Add Classic Menus and Toolbars To Office 2007’s Ribbon


Okay, so you’re not a big fan of the Office 2007 Ribbon, or just can’t use it right, but already own the software and don’t have any other options, Addintools has released this useful add-in that brings the menus and toolbars back to Word, Excel and Powerpoint. The add-in creates a new Robbin tab called Menu, which has all of the classic menus and typical toolbars you’d be used to with older versions of Office, but with all the new features added.

The menus/toolbars and Ribbon coexist, so this setup can allow advanced and old-fashioned users to both enjoy Office 2007. I love the Ribbon, but there are always going to be longtime users resistant to the change it represents, and unable to train to use the new software. It costs $30 for all three programs, or $16 for just one, but if I had someone who couldn’t use the Ribbon, that’s a small price to pay to keep the far more expensive Office suite useful
