Navigate the Program Windows
All Office programs share a common appearance and many of the same features, and when you
learn your way around one Office program, you can easily use the same skills to navigate the
others. These common features include scroll bars, a Ribbon, and a Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). The
Ribbon contains commands that Microsoft Office determines that users use most often, and the QAT
contains frequently used commands; you can customize both of these elements.
Take a moment to familiarize yourself with each program’s various on-screen elements so that you
can learn to work quickly and efficiently while you create documents.
A Title Bar
Displays the name of the
open file and the Office
program.
B Quick Access
Toolbar
Displays quick access
buttons to the Save,
Undo, and Redo
commands.
C Ribbon
Displays groups of related
commands in tabs. Each
tab offers buttons for
performing common tasks.
D Program Window
Controls
These buttons enable you
to view the program in a full
screen, with only scroll bars but
no other controls. They also allow
you to minimize the program

the window including program

In link. See Chapter 4 for details.
