PC Tip of the Month

Office 2007 - Using the Ribbon

You can think of the Ribbon of tools and commands in the 2007 Microsoft Office system as your visual gallery to create professional and visually interesting documents.

In the 2007 Microsoft Office system, there are no dialog boxes for formatting text and images. The formatting tools that you are used to using still exist, but they are integrated into the Ribbon. You can use the new tabs to move across various sets of commands or Ribbons that make up the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.

Additionally, while you are working on a document, the Ribbon automatically presents you with the right formatting tools at the right time and place. It reveals a visual gallery to help you quickly and easily format documents. For example, if you want to change the positioning of a picture you have imported into a Microsoft Office Word document:
1. Double-click the image. A Picture Tools tab opens a gallery that displays options to choose from.
2. Select the Position option from the gallery on the Picture Tools tab to easily define where the photo will sit within the text.
