Hi. I was wondering whether there is any app that can make Office 2007 to look like Office 2003? I love the features of Office 2007 but hate the ribbon.

Classic Menu for Office 2007

"...the software allows you to work with Office 2007 as if it were Office 2003."

Cool. But is there any freeware application that can do the same thing?

If there was one I would have given a link.

Microsofts new features in OS and Applications open a door for software developers and they make profit from the few people that dislike Microsofts way of redesign ..

another company is already selling the classic startmenu for Win7 .

Sorry, but you are a minority and so will have to buy what MS doesn't want you to have per their default policy.

On the other hand : why not just use Office 2003 ? It works well on Vista and surely will also do on 7 . If you have a Professional or Pro plus License for Office 07 you might be entitled to downgrade to 2003 at no cost.

At first it took me a while to like the ribbon but after using word and especially excel so much you do begin to see the advantages and how quick/easy it becomes.

anyways here is a downgrade chart from MS
