This Tech Sharecase we focused on sharing of our comments, tips, tricks, complaints for using Microsoft Office 2010 products. The following is a list of the tips and tricks we covered:
- To minimize the ribbon, you can either double-click any tab or click the caret (a.k.a. chevron) in the upper right-hand corner.
- Pressing the Alt button will display hot keys for tabs or options within tabs. One can navigate the ribbon with these hot keys and forgo using the mouse.
- Office users can create sparklines within Excel using their spreadsheet data.
- Users are able to customize the ribbon to add or subtract new tabs or items within tabs. In order to do this follow: File>Options>Customize Ribbon.
- Conversion to PDF is standard in Microsoft Office applications under Save As. Users no longer need to purchase the Adobe PDF add-on.
- In PowerPoint, we explored SmartArt (Under Insert and Illustrations). This is a convenient way to add smart looking graphical displays of information not previously available in previous Office versions.
- The Quick Access tool bar above the tabs can also be modified to add or subtract different commands such as Print, Save, Open, Spell Check, et cetera–commonly used items.
- Screenshots of open browser or other application windows can be captured straight from PowerPoint under Insert>Images>Screenshot. Microsoft refers to the screenshots as Screen Clippings.
Also discussed were how Baruch may roll out global settings for Microsoft Office. Some options that may be a possibility follow:
- Standardize RSS Feeds with campus content
- Listen to voicemail messages from within Outlook.
- IM people through Outlook within the Baruch directory and outside public
- Web conferencing, one-to-many
- Voice over IP
