Microsoft Office 2013 - Ten new features
Two big themes stand out about Office 2013: The Metro makeover, and an expanded degree of integration with Microsoft’s Windows Live. Sign into Windows Live via Office, and the “open or create documents” pane that appears upon opening an Office app will contain a link to your SkyDrive account. (The hard part, at least in the preview beta, is signing back out: The Office preview only lets you switch Live IDs, not sign out completely and use Office only in local mode again.)
Microsoft plans to release the touch-centric Office it has long planned to ship for Windows in mid-2015.
Microsoft today released previews of its touch-centric Excel, Word and PowerPoint apps for Windows 10, making good on the pledge two weeks ago to give customers an early look this month.
Microsoft issued invitations for a Sept. 30 event where it will unveil the next version of Windows, according to multiple online reports.
