The Ribbon was introduced in Office 2007 and is everywhere in Office 2010. Here’s an easy (hidden) way to move around the ribbon using the scroll wheel of your mouse.
- Move your mouse up to the Ribbon.
- Now scroll using the wheel on your mouse.
You should see that you will move between the different tabs.
I find this a much nicer way of moving between tabs on the Ribbon… I don’t need to move the mouse around and it stops me from accidentally clicking on the wrong icon too.
