Useful features that stripped from Excel 2013. Part II



File Open

In older versions, you can display the File Open dialog by clicking the File tab and choosing Open or choosing Open from the QAT. Now both ways in Excel 2013 display the Backstage View instead. This is very annoying.

To bypass the Backstage View as follows:

Click the File tab and then choose Options.
Choose Save in the left pane.
Check the Don’t Show The Backstage When Opening Or Saving Files option.
Click OK.

More Backstage changes

Excel’s Exit command (File tab, Office button, and File menu) closes all open files at once. It’s no longer available in the Backstage View. It’s not totally gone, though. You can add the Exit command to the QAT or right-click the application icon on the Windows Taskbar and choose Close All Windows.

In addition, you can no longer create a new workbook based on an old one using the New command. In Office 2013 applications, use the Recent section (on the File tab) to work only with open files, using the Open From Copy command on the shortcut menu. You can still use Windows Explorer to locate a document and choose New instead of Open to work with unopened files.

Some chart types are gone

Excel 2013 users can’t insert a 3D cone, pyramid, or cylinder chart. Microsoft recommends that you create a 3D rectangle chart and then change the shape after the fact.

Fax templates

Fax templates aren’t included out-of-the-box (for most of the Office applications), to reduce the size of the Office installation. You can still download most of them by clicking the File tab, choosing New, and then typing fax into the Search For Online Templates control.

All simultaneous workbooks are open in separate windows

Excel 2013 opens all simultaneous workbooks in separate windows (Windows 8). It’s similar to having several instances of Excel open. It means that Excel 2013 deprecated settings for the Show Windows in Taskbar options.

Clip Organizer and Picture Manager

The Insert Media dialog box replaces the Clip Organizer in Office 2013. This new feature lets you insert online content from online clip art collections and other online sources. In addition, Windows Photo Gallery replaces Picture Manager.

To summarise:
I have been using MS Excel, MS Word, MS Access from the very earlier versions (Windows 3.0). Fort that time they created great software, very handy and easy for use.

Every time Microsoft 'upgrades', the most of the users feel aggravated. They discard useful stuff, add a lot of useless features. New versions are more and more complicated instead of being simplified.
I noticed that now in Word or Excel 2010 I usually spend much longer time for the very basic tasks which I performed in the earlier versions just in few clicks.

Why does Windows XP and Office 2003/2007 continue to have such a wide usage? And all the latest versions of Windows (Vista, 7, 8) are being criticised by the majority of the users.
