Using Toolbars/Ribbons WINDOWS 8



Many apps and more robust desktop applications typically

provide graphical tools that you can click to get things done. In

some programs, these are arranged on a toolbar; in Microsoft

programs such as WordPad, they are arranged on various tabs

on a ribbon. The ribbon includes a File tab that displays commands

for working with documents, such as Open, Save, and

most commonly used editing tools to format text. WordPad

also offers a View tab on which you can use tool buttons to

zoom in and out, display a ruler, and more.
