Holiday Gift Guide: Tech Gifts – Microsoft Office Home and Business 201

With all the writing that happens in our home it is important that we have software that can help us to get done what needs to be done. With our small business and writing a variety of documents, having a word processor program is essential. We have always used Microsoft Office from the early days of Windows which is important when relying on software makers.

And with each year and newer editions, capabilities and ease to use just continues to get better. I have never had a problem with a document, and with features like their auto and backup save, if your program gets shutdown gives you a chance to recover. We were sent a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 to review and use it everyday. What else is important is sharing documents which are always simple and there is never a complication or formatting problem.

We also use Excel a lot for many things. To keep track of schedules, to organizing budgets and planning itineraries it is just as important to have a good spreadsheet. Again Microsoft Excel is great for easy sharing with anyone, and its simplicity. If you really want to have fun, take some classes or buy some books on excel. You would be amazed what all can be done.

Using Microsoft software is always gives us a peace of mind, because they are trusted and know what they are doing. We are Windows users and have relied on windows for over 20 years.

There are many other programs in the Microsoft Office Suite and there are different versions for different needs. But we also find yourself using PowerPoint and Outlook. Check out Microsoft Office for your home or business office needs.
