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.
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
PPT 2010 Notice the File tab is in Deep
The Ribbon Command tabs are designed to be task-oriented: Home, Insert, Design, Animations, Slide Show, etc.
Within each tab break is a list of subtasks arranged into groups: Clipboard, Slides, Font, Paragraph, Drawing, etc. Click the little blue diamond arrow for more functions.
Additional menu commands are found when you click other tabs in the ribbon command section.
Click the little arrow at the bottom right of the group for other options.
When you open your PowerPoint program. Click on all the Ribbon tabs, etc. to see what kind of tasks are displayed.
