Microsoft Office 2010 has plenty of new features that just make it easier to get things done.

Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key and Free Download

Every application in the suite has been improved and tweaked in an effort to make the work using it to be more productive.

With release of Office 2010, Microsoft has upped the ante with a variety of new features, ranging from video editing and online conferencing in PowerPoint to better copy and paste options in Word.

 

Of course, the reason most people are reluctant to get hold of Office is the price. A copy of MS Office Home and Business is usually between $200 and $300.

One of the major new changes to the suite is the ability to collaborate and share your work using Web apps. You can collaborate using Web apps over your SkyDrive (25GB of available online storage) on Windows Live.

All these features make Office 2010 a must have on every one using Windows OS.

 

 

Key features

  • Faster performance.
  • Outlook search improved largely.
  • Customizable ribbon user interface.
  • Picture tools are great and easy to use.
  • Easy cloud access.
  • Support for co-authoring.
  • Skydrive integration.

 

 

Microsoft Office 2010 Lite

Microsoft Office 2010 Lite or Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is the lite version of the Office 2010 suite.

It has the necessary Excel 2010 and Word 2010 package which is limited and displays ads.

It doesn’t require the Microsoft Office 2010 product key to be activated and is completely free of cost.

 

The installation is simple and can be done with ease even by beginners.

One interesting feature you should notice here is that the Office Starter 2010 “Tools” menu includes Microsoft’s “Office Starter To-Go Device Manager”. It enables you to create a portable version of the Office 2010 lite suite which you can easily save on a USB flash drive and can run it on Vista or Windows 7 OS.

 

The functionality and features provided here are more than enough to meet the needs of many people.

So if you’re looking for a capable and free word processor and spreadsheet, and tools like OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice don’t appeal, then Office Starter 2010 is well worth considering.

 

 

But if you are looking for the complete package then you can have that too.

 

 

 Office 2010 Features Explained

1. Nice Interface -

The Office 2010 keeps the ribbon menu that was introduced in Office 2007. Infact, this style is now extended across the entire Microsoft Office 2010 suite.

However, Microsoft has made many improvements over the version found in Office 2007. In particular, it lets you customize it to your particular working style in each application

Other biggest interface difference that most of you will easily notice is the new File button that replaces the big, round Office button that is found in the 2007 edition.

It opens up a full-screen display that includes both file options (save, print, etc) and options to display recently opened documents, detailed document information, and more.

 

 

2. Backstage View -

Clicking the File tab in any of the Office 2010 application lands you in the Backstage area.

Here, you’ll see a variety of options for printing, sharing, or saving your document in various formats.

The Backstage menu is essentially a full-screen version of the file menu that appeared as a simple drop-down in Office 2007.

It also makes a lot of document-specific information including Document Mode, Permissions, Prepare for Distribution, and Versions readily available.

Summing it up, it puts all of your important document management information into a single view.

If you want to avoid the Backstage view, then you can always use keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + S to save or Ctrl + P to print.

 

 

3. Cool Image Editing Features -

We all know that Office isn’t Adobe Photoshop. The suite has always offered limited image editing features, but the they were not that great.

Microsoft has been working on these features, and has implemented better functionality in Office 2010.

The image editing and WordArt features include new preset filters, shadows and themes that you can select to spice up your work.

Perhaps this is the most compelling new feature of Word 2010 I must say.

As soon as you insert an image and click on it, a Picture Tools menu appears at the top of the ribbon. With the picture tools menu you can crop an image, rotate it, apply a border, or apply any number of special effects, such as bevel, glow, or reflection.

Added to this, you take screenshots directly from within Word, clean the background out of images and do still more.

 

 

4. Power to the Power Point -

PowerPoint users will now enjoy new transitions and animations.

Transitions and animations used to be combined into one ribbon interface tab, but each now has its own tab with more options.

PowerPoint now provides more options for editing video right within the program.

You can trim video so your audience sees only the video content you want them to see.

You also can add video effects, fades, and even create video triggers to launch animations during your presentation.

PowerPoint has a new web feature, as well, called BroadCast Slide Show. It’s fairly self-explanatory. This features lets you broadcast a slideshow on the web, making it easier to handle online presentations that make us of PowerPoint slideshows.

 

 

5. Outstanding Outlook -

Outlook has seen many notable feature improvements in Office 2010, which will save users time in their daily e-mail tasks.

The new Conversation View lets you group threads together so you can view an entire conversation in one place.

It is now easier to search through the e-mails too.

 

 

6. Excelling Excel -

Excel has received some tweaks as well, with easier-to-read, color-coded spreadsheets and smart tools to bring in the information you need.

In Excel 2010, you can flip through the tabs to access formulas, insert diagrams and charts, and quickly import data from connected sources.

A new feature called Sparklines lets you create a small chart in a single cell.

This lets users compare data across multiple cells with added graphical elements to make them easier to read and spot trends over time.

 

 

7. Catching up with the web apps -

We all know that technology changes rapidly, and the most interesting new ideas are also often the least expected.

Office 2010 comes with the brand new Save to Web feature lets you save files directly to your Windows Live SkyDrive, which offers 25GB of capacity for free.

Once you’ve uploaded a file you can retrieve it on other computers or you can share it with others.

If you’re on a computer which does not have Office installed you can still edit the file using Microsoft Office Web Apps (provided the document is a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file).

 

 

8. Support for Co-authoring -

Word 2010, OneNote 2010, and PowerPoint 2010 now include a co-authoring feature. This awesome feature enables multiple authors to work on the same document at the same instant of time.

You should know that only one author at a time can check a document out for editing.

The addition of co-authoring feature is a big plus for the Office 2010’s collaboration options.
