Looking for the best real-time file sharing and editing for mac software. Prefer it is online/ web based. Also two main documents that are going to be used are word docs and power point docs.

Didn't we give up on that about 10 years ago?

Microsoft Office has some fundamental CO-EDITING but as you should discover it's too flighty in reality to consider using in a real business.

What have you tried that worked? (You can guess my results.)

Just to let people know this is Mac based what I am looking for. I have looked into campfire and as possible choices.

Campfire is not co-editing.

Acrobat is commonly known for its PDF tools and not CO-EDITING.

I type CO-EDITING in all caps because this is the feature I thought you were after. For example, 2 people editing a Word document. Microsoft Office is on the Mac so your reply about Mac based does apply here.

I stop short here since you can go use the Office demos and research that on your own power. This is all volunteer so I share what might work and then you have something to research. No need for me to duplicate the web here.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
