Customizing the Word 2010 Ribbon
Although user reactions to the Ribbon were mixed after the launch of Word 2007, the
Ribbon does a great job of organizing tools and groups as long as you can tweak it to work

Word Options dialog box.
In the Customize The Ribbon column on the right, click New Tab. A new tab and new
tab group is added to the diagram on the right.
