    What's new in PowerPoint 2013

    Presenter View automatically adapts to your projection set-up, and you can even use it on a single monitor. Themes now come with variations, which make it simpler to hone in on the look you want. And when you’re working with others, you can add comments to ask questions and get feedback.

    More choices for getting started

    Instead of opening with a blank presentation, PowerPoint 2013 gives you several ways to start your next presentation using a template, a theme, a recent presentation, a not-so-recent presentation, or a blank one.

    New, improved presenter tools

    Hassle-free Presenter View

    Presenter View allows you to see your notes on your monitor while the audience only sees the slide. In previous releases, it was difficult to figure out who saw what on which monitor. The improved Presenter View fixes that headache and makes it simpler to work with.

    1. Use Presenter View on one monitor Presenter View no longer requires multiple monitors. Now you can rehearse in Presenter View without hooking up anything else.
    2. Zoom in on a slide Click the magnifying glass to zoom in on charts, diagrams, or whatever you want to emphasize for your audience.
    3. Jump to a slide Use Slide Navigator to browse to other slides in the presentation.
    4. Automatic set up PowerPoint can automatically sense your computer setup and choose the right monitor for Presenter view.

  • Easily discover, visualize, and share insights from your data.

    What's new in Excel 2013

    You’ll find many new features that let you get away from walls of numbers and draw more persuasive pictures of your data, guiding you to better, more informed decisions.

    Top features to explore

    Get started quickly

    Templates do most of the set-up and design work for you, so you can focus on your data. When you open Excel 2013, you’ll see templates for budgets, calendars, forms, and reports, and more.

    Instant data analysis

    The new Quick Analysis tool lets you convert your data into a chart or table in two steps or less. Preview your data with conditional formatting, sparklines, or charts, and make your choice stick in just one click.

    Fill out an entire column of data in a flash

    Flash Fill is like a data assistant that finishes your work for you. As soon as it detects what you want to do, Flash Fill enters the rest of your data in one fell swoop, following the pattern it recognizes in your data.

    Create the right chart for your data

    With Chart recommendations, Excel recommends the most suitable charts for your data. Get a quick peek to see how your data looks in the different charts, and then simply pick the one that shows the insights you want to present.

    One workbook, one window

    In Excel 2013 each workbook has in its own window, making it easier to work on two workbooks at once. It also makes life easier when you’re working on two monitors.

  • Create custom apps fast without being a developer

    What's new in Access 2013

    What’s new in Access 2013? In a word, apps. An Access web app is a new type of database that you build in Access, then use and share with others as a SharePoint app in a web browser. To build an app, you just select the type of data you want to track (contacts, tasks, projects, and so on). Access creates the database structure, complete with views that let you add and edit data. Navigation and basic commands are built-in, so you can start using your app right away.

    Getting started with apps

    Building an app

    Using your SharePoint server or Office 365 site as a host, you’ll be able to build a polished, browser-based database app. Under the hood, Access apps use SQL Server to provide the best performance and data integrity. On the startup screen, click Custom web app.

    NOTE: With Access 2013, you can still create traditional desktop databases from scratch. Or, try out a template to create an app, a desktop database, or an Access 2010-style web database.

    Table templates

    Quickly add tables to your app using pre-designed table templates. If you’re tracking tasks, search for the Tasks template and click it.

    If you see the multiple-table indicator next to a template, that means Access will add commonly used related tables for you so you can get started with a truly relational database. Access creates views for each table that display data from related tables.

    External data

    Import data from Access desktop databases, Microsoft Excel files, ODBC data sources, text files, and SharePoint lists.

  • Create professional and impactful publications.

    What's new in Publisher 2013

    Microsoft Publisher 2013 adds new capabilities geared to help you add, change, and format pictures and text with new and improved effects, like glow and bevel, so that your publications have a creative snap without adding a lot of work to your plate.

    Adding and changing pictures

    Sometimes you want to try a bunch of pictures in different spots in your publication. Publisher 2013 simplifies the process for adding, changing, and swapping pictures.

    Adding pictures

    Publisher 2013 combines searching for pictures on your computer, from Office.com’s clip art gallery, and the web in one dialog.

    From the scratch area you can drag a picture onto your publication’s page and drag it back off again or swap for another picture if you don’t like the way it looks.

    Swapping pictures

    To swap two pictures, whether they are both on the page or one is in the scratch area, select one picture and drag it by the mountain and sun icon to the other picture until a pink highlight appears around the picture and release the mouse button.

    Creating picture backgrounds

    You can take your pictures and use them as the background for your publication’s pages. Right-click on the picture, choose Apply to Background and then either Fill to expand the picture to take up the entire background.

    Picture effects

    There are many new picture effects available. You can apply shadows, reflections, glow, soft edges, bevels, and 3-D rotations to your pictures. Select the picture and click Picture Effects, on the Picture Tools – Format tab.

  • Manage your email, schedules, contacts, and to-dos.

    What's new in Outlook 2013

    The first thing you’ll see when you open Outlook is a brand new look. It’s cleaner, but it’s also designed to help you focus on what’s important with a clear view of email, calendars, and contacts.

    Communicate

    Quickly switch between the main Outlook elements

    Just above the status bar at the bottom of the screen, you’ll find a clearer view of Mail, Calendar, People, and Tasks, for easy navigation.

    Customize your Inbox

    Rename the folders in your Inbox and move them around to support the way you work.

    Find
