Restore 'classic' menus to Office 2007

If you're anything like me, seek help. Oh, I mean, if you're anything like me, you probably had trouble adjusting to Office 2007's Ribbon interface.

With UBitMenu, old-fangled Office menus are just a Ribbon tab away.

With UBitMenu, old-fangled Office menus are just a Ribbon tab away.

If you're anything like me, seek help. Oh, I mean, if you're anything like me, you probably had trouble adjusting to Office 2007's Ribbon interface.

Heck, I knew Old Office's pull-down menus inside and out. Now, after all these years, I'm supposed to relearn simple tasks like how to open a document or adjust line spacing? Thanks, but no thanks, Microsoft R&D.

If you feel the same way, you'll be glad to discover UBitMenu. This free plug-in restores those beloved pull-down menus to Office 2007. And it keeps the Ribbon, too, which is good for users who want to learn the new interface without totally abandoning the old one.

After installing UBitMenu, you'll see a new tab next to Home: the aptly named Menu. Click it and you'll find File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, and all the rest of those long-lost drop-downs.

Even better, UBitMenu retains most of Office 2007's souped-up features, like the more robust Save As sub-menu. You get the best of both worlds.

For anyone frustrated because they can't find common Office features, UBitMenu is a godsend. And it's free! Does that just make your day or what?

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
