The other day someone was trying to send a PowerPoint presentation over email but our mail server has a send limit of 10mb and the file was bigger than that so obviously our mail server was kicking back her email. She asked me if I knew how to trim down the file size so she could email the thing. Here is how you shrink a PowerPoint presentation almost by half.

I just helped someone that was having this problem in Excel when opening multiple spreadsheets from the network. this is the error she was getting: the problem is that she had created some shortcuts to the network drives, and thus increasing the length of the path to such files. according to Microsoft only 218 characters are allowed on file path lengths ( that includes that path and the file name, this seems primitive to me ) and that’s why such error is displayed.  the solution is to use a network drive ( if you have the permissions to create one ) to shorten the path to the files so the file path length is shorter than the 218 characters Microsoft allows. I hope that help someone.
