Microsoft updates FrontPage beta

It's expected to be released as part of the next version of the Office suite in mid-2001. It provides new tools for Web site creation, control, and management, according to the software giant.

With FrontPage 10, you can create and customise the Photo Gallery feature to display photos and images, Microsoft says. You can select different customisable layouts, add captions, reorder and edit images, and switch layouts. Using another feature, the automatic Web content application, you can also insert content and update a Web site without having to edit it.

Impromptu Management Tools

The software also contains updated site management features to track how visitors use a Web site, which pages get the most hits, and how they were referred to it. You can insert a top-10 list of the most popular pages on the Web site, and view the results according to different criteria. Those criteria include pages visited most often, referring domains, referring URLs, search strings, and visitors. The list is automatically refreshed whenever someone visits the page.

Some other new features enable you to collaborate and create Web sites to store, find, and share information, documents, and Web pages, according to Microsoft. With the SharePoint team-collaboration application, you and colleagues also can create intranet pages on the fly, editing content straight from a browser. You can control the appearance and functioning of your HTML code by reformatting HTML pages, specifying colour-coding tags, and indenting tags.

A new paste feature lets you choose among formatting from the source page, in the existing Web page, or as text, when you paste content from other applications.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
