Word 2013 provides users with several pre-installed templates which can be used to create new documents including blank documents, family calendar and blog posts. The menu interface of Word 2013 (and other Office apps) are similar to those of Office 2010. However, in Office 2013 you will find a more metrofied version of the menu.

Overall Office 2013 does not look like a major refresh from the Office 2010 interface except for the heavy use of Metro UI. However, there are several new and interesting features in Office 2013 which make it a solid upgrade. You can read about all the features in Office 2013 in our post: Office 2013 features and updates. You can also Download Office 2013 Consumer Preview right now.
