Microsoft Office 2010 (codenamed Office 14 ) is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. Office 2010 was released to manufacturing on April 15, 2010, and was later made available for retail and online purchase on June 15, 2010. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2007 and the predecessor to Microsoft Office 2013. Research and development of Office 2010 began in 2006, before the release of its predecessor.
Office 2010 introduces user interface enhancements including a Backstage view interface that consolidates document management commands into a single location. The ribbon introduced as part of Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word in Office 2007 is the primary user interface for all apps and is fully customizable in Office 2010. The design of Office 2010 incorporates features from SharePoint and borrows from Web 2.0 ideas. Other new features include extended file format support; co-authoring features that allow multiple users to share and simultaneously edit documents; integration with SharePoint and OneDrive; and security improvements such as the introduction of Protected View, a new read-only, isolated sandbox environment to protect users from potentially malicious content. Office 2010 is the first version of the productivity suite to ship in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, but the 64-bit version is not officially compatible with Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. It is also the first version to require product activation for volume license editions. It is the last version of Office compatible with Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 as its successor, Office 2013, does not support these operating systems.
Office 2010 marks the debut of Office Online (formerly Office Web Apps), a collection of free web-based versions of Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Word. Office Starter 2010, a new edition of Office, replaced the low-end Microsoft Works home productivity software. Office Mobile 2010, an update to Microsoft's mobile productivity suite, was released on May 12, 2010 as a free upgrade from the Windows Phone Store for Windows Mobile 6.5 devices with a previous version of Office Mobile.
Reception to Office 2010 was generally positive, with critics praising the new Backstage view interface, the new customization options for the ribbon, and the incorporation of the ribbon into all apps. While sales were initially lower than those of its predecessor, Office 2010 was a success for Microsoft, surpassing the company's previous records related to adoption, deployment, and revenue. Microsoft sold approximately 200 million licenses of Office 2010 as of December 31, 2011, before its discontinuation on January 31, 2013. Mainstream support for Office 2010 ended on October 13, 2015; extended support will end on October 13, 2020.
