Yesterday I received an invitation to Microsoft® Office 2010 Technical Preview Program. Really great piece of software so far - it brings us some interesting improvements like ribbon in Outlook and Visio, new Office menu,...
At first I was really happy to join this program but after only one day I already encountered few problems. And I solved them all :)
The biggest and most irritating was when Outlook didn't display Reading Pane - it was showing folders and I was able to select them but there was no list of folder content and no Reading Pane. The only working solution was to fully uninstall and then install Office 2010 (tried Reinstall with no success). I have no idea why this has happened - it could be because of some extension for Outlook 2007 or something completely different (I Installed Office 2010 on my system where there was already Office 2007 and I didn't upgrade or uninstall it - same goes for all extensions for Office apps).
And here we come to the second problem - coexistence of two Microsoft Office Word versions. If you had at any point in past on your system two Word versions you have surly encountered this problem. When you use one of them and then you run the other one you always have to wait for that annoying window to close (something like "Please wait while Word is configuring") - but no more! The solution I'm going to tell you about is pretty simple. Actually I'm going to show you two different solutions with the same effect :) And none of them involves any kind of virtual system.
The first one is really easy: all you have to do is to run the other Word (the one you don't use often) with /a switch. You can create new shortcut with target value of something like:"c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE" /a
or you can add /a switch to your existing shortcut in Start menu.
This switch is intended to start Word and prevent add-ins and global templates (including the Normal template) from being loaded automatically. The /a switch also locks the setting files; that is, the setting files cannot be read or modified if you use this switch. You can find more useful switches in KB 210565.
The second solution is for those who like to edit registry. You have to create new DWORD (32-bit) value named NoRereg with value data equal to 1 at:- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options (Word 2007),- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options (Word 2003),- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Options (Word 2002) or- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word\Options (Word 2000).
Second solution is better because it doesn't limit your daily work in any way.

I opened a new Word document in MS Word 2007 and started typing. I noticed that all defaults for paragraphs, fonts and generally formatting are gone.
So in order to reset all formatting to defaults you have to delete or rename a certain file.
In Vista, that file is in: C:\Users\[yourname]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates
in that folder delete or rename file normal.dotm
If you want to reset all settings to factory defaults you have to delete a registry key for MS Word. For each version of MS Word the registry key is slightly different and is as follows:

Have you ever tried to create a document based on multiple documents saved on your MOSS 2007 portal.
With use of MS Word 2007 and SharePoint you CAN DO IT!
So basically you create a new document in a document library and than where you want to insert text, that is saved in another document you press Ctrl+F9 and you get a field like this one
What you do next is to write INCLUDETEXT and paste a shortcut to look like this.
Finally you press F9 and Word gets text from another file saved on MOSS 2007 looking like this:

Sometimes its useful to have 2 instances of PowerPoint opened at once. This can be achieved only by opening another instance as another user (Run as different user).
