The Dynamic Ribbon

Fluent User Interface (or the Ribbon) - Review

  • So what will all this change mean to you?
  • No more hunting and pecking through menus, sub menus and dialog boxes.
  • The ribbon has organized all the commands you use the most, in a way that makes them more easily accessible from Tabs at the top of the screen.
  • It’s also consistent with the Microsoft® Office suite of Applications. This consistency and familiarity with other Microsoft® client applications will aid you as you move across the suit.
