Dialogue Box Launcher

At first glance, you may not see a certain command from a previous version of Office. Look for a small diagonal arrow in the lower-right corner Button image of a group.

The arrow is called a Dialog Box Launcher. If you click it, you'll see more options related to that group. Those options will often appear in the form of a dialog box that you may recognize from a previous version of Word. Or they may appear in a familiar-looking task pane.

Speaking of previous versions, if you're wondering whether you can get the same look and feel of a previous version of Office, the simple answer is no. But after playing around with the Ribbon a little, you'll get used to where things are and will like how easy it makes getting your work done.
