Microsoft Office 2010 (codenamed Office 14[7][8]) is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite for Microsoft Windows.[1] It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2007 and the predecessor to Microsoft Office 2013. Office 2010 includes extended file format support,[8] user interface improvements,[9] and a changed user experience.[9][10] A 64-bit version of Office 2010 is available,[11] but not for Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.[12][13] It is the first version of the productivity suite to ship in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.[11][14]

On April 15, 2010, Office 2010 was released to manufacturing;[1][15][16] the suite was subsequently made available for retail and online purchase on June 15, 2010.[17] Office 2010 is the first version to require product activation for volume licensing editions.[18][19] Unlike previous versions of the productivity suite, every application in Office 2010 features the ribbon as its user primary user interface.[9][20][21] Mainstream support ended on October 13, 2015; extended support ends on October 13, 2020.[4]

Office 2010 marks the debut of Office Web Apps, online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote that work in web browsers.[22][23][24] Office Starter 2010, a new edition of Office, replaced the low-end home productivity software, Microsoft Works.[25][26][27] Office Mobile 2010, an update to Microsoft's mobile productivity suite, was released on May 12, 2010 as a free upgrade from the Windows Phone Store for devices running Windows Mobile 6.5 and a previous version of Office Mobile.[28][29][30]

As of December 31, 2011, approximately 200 million licenses of Office 2010 have been sold.[31] Microsoft reportedly discontinued sales of Office 2010 on January 31, 2013.[32]

Office 2010 is the last version of Microsoft Office to run on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, as its successor, Office 2013, does not support these operating systems.[33][34][35][36]

History and development[edit]

Development started in 2007 while Microsoft was finishing work on Office 12, released as Microsoft Office 2007. The version number 13 was skipped because of the fear of the number 13.[7] It was previously thought that Office 2010 (then called Office 14) would ship in the first half of 2009.[37]

On April 15, 2009, Microsoft confirmed that Office 2010 would be released in the first half of 2010. They announced on May 12, 2009, at a Tech Ed event, a trial version of the 64-bit edition.[38][39] The Technical Preview 1 (Version: 14.0.4006.1010) was leaked on May 15, 2009.[40]

An internal post-beta build was leaked on July 12, 2009. This was newer than the official preview build and included a "Limestone" internal test application (note: the EULA indicates Beta 2).[41] On July 13, 2009, Microsoft announced Office 2010 at its Worldwide Partner Conference 2009.

On July 14, 2009, Microsoft started to send out invitations on Microsoft Connect to test an official preview build of Office 2010.[42] On August 30, 2009, the beta build 4417 was leaked on the internet via torrents.[43]

The public beta was available to subscribers of TechNet, MSDN and Microsoft Connect users on November 16, 2009.[44] On November 18, 2009, the beta was officially released to the general public at the Microsoft Office Beta website, which was originally launched by Microsoft on November 11, 2009 to provide screenshots of the new office suite.[45] Office 2010 Beta was a free, fully functional version and expired on October 31, 2010.[46]

In an effort to help customers and partners with deployment of Office 2010, Microsoft launched an Office 2010 application compatibility program with tools and guidance available for download.[47] On February 5, 2010, the official release candidate build 4734.1000 was available to Connect and MSDN testers. It was leaked to torrent sites.[48] A few days after, the RTM Escrow build was leaked.

Microsoft announced the RTM on April 15, 2010, and that the final version was to have speech technologies for use with text to speech in Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Word. Office 2010 was to be originally released to business customers on May 12, 2010,[49] however it was made available to Business customers with Software Assurance on April 27, 2010, and to other Volume Licensing Customers on May 1.[50] MSDN and TechNet subscribers have been able to download the RTM version since April 22, 2010. The RTM version number is 14.0.4763.1000.[51][52]

On June 15, 2010, Office 2010 reached general availability.

On November 17, 2010, Microsoft sent out invitations to a select number of testers at the Microsoft Connect portal to test a beta build of Office 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1).[53] The final version was released to the public on June 27, 2011,[54][55] with a version number of 14.0.6029.1000.[2]

On April 8, 2013, a beta build of Office 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) was released.[56] The final version was released on July 16, 2013,[3] with a version number of 14.0.7015.1000.[2]

New features[edit]

The Backstage View is a new feature to Office 2010, providing an overview of the current document, the ability to edit document properties, and options for tasks such as sharing, printing, and rights management[57]

Office 2010 is more "role-based" than previous versions; there are features tailored to employees in "roles such as research and development professionals, sales people, and human resources."[10] In its Internet implementation, Office 2010 incorporates features of SharePoint Server and borrows from "Web 2.0" ideas.[10][58]

Microsoft Office 2010 includes updated support for ISO/IEC 29500:2008, the International Standard version of Office Open XML (OOXML) file format.[8] Office 2010 provides read support for ECMA-376, read/write support for ISO/IEC 29500 Transitional, and read support for ISO/IEC 29500 Strict.[59] In its pre-release (beta) form, however, Office 2010 only supported the Transitional variant, and not the Strict.[60][61] The intent of the ISO/IEC is to allow the removal of the Transitional variant from the ISO/IEC compliant version of the OOXML standard.[61]

Microsoft Office 2010 also continued support for OpenDocument Format (ODF) 1.1, which is a joint OASIS/ISO/IEC standard (ISO/IEC 26300:2006/Amd 1:2012 — Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.1.[8]

New features also include a built-in screen capture tool, a background removal tool, new SmartArt templates and author permissions. The 2007 "Office Button" was replaced with a menu button that leads to a full-window file menu, known as Backstage View, giving easy access to task-centered functions such as printing and sharing.[57] A notable accessibility regression from 2007 is that the menu button scores worse with the Fitts's law accessibility calculation than previous versions. A modified Ribbon interface is present in all Office applications, including Office Outlook, Visio, OneNote, Project, and Publisher.[9] Office applications also have functional jump lists in Windows 7, which would allow easy access to recent items and tasks relevant to the application.[62][63][64] Features of Office 2010 include:

  • Ribbon interface and Backstage View across all applications
  • Background Removal Tool
  • Letter Styling
  • The Word 2007 Equation editor is common to all applications, replacing Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0
  • New SmartArt templates
  • New text and image editing effects
  • Screen Capturing and Clipping tools
  • Live collaboration functions
  • Jump lists in Windows 7
  • New animations and transitions in PowerPoint 2010
  • View Side by Side/Synchronous Scrolling in Word 2010

A new feature in Microsoft Office 2010 is Outlook Social Connector, which allows users to connect to and receive updates from their social network inside Microsoft Outlook. When users view their emails a name, picture, and title is available for the person they are contacting. Upcoming appointments can also be viewed with this new feature and users can request friends. Outlook Social Connector currently supports Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace and Windows Live Messenger.[65]

The Volume edition can be activated using a Multiple Activation Key (MAK) which is limited by the number of times a machine can activate when connected to Microsoft's servers,[19] or using a Key Management Server (KMS) which requires activation every 180 days.[19]

Editions[edit]

Starter Edition[edit]

Office Starter 2010 was an ad-supported product that was discontinued in June 2012, prior to the release of Office 2013 and Windows 8.[73] It included Word Starter and Excel Starter, reduced-functionality versions for viewing, editing, and creating documents. Office Starter 2010 was only available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to preload on Windows PCs and was intended as a replacement for Microsoft Works;[25][26][27] it is only compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.[74] The advertisements are displayed in the lower right area of the task pane. It also includes PowerPoint Viewer 2010, to view and print PowerPoint slides and shows. Users who have Office Starter installed are allowed to load it on a USB drive and run it temporarily on any computer to which the USB drive is connected.[75]

Office Starter 2010 is available to OEMs for pre-loading on new computers as part of the Office 2010 OEM Pre-installation Kit (OPK). It installs as a virtual application using Microsoft App-V application virtualization technology,[76] and can therefore co-exist with full editions of Office. Office Starter 2010 omits several features available only in the full paid version of Microsoft Office. Word Starter cannot insert footnotes, endnotes, citations, indexes, captions, equations and SmartArt and does not support customizations, macros, change tracking, full screen reading and digital rights management.[77] Excel Starter does not support PivotTables, PivotCharts, custom views, external data connections, error checking, calculation steps and circular references.[78]

Office Web Apps[edit]

Main article: Office Web Apps

Microsoft now offers a free web-based version of its Office productivity suite, known as Office Web Apps, that started shortly before Office 2010 was released to retail stores.[94] Office Web Apps include online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. The web apps allow sharing and collaboration of documents and files and also feature user interfaces similar to their desktop counterparts. Office Web Apps were released to Windows Live Skydrive and SharePoint Workspace on June 2010. You may use the free web-based version of Office to create documents, and can download Office Viewers to view the documents on your system.

Office Mobile 2010[edit]

The office suite for Windows Mobile by Microsoft is updated together with Office 2010. Windows Mobile 6.5 or higher is required to run Microsoft Office Mobile 2010.
Some of the new features included are:[95]

  • Presentation Companion: The add-on to PowerPoint Mobile allows users to control a presentation through their Windows Phone and display speaker notes.
  • Conversation View: Outlook Mobile threads related emails into a group for easier reading and management
  • SharePoint Workspace Mobile: The new application allows users to sync documents from SharePoint servers directly to their Windows Phone for offline viewing and editing.
  • Support for New Content in Office 2010 such as SmartArt graphics and charts

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Office 2010 received mostly positive reviews upon its release, with particular praise for the modified Ribbon and the new Backstage view. Laptop Mag rated the suite 4 out of 5 stars, referring to it as “the best Office suite yet” because of the new customization options provided by the Ribbon, the new multimedia editing capabilities, a new option to share presentations online via PowerPoint, and application response times. The inclusion of OneNote in all retail versions of Office 2010 also received high praise.[96] In a similar vein, PC Magazine also rated the suite 4 out of 5 stars because of its new multimedia editing capabilities. The inclusion of the Ribbon in all Office applications was received positively because it enhanced consistency and usability. The new Backstage view was also praised because of the way it exposes file management and printing options. However, PC Magazine expressed dissatisfaction with Microsoft Outlook, because it “hides or omits options that are front and center in all other Office apps.” Outlook was also criticized for its apparent inability to only print a single page of an e-mail message. The stability of Office applications was also a concern, as crashes were experienced during tests. Nevertheless, Office 2010 was regarded as a "dazzlingly attractive upgrade” that received the magazine's Editors' Choice and Best of the Year 2010 accolades.[97] Office 2010 also received positive reviews from Alphr,[98] PC Advisor,[99] PC World,[100] and TechRadar.[101]

Not all assessments and reviews were positive. Randall C. Kennedy, writing for InfoWorld considered the modified Ribbon in Office 2010 to be a "disorganized mess;” criticism was also leveled against the new Backstage view for being presented in a full-window pane, instead of a drop-down menu similar to Windows 7 applications that use the Ribbon and previous versions of the productivity suite. Sluggish performance was also a subject of criticism, though the review was written before development of the product had completed.[102]

Reactions to the various product versions, including the 64-bit version of Office 2010, were mixed. Emil Protalinski, writing for Ars Technica, believed that Microsoft’s transition to a 64-bit version of the productivity suite would facilitate the industry’s adoption of 64-bit software.[11] However, concerns about backward compatibility and performance issues were raised.[103][104] After the product’s launch, Microsoft stated that "the 64-bit version of Office 2010 is likely to introduce compatibility issues" and recommended the 32-bit version for most users;[105] the Office 2010 setup program installs the 32-bit version by default unless a 64-bit version is already installed on the target machine.[14][104] In a departure from previous versions of Office, Microsoft did not offer an upgrade version of Office 2010—a move that was criticized for effectively increasing the cost of the productivity suite for users already running a previous version.[103][106][107] While the new Product Key Card program was considered to be an alternative to an upgrade version because of its affordability when compared with a full retail purchase,[107][108] it presented a limitation not seen with a full retail version in that its license prohibited the software from being transferred to another machine.[108][109]

The Starter edition of Office 2010 received mostly positive reviews;[110][111][112] a feature omitted from other editions of Office 2010 that received praise was To-Go Device Manager, which allowed users to copy Office 2010 Starter installation files to a USB flash drive and use its programs on another PC, even one where a version of Office was not installed.[110][112] However, criticism was directed at the edition’s lack of functionality and its mandatory advertisements.[113][114][115]

Sales[edit]

The initial two-week sales of Office 2010 were lower than those previously observed with the suite’s predecessor, Office 2007, a fact considered by Stephen Baker of NPD Group to be “disappointing.”[116][117][118] Baker attributed this lack of sales to "a seasonally slow period for PC purchases" and an "increasingly saturated installed base." Free alternatives to the productivity suite, such as Google Docs, were not regarded as a contributing factor;[116][117] however, this view was not shared by all journalists.[119][120] In spite of initial sales that were lower than expected, sales of Office 2010—particularly consumer sales—contributed to a record first-quarter profit for Microsoft during its 2011 fiscal year.[121][122][123][124][125] While other products contributed to this record, Microsoft Business Division, the division responsible for Office, earned the highest percentage of total revenue during this time period.[124][126] As of November 1, 2010, over six million copies of Office 2010 were sold, a figure that represented "more than 30 copies being sold every minute."[127]

Details related to Microsoft's second-quarter earnings during the company's 2011 fiscal year were posted on January 27, 2011, showing that the company had set a record for second-quarter revenue of $19.95 billion. The Microsoft Business Division grew by 24% year-over-year, with Office 2010 becoming the fastest-selling consumer version of Office in history; license sales of Office 2010 were also "over 50% ahead of Office 2007 over an equivalent period following launch."[128][129][130] Results during the company’s third-quarter 2011 fiscal year were later strong, with Microsoft's Business division expecting to see "Office sales exceed PC demand in fiscal 2011.”[131]

On June 15, 2011, a year after Office 2010’s general availability, Microsoft Office corporate vice president Takeshi Numoto stated that deployment of the productivity suite among business customers was “five times faster” than that of its predecessor, Office 2007, and that the latest version was “the fastest-selling consumer version of Office ever” with a copy being sold every second since the product launched;[132] the claim was previously made by Microsoft in January during the Consumer Electronics Show.[133][134] Based on this claim, Network World estimated that an approximate 31.5 million licenses were sold since Office 2010’s launch.[132] Office Web Apps proved to be popular as well, with Nuoto stating that it had seen over 50 million unique visitors since its launch.[132] By July 2011, over 100 million licenses were sold,[135] which contributed to record Q4 earnings and annual revenue.[136] However, year-over-year consumer revenue for Office had declined by 8 percent, though revenue from Microsoft’s Business Division had increased by 27 percent during the same period.[137]

During the second quarter of Microsoft’s 2012 fiscal year, the company reported a revenue of $20.9 billion—another record for the company—with Office 2010 being a contributing factor, having sold nearly 200 million licenses as of December 31, 2011,[31] in spite of declining Windows sales.[138]

Microsoft reportedly discontinued sales of Office 2010 on January 31, 2013, just two days after its successor, Office 2013, reached general availability.[32]
