There is no menu in Word2007, and the added Office Button is a menu-like button. Office buttons are located in the upper-left corner of the Word2007 window, and you can click the Office button to open the Office buttons panel, including public commands such as new, open, close, save, and print, as shown in Figure 1.

In commands on the Office Button panel, there is an arrow to the right of some commands, which indicates that the command has a next level menu. Careful observation reveals that when the mouse points to the Save As command and the Print command, the Print button contains a split line, while other commands with arrows do not have a split line. A command with a split line can itself be executed, and a command without a split line can only execute its next-level menu command, as shown in Figure 2.

In a previous version of Word, such as Word2003, you can display multiple Word child windows in the Word main window. Each child window can display a Word document, so you can close the current Word document window individually without closing the main Word window. However, the word child window feature is canceled in Word2007, and each Word2007 document window includes a full set of Word controls, so the Close button that closes the current Word2007 document window has been canceled in the upper-left corner. Users can close the current Word2007 document window by clicking the Close command in the Office Button panel without closing the Word2007 window, as shown in Figure 3.

When you don't see a submenu in the Office Button panel, the list of recently used Word documents appears on the right side of the Office Button panel. There is a fixed button on the right side of each history Word document name that you can click to fix the record in the current position without being replaced by the name of the subsequent history Word document, as shown in Figure 4.

The Office Button also contains an important button, the Word Options button. The Word Options dialog box lets you turn on or off many features or set parameters in Word2007, as shown in Figure 5.
