Chapter 1. Getting Started with Microsoft Office 2013
Although Microsoft Office 2013 is intuitive and easy to use, it’s worth spending several
minutes exploring its interface and navigation tools. The most common of these include the
Ribbon, Backstage view, the Quick Access toolbar, the mini toolbar, contextual tabs, and
task panes.
If you’re upgrading from Office 2007 or 2010, the basic Office interface should be reas-
onably familiar. There are enhancements to the Ribbon and Backstage view, but these key
features still work in much the same way. If you’re upgrading from a previous Office ver-
sion, however, take your time exploring the new ways to use and navigate Office.
The first thing you’ll notice when you start most Office 2013 applications is the new start
screen that welcomes you. This screen is color-coded: blue for Word, green for Excel, and
red for PowerPoint. Outlook and OneNote, however, open directly to the Home tab, by-
passing the start screen.
For now, let’s start with a quick tour of Microsoft Office 2013.
