What's New in Excel 2013?

The first thing you see when you open Excel® 2013 is a brand new look. It’s cleaner, but it’s also designed to help you get professional-looking results quickly. You will find many new features that help you draw more persuasive pictures of your data, guiding you to better, more informed decisions.

What's New in Word 2013?

With Word 2013, you can do more with your docs: pop in an online video, open a PDF in Word and reuse the content, or align pictures and diagrams with minimal fuss. The new Read Mode is clean and distraction free—and it works great on tablets. Teaming up is better too, with connections to SkyDrive® Pro and streamlined review features like Simple Markup and Reply Comment.

What's New in Outlook 2013?

The first thing you see when you open Outlook ® 2013 is a new look. It’s cleaner, but it’s also designed to help you focus on what’s important with a clear view of email, calendars, and contacts.


What’s New in Access 2013?

With the new Access, you don’t have to be a developer to quickly create custom browser-based apps. Access apps reliably solve business needs such as contact management, customer billing, and order tracking. The new “App Experience” makes navigating easy. Access ensures end users can find features and commands. You can control your Access apps with SharePoint® in a browser via Office 365™.

What's New in PowerPoint 2013?

PowerPoint® 2013 has a brand new look. It’s cleaner and primed for use on tablets, so you can swipe and tap your way through presentations. Presenter View automatically adjusts your projection setup, and you can even use it on a single monitor. Themes come with variations, which makes it easy to hone in on the look you want. And when you’re working with others, you can reply to comments and have meaningful conversations where they matter most.

What's New in OneNote 2013?

OneNote® is a digital notebook for capturing, storing, and sharing all kinds of information—notes, pictures, web pages, and media. You can access your OneNote information wherever you go on any device. Create notes, sketch a diagram, record a lecture, and connect them to related presentation files, photos, videos, web links, charts, and more.
