Tip #2: Meet the New File Menu—The Office Button
Are you trying to find out how to print, create a new document, or save as? It took me a moment. The Office Button, shown in Figure 2, on the upper-left corner is the new File menu.
Figure 2 Clicking the button in the upper-left shows the new File menu.
In addition to what was included on the File menu, this new menu offers shortcuts to Digital Signature and Encryption tools, the Inspect Document and Compatibility Checker tools, and other new features. Be sure to check out the PDF and XPS add-in if you find you need to convert documents to these formats; a shortcut to download the feature can be found from the Save As menu.
