Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 is the home edition of Microsoft's productivity suite, providing all the key tools you need to complete your school and household projects effectively.

Word 2010 makes it easy to create letters, school reports, family newsletters and many other documents. And the new colour schemes, enhanced SmartArt graphics, screenshot tool and powerful image editing options ensure your work will look better than ever.

Excel 2010 is perfect for tracking expenses, or creating a household budget, or quickly analysing just about any set of figures. The new Sparklines, tiny one-cell charts, help to clearly summarise your data. And more conventional full-size charts are easier to create and edit than in previous versions.

PowerPoint 2010 allows you to convey your ideas through eye-catching and professional presentations. You're now able to embed videos into your presentations, edit them and add stylish special effects. And presentations can now be saved as videos, PDF or XPS files, so your recipients don't need a PowerPoint viewer to see them.

And OneNote 2010 is a comprehensive personal information management tool. Create a oneNote notebook and it's able to hold documents, text, video and audio files, web pages and other online resources, the ideal companion when you're just about to start any research project.

Please note, the download link will take you to the Microsoft Office Online site. Click the "Try Office 2010 for free" link, create an account if you don't have one already, and you'll be given the download link and product key necessary to activate the trial software.
