Creating a custom ribbon tab
You can add custom groups to existing tabs, but if you have limited screen real estate,
creating your own tabs might make more sense. To do so, first right-click the ribbon, click
Customize The Ribbon, and then click the New Tab button. This creates a new top-level
outline item provisionally titled New Tab (Custom). Select New Tab (Custom), and then click
the Rename button to display the dialog box shown in Figure 3-4. The new tab is inserted
below the selected tab in the outline.

give it a sensible moniker.
