Tip #1: The Ribbon & The Button

Microsoft Office 2007 introduced users to two new navigation features the “Ribbon” and the “Office Button.”

The Office Button
The file menu has been replaced by the Office Button, which can be found in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
Click the Office Button to see all the familiar commands from the file menu. Whenever you see an arrow to the right of a command it means that there are more options available.

Navigating the Ribbon
The Ribbon section of Microsoft Office 2007 is made up of a series of tabs that include commands, buttons, and galleries. Each tab contains a set of commands to use for the particular tab function. For example, the Home tab includes functions such as font type and paragraph settings.
