Starting and Using a Program
Some commands on the Ribbon display an image to help you remember
their function. When you point to a command on the Ribbon, all or part of the
command glows in shades of yellow and orange, and an Enhanced ScreenTip
appears on the screen. An Enhanced ScreenTip is an on-screen note that
provides the name of the command, available keyboard shortcut(s), a description
of the command, and sometimes instructions for how to obtain help about the
command (Figure 14). Enhanced ScreenTips are more detailed than a typical
ScreenTip, which usually displays only the name of the command.
Some groups on the Ribbon have a small arrow in the lower-right corner,
called a Dialog Box Launcher , that when clicked, displays a dialog box or a task
pane with additional options for the group (Figure 15). When presented with a
dialog box, you make selections and must close the dialog box before returning
to the document. A task pane , in contrast to a dialog box, is a window that can
remain open and visible while you work in the document.

Mini Toolbar The Mini
toolbar , which appears
automatically based on
tasks you perform, contains
commands related to
changing the appearance
of text in a document. All
commands on the Mini
toolbar also exist on the
Ribbon. The purpose of the
Mini toolbar is to minimize
mouse movement.
When the Mini
toolbar appears, it initially
is transparent (Figure 16a).
If you do not use the
transparent Mini toolbar, it
disappears from the screen.
To use the Mini toolbar,
move the mouse pointer into
the toolbar, which causes
the Mini toolbar to change
from a transparent to bright appearance (Figure 16b). If you right-click an item in the
document window, Word displays both the Mini toolbar and a shortcut menu, which is
discussed in a later section in this chapter.
