10 cool features to look forward to in Office 2010

Outlook Quick Steps

Another great new Outlook feature is Quick Steps. This is a section on the Ribbon's Home tab where you can create single-click links to perform tasks that normally require multiple steps. For example, if I want to forward a message to my husband, instead of clicking forward and then typing his address into the To box, I just click the To Tom link and the forwarded message appears with his address already entered.

Meager additions at best...will be hard to justify upgrading at all, let alone many machines....hopefully, Office 2010 has much more to offer...

is still a waste of screen space. And hiding it is still worse. Things popping in and out of view is annoying at best, and startling most of the time. I've been using and teaching Office 07 for four semesters. That ribbon still stinks. To put it politely.

It only took a decade for Office to evolve to where I might want to spend the money to change. Windows 7 and Office 2010 might be my ticket in 2010.
