MS Office 2010: More Help If You’re Migrating From Office 2003


If you’ve recently given up your Microsoft Office 2003 for the “latest, greatest” version, Office 2010, you may be a bit disoriented.

You’ve heard the hype about the new Ribbon User Interface but now you’re faced with actually having to use it…

If it’s not something you’re taking to easily or just feel like you need more guidance, I have a suggestion or two for you.

Microsoft has put help out there for you – you just have to know where to look to find it.

Previously I’ve directed you to the Program Guides offered at the Microsoft Support Site. There you’ll find a great set of programs that allow you to click on a command in Office 2003 and it then shows you where to find that command in Office 2010. Cool!

However, for some of you it’s a true introduction that you need, to even begin to feel comfortable with these new programs.

If that’s you, then here’s what I found that may do the trick.

We are back at the Microsoft Support Site and this time we’re going to explore the Office 2010 Migration Guides.

Once there, this is what you’ll find:



Basically it’s an introduction to the guides, and the main feature is the 6 program links you see in the center.

Choose a program, and you’ll have a new tab open with an Adobe PDF file.



In this multi-page document, you’ll find information on things like finding the Print Preview, the Options dialog box, “missing” menus and commands, keyboard shortcuts, etc…

It’s a basic introduction that answers some of those questions many people have when first exposed to the Ribbon User Interface.

While there are other types of help available, this one is a good introduction to the new concepts used in Office 2010 (and 2007 for that matter).

Once you’re comfortable with the setup, you’re really ready to dig-in and find the commands you seem to have “lost”.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets. 

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

LG Gram 17 Review: Hands-on

LG’s Gram 17 was on display at CES 2019 and we got our hands on the ultra-thin, ultra-light device featuring a beautiful 17-inch display
Should I Buy The LG Gram 17?
The Gram 17 is an impressive bit of kit, but it is serving more of a niche audience than it perhaps appears.
A laptop with a display any bigger than 15 is perhaps approaching a point where it struggles to be called ‘portable’ due to it’s raw size. However, if that isn’t something that bothers you, the 17-inch display is fantastic for both working and watching your favourite films or series on.
Everything else aside the Gram is a beautiful, extremely light choice of laptop that manages to pack a lot of power and utility into an incredibly slim, slick package.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.
