Office 2007

By ssanders ·
I will surely feel like an idiot when I find out how easy this will likely turn out to be. In previous versions, one could click help, about, to see version info such as which service pack is installed. How is this done in Office 2007? I can't seem to find it.
Thanks in advance,

I love my job, but the incredible reliance on programs for everything appears to - at least under certain circumstances - serve only to 'dumb down' the students.

I provide a variety of links to all sorts of interesting information related to a particular subject via Blackboard. I enable tracking, meaning that I can see who has and how many times s/he has accessed those links. Link access is dismal. Am working now on including that info in tests in order to goad students into viewing the stuff. Ugh. Trying to interest the uninterested...
