About the Ribbon
The ribbon area takes up the top portion of the Microsoft Project user interface. Here, you will find icons, tabs, and access to the backstage. The figure describes the ribbon in more detail.
To learn the ribbon, try the following:
- Click the File tab to access the backstage. You can press the ESC (or escape) key on your keyboard to return to the primary Microsoft Project user interface.
- Click on the various tabs to where icons are located. Note how icon groups show icons that perform similar actions.
- Locate a contextual tab, like the GANT CHART TOOLS FORMAT tab. These contextual tabs are only available on certain views.
Lesson notes are only available for subscribers.
