Tell me what "Tell me what you want to do" is in Office 2016

Although, there aren't many new features in Office 2016, over the years Microsoft has been adding a lot of new features and even has added new apps (e.g., Sway and Planner). So, today is becoming more difficult to track and remember where a feature or a button is located within the app. This is when Tell Me becomes very useful.


Tell Me sits on the tabs menu of every Office 2016 app. To use the feature, simply click on "Tell me what to do", and type what you want to know, such as commands you can't find or options you want to configure.

On the results, you will have instant access to the feature you're seeking. From the results, you can also get more help from the online Office documentation, and you can even jump right to Smart Lookup.
