Excel 2007 Ribbon - Discover the New Ribbon Elements in Excel 2007!
Yes, Excel 2007's user interface is based on the ribbon, which is a bar across the top of the window that contains tabbed pages of commands and icons/buttons.
With the Ribbon, it shows you all the most commonly used options needed to perform a particular Excel task and you just click on it to take action.
- Ribbon: The whole bar, including all of the tabs.
- Office Button: On the far left side of the Ribbon, the Office Button lets you perform tasks that are common across many Office applications.
- Quick Access Toolbar: Located on top of the Excel screen beside the Office Button.
- Tab: Excel's main tasks are brought together and display all the commands commonly needed. Clicking a tab name once activates the tab.
- Group: A section of a tab that organizes related command buttons into subtasks. For example, the Home tab has the following groups: Clipboard, Font, Alignment, Number, Styles, Cells, and Editing.
- Dialog box launcher: A small icon in the bottom-right corner of a group, from which you can open a dialog box related to that group.
