Why Windows 10 isn't really free: The subtle new world of built-in costs.

Even if you get the free upgrade, everything from Cortana to Xbox has its ways of making you pay.  Windows 10 isn't really free. Realizing why and how it isn't really free can help you understand why installing the operating system on 1 billion systems by 2017 is such a big deal for Microsoft-and why this version of Windows is very different at its core than Windows 7 and its predecessors.

How to Recover an Unsaved Microsoft Office File.

You've just closed an Office document and accidentally clicked Don't Save. Or maybe Word crashed or your laptop lost power before you remembered to save what you were working on. We've all felt that pain, but all is not necessarily lost. By default, Office applications automatically save temporary backup copies of your documents as you work and there's a good chance you can recover them.
