First Look: Microsoft® Office 2010

by Katherine Murray

Welcome to Office 2010. Whether you work primarily in the office or on the go, you'll find smart tools in this release that enable you to get your work done easier, faster, and more professionally than ever. This book will inspire you and give you a good sense of the exciting features in Office 2010. This book was written while the software was in development, so you may find some variance in screen illustrations and procedures. Part I, "Envision the Possibilities," introduces you to the changes in Office 2010 and shows you how you can make the most of the new features to fit the way you work today. Chapter 1, "Welcome to Office 2010," gives you a play-by-play introduction to new features; Chapter 2, "Express Yourself Effectively and Efficiently," details the great feature enhancements and visual effects throughout the applications; and Chapter 3, "Work Anywhere with Office 2010," explores the flexibility factor by presenting a set of scenarios that enable users to complete their work no matter where their path takes them. Part II, "Hit the Ground Running," focuses on each of the Office 2010 applications in turn, spotlighting the key new features and showing how they relate to the whole. These chapters provide a how-to guide for many of the top features you're likely to use right off the bat, and they offer inspiring ideas on how to get the most from your favorite applications. Part III, "Next Steps with Office 2010," zooms up to the big picture and provides examples to help you think through interoperability. How often do you use the various Office applications together? Customer research shows that people often don't realize how well the applications work together as a complete system--which means they might be laboring over items they could easily incorporate from somewhere else. This part of the book provides examples for integrating the applications and explores Office 2010 security and training opportunities, as well.
