Up to speed with Word 2007

The Ribbon showing Compatibility Mode

How you know when Word has opened a document in compatibility mode.

You're probably wondering, "what happens when I open my older documents in the new version of Word?"

Word 2007 can open files created in all previous versions of Word, 1.0 through 2003. Word will open older documents in compatibility mode. You know this because at the top of the document "(Compatibility Mode)" appears next to the name of the file.
