Word Viewer in Office Online

If you have a complex Word document (ie. it contains a lot of pictures and/or tables), I have noticed something interesting about its ability to do this.

I had a complex document, which is meant to look like this:-

Full doc for screenshot without Skype logo

….. but in Office Online it automatically opens up in “Edit Mode” where it looks like this – nothing like the original one !

Corrupt Word doc online

If you need to edit it – and have Word on your PC – you can click on “Use Desktop PC” from the menu shown below:-

Word Online options

If you DONT’T HAVE Word on your PC – You will only be able to view the document. But at least you will see it nice and clearly in “View Mode” – allowing you to confirm the file’s contents and confidently share it with others.

Royal Mail scam

Was almost taken in by a cleverly designed “Royal Mail” scam. A text message came from a company I recently posted mail to asking me to pay £2.99 so they could get it.

However, it took me to a FAKE Royal Mail website called “Royalmail.to”.

What really confirmed its being a SCAM was the request for my Date of Birth – which is certainly not needed to pay a postage underpayment !!

This scammer didn’t make a huge effort (in my view) to disguise this being a scam, by sending a link to a website ending in .to. Also in the page design, as shown below:-

The genuine Royal Mail website has a header like the following which shows on every single page:-

 

Their fake page was very basic !!

To learn more about spotting “dodgy emails” (or texts/instant messages), read this post at Can you spot a fraudulent email?

If you have any doubts about a text message, instant message or email you receive – please feel free to message a picture of it to enquiries@pcgp.biz and I will review it for you.
