In Pictures: 12 enraging Office 2013 flaws -- and how to fix them

A step-by-step guide to exorcising the new demons in Microsoft Office 2013

Make Outlook search the current folder only

Problem: In Outlook 2010 and earlier, if you type something in the search box, up above the list of mail, Outlook performs the search on the contents of the current folder. Great. But in Outlook 2013, for reasons known only to certain sadists in Redmond, if you’re looking at your Inbox, the search extends to all folders in the current mailbox. Which means you may end up accidentally deleting mail from the Deleted Items folder, for example, or replying to something you shouldn’t. I’ll raise my hand here and share your pain.

Solution: Click File, Options, on the left click Search. Under Results / Include Results Only From, choose the radio button marked Current Folder.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
