Default I HATE the new versions of Office

I hate the new versions - when I called, I was told that the 2010 version
goes back to many of the ways of doing things in the older versions. Well,
it DOESN'T. You still have a bunch of tabs to look through for what you want
and then, half the time, I still can't find it. Help didn't answer the
questions either. I am SOOOO frustrated with these new programs.

Why does Microsoft think they have to keep adding bells and whistles to
things? Can't they sell a version that is simplified for people who aren't
trying to publish?

I have spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to insert a column in this
2010 version in an existing table. It was so simple in the 95 version.

You do it in exactly the same way - Select the column to the left of which
or to the right of which you want to insert the new column and then right
click and select Insert Column and then select the appropriate one of:

Insert Columns to the Left

or

Insert Columns to the Right

As Doug wrote, you can always use the context menus. However, assuming there
are still contextual tabs on the ribbon in Word 2010, that would be the
place to look for table-related options.

Hi Linda,

And just how much did you pay for your copy of Office 2010? If you really don't like Office, there are plenty of less capable
alternatives to choose from ...

I found this interactive guide helpful in finding new locations on the ribbon
(2003 - 2007). Maybe it can help you?
