4 INTRODUCTION Microsoft Office system took on the challenge of making the core Microsoft Office applications easier to work with. The result of these efforts is the Microsoft Office Fluent User Interface (UI) a user interface that makes it easier for people to get more out of Microsoft Office applications so that they can deliver better results faster. 4

5 KEY FEATURES Design goals and approach In previous releases of Microsoft Office applications, people used a system of menus, toolbars, task panes, and dialog boxes to get their work done. Now that the programs do so much more, the menus and toolbars system does not work as well. Too many program features are too hard for many users to find. For this reason, the overriding design goal for the Office Fluent UI is to make it easier for people to find and use the full range of features these applications provide. With these goals in mind, Microsoft developed a results-oriented approach that makes it much easier to produce great results using the 2007 Microsoft Office applications. This approach covered in this booklet includes new concepts such as Buttons, Ribbon (Groups & Commands), Mini Toolbar, Contextual Tabs, Galleries and Live Preview. 5

6 KEY FEATURES Microsoft Office Button The Office Fluent user interface brings together the capabilities of the Microsoft Office system into a single entry point in the UI: the Microsoft Office Button.

9 KEY FEATURES What's on the Ribbon? The three parts of the Ribbon are tabs, groups, and commands. There are three basic components to the Ribbon. It's good to know what each one is called so that you understand how to use it. Tabs. There are seven basic ones across the top. Each represents an activity area Groups. Each tab has several groups that show related items together. Commands. A command is a button, a box to enter information, or a menu. Everything on a tab has been carefully selected according to user activities. For example, the Home tab contains all the things you use most often, such as the commands in the Font group for changing text font: Font, Font Size, Bold, Italic, and so on. 9

10 KEY FEATURES IN EXCEL 2007 The Ribbon - Excel Tabs In the Office Fluent UI the traditional menus and toolbars have been replaced by the Ribbon a component of the UI designed for easy browsing that presents commands organized into a set of: 1- Home 2 Insert 3 Page Layout 4 Formulas 5 Data 6 Review 7 - View 10
