Office 2010 at Delhi

In Spring 2010, CIS at SUNY Delhi will begin testing office 2010.  We will start with our own department in addition to some other strategically picked offices.   We will also be asking for a limited number of volunteers willing to help us test the new version.  Delhi is upgrading office from version 2003, bypassing version 2007 in most areas.  Microsoft has completely revamped the user interface between version 2003 and 2007 so many of you will find the interface to be much different, and at first perhaps a little overwhelming.  Fear not.  While things have certainly changed, the changes are for the better.  The menus, options, and document workflow have been redesigned to be easier to follow and more intuitive.  People who have already upgraded tell us  that “at first I had to get used to the new layout, but now it is so much easier to use than 2003”.    CIS is dedicated to making this transition as seamless as possible and to providing you with the resources needed to get up to speed.  We have compiled some excellent resources  below for your reference.

Overview of project

CIS will install the application remotely.  That is, a technician does not need to visit your desk to install the new version.   Older versions of Microsoft Office will automatically be removed from your computer.  Your documents will not be affected during this installation.  You will be informed in the days leading up to the installation on your computer.

What’s New in 2010

Office 2010 has introduced many new features since version 2003.  Many of these features are designed to make working with the system easier.   To get an overview of all the things that have changed since version 2003,  Click Here.

The biggest change that you will notice when starting up Office 2010 for the first time is the user interface.  You will notice that the file menu is still there but the rest of the menus have been removed in favor of a graphical tool bar.   Introducing: The Ribbon:
The Ribbon is a command bar that organizes features into a series of tabs at the top of a window. Using a ribbon increases the users ability to discover new features and functions, enables quicker learning of the program as a whole, and makes users feel more in control of their experience with the program. A ribbon can replace both the traditional menu bar and tool bars.   The tabs along the top of the ribbon are positioned such that your normal workflow with a  document will go from left to right, with the more commonly used tools and options being on the left.  As you put finishing touches on your documents you will find yourself using the right tabs more.  To get more information about the ribbon, click here.
