Upgrade to Office 2010
This workshop is designed for users who are changing from Office 2003 or Office 2007 to Office 2010. Office 2010 is significantly different – and, although intended to be intuitive, task based, and ‘fluent’ – the new interface might be daunting at first.
The first thing you will ask is “Where is …?” or “How do I…?” It is confusing for users who have developed short cuts and quick ways of doing things to suddenly find that the commands (seem to) have completely disappeared!
You might be so busy finding out how to do everyday tasks that you might not make the most of the new features. This workshop will help you to transfer your skills, and make the most of the new interface.
This course assumes that you are an experienced user of Office 2007 or earlier.
