    No. If you decide to purchase "Softmaker Office", you will need to purchase the Mac and Windows versions separately. Make sure you try the Free Office version first.

    The more backups you have the better. So yes, make a Time Machine backup and also a SuperDuper clone. That's called insurance. :) You can run OnyX later after everything is up and running okay.

    The Auto Save feature for Apple Apps is turned on by default and can not be turned off. But I agree, most users are not even aware of it nor how to use it.

    Welcome to our forums.

    I'm surprised an Apple Store even agreed to diagnose your 15" early 2011 MacBook Pro since it's considered vintage by Apple. I guess you got lucky. :)

    That's from MS direct, not from the Apple App Store. The reseller he quoted above sells the Office 2019 stand alone version for less than what MS sells it for. However, as I pointed out to him...
