3 Essential Apps for Graduate Students Using the Windows 10 Platform

Looking for the must-have apps for graduate students and young professionals? Here are 3 Essential Apps for Graduate Students Using the Windows 10 Platform.

One of the biggest complaints so many graduate students have today is that their lives have become so busy as to be literally unmanageable. They have opted to study for a graduate degree online so that they can continue working in their field, but that also poses problems.

Fortunately, if you are using the Windows 10 platform on your computer, there are a number of apps which can help you regain control of your life. Here are 3 essential apps you may wish to take advantage of.

(1) One Drive

The one question most people ask is whether they can use apps like One Drive for Cloud storage without having a Microsoft Account. They ‘usually’ think that they must have Microsoft Office in some form but actually, it isn’t necessary to have the Office Suite, but it is necessary to have a Microsoft account.

If you have Skype or an email address from hotmail.com, live.com or outlook.com, then the good news is, you already have a Microsoft account.

The beauty of having One Drive Cloud storage is that you can work on literally any computer or mobile device and access your work no matter where you happen to be! Just save it to the Cloud from home and open it again from the Internet café or your workplace if needed. Lunch breaks are perfect for doing a bit of work on that thesis when a thought suddenly emerges!

(2) Outlook

One school which is ranked highly for distance learning in graduate business administration is Suffolk University Online in Boston. The reason for mentioning this is that when you are already a business professional with limited time, you want a school that gives you a strong background because every moment is precious. You can’t afford to waste time with insufficient knowledge that will hinder your progress later.

Outlook will be an invaluable aid when studying, even at schools like Suffolk University because it will help you get and stay organized. You will be able to use it for everything from keeping a calendar of events to sending notifications when an event is upcoming.

From email to scheduling, Outlook is an absolute must. Used in conjunction with calendar, you can take control of your time for greater efficiency.

(3) OneNote

How many times have you lamented that you haven’t paid more attention to the ‘art’ of note-taking? Try as you might, you just can’t seem to take sufficient notes and then when it comes time to organize them, forget it!

OneNote gives you the ability to take notes on literally any mobile device that is Microsoft compatible to be easily edited and ‘filed’ later. You can incorporate videos and spreadsheets and even collaborate with other students on term projects.

Yes, it pays to subscribe to the entire Office Suite, but if you can’t then these 3 essential apps are free. As long as you have a Microsoft account, you can download and install them easily and for free!

Since you are diligently working toward a graduate degree, why not take advantage of the Internet and these amazing Microsoft apps? Make life easy on yourself. Get organized and get that degree!
