Over a period of many years, I have used various versions of Microsoft Office. When I switched from Office 2003 to Office 2010, I was confronted with the new ribbons, and have been on a slow learning curve. I frequently switch back to Office 2003, knowing that I can accomplish tasks much more quickly using familiar drop down boxes and numerous self-created custom macros.
I recently ran across software known as "Classic Menu for Office 2010". The software installs a "Menu" button that opens a set of Office 2003 drop down boxes for use in Office 2010. CNET gave the 2007 version of this software good reviews, but provides virtually no information about the 2010 version. I'm always hesitant about installing non-mainstream add-in software, so I'm looking for some additional software reviews or other thoughts about transitioning to the newer software without losing valuable time.
