Office 2007: The Ribbon

Good day, friends! Today’s tip is about Microsoft Office 2007 products. If you’ve spent any time with each application, you’ve seen the “Ribbon,” as they call it. It’s the area under the tabs. These examples are from Word and PowerPoint (in that order):

Let’s just look at Word, for now. This ribbon view is for the “Home” tab. It’s divided into “Groups:” Clipboard, Font, Paragraph, Styles, and Editing. If you look closely, each group has an arrow in the bottom right corner. When you click on them, a dialog box pops up. In most cases, the boxes are quite similar to boxes we’re used to seeing in the older versions of Word. Let’s take look at the “Paragraph” tab, for example. When I click on that arrow, this is the box I get:

Looks familiar, doesn’t it? When your Ribbon doesn’t have the function you are trying to perform, start exploring the dialog boxes.

If you would like more “hands-on,” practical help, write me.  On the “About Cyber Savvy Services” tab, you can fill out a form to communicate what type of help you need. Even if you live too far for me to physically travel to you, I can help you over the internet!

And remember – comment AND subscribe!
