Has anyone installed this yet? I was wondering what everyone thought of it. I currently have 2007 and I'm honestly not that fond of it. I've had it since January and I thought I'd get used to it, but it just hasn't happened.
So what do you think?
well it's worse than 2007 in that all the bits they changed in 2007 that I, and probably you, don't like are there even more so in 2010.Originally Posted by wdwgrandma, post: 231987
To be honest, I think 2003 was the sweet spot.
Outlook 2010 is nicer than outlook 2007, more reliable, multiple exchange email accounts which is important to me etc. but overall it's just a pain.
Office 2011 on the mac though is a really nice improvement
I thought that the whole purpose of Office 2010 was to keep the enhancements but to go back to the look and feel of 2003.

Well if they have then that's news to me because the bits I dont like on office 2007 are the new tab tool bar thing where you have to guess which tab your icon is in :/ That's still there on 2010. I'm sitting looking at word 2010 now wondering where footer is. Could be page layout, could be insert, could be anywhere. (turns out it's insert)
So no, not in my experience John
Here's something you might find useful. It's not perfect but at least it gets you closer to the old Office 2003 interface.
This is just one way that I found. I think there's others. I just didn't look farther.

We've been using this at work. There are quite a few things I like and quite a few I don't. I love how easy it is in Word or Excel to email attachments and save. Some of the new 'easy' buttons in Excel really drove me batty at first but I have to admit it just takes some getting used to.
The real shock to my system was Access (which I only use sparingly) but I sometimes go back to 2007 cause I really don't want to re-learn all that Access nonsense
we got it as part of our microsoft aggreement, yet to look at it but will have to as part of the upgrade for the school.
im just getting to grips with 2007, not fond of it at all, its sooooooo not user friendly, cant find hardly anything
i agree keith 2003 was the perfect package IMHO
I mostly use Outlook and Word - Excel occasionally - at home, that is. I use some of the other applications at work. I was hoping for a slightly more intuitive release. Doesn't sound like it is, though...
