Office 2010 Screen Saver Shares Tips and Tricks

Earlier this week Microsoft posted a screen saver that provides you tips and tricks to use Office 2010 more effectively.

The Office 2010 Screensaver Download is posted at the Microsoft Download Center and is a 70MB file.  Installation will make it your default screen saver.

It works like any other screen saver and has some basic options settings which have to do with the Desktop Notification, otherwise known as a Toast, and its appearance on your desktop.

What happens is that when you disrupt the screen saver by hitting a key or moving your mouse the last tip that was being displayed by the screen saver will appear in the lower right hand corner of your desktop like this:

That link is active and will take you directly to the Office 2010 website with more information about the tip.
