Microsoft Office 2010 Discount Professional for 2 PC
Microsoft Office 2010 is a version of the productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. Office 2010 includes extended file format support, user interface updates, and a changed user experience. A 64-bit version is available, although not for Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.
Released on April 15, 2010, the suite became available for retail and online purchase on June 15, 2010 and is the first version to require product activation for volume licensing editions. Every application features ribbons in its user interface.
The 2010 suite marks the debut of the Web Apps, free online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, which work in web browsers. Office Starter 2010, replaced the low-end home productivity software, Microsoft Works. Microsoft's update to its mobile productivity suite, Office Mobile 2010, is released for Windows Phones running Mobile 6.5 and Phone 7.
Backstage is a brand new feature to 2010, providing document overview and options. 2010 is more "role-based" than previous versions. There are features tailored to employees in "roles such as research and development professionals, sales people, and human resources". In its Internet implementation, 2010 incorporates features of SharePoint Server and borrows from "Web 2.0" ideas.
New features also include a built-in screen capture tool, a background removal tool, new SmartArt templates and author permissions. The 2007 "Office Button" was replaced with a menu button that leads to a full-window file menu, known as Backstage View, giving easy access to task-centered functions such as printing and sharing. A notable accessibility regression from 2007 is that the menu button scores worse with the Fitts's law accessibility calculation than previous versions. A modified Ribbon interface is present in all Office applications, including Outlook, Visio, OneNote, Project, and Publisher. Applications also have functional jump lists in Windows 7, which would allow easy access to recent items and tasks relevant to the application. Features of 2010 include:
• Ribbon interface and Backstage View across all applications
• Background Removal Tool
• Letter Styling
• The Word 2007 Equation editor is common to all applications, replacing Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0
• New SmartArt templates
• New text and image editing effects
• Screen Capturing and Clipping tools
• Live collaboration functions
• Jump lists in Windows 7
• New animations and transitions in PowerPoint 2010
• View Side by Side/Synchronous Scrolling in Word 2010
A new feature in Microsoft Office 2010 is Outlook Social Connector, which allows users to connect to and receive updates from their social network inside Microsoft Outlook. When users view their emails a name, picture, and title is available for the person they are contacting. Upcoming appointments can also be viewed with this new feature and users can request friends. Outlook Social Connector currently supports Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace and Windows Live Messenger.
The Volume edition can be activated using a Multiple Activation Key (MAK) which is limited by the number of times a machine can activate when connected to Microsoft's servers, or using a Key Management Server (KMS) which requires activation every 180 days.
