    2007 Emulation of 2000 (Office 2007)

    My office has lived on Office 2000 for some years.
    Now we have new PC's and Office 2007
    Despite the faster PC's efficiency has dropped because none of the older members of staff can get to grips with the appearance of 2007. One staff member even insisted on her PC being moved when she changed desk - Yes, we have roaming profiles etc.
    Is there a way to make 2007 look more like 2000 - The 2 main progs used are Word and Excel?
    Life for me as IT liaison would become so much simpler

    We install Guy Gallo's free Word Menus add-in. This only helps in Word, of course, but it can be handy crutch. (I use it on my home computer.) The add-in shows up on the Add-ins tab of the ribbon, leaving the rest of the system for the users to explore at their leisure. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    By the way, for your users who memorized menu paths such as Alt+O B to call up the Borders and shading dialog, most of those menu paths (other than the File menu) continue to work.

    You can also use Search Commands. It is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> from the Microsoft Office Labs. It works with Word 2007, Excel 2007, & Powerpoint 2007.
