Microsoft updated its Office suite of applications in 2007, giving the suite a new look and dozens of new features that
enhanced the Office experience over previous editions. Three years later, Microsoft released Office 2010, which further
updated the Office applications and added some features not included in Office 2007.
* The Microsoft Office Ribbon was introduced in Office 2007. Featured only in Microsoft Word, Excel, and
PowerPoint, the Office Ribbon replaced the traditional menu structure of earlier versions of Microsoft Office and
was designed to simplify the user interface. With Office 2010, Microsoft included the Office Ribbon as a major
feature in all its Office applications, including Outlook, Visio, and OneNote. A notable difference between the 2007
Office Ribbon and the 2010 Office Ribbon is the replacement of 2007's "Office" button with a full-featured "File" tab
in Office 2010 version.
