Office 2010 Backstage

Microsoft has introduced new concept in all Office 2010 products for the main menu “Backstage”, it is the replacement for the old circle menu in Office 2007


Backstage has new interface, combine all file management functionalities, this is screen shots for back stage from the different Office 2010 application

Outlook 2010


Word 2010


PowerPoint 2010


OneNote 2010


Excel 2010


I have to admit it is looks nice and have different colors for each product but i feel it is too crowded for Save, Save as, Options,…etc menus it should be much simpler.

Outlook 2010 Quick steps

I have installed Office 2010 technical preview early last week on work machine and since most of my work on Outlook, it is the first product to get in touch with and discover its new features.

Outlook 2010 has new feature called Quick steps where you can customize some actions to apply on an email, some quick steps exists by default on Outlook


For example

To Manager: it extracts your manager for the address list and construct new email with the manger in to field.



Performs a set of defined actions on the mail and through options you can add another actions.

Quick steps easily customizable, quick and really a need end user feature

Good job Office team
