Okay, I read where the developers of the Microsoft Office 2007 evidently
didn't have "power users" in mind when they were making their changes. Why
doesn't Microsoft make a special version of Office 2007 for power users?
I've been so frustrated trying to find things I've always used. I've yet to
discover the rhyme or reason for doing what they've done. I have to click
several times to do something that only would take one click before. I have
always personalized my toolbars in order to make my job easier. One click
saves a lot more time than having to go to several places to do some rather
simple tasks. Some of the things that were visible before aren't now and it
slows the worker down having to right click or go to different tabs plus the
corner arrow of an option. Looks like the object here would be to have less
keystrokes instead of more. The new version has been slowing me down and
that's not good for a busy office.
I don't like not being able to customize the ribbon because there are
certain options I would like to take off mine since they don't get used much,
if ever, and therefore, they seem to be "in the way". I'd like to customize
the icons on my QAT and I can't do that.
Surely, I can't be the only one who has found the new version to be
completely frustrating. It might be great for someone just learning the
computer. The next time you start making such drastic changes, make a
"beginner's" version and a "power user's" version. Users need to be able to
personalize more of it. Those personalizations make a huge difference in how
fast something gets completed.
