Learning Office 2007

I’m always learning when it comes to the office suite. I consider myself a bit of an office power user but i’m always picking up new things it can do.

The single phrase i hear time and time again when i’m doing something in office and someone is watching is

“I didn’t know you could do that”

It’s usually just little things like being able to hide the ribbon (Ctrl+F1 helps here) or customising the quick access toolbar

So i noticed a couple of office demos appearing on the microsoft download site recently. Only a few to start with then a couple of days a go it threw up a ton of them. They are a series of videos that walk you through how to do specific tasks in Office 2007. Nothing too complex but knowledge is power and once users become more confident they’ll use more of the software

The links are below and i’ve categorised them to make it easier.

If you have a customer who is getting to grips with office you could download them all and stick them in a file share or on a sharepoint site 

If you’ve never used OneNote i’d recommened watching those

Note. The downloads are .exe files which you have to extract to get at the videos. Not a big deal but just an extra step you have to deal with
