Ribbon Office Logo Button Quick Access Toolbar Tabs Contextual Tabs Groups Dialog Box Launchers Commands Keyboard Shortcuts Mini Toolbar 3
The Ribbon is an interface where a set of toolbars are placed on tabs in a tab bar. The Ribbon can be collapsed but cannot be moved from the top to the side of the page Tabs Groups Office Logo Button Quick Access Toolbar 4
Commands are organized by how they’re used. Frequently used core commands no longer have to share space with a range of remotely related commands on a menu or toolbar. They’re the ones that get used, and so now they’re the ones most prominently featured.
How do you get started? In Word 2007, for example, that’s the Home tab. It’s got the commands that people use most commonly when they write documents: font formatting commands (Font group), paragraph options (Paragraph group), and text styles (Styles group). Begin with the first tab.
The three parts of the Ribbon are tabs, groups, and commands. Tabs sit across the top of the Ribbon. Each one represents core tasks you do in a given program. Groups are sets of related commands. They remain on display and readily available, giving you rich visual aids. Commands are arranged in groups. A command can be a button, a menu, or a box where you enter information.
The Office button replaces the File menu. From this button you will Save, Save As, Print, Email etc Note: Clicking twice on the Office button closes the application. You will customise your application from the Office button. 8
The Quick Access Toolbar is the small area to the upper left of the Ribbon. It contains the things that you use over and over every day: Save, Undo,... You can add items to the toolbar via the office button and selecting options, customize. 10
Customizing the quick access toolbar
Do you often use commands that aren’t as quickly available as you’d like? You can easily add them to the Quick Access Toolbar. Located above the Ribbon when you first start your Microsoft Office program, the Quick Access Toolbar puts commands where they’re always visible and near at hand.

The tabs on the Ribbon display the commands that are most relevant for each of the task areas in the applications Shown below is an example of a Office application insert group, on the tab are items you would insert into the application you are working on. 16
Groups are logical divisions of the tab bar, grouping font functions together in one place saving you time looking for functionality. 17
Short Cut Keys – Most of the shortcut keys you are used to still work. Office 2007 additionally uses the ALT key. This displays the letter to access the action you require. 18
19 Commands you use most are available on the Ribbon all the time. Others appear only when you need them, in response to an action you take. For example, the Picture Tools in Word appear on the Ribbon when you insert a picture, and they go away when you’re done. The Ribbon responds to your action. So don’t worry if you don’t see all the commands at all times. Take the first steps, and what you need will appear.
Honourable exception Outlook retains menus
Outlook Menu to Ribbon
Dialog Boxes are available for many group items. An example in Excel would be CTRL SHIFT F this launches the Format Cells Or click the icon circled to expand dialog boxes 22
Sometimes an arrow, called the Dialog Box Launcher, appears in the lower-right corner of a group. This means more options are available for the group. On the Home tab, click the arrow in the Font group. For example, to get to a less commonly used font option in PowerPoint ® 2007: The Font dialog box opens, with the full selection of font commands.
The Mini toolbar will appear in a faded fashion. If you point to the Mini toolbar, it will become solid, and you can then click a formatting option. 24
in Office 2007 you can customize what information you want to see in the status bar from a predefined list. In Word, Excel, PowerPoint (not Outlook) you can right click on the status bar at the bottom of the window. You will receive a menu like the one Right. You can turn the Status bar on and off by choosing View | Status Bar. 25
You can see how formatting options such as fonts and Quick Styles will look, before you commit to them, by using the Live Preview feature that is included in several programs in the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
