Office 2007 Overview

With the release of Microsoft Office 2007 there have been many changes to the toolbars and layout of many regularily used functions.

When you first use Word or Excel it is a little frustrating get to an option you have used many times before. However, if you persevere you will find that the advantages of the new software outweigh the use of version 2003, as once you are able to navigate around the toolbars you can be far more productive.

Menu Bar
Now each time you click on an item in the menu bar the toolbars across the top change. The menu bar works the same as the TAB windows in Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox.

You now need to click the top, left circular button called the "Office Button" and then "Word" or "Excel" Options.
