There are many reasons why you may need to install another language in Microsoft Windows. You may need to use a font in another language or you may have a larger need. Whatever the reasons may be, it’s easy to add another language. We are using Windows 10, but the process should work similarly in other versions of Windows.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Click the Start menu in Windows, or press the Windows key. Doing so will bring up the Start menu, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click on the Settings button, as shown highlighted in red in Figure 1.
  2. Start menu in Windows 10

One of our subscribers just reached out to say, The slides in my PowerPoint are not showing the animations I have set. I double-checked and all animations have been set properly. So why don’t the animations play?

Call it a coincidence, but we recently also heard another question, I have detailed animations set up on my PowerPoint slides, but can I disable the animations without deleting them altogether? I need to preview a bunch of these slides for non-animated stuff, and I have to view all animations which is taking so much time.

In this post, we are reviewing iSpring Suite Max, which is the current release of iSpring Solutions’ eLearning suite of applications. We have already reviewed iSpring Suite 9.7 in the past. This time as well, my contact at iSpring Solutions Inc. was Maria Varankina. Thank you for coordinating, Maria. We also featured Slava Uskov of iSpring in an exclusive interview about new features in iSpring Suite Max.

Download and Install iSpring Suite Max

To begin with, I uninstalled iSpring 9.7 from my system. Next, I installed the new iSpring Suite Max product, as shown in Figure 1, below. Do note that although the setup routine mentions iSpring Suite 10, the product installed is iSpring Suite Max. Both 10 and Max refer to the same product.

Also, you or someone else may have added more users. We will learn how to explore existing users and add a new user in this post. In our next post, we will look at editing and removing users.

Follow these steps to explore this walkthrough:

  1. Log in to your Synology device, and you will be presented with the DiskStation Manager interface, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click the Control Panel icon, shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
