Disable the option to edit SP document library in Desktop Word Application

I want to change my document libraries in Sp Online to allow staff to view, download and open in Word Desktop App, however I do not want them to be able to edit the document once it opens in the Word Desktop Application — only to Save As another name on their PC. I want to prevent them from altering the form in SP in any way. What do I do? Thx. Caulene

Disable Folders in SharePoint Online

G’day Guru’s

It seems it has been a couple of years since this topic was raised, and Sharepoint has changed a lot since then.

I have turned off the ‘New Folder’ option in Advanced Settings for all my SharePoint Document Libraries, however if a user is bringing a document from Onedrive, dragging and dropping folders into libraries or ‘moving’ files, there is still the ability to create a folder. This is really frustrating as I have to keep reminding staff to use the meta-data and views and not create folders. Their old Windows Explorer habits are hard to head off.

I really need another way of preventing folders from being created, preferably at a site collection level.

Thanks for the assist.

Is there a way to disable document tab mouseover popups in Gedit?

I use Gedit in both Ubuntu and Windows 10. In the Windows 10 version, I am trying to find how to prevent the black popups that occur when mousing over a document’s tab in the Gedit editor. The popups show the document’s name and pertinent information such as the document’s codex, etc. These popups just get in my way when I inadvertently mouseover one of the tabs or when I’ve just clicked on something that happened to be laying over the header tabs and the mouse position happens to be on one of them.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

If I disable the list items to display in search results, will it have any impact on indexing?

I am having a SharePoint list with 30 columns. I have added few columns to the “Indexed Columns”. But I don’t want to display any list item in the search results. So I want to disable following option. enter image description here

If I disable above option, will it have any impact on Indexed columns. I mean will there be any exceptions if I use the indexed columns in my queries (REST, CSOM) etc. like threshold error?

Installing Ubuntu: cannot disable fast boot and no partitions showing

I’m trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 (dual boot / alongside Windows) on my Lenovo Yoga 520 with the InsydeH20 BIOS Setup Utility, but I have the following problems:

  1. I cannot disable fast boot. I know that disabling the option is needed for a correct installation, but disabling it in the boot menu has no effect. Turning off the computer and checking the boot menu again yields seeing the “Fast boot” option as active (the BIOS battery should not be dead as other options survive)

  2. The installer sees no partitions. When trying to install the OS, the installer doesn’t show me any partitions to select.

I managed to fix one problem though: I used to get the error “MODSIGN: Couldn’t get UEFI db list” but managed to “fix” it by resetting some keys in the boot menu (now I only get the error “Couldn’t get size: 0x000…”).

I have already disabled fast startup in Windows but it doesn’t seem to have any effect as can be seen here… My only idea for the cause would a broken hybernation file.

I accept any advice, thank you in advance.
