Heads up!

A feature of Word 2013 is that if you highlight a word and right click to look it in up in the dictionary, you are asked to sign in (or create) a Microsoft account. Also, when saving, an option is SkyDrive, which is Microsoft's cloud, also requiring the account sign in. These accounts are NOT mandatory and are NOT linked to your Google account you get as an ACC student. If you need more help with this, ask a librarian.
