Choosing Commands

Word commands are organized in groups on the Ribbon, Quick Access Toolbar, and Mini-Toolbar. Commands are available as buttons or options on the Ribbon, or as menus on button or option arrows or the File tab. The Quick Access Toolbar and Mini-Toolbar (New!) display frequently used buttons that you may be already familiar with from previous versions of Word, while the File tab on the Ribbon displays file related menu commands; to exit the File tab, click the Back button (New!). In addition to the File tab, you can also open a shortcut menu with a group of related commands by right-clicking a program element.
