Outlook-Addition of Clutter
Now you can activate Clutter by dragging items you want sent directly to this folder. Microsoft will now learn your patterns and send your less important items to Clutter where they will be there waiting for you. Make sure to check Clutter from time to time so you do not miss important emails that was inadvertently marked as clutter. To remove something from the Clutter file, move it back to the Inbox folder. Only you can manage what is classified as Clutter.
OneDrive also allows you to create or edit your Office documents online. You can share and co-edit your work using Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote in real time—anywhere, any time, on any device. Simply click on the App Launcher in the upper left hand corner while in webmail and choose the program in which you wish to work. It is always advisable for any cloud service that stores data, including Google Drive, that users keep a secure copy of their data in case something catastrophic happens with their account or stored cloud data.
