How to get Office 2003 Menu on Office 2007

I must admit, although Microsoft Office 2007 is more pleasing to look at than Microsoft Office 2003, I really hate that it doesn't have the old Menu bars. The first time that I used Microsoft Office 2007, I literally took 30 minutes to finish a task that would have been finished in 15 minutes time on the old MS Office 2003. The reason? Because Microsoft decided that instead of making their menu bars visually appealing to complement office 2007, they decided to replace it with the Ribbon.

Anyways, it's because of this that companies that uses Microsoft Office 2007 have to train their employees because there's a very steep learning curve in using MS Office 2007. Of course, shortcut users won't have any problems since shortcuts on Office 2003 and 2007 are basically the same, it's the menu users who will have a problem.

Anyways, if you want to bring the menu bar of the Office 2003 to the Office 2007, you can use Classic Menu for Office 2007 from Now you don't need training and tutorials for Microsoft Office 2007 any more since Classic Menu will bring back the Menu toolbar that everyone who first used MS Office has been used to.

Classic Menu can be used for Word, Excel, Access, Outlook, and PowerPoint 2007 and it still retains all the new features of MS Office 2007 and features easy switching between the Ribbon and the classic menu bar. Nice. Think of all the money your company can save to avoid training on MS Office 2007.
