Office 2007 Training Handouts and Slides

Here are Office 2007 Training Handouts and Slides for helping you make the switch to Office 2007. They are provided with permission from Kansas University. These tutorials cover Office 2007 in general, along with Access, Excel, Outlook, and Word. These will show you how to use the Ribbon, which is a new user interface feature that takes some practice getting used to.

Word 2007: Making the Switch
Word 2007 has been redesigned to make your work easier, faster, and more efficient. It introduces a new feature, the Ribbon, which brings the most popular commands to the forefront. This new workspace will enable you to create and edit documents quickly and smoothly.

The new Ribbon puts the commands you use most often in plain sight on your work surface instead of hidden in menus or dialog boxes. Ready-made cell styles let you quickly format your worksheet to make it easier to read and interpret. The new Page Layout view shows how your printed worksheet will look as you're creating it.
