Microsoft Office Software

Microsoft Office 2016 is the latest version of Microsoft’s productivity suite that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and more, and it will be made available to the Saint Peter’s University campus community very soon! Through new and improved tools, it promises to improve productivity, increase efficiency and develop your creativity.

How Office 2016 Compares to Previous Versions

Here’s a complete listing of changes that occurred between Office 2010 and Office 2013.

The biggest changes that took place between Office 2007 and Office 2010 were the addition of the customizable ribbon (the top menu bar), and “Backstage view” (file properties). Office 2013 improved on this by adding the “Modern Style Interface” within applications, a new start screen, updated sync across devices, touchscreen compatibility, formatting, additional graphics options, and the ability to log in to your account. A few of the changes made in Office 2016 include new themes and functions, but mostly collaboration tools, features, and compatibility. The look and feel of Office 2016 is very similar to 2013 and 2010 – however these new features will greatly enhance your experience.
