Recent changes to look & feel of Office 2013 for McGill users


If you use Microsoft Office 2013, you may have noticed a few changes this past week:

  • Theme changes - The colors & appearance of MS Office applications are different.
  • McGill University icon - When you click Save As (or Open), there is a new McGill University icon, which looks as if it will save your file to McGill cloud storage.  It is not a McGill cloud; clicking this icon saves the document in your My Documents folder on your computer.
  • Recent files list - Your Recent files list was emptied. Rest assured that no files were deleted; they are still located wherever you last saved them.  Only the Recent shortcuts from MS Office applications have been removed.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the ICS Service Desk.
