  2. Remove the incredibly annoying and time wasting Welcome Back popup.

    I see that requests to remove this idiotic "feature" from the Windows versions of Word were made long ago and apparently not acted upon. So migrating a feature that almost all users hate to Android makes no sense. It is this type of arrogance and non-responsiveness that make Microsoft so hated

  3. EDB to PST Converter

    Most exchange veterans who’ve had to deal with any sort of anomalies in the exchange database would recognize EdbMails – the pioneer recovery platform for all things exchange recovery, be it exchange database corruption or shutdown errors.

    EdbMails has recently released an update to its data recovery tool, let’s have a look at what it brings to the table :

    The deep scanning algorithm that EdbMails uses has been further enhanced to give a quicker and more responsive recovery experience than before.

    User interface changes to make the recovery process more seamless and rather straightforward so that even non technical…

    I would like to be able to create a table of content when using word on a chroomebook. When writting essays in school as a student, we are often asked to create a table of content but this is for the moment not possible on a chroomebook because the online version dosent support all functions. Chroombook is used by some students around the world and many children in schools in sweden. But with a chroomebook you dont have the same functions as a windows and mac computer. I think it could be nice if everyone even thoose with chroombook could…

  5. Recent files should only link back to the original and not make a copy that can be opened even if the original has been wiped.

    This is a security risk.

    I have a word doc created on my PC that I transfer to my Smart Phone Galaxy Note 8. I encrypt this word doc because it is sensitive. I unencrypt it with another app. This makes a copy word doc. I open that with Word for Android.

    When I'm done. I close Word for Android. I then wipe the unencrypted copy. I search my phone with another app to make sure no unencrypted copies exist.

    I recently discovered that even after the above procedure, it is possible to open the file by using the RECENT…

  8. playstore

    This word always comes up as a single word in the android world but when you type it in word it marks it as a wrong spelling just wondering how to make it not do that besides just skip it through spell check I guess?

  11. Unable to delete word file on an android device, when its opened for just viewing nothing else.

    Let me explain what is going on.
    When you open a password protected Word or Excel file on Android Word or Excel,
    It opens the file and then dumps an unprotected version of that file deep into Android's file system.
    Later, when you delete the original on your phone, the file still shows up in your Android Word or Excel 'recents' list and you can just tap it and open it. It is quite disturbing. It has a long file path usually users>>data>>0 ...

    The only way to delete this copy is to go to Androids app screen, select Word…

  13. VIEW Margin Width

    It would be great to be able to set VIEW to Margin Width rather than Page Width. The white space beyond the margins is wasted precious real estate, especially on small devices like phones and small tablets. Yes, you can stretch the text, but scrolling becomes awkward, and the VIEW defaults back to page width as soon as you do any editing. It would also be useful to have more control over the text window and the space dedicated to showing the touch keyboard while editing. I cannot see tiny rendered text if my Samsung Note is in portrait mode,…
