Thinking about upgrading to Microsoft Office 2010?
Each upgrade brings exciting new features, but new versions of your favorite programs can take some getting used to. It’s no different for those of us here at Microsoft who create the Office programs than it is for our customers.
To ease the transition, we’ve put together six handy Office 2010 migration guides to help you step up to the newest versions of Microsoft Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word.
Update: These handy guides are now available in 36 additional languages. For their free download links, see this blog post.
Whether you’re coming from an older version of Office and just want to find the most frequently used commands in a program, or you’re entirely new to Office and want a quick overview of how the ribbon works and how to get to the most important things, each guide provides helpful information that we’ve based on direct feedback from you — our customers.
All six guides are available as separate downloads, so you can grab just the ones you need:
- Install the free Adobe Reader (if you don’t already have it on your computer).
- Browse and download our free Office 2010 migration guides.
While you’re viewing any guide, you can save a copy of it to your computer for later viewing, navigate through all of its pages (each guide has 7-8 pages in total), zoom in to get a closer view at any of the screenshots, or search for feature names or keywords to quickly find something in the text.
If you find these guides useful, consider sharing this blog post with your colleagues and friends who use Microsoft Office programs.
