Guide to Microsoft Office Suite

Microsoft Office SuiteMicrosoft Office Suite is basically a desktop based office automation software. The three essential components of an Office Suite are MS Word, MS Excel, and MS PowerPoint. These suites are available in a variety of editions. Each edition carries the above mentioned components. Depending upon the edition, you can find other components such as MS Outlook, MS OneNote, and more. Microsoft introduced the Office bundle in the early 90s when Windows was still DOS dependent.

MS Office 2003 to MS Office 2007 was a giant leap when Microsoft changed the standard user interface to Ribbon Interface. As of now, the latest version is Office 2010 which also has a cloud version that enables you to store files to Microsoft Servers and access them from anywhere. This Guide to Microsoft Office Suite helps you understand the different versions of Office software, changes made to each version as technology progressed and more.
