    get started (2007)

    A <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> addin from Microsoft - Download details: Word 2007 Add-in: Get Started Tab for Word 2007.

    From the Overview section on the download page:

    "This add-in adds a Get Started tab to the Word 2007 Ribbon. Commands on this tab give you easy access to free content on Office Online, such as training courses, video demos, and other Office Online content designed to help you learn Word 2007 quickly. An Office Online interactive command mapping tool, also available on the Get Started tab, shows you where to find Word 2003 buttons and commands in Word 2007. Office Online Community discussions are also available directly from Word with this add-in."

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    Does anyone have experience with the Get Started Tab Add-In? I'm an unfortunate new user of Office 2007. Research here and elsewhere turns up humorous phrases such as "shock and dismay" and "the dumbing down of Office." Well, I can now certainly understand those terms. My personal preference is "culture shock." I'm finding my way around fairly well but welcome any help to make the transition easier.

    I found this which is a wonderful help. But it requires having yet another window open and only works in Internet Explorer. The site opens what appears to be a blank Word 2003 document. But if you click on the menu bar, i.e. File, Open then a balloon pops up to tell you how to do the same thing in Word 2007.

    I have not tried "Getting Started."

    I recommend Guy Gallo's Word Menus add-in. It shows up under the Add-ins tab on the ribbon and presents the old menu bar (more or less) for quick reference.
