Does anyone have a recommendation for a good software program that will replace the Office 2010 ribbon with the Office 2003 menu for all Office applications?

You can customize the ribbon:

and you can hide it. But I do not think you can turn it back to Office 2003. I have not seen such a skin. Natively you cannot do this.

While it takes some getting used to, ulimately it is not changing back, so best to get used to it. It does work fairly well.

i've seen many programs for sale and free online claiming to offer an add-in for the 2003 menu.  before trying one, i'm hoping someone on experts exchange can provide recommendations.

I can provide testimonial for AddinTools:

We used this for our users on Office 2007 since they were not comfortable with the ribbon.  This worked perfectly and was worth the price for us.

It works by adding another option to the ribbon called Menu, which underneath that is the 2003 menu style.

I'm using the addintools on a trial basis and so far it's OK.  Thanks bigeven2002.
