Office 2013 Quick Start Guides (from Microsoft)
Microsoft has made available Office 2013 Quick Start Guides for Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio, Access, OneNote, and Project. According to Microsoft, the guides contain “useful tips, shortcuts, and screenshots to help you find your way around.” These PDF cheat sheets should go a long way toward making users more comfortable with the many changes to the Office interface in the newest version (which will be released to the general public in the first quarter of next year).
To download one or more of the guides, click this link. Then click the icon for a specific guide in order to download it. (Note that the icons are shown in alphabetical order by program — i.e., with Access first and Word last.) The PDF should open in another window, at which point you can use File > Save As to download it.
Thanks to Sherry (McGovern) Kappel for posting a link to the guides on LinkedIn!
 A beta version of Office 2013 is available now. It is my understanding that some large business customers have access to the full retail version, but that version won’t be widely available until the winter or spring of 2013.
 Note that you need Adobe Reader (or a similar program) in order to open and read PDF files.
