For over 20 years, Microsoft Office has remained a staple not only in offices across the planet but homes of students and families everywhere. It's excellent lineup of business application tools power many functions businesses and enterprises need to survive, along with being the backbone for presentations and written assignments for students.

For the 2010 edition, Microsoft retains its position with upgrades to many of the pivotal changes made in the previous 2007 release of Office. User friendliness has been capitalized upon, making it easier to use than ever. We also get to enjoy a few more customization options to “the Ribbon” as well as the return of some sorely missed features, most notably the File drop-down menu. More tech-savvy users will welcome the 32-bit to 64-bit update to all applications, allowing faster processing and more productivity from the entire Microsoft Office lineup.

While Office 2007 instilled many positive updates on the Office brand, not all were kindly regarded. Perhaps the biggest fumble was the introduction of the “Office button,” an awkward circular button placed in the center of the Ribbon interface, sadly and ironically not introduced to users. Users scrambled to find classic and favorite functions found in the previous File menu and would sometimes navigate far and wide without realizing it was right under our noses. This frustrating feature is gone, and the File menu is back and greatly improved from its last appearance in Office 2003.

While the Fluent UI and The Ribbon are here for good, the functionality of both have been improved with even more suggestion features appearing up top, and enjoy a more classic and streamlined design familiar with more seasoned Microsoft Office users. Applications get upgrades across the board, especially with security and file validation, protecting you from potentially harmful files when using documents from outside sources. Enjoy an entire suite of products that perform smoother and faster, allowing you to get more done in less time.

What’s Different about The 2010 Edition? New Features You’ll Love

A switch to 32-bit operation to a 64-bit one is a subtle but massive update for Microsoft Office 2010. Just to note, it is an optional choice, so if you’re not sure you can research your options and pick the one that is right for you. If you have a smaller powered machine and use Office programs for more basic application, you can stick with the 32-bit selection.  

More demanding users however, will definitely appreciate the 64-bit option however. Excel users, especially for this package, will enjoy the 64-bit option due to its ability to almost doubled performance capabilities in comparison to the 32-bit version. What does this mean? The 64-bit option, while more demanding on your machine, can process much more in a much faster fashion and gets an increase in the amount of data stored in the program itself.

With Excel specifically, you can run multiple functions with more data and variables than before. Databases now can store much more than the previous 2GB maximum, allowing more processing power alongside enlarged storage capacities. This landmark upgrade keeps Office 2010 in the forefront of functionality and is be a change that will live on in succeeding released.

As mentioned before, the File menu option makes a glorious return replace the scorned Office button. Good intentions aside, that button took notoriously long to get used to (if one ever could). However, the File menu does change in form as well as function with this release. Backpage is introduced, allowing many more functions in a larger display window, taking up the entire application to list a wide array of options.

The essentials like the Open function remain, now with file mapping in the window, allowing easier navigation all in one pane as opposed to opening up multiple windows. Printing options are expanded, allowing you to select locations along with options such as print preview, orientation, and properties all in one place. This design improvement allows much easier and fluid usage with all Office applications.

Applications are the most important thing to look for when purchasing a package of software such as Microsoft Office. All Office applications get a beefed up image and graphics library. Themes and templates also get these more sleek graphics and design, cutting your time on creating a professional and appealing document even more. Art tools such as adding shapes and lines are also updated and upgraded with higher quality and more eye-catching designs that make your document stand out more than ever before.

The Ribbon gets enhanced throughout the family of products, still providing even more relevant suggestions for commands and functions. You can also now save specific functions you frequently use to the Ribbon as well, allowing quicker access.

Security features have been updated, pulling up files from outside sources or with differing file extensions in Read-Only mode, with a command prompt notifying users of security risks. This is great to prevent malware infections especially with files using Macros, a common backdoor from the past.
