The Quick Access Toolbar is the one which I find most useful.

You can choose to show it above or below The Ribbon (I personally prefer it below). You can choose which commands to display. Lots of information and guidance here:
Customize the Quick Access Toolbar - Word - Office.com

Thanks to everyone!
David, I had looked under the File ribbon tab and missed the Help link.
Exactly what I wanted! Yup the Ubit add-in seems to work well too.

Like this one from IE.

There is this absolutely awesome free tool for personal use and really cheap for business. It creates the menu bars like office 2003.
UBit Schweiz: UBitMenu International Languages
OR UBitMenu - Klassisches Menu für Office 2007/2010
There is also a separate Outlook menu if needed, you have to purchase that.
If you want tabbed office documents try this free for personal use add on:
Office Tabs Free Download if you require a more powerful version there is a shareware version available.

Downloaded, installed and this looks really cool - THANKS !

I wish i knew about this when i started using Office 2007 and the ribbon.
It would have made the transition much easier for me...

Have you ever had any problems with MS updates because of this?
Never been any problem with either of them. I was so impressed with the UBit I bought it about 5 times even though it is free and put it on all our home PC's.
The file size is tiny and it makes office usable for me and my wife. Cost me all of $10
