Use Strong Passwords! Microsoft’s Password Checker will tell you how strong your password is.
Did you know? Search engines such as Google and Bing may be more powerful than you think!

  • Enclosing a phrase in “double-quotation marks” searches for the exact phrase rather than matching at least one word in your query.
  • Placing a dash (-) to the left of a word will match sites that do not contain that word.
  • Some engines like Google are also calculators! Simply enter the mathematical expression into the search box and click “Search.”
