Office 2010 tips and tricks, right from your…screensaver

Remember the good old “Clippy”? “It looks like you are writing a letter, do you need help?”

A lot of people cursed the cute little paperclip for popping up at any time, but the idea of giving people small tips for common tasks is not that bad. Well, the tips are back, this time in your… screensaver. Microsoft recently released the Office 2010 “Getting Started” screensaver. 

Of course, we are no longer in the nineties, so the tips are animated, flashy… but the content is still very valuable.

Some caveats:

  • you need the .Net framework 4.0 (installed automatically if you don’t have it yet)
  • the content is pulled from an RSS feed on Office.com, so you do need access to that site
