Windows Compatibility Center

We have less than 15 days until Windows XP reaches its end of support. Organizations and individuals who are currently on Windows XP either should have migrated to a modern Operating system such as Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 or should be in the midst of the migration process by now (at least should have thought about it Smile). Either way one of the main concerns one will have when they think of moving away from Windows XP which has served mankind for a marvelous 12 years is COMPATIBILITY.

Windows Compatibility Center which can be accessed through http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/CompatCenter/Home is a portal where one can check the hardware, software, drivers which they use are compatible with any of the modern operating system Microsoft has released.

This can be used in the initial planning stage of the migration project and will be very useful.

Outlook RT: Missing Icon

I have been actively using my Surface RT, especially after Outlook RT was introduced. Recently I noticed that suddenly the Outlook RT Icon has gone missing and it displays a plain blue tile.

After some research I found that it’s due to an update and it is been fixed upon installing the Office 2013 Service Pack 1.

The following is a guide on how to fix it and get your icon back.
