Getting to know Excel
If you’ve previously used Excel 2010 or Excel 2013, then Excel 2016 should feel familiar. If you are new to Excel or have more experience with older versions, you should first take some time to become familiar with the Excel interface.
The Excel interface
When you open Excel 2016 for the first time, the Excel Start Screen will appear. From here, you’ll be able to create a new workbook, choose a template, and access your recently edited workbooks.
- From the Excel Start Screen, locate and select Blank workbook to access the Excel interface.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become familiar with the Excel interface.
Working with the Excel environment
The Ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar are where you will find the commands to perform common tasks in Excel. The Backstage view gives you various options for saving, opening a file, printing, and sharing your document.
Excel 2016 uses a tabbed Ribbon system instead of traditional menus. The Ribboncontains multiple tabs, each with several groups of commands. You will use these tabs to perform the most common tasks in Excel.
- Each tab will have one or more groups.
- Some groups will have an arrow you can click for more options.
- Click a tab to see more commands.
- You can adjust how the Ribbon is displayed with the Ribbon Display Options.
Certain programs, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, may install additional tabs to the Ribbon. These tabs are called add-ins.
