Optional switch between the ribbon and "old" drop down menus and toolbars
Each time I use Word and Excel, I long for the demise of the "ribbon" and the return of plain, normal drop down menus and customisable tool bars. These were far more accessible, and still the norm in many none Microsoft applications.
Please replace the ribbon in all Office applications with traditional drop down menus and icons, or make it option. I use a specialist trackerball, often with difficulty due to hand and arm coordination difficulties, so ask Microsoft to make this change.
Hi Sarah. If you use the Command Ctrl+H you can access the "Find and Replace" dialog box that can find text and replace it for you. Please let us know if you need any additional clarification.

Can anybody tell me, apart from searching in the top right of Word, how can I access "search & replace"?
Boy, I really miss Alt + E, then R (or was it E?)! Please vote, I REALLY miss the menus in Word & Excel, and adding to them!
