Features and Benefits of Office 2010

  • The file format has not changed from Office 2007 and the learning curve will not be as steep.
  • The Ribbon is universal across all Office 2010 applications and has access to more commands.  A user has the ability to remove Ribbon tabs, add tabs, or change what shows on each tab.
  • Microsoft Office Backstage centralizes access to many commonly used commands.
  • Pictures can be edited from with select Office programs.
  • Documents can be edited by two users at the same time.  A notification tells who is editing and where the changes are being made.
