Rolling Through the Ribbon Tabs
With Excel as the active application, move the mouse anywhere over the rib-
bon and roll the scroll wheel on top of the mouse. Excel quickly flips from
ribbon tab to ribbon tab. Scroll away from you to roll toward the Home tab
on the left. Scroll toward you to move to the right.

The ribbon holds perhaps 20% of the available commands. The set of com-
mands and options available in the ribbon will be enough 80% of the time, but
you will sometimes have to go beyond the commands in the ribbon. You can do
this with dialog launchers, More commands, and the task pane.
A dialoglauncheris a special symbol in the lower-right corner of many rib-
bon groups. Click the dialog launcher to open a related dialog with many more
choices than those offered in the ribbon.
Figure 3.5 shows details of the Number group of the Home tab. In the lower-
right corner is the dialog launcher. It looks like the top-left corner of a
dialog, with an arrow pointing downward and to the right.

When you click the dialog launcher, you go to a dialog box that often offers
many more choices than those available in the ribbon. In Figure 3.6 , you see
the Number tab of the Format Cells dialog.
