Personalizing the Ribbon
The Choose Commands From list above the left column allows you to control which items
are shown in the list beneath it. You can choose Popular Commands to show a filtered
list, show all commands, or restrict the display to commands that are not available on any
default tab. Use one of the tabs options (All Tabs, Main Tabs, Tool Tabs, and so on) if you
want to copy an existing tab or group.
The Customize The Ribbon list allows you to filter the choices shown in the column on the
right. You can choose All Tabs, Main Tabs, or Tool Tabs.
Here’s what you can and can’t do with the ribbon in all Office programs:
● You can change the left-to-right order in which default and custom tabs appear on
the ribbon. If you want to move PowerPoint’s Slide Show tab to the third position,
after Home and Insert but before Design, you can do that. To move a tab, select its
entry in the Tabs list and drag it up or down; alternatively, you can use the Move Up
and Move Down arrows on the right, or right-click and then click Move Up or Move
Down on the shortcut menu.
