Extension Upgrading all Computers to Office 2010

| Leave a comment

By the end of October, Microsoft will stop releasing software patches and updates for Office 2007, which will make it vulnerable to threat. Extension employees who are using Windows 7 are being upgraded to Microsoft Office 2010. If you have not yet upgraded to Office 2010, download the software yourself by following the installation instructions on the Extension intranet. The upgrade will require a computer reboot to successfully complete installation.

In Office 2010, you will find the same user features that were in Office 2007, and training is not necessary. Office 2007 documents are fully compatible in Office 2010. Visit the Office 2010 website for detailed information about the product.

For more information about Extension's support and installation of Office 2010, contact the IT helpdesk at 612-624-6700 or submit an online help ticket.
