Guide on New Microsoft Office 2010 Features

* New Quick Steps Feature
Quick Steps are easy-to-use one-click buttons which perform multiple actions at once. You can create your own buttons that combine your most frequent actions.

* Improved Conversation View

An improved Conversation view is now available. Emails (including Sent items) are now grouped by subject into conversations. These conversations can be expanded or collapsed within the Inbox.

If a conversation is no longer relevant to you, you can prevent additional responses from appearing in your Inbox. The Ignore command moves the whole Conversation and any future messages that arrive in the Conversation to the Deleted Items folder. You can find it on the Home tab, in the Delete group, click Ignore.

* New Outlook Social Connector

The all-new Outlook Social Connector connects you to the social and business networks you use, including Microsoft SharePoint, Windows Live, and other popular third-party sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, so you can get more information and stay in touch with the people in your network without leaving Outlook.

* Mail Tips

Mail Tips are a series of prompts and warnings that appear in Outlook 2010 to let the user know when they are about to take a potentially undesirable action. For example, Mail Tips can warn a person when they are about to Reply All to an email that they were originally BCC’ed on, thereby revealing that they received the original email.

* Large Mailbox Support

Outlook 2010 can handle much larger mailboxes. Where the previous version of Office could support up to around 2Gb cache files without risking corruption, Outlook 2010 can safely support up to 20Gb cache files.

Changes in Word

* New Navigation pane
Navigation pane has been integrated with the Find feature, which allows you to search for headings, graphics, tables, equations, etc., quickly.

* New Art Effects in WordArt
WordArt has been updated with new colorful art effects. Select the text, click WordArt and a list of options will appear. You can see how your text will appear when you hover the mouse over the option-which is the best part.

Changes in Excel

* New Sparklines Feature
Small cell-sized charts that you can embed into a spreadsheet cell to summarize data and to visualize trends.

* New Slicer Feature
The new Slicer feature enables you to filter data in PivotTables and see which filters are applied without having to open additional menus.

* Conditional Formatting
The ability to apply a format to a range of cells, and then have the formatting change according to the value of the cell or formula -- has been improved as well, including the addition of more styles and icons.

* Enhanced Table Features
Enhanced Table Features now make it possible for filtered headings to remain intact while scrolling through a large table without having to scroll to the top to perform a filter.

Changes in PowerPoint

* Enhanced Video Editing and Controls Capabilities
A set of basic video editing tools is built directly into PowerPoint. It is now possible to fade video in or out, trim videos, and add synchronized overlay text. You can also add bookmarks to indicate time points of interest in a video or audio clip, or use bookmarks to trigger animations.
Also useful is a set of video controls you can use during the presentation to pause, rewind, fast-forward and so on -- something that the previous version of PowerPoint did not have.

* Improved Animations Features
Animations have been significantly improved in PowerPoint 2010. There are now far more animations to choose from, and it's easier to use them via the Ribbon.You can also more easily edit your animations with a custom animation feature. And there's a nifty "Animation Painter" that lets you take any animation that you've selected or created, and apply that animation across multiple slides, without having to do it manually for each slide.
