Using the Ribbon
Although the tabs on the Ribbon differ from program to program, each program has
two tabs in common. The fi rst tab on the Ribbon, the File tab, opens Backstage view.
Backstage view provides access to fi le-level features, such as creating new fi les, opening
existing fi les, saving fi les, printing fi les, and closing fi les, as well as the most common
program options. The second tab in each program—called the Home tab—contains the
commands for the most frequently performed activities, including cutting and pasting,
changing fonts, and using editing tools. In addition, the Insert, Review, and View tabs
appear on the Ribbon in all Offi ce programs except Access, although the commands
they include might differ from program to program. Other tabs are program specifi c,
such as the Design tab in PowerPoint and the Datasheet Tools tab in Access.
