    Default Office 365 Changes

    Here we go, lets change the name of a known product. It was grrrrrr enough that MS called the online mail Outlook when they had Outlook ( the Program) in Office.

    Now Office 365 has changed to Microsoft 365.

    Here's word Opening:

    While no big changes some are helpful (maybe) with more to be integrated at some stage.

    Interesting. I'm on Office preview on one of my Win 10 partitions and just did an Office update to Version 2005 Build 12816-20006 and it still shows Office 365 on the Word slash screen but my wife's normal version shows Version 2003 build 12624-20466 and it has to new splash screen.

    I am on Office 365
    Yearly sub.
    I do not mind the name change.
    What upsets me is that they no longer include Access in the deal.

    I and millions of other people throughout the world have used Access for years.
    And for the last few years they have hardly done any work on it.

    At the moment my Access is stil going.
    It would be nice if Microsoft made an official announcement.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    My Microsoft 365 personal still includes Access. The Access splash screen showed Office 365 yesterday, but has updated to Microsoft 365 this morning. Everything working as expected.

    Mine has Access - and fully functional. On a PC.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    Phew
    Yes it still works

    I read the other day, that Microsoft don't put it on their splash screens etc, as many people don't know what it is, or have no need for a database.

    I am about to cancel my annual subscription due to Covid-19 caused financial constraints. I presume everything will remain but I will get no updates, such as they are.

    The software will continue to work until such time that your annual subscription is due for renewal, then you'll get another month at most I think.
    After that, you'll still be able to use Word, Excel etc but only to read files, it won't let you edit or create new ones or print etc.
