Search Commands for Office, the add-in that may help you migrate

Several months after Office 2010 RTMed, the Office Labs team has finally updated the killer Search Commands addin to work with Word, Excel and PowerPoint 2010. Alas, no such luck for rest of the Office 2010 apps which also need it desperately. Grab it here while it lasts.

Still, I don't understand why instead of putting so much effort into this addin so that users are not lost, Microsoft doesn't make the older more familiar menu interface optional in Office.

Update: There is a commercial product from called Ribbon Finder: It adds the ability to find any Ribbon command from any Office app! Must-buy.
