Microsoft Office 2016 Upgrade

Our office just updated from Office 2010 to 2016 (and Windows 10 as well) and it's turning out to be a sh*tshow so far. Have any of you gone through the upgrade and care to share some tips / shortcuts for powerpoint and excel?

For example I can't tab through the formatting pane in the new powerpoint, the Alt + Underlined letter no longer brings you to that option in the menu (currently defaults to the ribbon, or nothing happens at all), can't seem to exit out of the formatting pane without clicking out.

Any advice for office would be greatly appreciated, or if you have any other tips that you found in the new windows / office I'm all ears.
