Section 2: Introduction and Auxiliary Materials
Word 2010 retains the ribbon from Word 2007, but it is now possible to change the tabs and commands on the ribbon. You can add and remove both tabs and commands so that your ribbon looks and works exactly how you want it. 

This clip shows you how to remove an existing tab, create a new one and add some commands to it.

The Backstage View is new to Word 2010. It lets you manage your documents more easily by bringing information together in one place. 

In the Backstage view, you can see a mini-preview of the document with its properties, search for sensitive information such as names and authoring information, and protect documents with passwords.

You can also make sure that your document is compatible with older versions of Word.

The Paste function used to cause as many problems as it solved for users of Word 2007 and older versions, because of the risk of pasting text into an area that had different formatting.

The new Paste Preview function in Word 2010 lets you view text in its new location before you paste it, and choose whether you want to keep the formatting you've copied, use the formatting in place at the point where you're pasting, or combine the two format styles.

Word 2010 has a great new set of picture tools, the first of which is Artistic Effects.

In this clip we look at how to make your pictures look very different with just a few clicks of the mouse. Show your pictures as if seen through a glass door, as if drawn in pencil by an artist, and many others.

Other tools in Word 2010's picture toolbox are background removal and integrated screenshots.  It's now really easy to remove the background from an image that you've inserted into Word. This is great if you want to pull out just one part of the image, for example a
computer that you want to sell.

The integrated screenshots feature lets you capture all or part of your screen to put into a Word 2010 document as an image, without having to use the Print Screen function on your desktop.

PowerPoint 2007 lets you add great effects to pictures, such as shadows, gradients, reflections, and glow effects.

Word 2010 now lets you add those effects to your text to make it really stand out.  In this clip we show you how to do this and review when you might use these types of effects.

PowerPoint 2007 lets you add great effects to pictures, such as shadows, gradients, reflections, and glow effects.

Word 2010 now lets you add those effects to your text to make it really stand out.  In this clip we show you how to do this and review when you might use these types of effects.

In Word 2010 the Document Map and Find feature have been combined into a new Navigation Pane. This makes it really easy to look for specific content, headings and text, within your documents. 

In this clip we show you where to find this pane and how to use it.

In legacy versions of Word, it was not possible to do anything about it if you closed a document without saving it.  In Word 2010 that has changed.

In this clip we will show you how to recover a document in Word 2010, whether you've saved it in the past or whether it's a completely new unsaved document.

Once you've finished working on your Word 2010 document, you may want to share it with your colleagues.  In this clip we will show you how to send it from within Word 2010 as an e-mail attachment (in Word, .pdf or .xps format.)

You may even want to publish it direct to your blog. We show you how to do that too by linking Word with your blog provider and your own blog.

Word 2010 has a great new web application which lets you save your Word documents to the web. You can then either share them with your colleagues, or work on them again yourself when you're at a computer with Internet access.

We show you how to do that using Windows SkyDrive, for standalone users. SkyDrive also lets you create new Word documents on the web. You don't even need to be at a computer with Word 2010 on it to work on, or create, a SkyDrive Word document on the web.

If your organization has a Microsoft SharePoint server you can also use that to work with Word documents on the Intranet or Internet.

Section 5: What's New in Outlook 2010
Outlook 2010 is the first version of Outlook to adopt the ribbon bar that was first introduced in Microsoft Office 2007. In addition to the ribbon, Microsoft has made some other changes to Outlook’s interface as well. Some of the more notable changes include the following:
  • The Backstage View
  • The ability to view messages as a conversation thread
  • The new Outlook Social Connector
The Backstage View is new to Outlook 2010. It provides a place for managing and configuring Outlook. Additionally, the Backstage View provides mechanisms for printing messages, saving attachments, cleaning up mailboxes, and turning on Out of Office notifications.
By default, Outlook displays specific columns of information when you view the Inbox. These columns include things such as who the message is from, the subject line, and whether or not an attachment is included with the message.  Although the default layout will likely work for most users, Outlook does allow you to customize the Inbox. You can add, remove, and rearrange columns.
Quick Steps provide users with single click access to common tasks. Outlook 2010 includes several built-in Quick Steps, but also provides users with the ability to create their own custom Quick Steps. Prior to using a Quick Step for the first time, a user must perform some initial configuration. In doing so, the user is also given the opportunity to adapt the Quick Step to better meet their needs.
Schedule View is designed to make it easier to plan meetings and other events by allowing users to simultaneously view all of their team member’s calendars. Before Schedule View can be used, each individual team member must share their calendar with their team mates. In doing so, users can choose to share the full details of their calendar or to share only availability information.
It is quite common for E-mail conversations to become quite lengthy. Conversation View provides a way for users to de-clutter their Inbox by grouping and then collapsing message conversations. Additionally, users have the ability to tell Outlook to ignore ongoing conversations that have become irrelevant and to clean up their Inbox by having Outlook remove any redundant portions of a conversation.
Microsoft has marketed the Outlook Social Connector as a tool for connecting Outlook to Social Networking Sites. In doing so, information from social networking sites is synchronized with Outlook. Even if a user does not use social networking sites, the Outlook Social Connector is still beneficial because it provides an aggregate view of all activity related to a specific recipient.
Outlook 2010 offers two new options for searching the contents of a user’s Inbox. One option is to use the Search Suggestions, which are displayed as a user begins entering text into the Search field. The other option is to perform a contextual search by using Outlook's Search ribbon.
Outlook WebApp (OWA) is a Web based version of Outlook that is included with Exchange Server 2010. Exchange Server 2010 is the first version of Exchange to include a Web based version of Outlook that can be fully utilized across multiple browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox). Additionally, The Exchange 2010 version of OWA includes the Exchange Control Panel, which users can use as a self-service portal for performing low level administrative tasks on their own mailboxes
