Word 2002 Upgrade

If you use a PC, you almost certainly use the Office productivity suite. Word 2002 is the word-processing package in Microsoft's new version--Office XP. With many new features such as Task Panes, Smart Tags and integrated e-mail, there is even more functionality in this application. Task Panes are dynamic windows that pop up in response to specific actions you're performing within a document--suggesting, formatting or mail merge options, for example. Smart Tags, similarly, are icons that appear when you perform a particular task: hover over them and a dropdown menu appears.

Encarta 2002 Standard

Encarta Standard is the new edition of Microsoft's bestselling reference tool, this edition bringing new features and loads of new content and add-ons, such as auto-updates and streaming media. The interface itself is quite easy to get to grips with, although stylistically just a little bit boring. It is clean and uncluttered however, and because of this it moves quickly from screen to screen. The search is very good, and offers the functionality surfers are used to on the best search engines, such as word substitutions in case of misspelling, and lists of similar entries, as well as loads of links to editorially screened non-Microsoft quality content sites, on specific topics. Those familiar with the Windows operating system will find navigating this software very easy. At the top is the usual toolbar, with File, Edit, View, Features, Tools, and so on. The easy reach of these menus make moving around the software simple, and stress-free, as well as quick to learn.

AutoRoute Great Britain & Europe 2002

Route planning software is always very popular and looking at the capabilities of AutoRoute 2002 it is not surprising. This CD-ROM is full of tweaks and twists beyond its central function of producing journey plans, including a database of potential stopping off points for any trip, ranging from ATMs, railway stations and hospitals, to golf courses, museums and sports facilities, via places to eat, shop and stay--you can get the software to show as many or as few types of place as you like along a chosen route, and to search any radius round a point you desire.
