10 Steps to Improve Productivity

Tips to help improve your productivity while reducing your stress.

After having provided handy reference info on the newest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, contributor CustomGuide rounds out its Office 2010-related offerings with, appropriately, a high-level guide to the customizable Ribbon interface that is shared across Office programs.


The Microsoft Office 2010 Reference Guidedescribes features and functions of the Ribbon, such as the Quick Access Toolbar, the Style Gallery and the Dialog Box launcher so that you can quickly orient yourself to changes made since the 2007 version. For instance, one of the tips found in this guide alerts you to the fact that the File menu and Office button found in Office 2007 have been replaced by the File tab in Office 2010.


In addition to covering the File tab and Backstage View commands, the guide shows you how to insert screenshots, work with picture tools, preview formatting options, add text-searchable WordArt, and use new and improved file management tools.


The details found in CustomGuide's reference guide, given their broad discussion of the purpose and function of the improved Ribbon, can make you a more informed and productive user of all of the Office 2010 programs since the Ribbon's design elements are shared across the suite.
