Tweaked for touchscreens

In terms of its overall appearance, Office 2013 RT looks nearly identical to the x86/x64 version. The big difference is that the user interface of Office 2013 RT has been adjusted to better accommodate for touchscreen use: menu items and other UI elements including the Ribbon are sized larger and laid out with more spacing among them. (This “touch mode” is a feature that’s also available on the x86/x64 version of Office 2013, which can be switched on to help you use the office suite more effectively should you be running it on a touchscreen device.)
