I have been using the Microsoft Office Labs ‘search commands’ for a while now and it’s a pretty useful tool when you just don’t know how the heck to do something in Word, Excel or PowerPoint 2007.

You can download an additional tab for your ‘ribbon’ that gives you a search box to type in your query and it magically tells you how to do what you need to do. Just click on the result you want and it does what you need it to do.

Problem is, it doesn’t tell you HOW it did it, so you don’t get to learn anything. Can’t have everything, I suppose.

Simply go to the Office Labs search command page and download the .msi file, run it and next time you open Word, Excel or PowerPoint the last tab on your ribbon will be the ‘Search commands’ tab.
