Office 2007
Author: Tim Taylor

What’s New? Why Get It? What Changed?

Office 2007 has a new interface. It is a radical change from 2003. Yes, there will be a learning curve, it will take time to learn how to navigate through the new interface but ultimately it will be better with better features. If you want to see it for yourself before you purchase it, you can logon to the Microsoft web site and you can get hands-on with the new user interface. See the new user interface at work at:

Go down to TAKE A TEST DRIVE. You won’t be downloading anything. You will just be able to try the software in your browser.

A note about file formats in the new Office 2007 Microsoft Word. The new version will save the document in a format that cannot be read by Microsoft Word 2003 unless you save as a lower version or use a converter to open the document. If you are sending the document to someone who has not upgraded they won’t be able to open the file unless you save it in a lower version.

The reason for this is for security. Macros can be hidden inside of a word document so that when you open the file it corrupts your computer. The security features inside of Office 2007 where developed to prevent these types of viruses.

Some changes include calendar views, file format changes, toolbar changes and more. Most of the changes especially in MicroSoft Word give you more flexibility and of course added security.

Other interesting Microsoft Word Features:

(1) When you select content then go to the toolbar to select a font style, you will be able to see the font and size on the screen before you select it.

(2) Because of the 1500 command Word now has you can customize your menu which gives you more flexibility on the items that you use most often (Again go to the web site for an online demonstration).

(3) Improved Damaged file recovery – In a single file in Word items are kept separately so that if portions of that file are corrupted you can still read portions of it.

(4) It automatically zips the file.

(5) This version also has the ability to save as a PDF file.

Note about software: When you purchase one of the Suites you will be provided with a key that only allows you to use that particular suite. If you would like to purchase other programs you can online using the same CD. They will provide you with a new key that “unlocks” the other software from the CD. So don’t lose your CD!
