Red face UBitMenu: Classic 2003 menu for Office 2007

Counts as a repair tool in my book as it 'fixes' the infamous ribbon of Office 2007 (Word/Excel/Powerpoint) by adding a 'classic' Office 2003 menu.

The classic menu appears as a new second tab in the 2007 ribbon. It doesn't replace it so you can use either - good for families when some like the 2007 menu system and others hate it...

Picture, description, English version download (and others) available at website - can't post hyperlink but a google search for UBitMenu should find it as the first result.

Freeware for personal use, commercial version available. I haven't tried it with the current beta of Office 2010 but it's supposed to work with that too...

Ya know, at the last place I worked, we tried it as a "test run" on a tech-savvy person's computer. She said it was awesome; had the features she wanted of 03 with the ability to use 07's features as well. HOWEVER, we decided NOT to roll it out to everyone, due to the fact that we figured that the average faculty/staff user NEEDED to learn '07, because our assumption was that future incarnations of Office would look more like '07 than '03. Man, did the faculty and staff howl when we switched 'em to '07 from '03. We did so because all the students were buying '07 in stores anyway (and not saving in '03 format). Sure, we could have went with the '07 to '03 format converter, but faculty must realize that, just like their students, they need to keep up with the times as well.

Excellent tool. I know many people who prefer the 2003 version than the 2007. This will be a handy tool. Thanks.

Default Another GREAT Classic Menu--It's FREE too!

It includes Classic Menu for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, and it's easy to use. Thanks Addintools. Sorry, I can not post the link address here, if you want to use it, just google addintools.

It could arguably be classed as a repair tool. Have you ever had to introduce a customer to Office 2007/2010 after their old pc has completely died and they have replaced it with a new machine with the new office preinstalled?

It is time consuming and frustrating for all parties involved this app allows for a side by side learn as you go type changeover. so i find it amazing
