The usual process of opening applications is to click on the application shortcut and wait while the application is fully loaded, in many cases the application will take sometime to load, specially when they have to load add-ins or plugins too.
Likewise Microsoft Office products take sometime to open, usually because they are loading add-ins in the background.
Office 2010 includes a change on how the application loads which provides users with an option to close the applications even before they are fully loaded with the inclusion of a close and cancel button.
In addition to that users are also able to see what process is currently being run by the application, for example if you have a lot of add-ins you will see the progress of which add-ins are currently being loaded.
The good thing about these changes is that it now allows users to determine which add-ins may be causing problem and disable or uninstall them.
