        I recently posted this:

        Yesterday, I was working with Office 2016 Excel and Outlook as usual and noticed some very strange changes:

        In Outlook, if I opened a message, the reply, reply all and forward selections were in a modernized symbol over on the right side.
        The delete icon next to each message was a trashcan instead of an “X”.
        In Excel, the familiar “Tell me what you want to do” was missing and I could NOT figure out how to get it back.
        Also, setting row height automatically wasn’t to be found.

        Today, everything is back to normal.

        What is happening here???  Seems like demons invaded!

        I got an answer: I was told that I had been using Office on the Web.

        The Question is:  How did I get there without doing it intentionally?  Any ideas?
        (I rather liked some of the features!  Especially the email addressee pulldowns.)
