Ribbon The ribbon is located below the title bar. The commands you’ll use when working with a presentation are gathered together in this central location for efficiency.

Your ribbon might display additional tabs

TIP  The available ribbon tabs and the appearance of the commands on the ribbon might differ from what is shown in this book, based on the apps that are installed on your computer, the PowerPoint settings and window size, and the screen settings. For more information, see the sidebar “Adapt procedure steps” later in this chapter. Across the top of the ribbon is a set of tabs. Clicking a tab displays an associated set of commands arranged in groups. Commands related to managing PowerPoint and presentations (rather than presen- tation content) are gathered together in the Backstage view, which you display by clicking the File tab located at the left end of the ribbon. Commands available in the Backstage view are organized on named pages, which you display by clicking the page tabs in the colored left pane. You redisplay the presentation and the ribbon by clicking the Back arrow located above the page tabs.
