Add old Word 2003 classic menu layout to Word 2007

I have been using office 2007 for sometime now and become quite used to the know how, features and tools location in Microsoft Word 2007.

With Office 2007 released the old classic menu layout which includes File | Edit | View and so on is replaced by the new web 2.0 tabbed ribbon interface which includes Home | Insert | Page Layout and so on ( as shown in the image below).

But, I have seen lot of people wasting so much time to actually locate different features like Format ,Tool and Table etc which appears simply in the old classic word 2003 menu layout.

Let’s see how can you restore the old classic word 2003 menu layout in word 2007.

There is a small program called MS Word 2007 Ribbon to Old Classic Menu Toolbar Interface Software 7.0 which lets you apply the old classic menu layout in word 2007 (as shown in the image below).

I agree with Mac, this ribbon should be freeware! $20?? For something I just bought, to make it look like what I thought I was getting?

I don’t like this Word format, it’s for babies with all the pictures. I spent a lot of years learning Microsoft Office products. I wish they’d have improved functionality and added features instead of just making it look like something a 2nd grader could use.
