Ribbons contain three basic components:
Tabs There are seven of them across the top. Each represents core tasks you do in Excel.
Groups Each tab has groups that show related items together.
Commands A command is a button, a box to enter information, or a menu.
The principal commands in Excel are
gathered on the first tab, the Home tab. The commands on this tab are those that Microsoft has identified as the most commonly used when people do basic tasks with worksheets.
Groups pull together all the commands you're likely to need for a particular type of task, and throughout the task they remain on display and readily available, instead of being hidden in menus. These vital commands are visible above your work space.
