What’s Inside Microsoft Office 365 and What’s New

Can you name the eight components that are included in your Microsoft Office 365 subscription? If you can’t, don’t feel bad, because you’re in good company. Most people can’t name all eight off the top of their heads. And THAT is because most people don’t use all eight components. And even if I gave you the list, you may not know what they all do.
