Microsoft Office has an important place in the world in the market of professional office suite.
Its components have become essential to many users, as Word
as the necessary word processing program which allows us to create documents of all kinds; it also has Excel
that is really useful for many processes, like calculating or even the PowerPoint
, an essential tool to make all marketing presentations or any presentations that we have to do for studies, etc. But what has made Microsoft Office 2010 really exceeded domestic lines is that it has become a program that is almost compulsory for all the computers we have at work or at home.
Although this version is not as innovative as was its predecessor, Microsoft Office 2007, which meant a huge difference before and after it, it has been able to consolidate many changes and also has added some more new aspects, all of them useful. In more specific aspects of Word , for example, this version incompletely improved in aspects like the capture and image processing, which is being added as well as a translation tool that before could only be used after adding the add-on for Windows Live Translator. It also offers us the ability to save documents directly in PDF or ODF format, which was not possible in the former versions.
PowerPoint, though, is not far behind in the changes that have taken place in this software. In this case, the developers have added new transitions and they are easier to work with embedded videos that we may want to use in our presentations. In Excel, the highlight comes with the user-defined functions (UDFs ), which are able to solve all kinds of computation intensive problems. Also, the functions can be executed asynchronously to download the processor and, thus, allowing the execution of other processes at the same time. Micrographs and preview before confirming operations are also new improvements that have been added to the improved Excel.
