File Formats in Microsoft® Office 2010
Microsoft Office 2010 is the advanced productivity suite from the Microsoft Corporation. It is powered by new and advanced features with updated user interface. Another major visual difference that you notice is the addition of a File menu tab to the ribbon, which replaces the Microsoft Office logo that appeared in the upper left corner of the Microsoft Office 2007 applications. Ribbon menus in the Microsoft Office 2010 are back in force, with a couple of interesting differences. As the names of the menu tabs and their default contents remain nearly identical in all the applications, you are allowed to customize the ribbon to your heart's content, adding your own tabs or removing the default ones.
