Office 2007 Search Commands – Download Available

Microsoft has released its Office Search Commands, formally code named “Scout”,  utility which allows you to search for commands in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Just type in a phrase such as insert table and the ribbon will be filtered down to just show you options that match that criteria.

The following is an example of the default Search Commands ribbon without any search criteria:

While typing in the words insert table you can see what happens to the ribbon:

NOTE: This is not supported by Microsoft — my guess is you can look for this to be built into Office 14.
