Microsoft Office holds a solid 80% of the productivity software market. That means virtually everyone at one point or another comes into contact with Office files. There were significant changes to the interface in Office 2007 and that paved the way for Office 2010 to focus on features that will bring your work to a whole new level of professionalism and mobility.
Because Microsoft Office 2010 is not about interface or new applications, many of the features are subtle or hard to recognize at first glance. This course will show you what you need to know to get up to speed and quickly take full advantage of the Shared Features.
