OneDrive with your account again.  1. We need to click the OneDrive icon again as we did before, click More and now select Settings from the menu.  2. Go to the Account tab and click Unlink this PC. You'll be prompted to confirm your choice. Click Unlink Account. Disable OneDrive on Startup Even if your account is unlinked, OneDrive is still set to automatically launch on startup by default. You can change this through OneDrive Settings or Task Manager. 1. Click the OneDrive icon, click More and go to Settings. This time go to the Settings tab and uncheck the box that says "Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows," then click OK.  2. To open Task Manager, right click the Start button, typically found at the lower left corner of the screen and then click Task Manager. 3. Once you have Task Manager open, go to the Startup tab and click Microsoft OneDrive, then click Disable. If you cannot see any tabs or categories across the top, make sure you click More details on the bottom-left corner to have the full view of Task Manager, then you can adjust these settings. Uninstall OneDrive Finally, on some versions of Windows 10, you can even completely uninstall OneDrive. Right-click your Start Button and go to Apps and Features. Scroll down until you find Microsoft OneDrive. Click it, then click Uninstall and click Uninstall again.  You'll receive a User Account Control prompt, click Yes to allow changes and then OneDrive will finish uninstalling from the computer.  That's it - now OneDrive is removed from your PC. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article Windows 11 First Impressions - One Week In — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › What's Trending Windows 11 First Impressions - One Week In SeanM admin October 12 in What's Trending By Ben Price Check out the Big Differences Between Windows 10 and 11 for even more Windows 11 updates! Released to the public on October 5th, Microsoft Windows 11 has now officially been out for just over a week. After having spent some time hands-on with the new operating system, I’ve got more than a few first impressions. I’ll be diving into everything from Windows 11’s new features, the biggest changes made, and quality of life improvements in order to decide whether or not Windows 11 is a worthy upgrade over Windows 10. If you’re someone who’s on the fence about Windows 11, then continue reading. The Big Changes and Improvements in Windows 11 While Windows 11 doesn’t make any drastic changes to the Windows operating system, there are many smaller changes made here and there that can make a world of a difference. Mostly aesthetic, Windows 11 is an improvement overall. Let’s dive into the various changes and improvements made.  A New Look Right off the bat, the first thing that users will notice upon updating to Windows 11 is its brand-new look. Opting for a cleaner, more modern look, Windows 11 almost feels reminiscent of Apple’s OS. Compared to Windows 8, which changed things majorly and left many PC users confused with its overhauls to classic Windows OS, Windows 11 is a lot more subtle in its changes. These changes made in Windows 11 are small, but go a long way in improving the OS’s overall design and look.  An Updated User Interface Windows 11 doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel like Windows 8 before it, but instead focuses on refinement of things that already work very well. Another big change made with the update is the overall user interface: The Windows Start button and apps have been shifted from the left side of the screen to the center. And while this took a bit of getting used to, I honestly prefer this alignment better than that of Windows 10.  The Windows Start button looks especially different; Microsoft has done away with the Android-like color box design used in the Windows 8 and 10 Start Menu, and replaced it with a far more basic-looking menu. And while it isn’t as flashy or feature-filled, it doesn’t need to be. Windows 11, in many ways, sacrifices flashiness for functionality.  Widgets Another change made in Microsoft’s new OS is the addition of Widgets to the home screen taskbar. For those who don’t know what they are, Widgets provide easily accessible information to users. Information like weather, sports, upcoming events (via a Calendar), and the latest news are all common Widgets.  Previously appearing when opening the Windows Start button, Widgets have now been designated to their own separate icon. This change is greatly appreciated as it not only helps to remove clutter from the Start Button, but also allows for all of your PC’s widgets to reside in one single, easily accessible place. This is nice for those who regularly use Widgets, and even better for Windows 10 users (such as myself) who never use them, and prefer to have a more organized home screen with less clutter.  Microsoft Teams Another change that I quickly noticed was the addition of Microsoft Teams to the main taskbar. For those not familiar, Teams is Microsoft’s version of Zoom or Facetime. Personally, I can’t stand Zoom and rarely use FaceTime so I found this to be a great addition. Microsoft Teams is nothing new, but Windows 11 simply does a better job of integrating the software into the UI.  Better Game Performance On Microsoft’s website, the company states that one of the biggest upgrades made with Windows 11 is improved gaming performance. And while I didn’t have the ability to compare two different gaming setups (one with Windows 10 and the other with Windows 11), I was still able to run many of my go-to titles in the new OS, and noticed some improvements.  The biggest upgrade that I noticed in regards to games wasn’t necessarily to the gaming performance, but with loading times. Games appeared to boot up much faster, and the Xbox app appeared to be snappier and much more responsive.  Better Optimization Windows 11’s faster performance and better optimization doesn’t seem to be limited to just games; I was surprised to find that pretty much all of the applications ran slightly better on the Windows 11 OS. Everything from the Microsoft Office apps to Firefox ran slightly faster and smoother than on the previous OS.  There is one big catch, however; your experience is going to depend on your PC build, with Windows 11 optimized to work with more modern computers (and phases out many older setups). If your computer is particularly dated, then you will likely have a less than ideal experience as the new OS is much more demanding. Worst-case scenario, you may have to upgrade your computer before using Windows 11.  Better Microsoft Store To be frank, I’ve really enjoyed using the newly redesigned Microsoft Store; I always found the older versions to be rather clunky, with a dated UI and an overall unappealing look. But the Windows 11 version of the store is hugely improved, from both a visual and functional standpoint. While I didn’t use it extensively, I saw massive improvement from just my very brief experience with it. The differences between the two versions are night and day, and yet another example of how Windows 11 has improved over the past OS.  New Sound Effects While it may be a tiny change, another aspect of Windows 11 that I noticed immediately was the new sound effects. Iconic sound effects from plugging in and unplugging USB devices to even the boot-up sounds are different now, for better or for worse. And while the new sounds threw me off initially, they’re starting to grow on me.  How Does Windows 11 Feel to Use? In my time using Windows 11, I found the OS to be very pleasant to use. As previously stated, the new OS feels faster, smoother, and snappier to use compared to Windows 8 and 10. I felt very at home with Windows 11. Windows 11 creates an intuitive operating system that is easy to use. Everything feels very cohesive, and more simple, than ever before.  It Might Take Time to Adjust to While I largely believe that Windows 11 is a big upgrade over Windows 10, this doesn’t change the fact that it will take time for many users to adjust to the said changes. While I love the new Start button and how much more simple it is, I still can’t help but forget where it is half of the time. Since Windows 10’s release, I’ve become accustomed to the Start button being on the right side with more features available upon clicking it and it has confused me.  This no doubt will be the case for many early Windows 11 adopters; even though Windows 11 offers an objectively cleaner and more intuitive UI, it will take time to adjust to. But I’m confident that users will eventually catch on to it, and prefer the OS over older ones.    How do I Get Windows 11? If you already have a Windows 10 machine and are interested in upgrading to the new version, it’s completely free and takes mere minutes to do so. Users need to keep in mind their hardware, however, as not all systems will be able to run Windows 11 properly. Windows 11 is the most demanding OS yet, and old hardware might struggle. The alternative is picking up a new computer with Windows 11 already installed and ready to go, like the Lenovo Legion 5. No hassle updating and no worries about running into compatibility issues – just turn it on and enjoy Windows 11!  Conclusion All in all, Windows 11 feels like a worthy successor to Windows 10. While there aren’t a ton of major changes, there really didn’t need to be. All of the additions and changes in the new operating system help make it feel more accessible and polished and feels great to use.

I am keeping all storage, Windows 10 pro. I only use graphics local to setup and service the machine and have been using the onboard. I am looking at the following  and perhaps a new power supply. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=7e4767f3-0515-4b51-8aab-8be1721a60c1 It seems I will need to purchase a graphics card?? Am I better off going with Intel? Plenty of used cards online local or should I consider something  new? Listening to all suggestions.  Thanks, Gordy 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 Hello @Gordy! Welcome to the Community.  If you go with a Ryzen 5 3600 you'll need to supply some kind of graphics card because the 3600 does not have integrated graphics. If the only thing you need a graphics card for is to just view your screen, then you can go with something really basic like a GT 710, or if you have an older card that still works you could potentially use that. You also have the option of switching to a Ryzen 5 3400G instead. You lose a couple of cores vs the 3600, but gain integrated graphics on the processor so no extra video card required. Honestly this is probably the option I'd go with. No matter what you choose it'll be a pretty significant upgrade over an i3 Haswell.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Gordy ✭ May 2020 Thank you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 821 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 87 Consumer Tech 27 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 80 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 29 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Q: What is Microsoft Outlook? A: Outlook is a program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite that not only is an email client that allows you to manage and organize your emails, but also is a personal information manager that can keep track of contacts, tasks and events, and calendars if you desire. Q: Why would I use Microsoft Outlook? A: If you have multiple email addresses, you can use a program like Microsoft Outlook to have them all show in one place. Outlook as an email client also provides many other features for organizing your emails that your webmail may not provide. Q: How do I get Microsoft Outlook? A: Microsoft Outlook is included as part of an Office 365 subscription or a Microsoft Office Home and Business license. It can also be purchased as a standalone product from Microsoft. Q: Is this the same thing as outlook.com? A: No, outlook.com is a Microsoft website for email used to check your email for addresses ending in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com and @msn.com. Q: What email accounts can be used in Microsoft Outlook? A: Any POP3 or IMAP account can be added to Outlook, as well as Microsoft Exchange email accounts. Q: What are POP3 and IMAP? A: POP3 and IMAP are email protocols that are used by Outlook and other email clients to connect to the email server used by your email provider and access your emails. Q: What is the difference between POP3 and IMAP? A: POP3 will download emails from the email server onto your device, and then delete them from the email server. IMAP leaves emails saved on the email server unless you deliberately save them to your device. IMAP is the recommended option if you need to access your email on multiple devices. If you have multiple devices accessing the same email address but they are all showing different emails, they are probably configured as POP3. Q: Are the emails saved on my computer? A: Yes, depending on which protocol configuration you use, emails can be saved in an Outlook Data File known as a .PST file. Q: Do I have to have an email to use Microsoft Outlook? A: Yes, Microsoft Outlook is used only to connect to email servers to send and receive messages. Outlook could still be used for contacts, calendars, and tasks without specifically using email, but features would be minimally available in this manner. Q: How do I get an email to use in Outlook? A: There are many free email providers on the web such as Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, and more. Most internet service providers have their own emails they provide as well. Q: Why can’t I add my account to Outlook? A: Many providers may have options to prevent third party programs from connecting to the server, especially if you have two factor authentication enabled on your email. Check your webmail account settings or with your email provider, you may need to enable access by third party or less secure apps or generate a special app password to add your account to Outlook. Q: Is Outlook secure to keep my information safe? A: Yes, there are methods to use a secure connection to the email server, such as SSL or TLS, however it is up to the email provider if these methods are supported. Q: How often or quickly does email arrive in Outlook? A: This is configurable in send and receive options. You can set Outlook to automatically receive emails after a certain amount of time has passed. Some accounts like Exchange accounts are immediate, regardless of the setting. Q: Does Outlook allow me to organize my emails? A: Yes, you can setup special rules to move emails to different folders, these folders can be added with IMAP to match what is on the server, or you can create local folders on the computer that do not show anywhere else. Q: Does Outlook have signatures? A: Yes, you can define different signatures for each email account. Q: Do calendar events synchronize? A: No, most IMAP and POP3 accounts do not send calendar information, however if you use Exchange accounts or use a Microsoft Email such as @outlook.com or @hotmail.com, then the calendars can sync. Q: I have a lot of contacts, do these show up in Outlook? A: No, contacts are not synced automatically unless you have an Exchange account - including newer outlook.com accounts. However, you can create contacts and new lists that work in Outlook or import contacts from other sources. Q: Does Outlook offer any junk or spam protection? A: Yes, these options are separate from your email providers options, and only apply to Outlook. Q: If I block someone in the junk settings does that stop them from emailing me? A: No, the block list in Outlook only sends messages to the junk folder, however most email providers have a block option on their website that would stop this from showing up in Outlook altogether. Q: Can people on my Safe List still send me junk or spam? A: Yes, the safe list stops Outlook from sending their emails to the junk folder, regardless of the content of the message. Q: What happens when I delete an email from Outlook? A: IMAP synchronizes the email deleted so it will show in the server’s trash folder as well until permanently deleted, but for POP accounts, it will no longer be on the server. Q: Can I connect the same account to multiple computers that have Outlook? A: Yes, you can connect your email to multiple devices that have Outlook. Q: Can I add backgrounds to my emails? A: Yes, Outlook offers a stationery setting in the options to customize the background colors. Q: What are Digital Signed Messages? A: These are messages that are signed with a certificate to prove the identity of sender. Q: Do I need to Digital Sign my messages? A: No, this is an optional feature to help identify you as the person sending the message. Q: How do I obtain a Digital ID? A: Digital IDs require a certificate which can be obtained from a Certificate Authority - many providers are available online. Once you have the certificate you can add it to Outlook’s trust center settings. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article 2019 pc build — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Your Completed Builds 2019 pc build Kiodiekin ✭ March 23 in Your Completed Builds most parts are from microcenter. i still need to edit my footage 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 821 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 87 Consumer Tech 27 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 80 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 29 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
