Customising the Ribbon in Microsoft Office 2013

Customise the Ribbon

In Office 2013 you can tailor and personalise the ribbons so that they will appear exactly the way you want them. You can produce customised tabs and custom groups that will hold frequently used instructions.

The user can add a command to an existing group or create a new tab and add custom groups to their new tab. All custom tabs or groups will appear in the ‘Customise Ribbon’ section of the ‘Application Options’ with the new name and Custom in brackets – Example: Position (Custom)
