The other day I came across an interesting little problem. In Office 2003 there used to be a tool called the “Save My Settings Wizard.” This would allow you to save all of your custom Office settings to a backup file that could be moved from computer to computer. For some users, their Office settings represent hours of setup time, so this was a handy little program to have access to.
Now, in Office 2007, it would appear that this feature has been removed. Microsoft has instead built the ability to backup settings straight into the Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Unfortunately, that leaves us with one big problem: What about the huge population of Windows XP users? Well, my friends, according to Microsoft, you are simply out of luck!!
Fortunately, there are a number of 3rd party developers that have sprung up with solutions to this issue. If you’re looking at migrating your home or office from Windows XP to Windows 7, then email or call The RetroTechs at 404 352-6210. We can guide through migrating your Office settings and assist you with the many other squirrelly little problems that come with changing operating systems.
