Demonstration of Microsoft Office 2013
Download Microsoft Office 2013 key features
Take a look at the new features available in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. The transition from Office 2010 to 2013 will be smooth because the functional layout is what we are used to but this new version offers more features. For example, Word will convert your PDF file to a document so you can easily update. Excel has a flash fill option which will automatically fill in values after you enter a few examples. PowerPoint has a presenter view which allows you to see the current slide, next slide, notes and pointer options while your audience sees only the current slide.
