Office 2010 Download

While we're waiting to get our hands on Office to bring you a full Office 2010 review later this year, here's a first look at what we can expect from the new version of Office.

The technical preview of Office 2010 won't be available until July, but when Microsoft used it to show improved integration with Windows 7 at its TechEd conference this week we were able to find out more about some of the new features in the desktop apps as well.

The ribbon introduced in Office 2007 is here to stay, but now it has the Windows 7 styling.

Instead of the same round Office icon marking the Office menu (which replaces the File menu and isn't obviously a menu), there's a button in each app that looks like the buttons for the different tabs on the ribbon, in the signature colour of that application (green for Excel, blue for Word, red for PowerPoint, yellow for Outlook and so on).

That's much more like the menus in the RC versions of Paint and WordPad, and rather easier to spot.

The app windows also get their window menus back (they were removed in Office 2007); these use the icon for each app and let you restore, move, size, minimise, maximise or close the window. They're very minor changes, but they take Office some way back towards the standard Windows user interface.
