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?

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
