If I create a presentation in PowerPoint 365, can it be edited in Google Slides (https://gsuite.google.com/products/slides/)?
Can Google Slides edit  a PowerPoint file?
Can you export a PowerPoint file to a format editable in Google Slides?
Can you add charts using  Microsoft PowerPoint Online?
For instance, let us say that you use Google Chrome to login to office.com or portal.office.com and you open the Online version of PowerPoint, can you use a Google Chrome extension to add a chart to a PowerPoint file?
Does a Google Chrome extension exist that will allow you to add charts to PowerPoint Online?
I am using a Dell tower desktop with an XP operating system. I use it mostly to run several programs to write and print simple things, as well as some pretty elementary stuff. As you may imagine, it works just fine for such things.

I also had in hooked up to the Internet for very limited, infrequent use and again, no problems.

Now I am rearranging some things and have moved the computer to another area in the same room, with everything the same except for the addition of a new monitor. I did have to use an older connection to get the monitor  video into the computer, but no problem.

BUT when I plugged my Internet cable into the  SAME router, I could not get an Internet connection (using Google Fiber). Tried a second cable with the same result.

I can't figure this out. Surely a new monitor is not to blame for this situation?

Hi Experts

My client has Google Analysts for 2 primary domains, and I have a custom carts in other sub domains.

How do I go about and send purchase info to Google Analytics? Do I need to setup the Product IDs within Google? And, is this even possible considering I'm using sub domains.

The intention is to keep the existing code.

Can anyone help me with that? thanks
One of our clients for whatever reason is not able to access their website from inside their network.
I tried whitelisting their domain on the router and their firewall.
I also created DNS forwarders on their server to point to their Website IP address.
I also put in a static DNS for google on one of the clients network settings. and still could not open up the website.

I'm running out of ideas!!
Hello all, I have been asked to re-brand and create a brand new website for a company that is currently unhappy with their site and the lack of traffic it brings.  Here is the situation, they want a new hosting company to host their new site, using the same domain, using Wordpress.  I understand how to create the new site using Wordpress and implementing Google Analytics, but I have never migrated a site from one host to another host.  Also, their existing site was not created with Wordpress CMS.  So my real question becomes, how would I migrate their website from the existing host to Bluehost Wordpress CMS?  Or is it possible to leave the old site on the old host and create the new one on Bluehost Wordpress and then effectively cut over from one host to the new host?  I would assume you know what I am asking now and I apologize for my lack of knowledge and experience with this situation.  Thank you very much!  Please let me know if you need more information from me.
Hello, I have a user that has g suite account and another pop3 account within outlook 2012, I had to set up the g suite account up using the google sync app so it would have its own inbox and pst file and the other pop3 account had its own mail file and inbox. My problem is today the mail from the pop3 account has started going into the g suite account mailbox, the default data file is the pop3 main pst file. I have tried to switch it to the g suite data file and back with no luck.  Any suggestions on what going on... I thought about setting up a new profile and start with the pop3 account but I can't do that with using the google sync app for outlook, becuase the google sync app creates it own profile.
Hello all, I have built new websites for a few companies that were their very first website, so no prior hosting company or SEO efforts.  In fact, they have only been Wordpress sites hosted with Bulehost.  No I am being asked to build a re-branded website for a company that has had an existing website for years and it showing up pretty well on organic searches from Google.  The domain needs to stay the same.  I have the ability to build a new site for them but I don't know the process in which you switch from the old site to the new site or if they will want to stay with their existing hosting company which is Windstream Communications, LLC.  The other question I have is can I replace their existing website without destroying their SEO position that they have attained?  Is it common to switch hosting providers when a company rebuilds their website or more common to continue with the same hosting company?  Can you guys please help me ascertain what I need to ask from them and what I need to do?  Thank you so much.  I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by this right now.
Hello the experts,

This is my first post here, please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

Explaning my problem is simple : I use shortcuts a lot, for various reasons, in various places. Each time my PC is changed or reinstalled (which happens quite often with our IT department, if the problem is not easily solved, let's just reinstall the machine !) it's a mess. Some shortcuts are lost. Some shortcuts don't work. Some shortcuts just vanish, pouf, empty file. Question : what could I do to avoid that as much as possible ?

I know the problem is much more complex than the question and it depends what shortcuts we're talking about, what I'm trying to do with them, and so on. But I don't need help on a very specific issue I need to solve. I would like to get global advise, internet references to "shortcut best practices", tricks & cheats, you see the idea.

Then I will study and apply all that next time they reinstall my PC (again...). Then I will probably come back and bother you with my unsolved issues. ;)

A few things that I should probably tell you :
- My machine is an pretty old mobile PC, dell intel core i5 blabla
- My files are ALL either on Onedrive perso, either on Sharepoint
- We use Chrome and are pretty much stuck with it
- My main habit with "local" (but on Onedrive) folders is right click on the file/folder I need on duplicate spots, create shortcut, move the shortcut whenever I need it
- My main habit with internet shortcuts is bring it from…

What are good alternatives for Google and Chrome these days, with focus on security and safety?
Brave Browser, using add Blockers (which ones)?

I am trying to renew our certificate for our Exchange 2016 server through EAC.  However, when I try to create the request file, i keep getting the following error;

Error A special Rpc error occurs on server IQEXG01: The friendly name is too long.  The maximum allowed length is 63 characters

Here is the path I am inputting:  \\XXXXXXX\c$\request.REQ (left out the server name, but that is the number of charaters).  I also created an open share on the c: called 000 to replace the C$, and still, the same error.

Tried a quick google search of this error and I can't find any reference to this specific error.  Not much experience with certificate renewals, so any help would be appreciated.

When I search with few bad words or 2 letters like as, ef, etc., in Google of my website, all were Japenese spam texts with wrong URL's.  The website is built with the latest Laravel 5.6 and running in a 1&1 host. Earlier the website was just HTML based. No specific CMS was used earlier.  I have referred here too, Google Docs   Followed those steps with Google Search Console as well.

How do I prevent this permanently?   When I scan my site, it says no threats or viruses found.
Hi All,

I want to access google drive folder and its files from application, .NET or PHP.

How could I do it?

Thank you.
we have a single exchange mail server which for the most part is working OK. However, we have one client who is trying to email us, and receiving bouncebacks that the account does not exist.

we have an mx record pointing to our mail server as follows :-


On the bounceback we are told :-

mx.google.com rejected your message to the following email addresses:

On checking further I notice that we have acquired several google mx public dns records

Our main or primary dns record is still correctly set at mail.domainname.co.uk

My question is where did all of the google mx records come from, and why this one particular client is having problems getting mail to us when the main mx record points to our mail server correctly? All other mail is reaching us correctly.

Any advice much appreciated.

Say, I have installed Skype on an Android Blackberry KEYONE. It has duplicated my Google Contacts, made an additional contact for Skype and many blank Google Contacts.
Is there a way to reverse this?
