can click on a command in the left column and click the Add button to
place commands on a new tab of your own design.
7. (Optional) Click the Restore Defaults button.

Customizing the Ribbon can make your copy of Office 2010 work exactly the
way you want. However, if other people need to use your copy of Office 2010
or if you need to use someone else’s copy of Office 2010, you may find that
using different Ribbon interfaces can get confusing.
