The Ribbon

The most outstanding feature of Word 2007 is the Ribbon, which replaces the menus and toolbars found in previous versions of Microsoft Word. The ribbon consists of three areas:

 Tabs – these are at the top of the ribbon, e.g. Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc.

Groups  each tab has its own set of groups – e.g. the Home tab contains the Clipboard, Font, and Paragraph, etc. Some groups also have a small button in the lower right-hand corner known as the Dialog Box Launcher from which further options are available. When a different tab is selected, the groups change accordingly.

Commands these are the buttons, boxes or menus relative to each group, e.g. the alignment, and bullets and numbering buttons are in the Paragraph group, while Find Replace is in the Editing group. (Note: resting the mouse pointer on command will display a tip describing the feature.)

The Office Button
