Word 2007 Ribbon Interface

There is a new look for Office Word 2007. It is designed to help you be more productive, find commonly used functions, and to produce quality documents with a click of the mouse.

Ribbon Interface

The primary replacement for menus and toolbars in Office Word 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.

The Ribbon Command tabs are designed to be task-oriented: Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc.

Within each tab break is a list of subtasks arranged into groups: Clipboard, Font, Paragraph, Styles, etc. Click the little 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 Word program. Click on all the Ribbon tabs, etc. to see what kind of tasks are displayed.
