Customize the Ribbon
You can improve your Excel productivity by
customizing the Ribbon with extra commands
that you use frequently.
Keep in mind that you cannot modify any of
the default tabs and groups in Excel, other
than hiding tabs you do not use. Instead, you
customize the Ribbon by adding a new group
to an existing tab, and then adding one or
more commands to the new group.
Alternatively, you can add a new tab to the
Ribbon, add your own groups to that tab, and
then add your commands.
