Did you know the interface used in Office programs before 2007 was designed way back in 1992? That's something I learned when researching the Office 2007 interface, the ribbon. Here's some cool tools to help you get the most out of it.
The interactive guides mentioned in this video are here for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook. Or find them all here.
More tools: Get Started with Office 2007 here including a free add-in to get quick information right in a program (as seen in the image to the right). Also, watch former Group Program Manager Jensen Harris give a much more eloquent (and longer) look at the why and how of the ribbon, for those who need The Story of the Ribbon.
Great video Doug. I love the desk cady analogy. I didn't know that's what that thing was called, either.
My friend created a sign up sheet with clip art on her Microsoft Office 2007. She sent it to me in email for me to print off on my HP three-in-one color photo printer. Here is the problem. It will not open on my computer. I am running office 2003 on my computer. Is there anyway for her to send this document to me so I can open the clip art. I can open the spsread sheet only. Thank You

Would be great if the programme worked > it keeps breaking up amd it is imposible to hear the commentary
I hate the ribbon interface. I have been working with it for months now and I think it is horrible. Formatting photographs and objects is worse than the last 5 versions of Office. Not only did the menus move, they have been subdivided so it takes more steps to get done what was previously merely tedious and fiddly. I could at least resize, format, layout, edit brightness/contrast, and set text wrapping in one set of tabbed submenus. Now it is divvied up into three different submenus with their own sub-submenus, tripling the number of clicks I have to do for every !!!!!!!! image or object I have to put into a document, which in some of my reports run into the hundreds. In addition, the old problems of photos wandering around the document, or creating their own table cells, or edging out and superimposign themselves on already edited photos and objects have not only not been solved, there is an additional kink in the fact that now when I copy images and objects from photo software, excel or access, it can be pasted into the appendix but then pastes itself in the text section in a separate instance of Word on another monitor and of course, below the visible text so I'm in some Lucy skit trying to repaste the same image or object into the appendix while it is randomly locating itself in another document entirely.
How can I make the rotten thing go away and get my old menus back? Or make the rotten ribbon thing act like Offices 97, XP, 2003? If I wanted a Mac or a Fisher Price toy I would have bought one.
Dear EDH, Err... no ribbon on the Office for Mac. The toy seems to be the Windows version. Not trying to rub it in, though. I have to suffer the Windows Office at work and I resent the fact that I have to manually add the functions and icons I would like to use. I am an intuitive person, but this ribbon thing has just defeated me and slowed me down. In addition the the help is just plain rubbish. I don't need videos, I just need a quick demo of where can I find what.
Great. I need to learn the Ribbon fast (in one day at the outside), and all I can do is get an ActiveX block, and videos. I can't download videos... takes too long! Why don't you have an easy-to-access how-to? Oh, Yeah. I forgot this is Microsoft we're talking about. Everything is PROPRIETARY. Change for change's sake! Get it together Microsoft. you want MSPs and whatever else you call them, and yet you go OUT OF YOUR way to make it difficult to learn/use your products! And I actually LIKED you products...
I cant stand the new "ribbon", Im using a 60 day trial of office, and I wont be buying it. I'll be reinstalling my office 2000 as soon as I get round to it!
Not sure if the following link can help those who has a problem with ribbon or those who cannot find the command. office.microsoft.com/.../HA102295841033.aspx
this link also contain a good information. www.microsoft.com/.../b2222d4d-15f6-4ef7-b021-b741bcdefcb5
cannot get microsoft office to quit, so ican go back to the way i was using computor
SURE wish hotmail hadn't given my old laptop an infection AND/OR that my desktop hadn't crashed -- combination of both forced me to buy new computer ... Gee, ain't I the lucky one ... instead of working with XP and Office 2003, I get the 2 most unfriendly programs on earth -- Vista and Office 2007, whose customer service consists of: go find the answers yourself because we don't care ... but, if you want to pay us to tell you that, too, we'll be happy to take more of your money.
I'm with you EDH, someone please put me out of my misery. My office as just gone to this crap, I was the PowerPoint go to man. What used to take seconds now takes me minutes, and it only seems to be getting worse . . .
Been messing around with the ribbon for the last three days and it has done nothing but confuse and demotivate myself and co-workers. As several people have stated before, is there a way to go back to the 03 style toolbars?
