What are default settings?
As far as Office 2010 default settings are concerned, these refer to the values that are assigned automatically to the software program. These settings are usually meant to make the device usable right after purchase. The users can easily change these default settings as per their individual preferences and requirements.
Role of Office 2010 default settings
Default settings are common settings that make your software program usable right after purchase. These settings are also useful for the beginners who are new to using Office 2010 and will change the settings only after getting an idea of the basic features. Changing default settings will give a friendlier environment to work upon, as you may not be comfortable using all that was pre-set for you.
In Office 2010, the color scheme is pre-set to Baby Blue by default. Although it does not affect your performance, it affects the way you see your screen and use your program. If you are not comfortable with the Baby Blue color scheme, you can change it to any color you want from the range of color schemes.
By changing the commands on 'Quick Access' toolbar, you can include several commands such as 'New Comment', 'New Document', 'Save', 'Redo', 'Undo', 'Email' or 'Save As'. You can also move the toolbar under the ribbon or above it, as per your personal preferences.
When you copy a material from the Internet, you need to choose an option from the 'Paste Special' feature so that it looks organized on MS Word. The 'Live Preview' feature allows you to see a preview of the material so that you can know how it will look like in your Word document. The 'Live Preview' feature has been turned off by default in Office 2010. You can turn it on to be able to make use of it.
The 'Quick Steps' feature allows you to create multi-step commands which can be applied to the email messages. For example, if you want to forward several messages to a person, then instead of clicking 'Forward', typing his name and clicking on the 'Send' button every time, you can create a 'Quick Step' to do all this with a single click. In order to be able to use this feature, you will have to create your Quick Steps as per your own requirements and preferences.
