There have been many improvements made in the windows office suite in the new Office 2010 full version. One of the most important involves making the Ribbon to be the default interface for all the Office applications while at the same time adding a couple of new features for example editing of videos in PowerPoint and making it easier to handle mail in Outlook. There has also been the addition of a host of photo editing tools and an enhanced paste operation tool.
The Ribbon in Office 2010 Full Version
The Ribbon in the Office 2010 full version software is by far the most important addition to the suite. It was introduced for the first time in the Office 2007 but not all the programs in this suite enjoyed full access to it. For instance: Outlook and several other programs. The Ribbon replaces the old menus of menus and sub-menus with a graphical representation the put buttons with common tasks together. In Office 2010 full, the ribbon interface is included in Outlook, OneNote, all other Office applications and SharePoint. Because of a tendency f many people to confuse the large circular button at the top right hand of the page as a branding icon instead of the functional button it was, Microsoft, in the Office 2010 full version have converted it into an unobtrusive rectangular button and have brought it slightly down from its previous position at the very top of the page. The new Ribbon allows the user to customize the buttons they want to see on it depending on what they use. This option was not available in the Office 2007 version.
The Backstage View in Office 2010 Full
When you click on the new office button, you are taken into what Microsoft has labelled the Backstage View. This is a single place where you can get information on documents and common tasks that you are able to perform. This is a major improvement of the same feature that can be found in the Office 2007. Through this feature, you are able to do the normal tasks like Save, Save As, Open operations etc as well as customize document properties, manage versions, check for compatibility, preview documents before printing, etc. These new features in Office 2010 full are easier to come by unlike in the Office 2007 where they were a bit more difficult to get at.
Office 2010 full Paste Preview
One of the more subtle of the improvements made to the Office 2010 full is the ability to preview a paste item before you do the actual paste. This adaptation has most likely been influenced by the enhanced ability copy-and-paste into Office applications from many kinds of content that includes graphics, tables and other complex content. Office 2010 full allows the user to see the effect of one kind of paste option before they make a decision on what to do. All one has to do is to hover the mouse over the options and one can see the effect of the paste, making it easier to carry out the now seemingly complex copy-and-paste operations.
The Office 2010 Full Photo Editing Tools
Working through the Ribbon, one as access to much improved Office 2010 full photo editing tools. This works by way of selection of a photo has been inserted in a document and a Format tab appears with tools meant for editing images. Some of these tools include sharpening, softening changing contrast, color saturation, cropping, among other options. Office 2007 did not have advanced options of doing the same functions and it did not give you the same degree of control.
The 64-bit Communication System in Office 2010 Full Version
Microsoft has integrated the Office 2010 full version to be compatible with several of their communication server products. For instance, if you use the Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007 R2 and the Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 with Office 2010 full version, you can be able to see the people you are in contact with in such tools as e-mail and instant messaging. You can also get the Office 2010 in 64- bit as well.
The New Outlook in Office 2010 Full Version
The new look Outlook application has a full use of the Ribbon menu making it very easy to use. Previous functions that you had to navigate several menus in order to access are placed right there in front of you. This makes it easier to navigate through your mail and take actions.
The Office 2010 full also solves one of the chronic problems of Outlook; that of threading messages. In this version, you can with the click of a button see all the messages in one conversation. It also gives you the ability to arrange your messages using the Conversation View so that you can follow them, easily expand and collapse them.
The PowerPoint Video Feature in Office 2010 Full Version
In the new PowerPoint 2010 application, the video feature is quite advanced as compared to previous PowerPoint versions. This version has a set of basic video editing tools installed right into PowerPoint. It also comes with the ability to pause, rewind and fast-forward videos. Basically, the formats it plays are Audio Video Interleave (.avi) files and Windows Media (.wmv) files but it can play other formats after installation of third party codec’s and add-ins applications. The Office 2010 full allows you to imbed videos from such websites as YouTube and paste it in PowerPoint.
The Office 2010 full version comes with a host of new features that make much better to use. The applications in it have also been highly enhanced. There is still the small issue of bugs but the new changes in the Office 2010 full version outweigh these little kinks.
