Office has become the office suite of reference in household and business sectors. It has known how to evolve over time, adding new functions and updating those that it already incorporated, and yet another demonstration of the latter is the fourteenth version of this suite: the so-called Microsoft Office 2010 that arrived to replace Office 2007 and that comes along with a series of updates for all its tools.
The 2010 version of the reference office suite
The functions offered by this suite through its different tools, allow us to carry out many different tasks that range from the management of our email to the administration of databases, including writing text documents, creating slideshows and generating spreadsheets with their corresponding charts and tables.
The office pack of reference for domestic and professional users.
Its main advantage is its versatility, as its use has been adapted to both the easiest household projects and the most demanding work environments that may require a more complex management of documents. To such an extent that Microsoft's office pack has been embraced by other platforms and used a reference by other companies to develop similar tools, to such an extent that we can find the office pack (and others developed by its rivals) available on macOS and mobile platforms such as Android, and it even comes along in a portable version that we can carry around with us wherever we go.
In view of the importance of this software, many users want to know where they can find a serial or product key to be able to use it for free. We're obviously not going to provide you with the means to get hold of a pirate version of Office, but we're sure you can easily find what you're looking for on Google. We recommend you to use the free trial version and if it turns out to fulfill your expectations, then see if you can afford to purchase a license.
The programs included in this office suite
- Word: text processor.
- Outlook: email client.
- Excel: for the creation of spreadsheets.
- Publisher: design of publications r.
- OneNote: creation of notes and cloud storage .
- Access: management of databases.
- PowerPoint: creation of presentations.

Apart from this list of applications focused on increasing our productivity, we've also got to point out the presence of InfoPath and SharePoint Workspace, only available in corporate packages as we explain below.
Without leaving business aside
Microsoft hasn't neglected the corporate aspect and its current needs, and that's why this pack includes Communicator, the communications center for the management of instant messaging, phone calls and video conferences. Furthermore, it speeds up file transfers and allows the shared use of applications.
To such an extent that this aspect can be expanded with Microsoft Path and Microsoft SharePoint Workspace, software for the creation of forms and a platform to work and collaborate online between different team members, respectively. We have to add to these features, the possibility that it offers us to access it from anywhere around the world, whether from a PC, a web browser or using a smartphone.
What's new in Office 2010
- More elegant design despite maintaining the Ribbon interface.
- Evolution of the Office button that now opens a full panel instead of a menu.
- Renovated preview of Word content.
- New translation and screenshot tools.
- New minicharts for Excel.
- PowerPoint now allows the integration of videos with a built-in player.
- Outlook groups conversations within emails.
Where can I download Office 2010 free for Windows?
Well, unfortunately, Microsoft no longer offers the download of this version of its office suite, so you won't be able to get hold of a copy by means of any legal channel. In fact, on the official website of Office 2010, the guys at Redmond directly recommend you to download the version 365 of their software. And even if you managed to get hold of an online installer of this program, it no longer works: you'll be waiting around all day while Microsoft tries to "recover your records". So, it's time to change and go for a much more modern version as is the case of Office 2016.
