What’s a certified refurbished Amazon Device?

You can save money on many of the Amazon sponsored devices by buying “certified refurbished”. Certified Refurbished Amazon Devices work and look like new and are backed with the same limited warranty as a new device. Used Amazon Devices sold by Amazon Warehouse are fully functional pre-owned units that have been tested and verified by Amazon to meet the specified product condition. Used Amazon Devices do not receive a manufacturer’s warranty but do receive a 30 day money-back guarantee from Amazon.

How you choose to make a PDF file from Microsoft Office can make quite a difference to how the PDF file looks and behaves…

There are two ways to convert a document to the PDF format:

‘Save As’ to save a version of the original document to a different format. Modern Office lets you make a PDF directly. This choice is sometimes called ‘Export’ or ‘Convert’.

‘Print’ which intercepts the printer output from a program to make a PDF file. Instead of a paper page coming out – a PDF file is created which looks like the paper pages. Both Windows and Mac have in-built options to do this from any program, not just Office.

The Exchange Team didn’t go into many details about the new Office release, unfortunately. In fact, they only mentioned it in a single line, which reads as follows: “Microsoft Office will also see a new perpetual release for both Windows and Mac, in the second half of 2021.”
