Office Ribbon

Office Ribbon

The user interface in Microsoft Office applications introduced with Office 2007. Except for the File menu, the Ribbon replaced all the traditional menus with tabbed toolbars and buttons.


Menus Became Toolbars
Except for the File menu (red arrow), the Ribbon puts functions together in toolbars accessed by tabs. The Home tab is selected in this example with some of the detail of the toolbar at the top. For comparison, the previous Office interface is shown at the bottom.

One minor change to the navigation is the addition of a new Design tab that pulls out the themes and style sets that were previously on the Page Layout tab. Microsoft seems to be pushing the very useful navigation pane that it introduced in previous versions, now adding a thumbnail view of your entire page.
In Excel 2007,Microsoft replaced the Page Setup dialog with a dizzying array of icons on the Page Layout tab of the ribbon, but you can get back to the original Page Setup dialog by clicking the tiny Dialog Launcher icon in the lower-right corner of the Page Setup group (see the mouse pointer in Figure 1).
