What Is New With Office 2010 | Do Many With Office 2010

Office 2007, the predecessor of Office 2010, is version 12. Office 2010 will be version 14, skipping version 13, the number that Microsoft assumes may be not so lucky. Or, dont forget that Microsoft released a version of office for MAC as Office 2008.  Read more: http://www.bench3.com/2009/08/facts-about-microsoft-office-2010-does.html
What ever it is, Lets look at the key ideas behind the development of the features you will find in Office 2010. Working independently or in a group, at your PC or on the road, you’ll find new tools and techniques that help you create great-looking documents, worksheets, presentations, and more, and enable you to share your work easily with others. 

Office Now Available In A 64 Bit Version:
One significant change that has a large impact on processing speed and power is that Office 2010 is now available in a 64-bit version. This expanded capacity really shines in Excel, where enormous spreadsheets require that kind of processing power.

Office 2010 Now Has More Powerful, Flexible Tools
Office 2010 shows that powerful programs don’t have to be difficult to use. Program designers know that users today need a great variety of powerful, flexible tools, and that it’s important that those tools and features be easy to find and use. For this reason, you’ll find quick access to style galleries, themes, and more that help you select professional designs, choose from color schemes that work, and create a professional look whether you’re creating documents, worksheets, presentations, notebooks, or database tables.

To help you take your ideas to the next level, Office 2010 offers artistic effects and picture
editing, video editing in PowerPoint, new data visualizations (including sparklines and slicers) in Excel, and the ability to manipulate fonts professionally in Word. And this is just the beginning—there’s much more, as you’ll see in the chapters in Part II, “Hit the Ground Running.” And not only will your output be better, but the whole document creation process is easier, thanks to enhanced search features, simplified navigation, the contextual spell checker, translation tools, and more.

Collaborate Easily and Naturally
Unless you’ve been living off the grid for the last couple of years, you’ve probably noticed
that the world has gotten substantially smaller, thanks to the continuing expansion of Web technologies. Blogs, social media, and new online publishing alternatives have steeped most of us in a culture that is always on, always connected, and always talking. 

An increasing number of people are now working in teams, and those teams might be spread throughout the office or located around the world. A writer in Scotland could be working with a software developer in India who might have been hired by an administrator in Omaha. 

This geographical diversity within a project team is no longer an unusual occurrence—an increasing number of Office 2010 users need to collaborate with peers and clients all over the globe.

Office 2010 includes powerful tools to facilitate easy and successful team collaboration and management. Co-authoring features in Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010, and OneNote 2010 enable you to work with a variety of teammates on a single project in real time. And, when you use these features, your changes are automatically tracked and coordinated.

Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010, included with Microsoft Office Professional Plus, enables users to move files online and offline easily. Team leaders and members use SharePoint Workspace to create and update the team calendar, conduct project management, assign tasks, create document libraries, and more. Team members can collaborate in real time, and their documents show who is working on what so that duplication of effort or trading outdated versions of files is no longer a problem when several users work on the same document.

Presence information is available with Office Communicator throughout Office 2010, enabling you to see which of your teammates are online and communicate instantly—via instant messaging, e-mail, or phone—to clarify questions on the project. You don’t have to
leave the application you are working in to ask questions you need answered right away.

Work Anywhere—and Everywhere
Laptop, notebook, desktop, kiosk—any place that gives you an on-ramp to the Internet is a potential workplace in Office 2010. Office 2010 Web Apps let you work with the familiar Office 2010 interface and work with your Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010, and OneNote 2010 files. You can share files with other users by using Windows Live or SharePoint Workspace 2010 and then open and work with the files on your PC when you get back to the office.

If you are a gadget lover, you might already have a smartphone with all the bells and whistles you can get. Office Mobile 2010 gives you another way to work on the go, using your Windows Mobile smartphone. You can write up an idea before breakfast, create a new document, and share it with the team—all before you get into work in the morning. Later, on the way to meet a vendor, you can add a few more details, insert a picture, and send the file for review—all from your phone.

Office Mobile works with Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and SharePoint Workspace. The application windows have been customized to fit the small phone screen and browser so that you can find what you need easily and enjoy the familiarity of the Office 2010 interface.

This flexibility in Office 2010 gives you the freedom to follow through on your creative ideas in real time—whenever and wherever they occur.
