All about Microsoft Office 2010

Now Microsoft Office 2010 is fully final and ready for sale. The event of Office 2010 has been a long road and with all that time, Microsoft’s Office team been hard at work to incorporate a large number of new features into the brand new model to assist make Office even better than ever. The staff strongly centered on the pace of the software as well as including neat options, like grabbing screenshot in Word, and the ribbon interface in Outlook.
With this overview of the Office 2010 RTM, I hope to spotlight several of the new features in Office 2010 that may affects you, the top user. Perhaps a very powerful change right off the bat in Office 2010 is

speed. Beforehand, there was many complaints about sluggish loading speed in Outlook 2007 and earlier, and in Outlook 2010, the loading pace has been immensely increased. After trying Outlook 2010 I can say it is lightning fast, even when utilizing giant PST files filled with a whole lot of e-mails. On the subject of all of the other applications in Office 2010, like Phrase, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, all of them load extremely quick and in-program performance is really fantastic.

The Ribbon
Microsoft introduced the ribbon menu back in Office 2007 to all of its programs except Outlook and OneNote. Some customers complained saying it hindered productivity and made issues laborious to find, but most embraced it, including ourselves. In Office 2010, Microsoft introduced the ribbon menu to Outlook and OneNote and also offered a solution to customize the looks and options in the ribbon.

Backstage Menu
Again in Office 2007, Microsoft did away with the normal “File” menu on the top of every program and replaced it when the new Office menu that was activated by the Office emblem in a circle button. In 2010, they did away with that and now simply made a “File” tab with the background color of the program you are in, so Word has blue, Excel has inexperienced, etc.

Once you click the File tab, you are brought to the new “backstage” view which takes over full display and supplies you with a menu to create new information, open existing information, print information, share files, etc. This is primarily where you may be performing all non-formatting duties, resembling inserting photos, which is done from the ribbon menu. Think of backstage as being the old “File” menu in Office 2003 or earlier and as the Office menu in Office 2007.


Office 2010 consists of many new methods to save and share your information with others around the world. Of course you may nonetheless save them via a traditional file in your laptop’s hard drive as well as sending them via an e-mail attachment. Nonetheless, you can now save them on to your Home windows account directly from the backstage “Save & Send” area. You merely just enter your Windows ID and it will sign you in and it can save you your file without leaving the program. This opens the door to new collaboration options and methods to put your records data the place you may access them from any laptop you might find yourself on.

Phrase 2010 additionally now lets you take display pictures right from within Phrase of any windows that you at present have open and paste them directly into a Word document. That is notably helpful for writing tutorials because you’ll be able to embrace display screen photographs of the motion you are displaying tips on how to perform.
When you set up Office 2010 on a tablet PC, you may mechanically get entry to inking options in Word, PowerPoint, and naturally, OneNote. The picture under shows the Ink tab on the ribbon that automatically appears in Word whenever you begin utilizing your pill’s pen.

Protected View
Microsoft has added a couple of security measures to Office 2010. The one which users will mostly typically come across is once they open a downloaded document in Phrase 2010. If you do so for the primary time, the ribbon is hidden and all modifying can also be disabled. A red Protected View notification seems letting you know the file was downloaded from the Internet and is probably not secure to open. You may then click on “allow editing” and Phrase will return to normal.

PowerPoint 2010
PowerPoint is used closely in lots of people’s lives, from faculty displays to company earnings presentations. Microsoft has been making PowerPoint adaptable for these completely different uses and has succeeded in making it simple to use too. The very first thing that Microsoft did to PowerPoint 2010 that needed to be accomplished for a while now is updating the slide animations and transitions. There are plenty of new slide transitions that Microsoft put effort and time into creating and what they did add appears professional and fits.

Users have been in a position to embed video into displays for a very long time, however there hasn’t been a option to simply edit them till now. In PowerPoint 2010, now you can edit embedded video right from inside PowerPoint itself without using an external video editing program. Whenever you click on a video that is been embedded right into a s
lide, two new ribbon tabs appear. The primary tab, Format, helps you to management the videos brightness, distinction, coloration, and magnificence (comparable to borders, shapes, etc.). The opposite tab, Edit, comprises the entire video modifying tools. As soon as edited, you can compress the video to minimize the presentation’s file size. Also, PowerPoint 2010 supports embedding video from online video sites, like YouTube. Simply click “Video from Online Video Web site” and copy and paste the embed HTML into the field that appears.

There are now some pretty neat artistic styles for modifying images and pictures in your presentations. There are lots of presets to choose from to give you a selected inventive look and feel.

Excel 2010
Microsoft Office Excel is a very well-used software in the world of enterprise due to its amazing features and talent to make sense of complicated data by use of graphs, tables, and charts. In case you select to install Excel sixty four-bit at set up, that may mean you can create and edit multi-gigabyte spreadsheets (4GB is the restrict with the 32-bit model) and memory intensive spreadsheets.

There is additionally a new function known as Sparklines. These are just about smaller charts that may be displayed using data from cells into one cell, which gives an at-a-glance have a look at the information and an easy method to characterize advanced numbers and knowledge without chunking it into one graph.

PivotTables have been round in Excel for a long time and permit users to interrupt down data into easier items after which let you pivot the info around to view it in method with different variables and such. A brand new feature to Excel 2010 are Slicers, which are data filters for PivotTables. Slicers appear as separate objects inside spreadsheets and let you change what data is displayed inside the PivotTable on-the-fly.

Outlook 2010
Another really useful characteristic in Outlook 2010 is its capacity to mix and thread e-mail messages from the identical e-mail deal with together. This threading is proven by a “()” designation (with ” being the variety of e-mails) in the fitting of the e-mail in your message list. Whenever you click on on it, the hidden e-mails will unthread and show indented beneath the main e-mail. When you click on off any of those e-mails, they disappear again. This function is a pleasant strategy to keep associated e-mails from the identical individual together without having to go looking to find all of them.

All of us hate e mail discussion lists, right? Now now in Outlook 2010 you’ll be able to click an “ignore” button to block all current and future emails that belong to that conversation thread so you don’t ever must cope with them again.

There’s now a “clear up” option for Outlook 2010 which allows you to clean up emails in a specific dialog thread. It should delete any redundant emails with duplicate data to save lots of house in Outlook.

Outlook additionally has a new function called Fast Steps, which lets you define common tasks that you simply carry out frequently and want to have them carried out with one click. To take action, you’ll be able to setup a brand new fast step with the entire steps and actions that you simply want taken. You can even assign keyboard shortcuts to each fast step as well. Once created, the Fast Step seems in its own part of the ribbon on the first tab, which means they’re always displayed by default. One might consider these as a kind of macro, however without all the security flaws and issues.
