What Is a Ribbon?

As part of the Microsoft Office product family, SharePoint 2010 uses a design concept called a ribbon to display different menus and buttons, depending on what you are looking at. It is important to know how to use the ribbon so you can move around in a site and perform actions in it.

This book covers many different actions available in different ribbons. Part II, "Solutions for Authors and Content Managers," explains how to author content, and Part III, "Solutions for Site Managers," explains how to manage websites. Although these tasks use the ribbon heavily, it is also important for readers who do not need to author information to be familiar with the ribbon concept to avoid getting lost. As you will see in Chapter 2, "Finding Your Way Around a SharePoint Site," and Chapter 3, "Solutions Regarding Files, Documents, List Items, and Forms," you use the ribbon to perform many types of navigational actions on documents and list items.
