3. Click New Group. A new group is added to that tab, with the name New Group
(Custom).
All custom groups have the same name by default; PowerPoint does not number
them or give them sequential names.
4. (Optional) Rename the group:
a. Click Rename.
b. Type a new name for the group.
c. Click an icon for the group. (This icon will appear if the group is collapsed
because of inadequate window width to display it.) See Figure 22.8.
d. Click OK.
5. Click OK to close the dialog box, or leave it open for more editing.

Adding or Removing Commands
You can’t remove the standard commands on any of the built-in tabs; only the groups and
commands you have placed yourself can be modifi ed.
Before you add a command to the Ribbon, consider whether it might be better to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar
instead (covered later in this chapter). The Quick Access Toolbar is always available, regardless of which tab is dis-
played. This can save you a step in executing the command because you never have to change tabs to get to it.
Adding a Command
To add a command, follow these steps:
1. Select the custom group to which you want to add the command. (Remember,
you can’t add commands to built-in groups.)
2. On the list at the left, select the command to add.
You may wish to narrow down the list of commands by making a selection from the
drop-down list fi rst. For example, you could choose Commands Not on the Ribbon to
exclude commands that are already on other tabs.
3. Click the Add button. The command appears under the group name on the left side
of the window.
4. Click OK to close the dialog box, or leave it open for more editing.
Removing a Command
To remove a command, follow these steps:
1. Right-click the command you want to remove.
2. Click Remove.
Alternately, you can click the Remove button to the left of the tabs list.
