The most notable change in Microsoft Word's upgrade from Word2007 to Word2010 is the use of the file button instead of the Office buttons in Word2007, making it easier for users to move from older versions such as Word2003 and Word2000. In addition, Word2010 also canceled the traditional menu operation mode, and substituting for various functional areas. The name that looks like a menu above the Word2010 window is actually the name of the Ribbon, and when you click the names, you don't open the menu, but instead switch to the ribbon panel that corresponds to it. Each ribbon is divided into groups based on functionality, and each ribbon has features that are described in the following areas:
1. The start Ribbon "START" Ribbon includes the Clipboard, font, paragraph, style, and edit five groups, corresponding to the Word2003 edit and paragraph menu parts commands. This ribbon is primarily used to help users edit and format Word2010 documents, which is the most common feature area for users, as shown in Figure 1.
