    It doesn't look like they offer any more different colour schemes to choose from. I'm sure MS could have easily done it, but as usual they are in a different world. I'm sticking to 2010, as I like to see what is on the screen

    Why haven't they released it with the usual patches?

    Yeh still got the horrible light colour schemes. Its a real downgrade interface from 2010 sadly.

    I have to use the Dark Gray theme as well, just so I'm not blinded lol

    Won't be rolling this out to any normal users, its a real dud. Only good thing is PDF editing and I can just get people to send it to me to do.

    EDIT: Hmm "no products effected by this install found on your system"

    Windows Update is just for Windows updates. Office updates are downloaded from Microsoft Update.

    There wouldn't be any point now that MS has moved to a yearly release cycle for Windows. i.e.

    Windows 7 SP2 = Windows 8
    Windows 7 SP3 = Windows 8.1
    Windows 7 SP4 = Windows 9

    So they dont have to support it as long. Though doing a build and capture takes a day now.

    Is there any identification that SP1 is installed? I've installed it manually on a server and I can't see any difference. If I go into "About Word" it doesn't say SP1 anywhere.

    Edit: Just seen SkyDrive has changed to OneDrive so something's happened.

    There is...

    How to tell if you have SP1 installed
    In order to determine if SP1 is installed for Office 2013 or a related product, look for the program version in the list of installed programs in the Programs and Features control panel. If SP1 is installed, the version will be 15.0.4569.1506 or higher. Additionally, if you've installed the SP1 update for an MSI product, SP1 will be listed in Installed Updates in that same control panel.

    @zag. Wouldn't your users find the following feature useful?

    Open Excel workbooks in separate windows and view them side-by-side « Office Blog
