It is simple to use and has very powerful options to manage your emails which are not available on the webmail of the email service providers. But most of the people don't delete the unwanted emails and the garbage emails keep getting collected in Outlook. This increases the size of the Outlook data file (PST/OST) and once the data file becomes too large in size, Outlook refuses to open it and it starts showing an error that data file is too big, delete some you the old emails to be able to see the contents of the data file.
In this situation, Outlook doesn't allow you to see any of the emails and that's why you get stuck in a situation where you can't delete any of your emails and end up losing data. But to overcome this situation, you can make a simple registry modification to be able to see your emails and even, you can store more emails in the same data file.
Follow the steps given below to do the modification in Windows registry to increase the size limit for an Outlook data file:

What You Should Use Apart From Antiviruses To Protect Your Devices

What You Should Use Apart From Antiviruses To Protect Your Devices
An antivirus program is a security instrument that consistently ransacks your device to eliminate all forms of malicious software or files including viruses and malware. Every individual who is cybersecurity conscious typically has an antivirus installed on his/her system.
Nonetheless, cybersecurity professionals advocate the use of other digital security tools to use alongside an antivirus. This is because antivirus is not sufficient lone protection, and it leaves your computer prone to several other risks like phishing, ransomware, and internet snooping.

Limitations of Antivirus Programs
Antivirus software does not possess the capability to protect your internet traffic. If a hacker gains access to your router or you’re connected to a hacked public Wi-Fi network, all your information would be monitored by the cybercriminal.
Also, antivirus programs detect malware based on the signatures of viruses that have been discovered. If a new kind of malware is downloaded on your system, the antivirus would not be able to flush it out. By the time an update would have been released to protect you from the virus, the damage would have been done.
Your device can also get infected via adverts containing malware. Some cybercriminals insert malicious codes into protected websites. Once you visit these websites, the malware could slip into your unprotected network, beating your antivirus’s security system.

Extra Digital Security Tools you can Use

1. Virtual Private Network
A VPN also referred to as a Virtual Private Network, is an implementation that enhances your device’s internet security. What VPNs do is prevent all entities, legal or malicious, from snooping on your internet activity. VPNs perform this function by encoding the data requests sent to your device and received from your network.
A VPN also protects your personal information by modifying your IP address. IP addresses reveal data about a person’s location. Your IP address would change to that of the VPN server you’re connected to.

2. Sandbox
A sandbox is a tool that segregates software, restricting that program from destroying other files on your computer. It creates a highly controlled environment where the program’s code can be run. It does this by limiting the program’s permissions.
If damage arises from a program, it would be restricted only to that program.

3. Firewall
A firewall is a tool that protects your computer by restricting strange data packets. Through this process, the firewall prevents malware from getting into your system. Firewalls are considered the first line of security between your device and the internet.
Operating systems typically come with their firewalls. You need to activate and update your firewall settings. You can use a software or hardware firewall or both, depending on your preference.

4. Cybersecurity Education
The tool that is called cybersecurity knowledge is the most important tool of all. Before a cyber-threat gets into your system, it requires human action. Knowing the dos and don’ts of cybersecurity will go a long way in keeping malware out of your system.
If you run a business, educating yourself on cybersecurity would be highly beneficial. While other businesses get attacked by ransomware, yours would continue to thrive and in the process, outrank your competitors.
There are tons of cybersecurity courses on the internet that you can go through in your free time.

Wrapping it Up
A lot of individuals harbor the misconception that having an antivirus on their devices is enough for digital protection. There are several layers to cybersecurity and antivirus programs are considered some of the last.
This is because an antivirus while efficient in its way, cannot completely protect your computer from malicious software.
To protect your devices, you can use a VPN, educate yourself, use a sandbox, and activate your firewall.

How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices

How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices
Most of the computers these days are shipped with Microsoft Office pre-installed license. Some of the manufacturers offer Microsoft 365 Home or Personal 1-year subscription and some of them offer Microsoft Office 2019 Home and Student, Home and Business and Pro versions. For most of the users, the activation process is hassle-free. They just have to launch Word in the machine and right after launching, they see the banner which shows that the machine came with pre-installed Office license and after clicking on Activate button, they are asked to log in with their Microsoft account and after signing in, the license gets redeemed with their Microsoft account and Office gets activated on the device.
But there is a big confusion among the users and the OEM technicians about the activation process of Microsoft Office in the OEM devices. These devices are shipped with pre-installed Office 365 applications which are usually MS Store apps or installed with Office Deployment Tool. Now, this is where the confusion begins, the devices which are shipped with Office 2019 licenses, they also have Office 365 applications installed in them and to redeem the license of Office 2019 also, we have to use the Word application which is already installed with the package of Office 365. But out of the confusion, users uninstall Office 365 from the computer and I have seen that not only users, even the OEM support technicians also ask the users to uninstall Office 365 from the machine which is completely wrong. If you uninstall Office 365 from the machine, you might lose your Office 2019 pre-installed license also which is bound in the machine through the Windows registry.
How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices
So no matter what license you've got with the device, never uninstall the pre-installed Office 365 applications. Redeem your pre-install license with the Word app which got installed with the Office 365 suite and you would be able to redeem your license for Office 2019 successfully. Once the redemption process is completed, you can install the latest updates of Office and the pre-installed Office 365 would be changed into Office 2019 automatically after updates are installed. If the installation doesn't get changed automatically, you can uninstall Office 365 and installed your redeemed product through https://account.microsoft.com/services
Now some times, it happens that most of the users miss to redeem the license after launching Word and then the banner disappears from the machine. When they relaunch Word or any Office application, the pre-installed offer banner doesn't come up. To fix this issue, you would need to run the OEM Office Activation Troubleshooter from the link https://aka.ms/diag_97275 and running this troubleshooter would reset the pre-installed license to its default state. After running the troubleshooter, if you would launch Word, the activation offer banner would again pop-up on the screen which you can use to redeem your pre-installed license.
I hope this article clears your doubts about the activation of the pre-installed Office in OEM devices. Keep visiting for more tips and tricks.
