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.

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