Office 2007 Classic Menu Add-in gives you the best of both worlds

Well, I installed the trial version on the secondary laptop and I fell in love. Suddenly I had the best of both worlds – all my Ribbon tabs were still there, but so was a new Menus tab that had the old toolbars on it...

Add Office 2003 tools and menus to your Office 2007 interface

This add-on re-creates the Office 2003 menus, adapted to present Office 2007 commands — for instance, the add-on's View menu for Word contains 2007's Draft and Full Screen Reading commands instead of the old Normal and Reading Layout commands....

Office 2003 menus come to Office 2007

If that was all the add-in could achieve if might be enough for some people. With some of the cleverness in the Office 2007 ribbon you can make the Office 2003 menus available as a backup to the new interface....

You can speed through your work day

You can speed through your work day just like you always did, you don’t have to learn a new UI. If you are an employer, you don’t need to hold training sessions and explain to your employees how the Office 2007’s ribbon UI works...

I love you - I love you!!  I just downloaded the classic toolbar program from you and you are a life saver!!!
I started a new job a couple months ago and haven’t worked on a PC in about 5 years (I’ve been using a Mac) and the Office 2010 toolbars are a joke. After 2 months of frustration from searching for various actions that aren’t on my toolbars, I came across your download. So I just wanted to say THANKS!!!! You have made my life SO much easier!

Dear Sirs,
I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your Classic Menus program. Without it, I would not be prepared to use Microsoft's latest Office software.

Thank you very much for your very useful advice. Everything worked perfectly.
May I take the opportunity of saying how much I like the Classic menu for Office product. It is absolutely excellent and has saved me many, many hours of frustration.  I’ve recommended it to several colleagues, who are equally satisfied.

Thank you so much for your kindness and sense of service. I think your products are wonderful and regularly recommend your add-ins, which make life easier with the impossibly complicated new Office products.

Thank you again,

You Rock!  It worked like a charm!
You don’t know how much I appreciate this application!!!  I still can’t believe that Microsoft doesn’t have this built into their Office 2007 product.  You folks to the rescue :o)
Have a great weekend!



Awesome! Thank you so much for your helpful and speedy response. I followed the instructions for the uninstall and download, and it couldn't have been easier. Word even opened faster than before.

Thanks for great service. I'm sure as more people upgrade to Office 2007, you'll be hearing from lots of folks frustrated by not being able to perform tasks quickly as they did with Office 2003. Feel free to use my "testimonial" for your marketing.



I had been remaking the tool menus, what a pain, does MS know that you do not
change something that already works great. Well, I found Addintools threw a Google
search and installed your software, you don't know how wonderful it is to have my
customized toolbar back after almost a year of their "NEW" look. All is fine now
thanks to your staff at Addintools.

Thank you, Roy
