It will emulate/activate the Office 2003 menu in Word 2007, Excel 2007 and Powerpoint 2007.
If you have spent agonizing minutes trying to find features in Word, Excel or PowerPoint ribbons that would have been at your finger tips in Office 2003 you will soon appreciate UBitMenu, especially when you have to finish an important document under time pressure.
UBitMenu does not hide the ribbon interface, but adds the classic menu as a new ribbon.
