Microsoft Global Version Office 2016 Professional Online Key
Microsoft made massive changes in Office 2016 for Windows but has
hidden most of the changes beneath a reassuringly familiar-looking
surface. With the new version, the world’s most-powerful and widely
used office application suite leaves its online and desktop-based
competition even further in the dust, especially in its convenient
and deeply integrated collaboration features.

Office 2016 – A colourful new look and better for sharing
The most obvious change in Office 2016 is simply a tweak to the
overall styling. Where Office 2013 sparingly used the signature
colours that denote each app, for 2016 those colours are now
splashed across the title bar and Ribbon menu via the default
This replaces the previous White theme, with Dark and Light options
remaining and being essentially identical to that of Office 2013.
This extra dose of colour ties in with Windows 10, which includes a
new feature that lets program developers choose the colour of the
title bar, without having to create a completely custom design.
The title bar and Ribbon are also ever so slightly larger than
before and the labels for the Ribbon menu tabs have moved from all
capitals to just the first letter being capitalised. It all adds up
to a noticeable change though not an altogether significant one.
The same could be said of the other main changes that span the
whole Office suite. There are just just two of them and for many
people they’ll be of next to no consequence.
The first is the Share button that sits next to the account button
on the right of the menu bar. This allows you to quickly share the
file you’re working on with your One Drive contacts or create a
link to your files to share via email.
However, unlike the more universal share feature that allows any
Windows 10 app to quickly share content with a variety of cloud
storage and social media services, this only works in conjunction
with One Drive. Without an account the whole menu is left blank –
there’s no option to choose dropbox instead, for instance.
As such, if you largely work alone and share files through
different means depending on the project – email for one client,
dropbox for another – it’s a near irrelevant addition.
However, the other cross-program (except OneNote and Publisher)
change is far more universally useful. The Tell me feature is a
search box that’s used for finding menu items that the user either
doesn’t have on the Ribbon menus or can’t find on them.
It’s a really useful addition and does a good job of interpreting
what you type, suggesting possible answers even if no menu item
specifically matches the words, e.g. returning “Add a chart” if you
type “graph”. However, it doesn’t tell you where the menu item
otherwise resides so you can’t learn the feature’s whereabouts as
