Switch back to the MS Word 2007 Classic Menu

The reason that would compel someone to try out such an application may be explained by the simplicity and the user-friendliness that describe the menus of Word 2003, resulting in a complication free document writing experience.

Even though the release of Office 2007 with its ribbon interface was a major success, some of the users remained faithful to the previous edition; even those who migrated to the newer one, confronted with the novelty of the ribbon menus, expressed stronger feelings towards the old version.

Supported Word versions

However, those who fit into this category can still enjoy Word menus, as they once were, with the aid of MS Word 2007 Classic Menu. Contrary to what the name of the software implies, it works with Word 2010 and 2013 as well.

How it works

Upon deployment, you can locate it under the Add-ins section of Word, where it implements a toolbar that comprises all the menus of the old 2003 release, namely File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Table, Window and Help.

All of these trigger dropdown lists, which include all of the functionality of the old Word, thus bringing back the exact look and feel that fans of Office 2003 are looking for. However, the ribbon appearance remains enabled at all times in other tabs, except the Add-ins section.

Bottom line

There isn’t much left to say about MS Word 2007 Classic Menu; it’s smart, easy to deploy and does not impair the overall functionality of Word.
