Microsoft Office 2010 ribbon made easy with interactive menu guides

  • Comments 3

What if I told you there was a way to easily see where to find your favorite functions from older versions of Microsoft Office (before the ribbon) in Microsoft Office 2010’s ribbon?  Would that be helpful for any of you?  Well, let me help you out.  Here are some interactive “Menu to ribbon” guides we have available for you to download now that do exactly that:

One of the really nice features of these interactive ribbon guides is that they are fully visual and allow you to navigate to the command you are used to using in the older version of Office and it will not only tell you where to find it in the Microsoft Office 2010 ribbon, if you click the command, it will actually show it to you visually on the Office 2010 ribbon.  Below is an example in PowerPoint for inserting clip art:

Download and try out any of the interactive ribbon guides above for the Microsoft Office applications you use today.  I think you will really like how easy these are to use!

  • Eric,

    Great tools!  Everyone I've given them to has loved them.

    Thing is, I'm on a huge (10's of thousands of seats) Windows 7 / Office 2010 rollout.  Is there a way to run these from a website?  Simple menu and then have the app run on the server.  Or is there a URL already out there?

    Thank you for your help, and keep up the great work!
