arrow blue right bubbleWhy should we use the Ribbon Finder?

Let me tell you my story, and you will find out the why exactly. One day, I had to resend an e-mail in Outlook 2010. I spent almost half an hour to learn how to get it done. It’s simple, if you know the How-To. I asked my colleague, but he told me that he couldn't figure it out even after browsing through all the tabs and commands in Outlook 2010! After a few more futile attempts, I finally looked for a solution on the Internet. Thanks to Google, I found the answer. But it’s really really time-consuming!

Could you imagine that you need to spend lots of time to search command in Microsoft Office 2007 / 2010 applicaitons?

arrow blue right bubbleTo know more about how the Ribbon Finder works with Microsoft Office 2007 / 2010 applications:

① Type or enter your keywords in the search box, just as you would enter them in the Google search bar. For example, I am going to search for “Insert” in Microsoft Word 2010.


(Fig. 1)

② Once you click the search button, the most relevant Office commands are displayed on the first page. You can also click the “Next” button to browse more commands. The search results show commands that are relevant to the keyword you entered. As the image shows, searching for “Insert” has yielded 65 relevant results, which are distributed over 8 pages (See Fig. 2). This message is really useful, if you are unable to find the commands you need on the first two pages. You could also alter your keywords or enter more keywords in the search box to refine your search. For example, if you want to know how to insert a picture in Word 2010, just enter “Insert picture” in the search box, and the search results will feature the correct commands (See Fig. 3).
