In the new MSOffice 2007 microsoft is added a feature called Reduced Functionality Mode to stop piracy. This reduced Functionality mode is triggered whenever Office 2007 fails activation. In reduced-functionality mode, programs function similarly to viewers. When a program runs in reduced-functionality mode, many commands are unavailable or dimmed. Therefore, you cannot access those functionalities. Some of the limitations of reduced-functionality mode include the following:
- You cannot create new documents.
- You can view existing documents. However, you cannot edit them.
- You can print documents. However, you cannot save them.

Did you notice the Interface changes coming in the Office 2007 suite? The following are some of the features and screenshots of this. I am sure you will defenitely love this new, attractive interface and graphics. 🙂
Most of them will be the new trends of Interface design. For example the concept of “Contextual Tabs”. This is called as the heart of the new user interface….
The screenshots given below are taken from official blog of Mr. Jensen Harris and if you want to read more about this topic then please visit here and here
The traditional menus and toolbars have been replaced by the Ribbon — a new device that presents commands organized into a set of tabs.The tabs on the Ribbon display the commands that are most relevant for each of the task areas in the applications.

a single central location where a user can see all of these capabilities like share, protect, print, publish, and send in one place. File-level features were mixed in with authoring features.

The Contextual Tabs contain all the features you need for working with the selected object.The way it works is this: The default tabs for the application contain only the commands that are not object-specific. It turns out that this drastically simplifies the functionality you have to look through because so much of Word, for example, only works when you have a Table or a Chart or a Picture or a Header or a Drawing or a Text Box selected.
Galleries are the other huge attraction of the redesigned applications. Galleries provide users with a set of clear results to choose from when working on their document, spreadsheet, presentation, or Access database.
