Get Faster Access to Common Word Tools and Information

Word 2007 (and 2010) offer ribbons instead of toolbars in an effort to make the program's plentiful features more accessible, but even so it often takes several clicks to find what you want.

You can also customize what information the status bar shows you, so Word reports exactly what you want to see.
