Using the Microsoft Office 2007 Ribbon, Tabs and Groups A new feature of Microsoft Office 2007 is the

Ribbon. The Ribbon is located at the top of your screen and replaces some of the drop down menus used in previous versions of Microsoft Office. The Ribbon will help you locate the buttons (or commands) which can be used to perform various tasks. The buttons are organized under tabs on the Ribbon and clustered in related groups. Many of your basic commands such as opening a new document, saving and printing are located by clicking the Office Button in the upper left corner of your screen. The sample ribbon below will help acquaint you with these new features in Office.
