Use the Ribbon in PowerPoint 2007
The Ribbon provides access to the tools you need to start creating PowerPoint 2007 presentations and slides. The Ribbon replaces menus and toolbars used earlier Office programs.
Initially, the Ribbon displays seven tabs:
Home: Basic commands for creating and formatting slides
Insert: Commands for inserting objects on slides
Design: Commands for tweaking the slide layout
Animations: Commands for adding animation
Slide Show: Commands for presenting your slide show
Review: Commands for proofing and adding comments to your presentations
View: Commands for changing views
Additional tabs appear occasionally. For example, if you select a picture, a Picture Tools tab appears with commands for manipulating the picture.
