Document information is important in the sense that it provides details like author names, comments, or any other metadata such as tags, etc. In the previous versions of Microsoft Word the document information was available in the Prepare menu, but Word 2010 has made it more easy, now you can locate them via the Office button.
This post will cover two topics:
- Changing Word 2010 Document Properties
- Mark Work 2010 Document as Final
Looking for a quick way to convert .doc format into HTML? Recently I stumbled on a little gem called Doc To Html Converter. Sadly it is not a portable tool, but can still come handy. Just run the program, choose your Microsoft Word(.doc) file, select the destination where you would like to save the output, and hit Convert. Once the operation is complete, it will open the converted document in your default web browser. Read More
There are a lots of enhanced features that have been added to Microsoft's Office 2010 which make its interface more user-friendly. Office Button
is a nice addition and provides features that you will definitely need to use while editing your documents. It not only provides a very fancy menu, but also helps you manage your open documents, presentations, or spreadsheets at a much greater level.
If you need to include an image without its background in Word document
or Powerpoint presentation
and are not familiar with Photoshop or any other image processing tool, then there is no need to fret. Background Removal Tool
in Microsoft Office 2010 can do it for you. Among the long list of enhanced features in Microsoft Office 2010, there is Background Removal Tool
. Removing the background of any image is now only a couple of clicks away.
Now there is no need to install additional programs or utilities to capture screenshots, you can use Microsoft Office 2010's Screen Clipping
Tool. Adding screenshots to your documents and presentations in only a couple of clicks away. It is one of the important features of Microsoft OneNote that has been added in both MS Word 2010 and MS Powerpoint 2010.
Word Reader is an alternative to Microsoft Word 2003/2007, that can open documents of various formats. You can not edit the document, but only read it. If you are an impatient person and cannot wait for Microsoft Office to load up a simple document, then this tool does the trick. It opens the document 10 times faster than Office 2007.
The case here is almost similar to that of Adobe Reader, which has many 3rd party alternatives such as Foxit Reader, PDF XChange Reader, Free PDF Reader, and many others. Read More
One great thing about Microsoft Office 2007 is that it supports add-ins. Whether it be Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, or PowerPoint, you can install add-ins instantly. The add-ins can be enabled/disabled in each one of these programs, but what if you want to manage all add-ins from one simple tool?
I have collected two tools that will help you in managing the add-ins across all Office apps.
OfficeIns is a free portable tool that allows you to manage all add-ins from one simple window. It is developed by the great folks at Nirsoft, who apps I have previously reviewed here, here, here, and here. All you have to do is run the app and it will automatically list the detected add-ins.

Your Microsoft Office Word 2007/2010 documents or Excel 2007/2010 spreadsheets could get corrupted due to various reasons, two of the most common being data transfer error and hard disk crash. Once your documents get corrupted, it becomes quite difficult to recover them. Try opening a corrupt Microsoft document and you will receive an error that data is corrupt, which does not help us in any way. There are two ways to recover Word and Excel files, the first method is to buy an expensive recovery suite(which I would not recommend), and the second method, is below.
To recover Word 2007 documents we will use Damaged docx2txt
To recover Excel 2007 spreadsheets we will use Corrupt xlsx2csv
Both tools have been developed by S2 Services and are FREE. We will discuss both of them in details below.
If you use Microsoft Office PowerPoint to make presentations you will know that you can only embed wav audio files. The problem is that wav format is almost 10 times bigger in size when compared with mp3 format. The only working technique is that we can add a header to the mp3 file that will convince the PowerPoint that it is actually a wav audio file. This method will add the wav extension at the end of the file name but the format will remain as mp3, this is known as masking.
In my earlier post I reviewed a software called CDex, you can use it to add wav header to the mp3 file. First convert wav audio to mp3 format by clicking Convert Wav file(s) to mp3 format(s) button or selecting it from the Convert menu as shown in the screenshot below. Read More
