Then click the Move Up or Move Down button (the arrow buttons located on
the right side of the dialog box). Click these buttons as necessary until tabs
or groups are in the order that you see fit.
Be careful about moving groups by clicking the Move Up or Move Down
button. Clicking these buttons too many times can move a group to a
different tab on the Ribbon.
Adding, removing, and renaming tabs,
groups, and commands
In the Options dialog box (refer to Figure 1-1), display and select the tab,
group, or command you want to add, remove, or rename. Then proceed to
add, remove, or rename it. (Earlier in this chapter, “Displaying and
selecting tab, group, and command names” explains how to display items in the
Options dialog box.)
Adding items to the Ribbon
Follow these steps to add a tab, group, or command to the Ribbon:
1. On the left side of the Customize Ribbon category of the Options
dialog box, select the tab, group, or command you want to add.
For example, to add the Tables group to the Home tab, select the
Commands can be added only to custom groups. To add a command
to the Ribbon, create a new group for the command (see “Creating new
tabs and groups,” later in this chapter).
2. On the right side of the dialog box, select the tab or custom group
where you want to place the item.
If you’re adding a tab to the Ribbon, select a tab. The tab you add will go
after the tab you select.
3. Click the Add button.
Removing items from the Ribbon
Follow these steps to remove a tab, group, or command from the Ribbon:
1. On the right side of the Customize Ribbon category of the Options
dialog box, select the tab, group, or command you want to remove.
2. Click the Remove button.
Except for tabs you create yourself, you can’t remove tabs from the
Ribbon. And you can’t remove a command unless you remove it from a
group you created yourself.
