The View Shortcuts, Zoom Slider, and Zoom Level controls are displayed at the right
end of the status bar. The View Shortcuts toolbar includes buttons for the two
primary program content views. The Zoom Slider and Zoom Level controls enable you
to adjust the magnification of the Reading Pane.
SEE ALSO For information about the various ways you can view program window and
item content, see Chapter 2, “Explore Outlook 2013.” We discuss the module-specific
views in Chapter 4, “Store and access contact information,” Chapter 5, “Manage
scheduling,” Chapter 6, “Track tasks,” and Chapter 7, “Organize your Inbox.”
Working with the ribbon
You might be familiar with the ribbon command structure from other Office programs.
Outlook differs from those in one respect—it has one ribbon for the program window, and
a separate ribbon for each item window. As a result, each Outlook ribbon is simpler and
contains fewer tabs than the ribbons in other programs.
The program window and each of the Outlook item windows have individually conigurable
ribbons that display content specific to the program or to the item type you’re working
with. All the ribbons share common structural features.
The Home tab of each ribbon displays the most frequently used commands.
TIP Your ribbons might look different from those shown in this topic. You might have
installed programs that add their own tabs to the ribbon, or your screen settings might
be different. For more information, see “Ribbon appearance” later in this section.
▪ Across the top of the ribbon is a set of tabs. Clicking a tab displays an associated set
of commands. The Home tab of each ribbon contains the most commonly used
commands for the related item.
▪ On each tab, buttons representing commands are organized into named groups. The
groups that appear on each tab, and the buttons that appear in each group, vary
based on the active module or item.
