Power Query in Excel is a powerful data transformation tool that allows you to import data from many different sources and then extract, clean, and transform the data. You will then be able to load the data into Excel or Power BI and perform further data analysis. With Power Query (also known as Get & Transform), you can set up a query once and then refresh it when new data is added. Power Query can import and clean millions of rows of data.
You can freeze one or more rows in an Excel worksheet using the Freeze Panes command. If you freeze rows containing headings, the headings will appear when you scroll down. You can freeze columns as well so when you scroll to the right columns will be frozen.
You can remove or hide gridlines in Excel worksheets to simplify worksheet design. By default, gridlines are displayed but do not print. Gridlines are applied to entire worksheets or workbooks, not to specific cells. If you hide gridlines on one worksheet, it doesn't affect other sheets in the same workbook.
You can combine first and last name in Excel in several ways – using the CONCATENATE operator, the CONCATENATE function, the CONCAT function, the TEXTJOIN function or Flash Fill. These functions are often used to combine text in cells but you can also combine text with spaces, commas, dashes or another character. It's common to combine first and last names that appear in two columns into one new column. Some functions are only available in newer versions of Excel but the CONCATENATE operator and function are available in all versions.

You can insert or type e with an accent mark in PowerPoint using built-in tools or keyboard shortcuts (including Alt code shortcuts). The letter e can be inserted with an accent in both upper or lower case in text boxes or placeholders on slides, the slide master or layouts. The following are common accents in upper or lower case – È, É, Ê, Ë, è, é, ê, or ë.
You can fade a picture in PowerPoint by drawing a rectangle shape on top of the picture and then filling the rectangle with a gradient from opaque to transparent. This technique is often used to fade an image into the background of a slide. Since the rectangle is placed on top of the image and then text may be placed on top of the rectangle, you may need to reorder the objects.
You can now lock an image, shape or other object in PowerPoint. Objects can be locked in Normal View or Slide Master View. Only PowerPoint 365 users can lock objects to prevent moving and resizing. This is helpful if you want to select and move other objects on the slide or prevent others from moving or resizing an object. You can lock items using the context menu or the Selection Pane.
