Convert your Ms Word Documents to PDF's with MS Word

Need to convert a word document that you just created to PDF. you don't need to go to the hassle of opening a separate program to do that, you can convert the document to PDF using MS word but first you need to install a add-in for that, which can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft website. once you have installed the add-in all you need to do is to select the file type as PDF in the save as menu and your word document will be converted to a PDF file.

Here's a step by step guide to do that:

Open Microsoft word and click on the office Icon at the top left corner, in the drop down menu move your pointer to save as and click on Find add-in's for other file formats.

In the resulting window click on Install and use option....

then click on the option Go to the Microsoft Save as....

you will be taken to the Microsoft Download center, Go through the validation and download the Add-in and install it. Now you can save your word files to PDF's, the add-in is compatible with the other Programs in your MS office suite.

Don't want to go through all of this, Fed up with Microsoft Products , Using a Cracked MS Office Suite, then use Open Office it's free.

Firefox 3 Security In Action

The other day while I was moderating some comments in one of my posts I noticed a comment with an embedded link which i have seen earlier but rejected it as spam but clicked on it this time out of curiosity, I was promptly warned by Firefox that it's attack site. the warning even contained an option to know in detail why the site was being blocked.

Firefox 3.5 beta missing back and forward buttons.

Recently when I updated Firefox on my old machine from 3.2 beta to 3.5 beta I lost the forward and back buttons on the navigation bar.

It just needed a few tweaks in the settings to fix it,just right click on the navigation bar and click on customize and drag the forward back buttons from the customize toolbar window onto the navigation bar, and you are done.(Marked with the red arrow, see the accompanying images )

Update: Found out from a friend that in some cases the Home button is also missing, you can use the above method to restore that too, find the home button on the Customize Toolbar window and drag it to where you want it.

If you haven't already got this, you can get the latest version of Firefox from here

Need a solution for any other issues with Firefox 3.5 beta? let me know about it in the comments.
