Just when you think you’ve mastered Microsoft Office, a new version comes out and you have to learn things all over again! Microsoft Office 2000, XP, and 2003 were all very similar. Office 2007 (for Windows) has an entirely new layout with ribbons, tabs, and new menus. If you’ve never tried Office 2007, you’re in for a big surprise!
So, is Office 2007 really that much easier to use compared to Office 2003? I don’t think so. I consider myself to be quite proficient with the computer (which is why I can type quickly and keep up with all my blog posts). I think I still prefer the layout of the menus and buttons that were found on Office 2003. I think the nicest feature of Office 2007 is found in Outlook with the “preview” function that allows you to preview attachments within the e-mail.
