Migrating to Office 2007 (PC)

Information Technology Services (ITS) now has Office 2007 for PC and Office 2008 for Mac available for all faculty and staff computers on campus. To ensure success during the transition, ITS and Human Resources' Learning and Development are working collaboratively to provide you with a host of resources - from Microsoft Web site to instructor-led demonstration workshops.

For more information contact Janet Lee, Technology Trainer, at janet.lee@lmu.edu or 310.338.7771


Frequently Asked Questions

Where did my familiar 2003 icons and toolbars go?
Go to the application section below. Click on the "Interactive 2003 to 2007 Command Reference Guide" link to learn more. All you need is to click on the commands that you used to perform in 2003, the tutorial will show you the new locations of the same command in the 2007 interface. Very cool!
