www.office.com/setup Blogs: The best comparison I’ve seen if by an Internet Hosting and infrastructure provider called Sherweb that provides a side-by-side review of updates:
- Office 2010, 2013 & 2016 at →
The Interface changes more noticeably from Office 2010 to 2013 then to 2016. And the BIG change in Office 2016 is it’s integration with online and teamwork features. On upgrading to 2016 we immediately exploited Outlook’s now integrated ‘Clutter’ feature and began to make use of the integration of ‘Groups’ that was absent before.
In Office 2013 and now 2016 the availability of the ‘Recent Items’ list is a small feature that we find ourselves using all the time, particularly to attach a file to an Outlook message.
PS We routinely try to make the move from one Office version to another a bit easier by installing the ‘old reliable’ Office 2003 menus from a company called UBit.

This small, fast, and light add-in makes a new [Menu] tab available in all the later office versions that lets folks be productive while learning what’s new at their own pace.
What Are the Differences between Microsoft Office 2010 and Office 2016?
The posts, below, have many bits and links that outline the new options that were added to each version of Microsoft Office. I appreciate the information and the useful resources. It is interesting to note that each author has some feature in MS Office that caught their attention.
What Changed for Me
The big difference was the switch from desktop computers to devices: Phones, Tablets and iPads. Almost 60% of all computing is now done on a hand-held device, not a desktop PC. Microsoft bought Nokia, the phone company, and all of the Touch Screen patents that Nokia owned.
The Ribbons definitely changed from Microsoft Office 2007 to 2013. The Ribbon is almost twice as big, so that I can click with my fingers, instead of my mouse.

New Quick Clicks
The Quick Clicks provide rich options right next to whatever I am editing-Picture, Chart, Text-without having to scroll up to the top of a very little screen.

If you look at the bottom of Microsoft Excel, you can see the plus (+) sign by the Tabs. Doesn’t that remind you of the (+) that you use on your SmartPhone to add a new Contact? Hello, New Tab
Consume or Create?
In class I make a distinction between consuming information:
I read it on my SmartPhone.
…And creating knowledge:
I analyze the data and publish the findings professionally.

My Humble Opinion
I believe that Microsoft is seeking the right pathway with their flagship product Microsoft Office. The options in Office 2016 are integrated with the business version of Microsoft Office 365. Being part of a server, especially an Exchange server, puts a lot of business savvy into the hands of a small business. These tools were very expensive to deploy and maintain in my own office: hardware, setup, support.
I am looking forward to the next steps.
Good question. Thanks for asking.
