    Hi All

    Does anyone know free software which will allowed you to change Office 2007 menu
    to classic Office 2003. I found so far only this one:
    http://www.addintools.com/english/menuoffice/
    but is not free.

    Maybe any of you know something more about changing Office 2007 ribbons layout to look familiar to Office 2003.

    Thanks for any help

    Marcin

    Why would you want to do that! The Office 2007 ribbon takes a bit of getting used to but it is well worth persevering as it's much easier to use than the old layout.

    I don't mind ribbon

    But some of my customers prefer Office 2003 style. And they don't like changes.

    I read and article a while back (sorry, couldn't fin link) where MS said they deliverately didn't give the option to go back to 2003 style menus as opposed to the new ribbon interface.

    As you say, a lot of people struggle to adapt to it. I still find I am "missing" easy menu commands and have to go searching for them :x

    Its a learning curve, thats all. Its like learning to type on an ergonomic keyboard. At first its hard and a pain in the arse. You just want to give up and go back to what you had.

    But in time, if you persevere, you will get used to it and, in a lot of cases, find it makes you more efficient.

    Of course, I'm still in the struggling phase a bit myself.
