Overview: A new look to familiar programs:

Overview: A new look to familiar programs 2 When you open a 2007 Microsoft Office system program, you’ll see a lot that’s familiar. But you’ll also notice a new look at the top of the window. Menus and toolbars have been replaced by “the Ribbon” , which contains tabs that you click to get to commands. This presentation introduces you to the Ribbon and other new ways to make better documents, faster.

The new Office: Made for you:

The new Office: Made for you 3 Yes, there’s a lot of change to familiar Microsoft Office programs. But it’s good change. With the Ribbon, commands and other tools you need are now exposed and more readily available.

The Ribbon:

The Ribbon The Ribbon replaces the traditional drop-down menus and toolbars in Microsoft Office. 4 Before (MS Word 2003 or earlier) we have menus and toolbars Now (MS Word 2007 or 2010) no more menus & toolbars; we have the ribbon

What’s on the Ribbon? :

What’s on the Ribbon? 5 The three parts of the Ribbon are tabs , groups , and commands . Tabs sit across the top of the Ribbon. Each one represents core tasks you do in a given program. Groups are sets of related commands. They remain on display and readily available, giving you rich visual aids. Commands are arranged in groups. A command can be a button, a menu, or a box where you enter information.

Slide 6:

Standard Tabs (Home, Insert, Page Layout, References, Mailings, Review, View, Help) Contextual Tabs (Ex. Picture Tools, Drawing, or Table) - These are tabs that appear only when they are needed on the type of task. Program Tab (Ex. Print Preview) - A Program Tab replaces the standard set of tabs when you switch to certain views or modes. 6 Three Types of Tabs

Example of Contextual Tabs:

Example of Contextual Tabs 7 To do this, let us try the following steps: Click Insert Tab in MS Word 2007. Find and click the Table tool under Tables group. Select in the displayed drop-down menu the Draw Table tool. Position the pointer in the document and draw a table by dragging. After creating a table in the document, you see that the Table Tools Contextual Tabs are displayed. This simply means that the content in the document which is the table can be further manipulated using the newly displayed tabs.

Program Tab:

Program Tab 8 To do this, let us try the following steps: Click Office Button in MS Word 2007. Select Print in the Office Button menu. Select and click the Print Preview option. You see that the Standard Tabs were substituted with the Print Preview tab only.

How commands are organized:

How commands are organized 9 Commands are organized by how they’re used. Frequently used core commands no longer have to share space with a range of remotely related commands on a menu or toolbar. They’re the ones that get used, and so now they’re the ones most prominently featured.

More commands, but only when you need them:

More commands, but only when you need them 24 Commands you use most are available on the Ribbon all the time. Others appear only when you need them, in response to an action you take. For example, the Picture Tools in Word appear on the Ribbon when you insert a picture, and they go away when you’re done. The Ribbon responds to your action. So don’t worry if you don’t see all the commands at all times. Take the first steps, and what you need will appear.

More options if you need them:

More options if you need them 25 Sometimes an arrow, called the Dialog Box Launcher , appears in the lower-right corner of a group. This means more options are available for the group. On the Home tab, click the arrow in the Font group. For example, to get to a less commonly used font option in PowerPoint ® 2007 : The Font dialog box opens, with the full selection of font commands.

Working with different screen resolutions :

Working with different screen resolutions 26 Everything described so far applies if your screen is set to high resolution and the program window is maximized. If not, things look different. Low resolution: If your screen is set to a low resolution, a few groups on the Ribbon will display the group name only, not the commands in the group. Click the arrow on the group button to display the commands. How? Like this:

Test 1, question 1:

Test 1, question 1 The Paste, Cut, and Copy commands appear where on the Ribbon? (Pick one answer.) 27 On the last tab. On the first tab. On the Quick Access Toolbar.

Test 1, question 1: Answer:

Test 1, question 1: Answer On the first tab. 28 These commands are used frequently, so they logically appear on the first tab of the Ribbon. Of course, you can add them to the Quick Access Toolbar if you want.

Test 1, question 2:

Test 1, question 2 You move from a computer with a high screen resolution to one with a low resolution. You don’t see the commands in one group. What do you do? (Pick one answer.) 29 Click the View tab. Click the View toolbar. Click the arrow on the group button.

Test 1, question 2: Answer:

Test 1, question 2: Answer Click the arrow on the group button. 30 If commands are not displayed, either because of screen resolution or because the program window isn’t maximized, you can display commands in a group by clicking the arrow on the group button.

Where do I start a blank document?:

Where do I start a blank document? 31 When you create a new document, workbook, presentation, or database, you’ll get a full, colorful window to help you begin. You can start with a blank or existing file, as you’re accustomed to doing. Or to jump-start your authoring work, look on the left. Under Microsoft Office Online , click Featured , and choose from the catalog of links to online templates and training courses. Now instead of having to have a browser open to view the online templates, you can view and download them right in your program as long as you have an active connection.

What about favorite keyboard shortcuts? :

What about favorite keyboard shortcuts? 32 If you rely on the keyboard more than the mouse, you’ll want to know that the Ribbon design comes with new shortcuts. There are shortcuts for every single button on the Ribbon. Shortcuts often require fewer keys. This change brings two big advantages over previous versions of Office programs:

What about favorite keyboard shortcuts? :

What about favorite keyboard shortcuts? Keyboard shortcuts of old that begin with CTRL are still intact, and you can use them as you always have. For example, the shortcut CTRL+C still copies something to the clipboard, and the shortcut CTRL+V still pastes something from the clipboard. 33 What about the old keyboard shortcuts?

What if I can’t find a command?:

What if I can’t find a command? 34 If you can’t find the command you’re looking for, there’s help. For Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007, there’s a visual, interactive reference guide to help you quickly learn where things are.

What about the new file formats?:

What about the new file formats? 35 Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 use new file formats. Increased security for your files and reduced chances of file corruption. Reduced file size. New features. There are lots of great reasons for the change:

What about the new file formats? :

What about the new file formats? For documents, workbooks, and presentations, the default file format now has an “x” on the end, representing the XML format. For example, in Word, a document is now saved by default with the extension . docx , rather than .doc. But always remember that some people do not use 2007, so before sending a file electronically it is best to find out which version they use. You may need to save it as 1998 – 2003 compatible. If you save a file as a template, the same applies: You get the template extension of old, with an “x” on the end; for example, . dotx in Word. If your file contains code or macros, you have to save it using the new macro-enabled file format. For a Word document, that translates into . docm ; for a Word template, it’s . dotm . 36 A bit more about the new format in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint:

Working with files from earlier versions:

Working with files from earlier versions 37 You may be the first in your group to get the 2007 Office system. Or you may work with departments that need to use Office documents saved in an earlier format. Don’t worry, you can still share documents between the 2007 Office system and earlier versions of Office programs.

Working with files from earlier versions :

Working with files from earlier versions You can open a file created in previous versions of Office programs, from 95 through 2003. Just open the file as usual. After working with it in the 2007 version, you may want to save the file. By default, the Save As dialog box saves a file created in a previous version as that same version. As you save, a Compatibility Checker will let you know of any new features added to the file that may be disabled, or matched as closely as possible. 38 Here’s how:

Working with files from earlier versions :

Working with files from earlier versions Colleagues who have Word, Excel, or PowerPoint versions 2000 through 2003 (and the latest patches and service packs) can open 2007 files. 39 Here’s how: When they open your document, they will be asked if they want to download a converter that will let them open your document. Some people may not want to or cannot because of Administrative permissions with their work computers, so it is always best to find out in advance, especially if it is a sensitive issue.

Test 2, question 1:

Test 2, question 1 Where is the first button that you click to get to the commands to open and save your files? (Pick one answer.) 40 On the first tab. In the upper-left corner. At the bottom of the Ribbon.

Test 2, question 1: Answer:

Test 2, question 1: Answer In the upper-left corner. 41 It’s the Microsoft Office Button .

Test 2, question 2:

Test 2, question 2 To use a keyboard shortcut to select a tab on the Ribbon, you first press which key on the keyboard? (Pick one answer.) 42 ALT. SHIFT. CTRL.

Test 2, question 2: Answer:

Test 2, question 2: Answer ALT. 43 This will display badges showing which key you press to access each tab.

Test 2, question 3:

Test 2, question 3 Colleagues who do not have the 2007 Microsoft Office system can open your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 files. (Pick one answer.) 44 True. False.

Test 2, question 3: Answer:

Test 2, question 3: Answer True. 45 The 2007 Office system has many measures in place to help you share documents with people using earlier versions of Office programs.
