PowerPoint Ribbon Interface

There is a new look for Office PowerPoint 2007 / 2010. It is designed to help you be more productive, find commonly used functions, and to produce quality documents with a click of the mouse. The main different between the two versions is the use of the Office Button in 2007 and the removal of the Office Button in 2010. The latter version now has the File button or tab.

Ribbon Interface

The primary replacement for menus and toolbars in Office PowerPoint 2007 is the Ribbon. Designed for easy browsing, the Ribbon consists of tabs that are organized around specific scenarios or objects. The controls on each tab are further organized into several groups. The Ribbon can host richer content than menus and toolbars can, including buttons, galleries, and dialog box content.

Additional menu commands are found when you click other tabs in the ribbon command section.
