New Answers

IT pros always have lots of questions about Microsoft products. You can subscribe to MSDN or TechNet, use Microsoft support, look it up on the Internet or ask your peers.

There is another option: Microsoft Answers.

We wanted to provide you with a heads-up on Microsoft Answers, a three-year-old forum driven by the Microsoft Community. Microsoft recently revamped the site and claim the streamlining will make it that much faster to get your questions handled.

The total redo can rank the reputation or credibility of community contributors, helping to insure that the answers are real, while weeding out scammers and knuckleheads.

Microsoft also claims it improved Microsoft Answers Search by allowing visitors to tag content for its level of help.
