Are you a Microsoft Word user? Well, here are few tips to make using Microsoft Word easier and more productive. First of all let us talk about the new ribbon. What used to be the menus and toolbars in older versions of Microsoft Office is now called the ribbon. This is a new feature of the Microsoft Office fluent user interface. The idea behind the Ribbon design is for helping the user to find the commands they need to complete their word processing tasks quickly. The commands are now organized in logical groups and stored together under tabs. Each individual tab represents a particular activity such as laying out a page or inserting objects, charts, images into a page. In an effort to reduce the clutter the tabs are shown only when they are needed. An example of this is the Picture Tools tab is only shown when a picture is selected.
