Microsoft office Word 2010 Changes

What’s new

This section highlights new features in Word 2010.

Fluent UI

The Word 2010 user interface is redesigned and now uses the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface (UI). Introduced in the 2007 Microsoft Office system, the Fluent UI is designed to make it easier for people to find and use the full range of features that Office applications provide, and to preserve an uncluttered workspace. For more information about the Fluent UI, see the resources in Microsoft Office Fluent User Interface Resource Center (

The ribbon

The ribbon, part of the Fluent UI, was designed to optimize key Word 2010 documentation scenarios to make them easier to use. The ribbon provides quicker access to all the commands in Word 2010 and allows for easier future additions and customizations. You can also customize the ribbon. For example, you can create custom tabs and custom groups to contain frequently used commands. To help maximize the editing of your documentation space on the page, the ribbon can also be hidden while you write.
Backstage view

The Microsoft Office Backstage is part of the Fluent UI and a companion feature to the ribbon. The Backstage view, which can be accessed from the File menu, helps you find frequently used features for managing your Word documentation files. (The File tab replaces the Microsoft Office Button and File menu that were used in earlier release of Microsoft Office.) The Backstage view is used to manage files and the data about the files, such as creating and saving files, inspecting for hidden metadata or personal information, and setting file options.

File format

The Word 2010 file format enables new features such as co-authoring, new graphic and text effects, and new numbering formats. Word 2010 works with Office Word 2007 documents.
Protected View

Files from a potentially unsafe location (such as the Internet or an e-mail attachment) or files that contain active content (such as macros, data connections, or ActiveX controls) are validated and can open in Protected View. When you open files in Protected View mode, the editing functions are disabled. You can open and edit files from trusted sources by clicking Enable Editing. You can also explore data about the files in the Backstage view.

Collaboration and sharing features

Word 2010 supports co-authoring functionality. Co-authoring functionality simplifies collaboration by enabling multiple users to work productively on the same document without intruding on one another’s work or locking one another out. Office 2010 offers co-authoring functionality for Word 2010, Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, and Microsoft OneNote 2010 documents on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. New co-authoring functionality is also supported for Microsoft Excel Web App and Microsoft OneNote Web App. When working with documents that are not located on a server that runs SharePoint Server 2010, Word 2010 only supports single-user editing. The changes are as follows:

* New content is automatically highlighted.

* Author information for any added or shared content is identified by a color-coded bar showing the author’s initials.

* Version support lets users see when and by whom changes were made to a document, and automatically highlights changes relative to earlier versions of the document.

* Faster synchronization of pages so that changes are displayed to all authors in near real-time.

Document authoring and graphic enhancements

Word 2010 provides improved editing tools with a new set of Picture Tools that enable you to transform your documents into artistically engaging documents. New editing tools are as follows:

* Picture Correction Options

* Artistic Effect Options

* Background Removal

* Picture Layout Options
