Ease of visibility of the Ribbon in Word 2007 and Excel 2007
As installed the colour intensity of the Ribbon in Word and Excel 2007 is
very faint and it is not particularly easy to read. Is there some means of
increasing the colour intensity to make it easier to read?
I have fairly good sight but still have difficulty. Unless the colour
intensity can be adjusted it must be virtually impossible for people with
poor sight to read the details on the Ribbon.

We're setting up our 1st dedicated DPM 2010 PC to backup standalone host with
2 Hyper-V VMs. Very simple configuration. Host Server total diskspace is
1.2TB, each VM is 500GB, 90% free and unused diskspace so far.
1. Roughly how much storage disk space do we need for our dedicated DPM PC?
Our backup needs are simple, we don't need n copies or n days, we just
need a mirror-type backup of the Hyper-V server host and VMs, maybe to run

You could use Edit Links on the Data tab to see what the names of the linked

try Bill Manville's Find Link utility although I don't know how it works

we have Word 2003 but we really like the Styles that come with Word 2007. Is
it possible to export these Styles and use it in Word 2003? And if yes, how
can i do that.
In Word 2007, click the Home tab of the ribbon. In the Styles group, click
Change Styles | Style Set | Word 2003. To make this choice the default,
click Change Styles again, and then click Set as Default. If/when you are
prompted to save the changes to your template, choose to do so.

Does DPM 2010 allow you to backup the host server? I want to backup our
exchange Server and install DPM on the same server. Is this possible?
No this is not supported. Backing up data sources present on DPM are
very limited to bring the DPM itself in a usable state in case of any
disasters or in case of any corruptions in DPM database. DPM do not support
protecting datasources like Exchnage/Sharepoint present on DPM server

is too smart and changes accounts when she forwards account so it looks like

You set her up as a DELEGATE and it is doing what you told it to do.

You don't. Outlook is an e-mail client, not a web browser. If you want to

QuickLaunch shortcut, the the shortcut under the Start menu, or by running

However 90% of the time the rule causes a conflict betwee Outlook and
