Getting to know Excel 2007

The Excel 2007 interface has been completely revamped and redesigned compared to the older versions of Excel we are all used to. In place of the old pull-down menus, so prominent in all earlier versions of the program, Excel 2007 now relies primarily on the Ribbon, a block of commands displayed at the top of the screen and divided into distinct blocks called tabs. All that is left of the old pull-down menus is the pull-down menu opened with the Office Button, which replicates most of the File commands. Also, in place of the many toolbars of previous Excel versions, Excel 2007 offers a single toolbar called the Quick Access toolbar.
