Introducing Backstage view
Introducing Backstage view
At first, when you begin working with one of the “ribbon versions” of Excel (starting with
Excel 2007), it looks like the old menus are still there across the top of the screen—until
you start clicking and you see that no menus are dropping down. Even more interesting
if you have been using Excel 2007 is that the File menu, which had been removed, came
back in Excel 2010 (and remains in 2013) as a tab, and the Office Button, which was where
the File menu used to be, is gone. Now, when you click the File tab, what you see is not so
much a menu or a dialog box, but a screen full of information and options that Microsoft
calls Backstage view . Here you can find the familiar File menu commands, and Backstage
view also serves as the access point for most of Excel’s “behind-the-scenes” commands and
settings.
Clicking the File tab on the ribbon reveals the default Info screen in Backstage view, as
shown in Figure 2-18.
Figure 2-18 Click the File tab to open Backstage view, which includes the old File menu
commands; click the arrow button in the upper-left corner to return to the worksheet.
As you can see, many of the old File menu commands are still here as clickable items on the
left side of the screen, and the right side of the screen provides additional clickable items.
Clicking Info, New, Open, Save As, Print, Share, Export, or Account controls the content
