In Depth Information
Some commands on the Ribbon display an
image to help you remember their function. When
you point to a command on the Ribbon, all or part of
the command glows in shades of yellow and orange,
and an Enhanced ScreenTip appears on the screen. An
Enhanced ScreenTip is an on-screen note that
provides the name of the command,
available keyboard shortcut(s), a
description of the command, and sometimes
instructions for how to obtain help
about the command (Figure 1–8). Enhanced ScreenTips
are more detailed than a typical ScreenTip, which
usually only displays the name of the command.

The lower-right corner of some groups on the Ribbon has a small arrow, called
a Dialog Box Launcher , that when clicked, displays a dialog box or a task pane with
additional options for the group (Figure 1–9). When presented with a dialog box, you
make selections and must close the dialog box before returning to the document. A task
pane , by contrast, is a window that can remain open and visible while you work in the

Mini Toolbar and Shortcut Menus
The Mini toolbar , which appears automatically based on tasks you perform,
contains commands related to changing the appearance of text in a document. All
commands on the Mini toolbar also exist on the Ribbon. The purpose of the Mini toolbar
is to minimize mouse movement. For example, if you want to use a command that
currently is not displayed on the active tab, you can use the command on the Mini
toolbar — instead of switching to a different tab to use the command.
