I Don't do Windows Microsoft workshop May 8 in Cody

Posted April 23, 2007

P O W E L L, W y o. - Now that Microsoft has launched Vista, its newest operating system, and updated its office suite to 2007, a lot of businesses will be making decisions about whether or not to upgrade. To make that process easier, the Northwest College Cody Center for Training and Development is offering an overview of Microsoft's Windows Vista and Office 2007 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, May 8.

In addition to previewing Vista, seminar speaker Marla Muscio will also provide some resources to help participants evaluate whether or not an upgrade is advisable for their personal and professional use. Participants will see the new "aero glass" technology and learn what additional computer requirements are needed for the various versions of Vista.

Muscio said after six years in development, Office 2007 presents the biggest change in the Office suite since the 1997 version. She'll demonstrate some of the latest release's new additions and the new interface being introduced in all the suite applications. In discussing the transition from menus to the use of ribbons, tabs and groups, she'll explain how they relate to Office 2003.

"This seminar is not meant to convince participants to make the switch," Muscio said, "but rather to provide an overview, demonstration and some resources to help them decide if these are upgrades they want to make at this time."

Cost for "I Don't do Windows" is $25 per person and includes lunch. Registrations must be received by Monday, May 7.
