3. Using the Excel Interface
The Excel interface has had a major makeover over the last decade. Excel
2007 introduced the ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar to replace the familiar
command bar at the top of Excel. Excel 2010 brought the expanded File menu. Ex-
cel 2013 brings the Start menu, plus new Open and Save As panes. These were
discussed in Chapter 1 , Staying Connected Using Excel 2013 . This chapter
reviews all of the remaining Excel interface elements.
Using the Ribbon
The ribbon is composed of seven permanent tabs labeled Home, Insert, Page
Layout, Formulas, Data, Review, and View. Other permanent tabs appear if you
install certain add-ins. For example, PowerPivot, Inquire, and Easy-XL are
tabs that you see if you install certain add-ins. Other contextual ribbon
tabs appear when you select a certain type of object, such as a chart, image,
or pivot table.
Each tab is broken into rectangular groups of related commands. The group
shown in Figure 3.1 is the Clipboard group on the Home tab.
