Excel Tips for Las Vegas
Microsoft Excel 2010 enables users to customize their ribbon. This is handy for arranging icons in a manner that maximizes your workflow. It also makes life a little easier.
To begin, simply scroll over any area in the ribbon. Right-click and select the option that says “customize ribbon.” This will take you to the customize screen where you can simply highlight icons and add them to a group in the column to the right. If you remove the check on any of the main tabs, the tab will also disappear from your ribbon.
Tabs are the main headings, and groups are the subdivisions that actually appear on the ribbon. Be aware of the pull-down menu on the top left side of the page, which shows all of the available icons in Excel. There are quite a lot of them, and they are worth exploring.
The quick access toolbar can be moved so that it is located either above or below the ribbon. The pull-down menu, which looks like a black arrow facing down with a single line above it, provides an list of items that can be checked or unchecked.
The quick print icon is very popular to have displayed on the quick toolbar because it does not appear anywhere else on the ribbon. Choosing the “more commands” option from the quick access toolbar will take you there. Anytime you need to have the items rearranged on your ribbon, make sure to remember your options.
