    Angry Office 2007 - how frustraing!

    Had works PC upgraded over night last night to new 2007 software after 1 hour of training yesterday!

    Am getting so frustrated, nothing is where is used to be. I want the old style menu back, File, Edit, Insert etc...

    Grrrr, I hate it!

    Taking me twice as long to do any work because I can't find anything!!!

    The next version of Office is out next year (Office 2010), but it won't change the UI too much thankfully.

    i found the exact same problem, you can download something to convert back to the old UI though.

    Don't think it will be allowed, much stricter settings now!

    Not even allowed to change backgrounds or screen savers to other pre-loaded ones!

    So far I've found that those with poor Office knowledge find Office 2007 easier than previous versions, but people with good Office 2003 (and earlier) skills find 2007 hard to learn.

    It took me a good while to get the hang of Office 2007 but I now prefer it over older versions.

    I've heard tell of a Microsoft download which lets you choose the old menu options and it then tells you where the new menu options are in 2007, but I've neer managed to find it myself.

    Give it a couple of weeks and you'll be used to it.

    I was quite good with the older versions of Office and then we had 2007 deployed at work, I have to admit took a while to get used to but its not too bad now. I now have untill next week to deploy Win 7 and IE 8 onto my work PC
