That happens to most people with MS 2010, don’t worry! They updated it at my college and I about freaked out. Once you can find everything, it starts making sense again pretty quickly.

@TinyTina: Ugh that happened to me when I switched versions of Office. It took me HOURS and a google search to figure out that if you click the big round Windows button that’s how you get to save as, print, etc. So annoying, and yes, I felt SUPER old, LOL!

I’m a teacher and have MS 2010 on only one of my 3 computers.  My students have to tell me where everything is. (And I am a MASTER at the old version.)  Being around teenagers always makes me feel tech-stupid.

I think the new version is way better though.  It makes sense once you get used to it.

Good luck!

Our office is SO behind the times. Most of the  office is still using 2003.

We are currently working on a firm wide upgrade to Office 2007. But that’ll probably take another 2 years to complete.

Not gonna lie. I love MS Office 2010. It can take forever to figure out though!

Word is so much easier to set up mail merges.

And the way they redid Excel makes things a lot easier to find. The locations make sense (for the most part).

I can totally understand your frustatation though!

Oh and when I save documents, I have to save to the lower verison (97-2003) so other people can open it.

I’m 22, taken classes in college on it, and I still don’t know how to use all of it either! I often find myself thinking of what I want to do, and how I did it in MS 2003, and get frustrated because I don’t know how to do it in the new one!
