Welcome to the most popular office productivity software in the world. If you’re already familiar with Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2010, you’ll find that the new Microsoft Office 2013 is familiar enough to use right away with minimal training, but comes jam-packed with additional features to make Office even more useful than ever before. If you’ve been using a much older version of Office (such as Office 2003 or earlier), you’ll find Office 2013 to be a radical leap forward in both features and its new user interface.

Like most software, the real challenge is figuring out where to find the commands you need to do something useful. While this book won’t turn you into a Microsoft Office 2013 expert overnight, it will give you just enough information so you can feel confident using the new Office 2013 and get something done quickly and easily without tearing your hair out and losing your mind in the process.

In this book, you find out how to master the “Ribbon” user interface along with discovering the dozens of new features that Microsoft added to your favorite program in Office 2013. More importantly, you find a host of shortcuts and tips to help you work faster and more efficiently than ever before. Whether you rely on Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, or Outlook, you’re sure to glean something new from this book to help you master Office 2013 on your own computer.
