As the leading software suite developer, Microsoft has made sure to continually offer upgrades to the various programs available in the suite. This will ensure that users will get to enjoy new features that cater to their changing needs and with the ever evolving technology. What are the new upgrades and enhancements to the Microsoft Office 2010? You can find out more about them below.

Save Your Documents Online

With the old version of the Microsoft Office, there are only two ways to save your files or documents: 1) to the computer hard drive, and 2) using a flash storage device. But what if none of these two options are available? The new saving feature for the office documents from Microsoft is a great solution to that. All you have to do is upload your files to a SkyDrive Account in Windows Live, such that you can access it from any computer at anytime you want. There is up to 25 GB of free online storage that you can make use of, plus you can also edit and save changes to your documents online.

Integrate Web Videos to PowerPoint Presentations

This is a perfect new feature for the 2010 Microsoft Office users who like to prepare business presentations. The ability to embed video clips straight from the web is ideal to make more comprehensive presentations, especially if you do not have video clips readily available. All you have to do is copy the embed code for the specific YouTube video that you want to use and paste it on your presentation such that you can stream it when showcasing your presentation.

New PDF Writer Saving Option

With the new Microsoft Office, there is a new saving option that enables you to save your documents in PDF format in a single click. Hence, there is no need to go through the hassle of editing the document settings to use the PDF format since you can easily choose this option when saving with a new PDF native support.

Improved Printing Capabilities

The revamped print dialog for Microsoft Office 2010 has made printing that much simpler! If you were to compare it with the old version, then you will see a huge improvement with the printing menu. Hence, you can utilize more advanced printer settings to suit your needs.

Enhanced PowerPoint Features

The 2010 version of Microsoft PowerPoint has been revamped to produce more extensive slideshow presentations. In fact, with the new Microsoft Office, it is now possible to deliver live presentations. The enhanced features also enable others to access and view your presentations from anywhere in the world as long as they have internet connection.

In addition to the above changes to the PowerPoint, video editing is also possible such that you can add styles and other effects to your video clips that are used for the presentation. Or, you can cut the video clips into many short clips that will be distributed throughout your presentation.

The new improvements in the 2010 version of Microsoft Office has opened up more possibilities for individuals who wanted to maximize the use of this software suite.
