The Ribbon

Instead of standard menus, Excel 2016 uses a tabbed Ribbon scheme. The Ribbon includes several tabs, each of which has several command classes. To do the most common tasks in Excel, you will apply these tabs.

  • Each tab will consist one or more groups.
  • In certain groups there will be an arrow you can press for more options.
  • To see more commands, click a tab.
  • With the Ribbon Display Options you can adjust how the Ribbon is displayed.

Some applications, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, can install additional Ribbon tabs. They are called add-ins for these tabs.
