Outlook/Office Tip: Scroll the Ribbon using the Mouse Wheel

By standss Friday, May 7th, 2010

The Ribbon was introduced in Office 2007 and is everywhere in Office 2010. Here’s an easy (hidden) way to move around the ribbon using the scroll wheel of your mouse.

  1. Move your mouse up to the Ribbon.
  2. Now scroll using the wheel on your mouse.

You should see that you will move between the different tabs.

I find this a much nicer way of moving between tabs on the Ribbon… I don’t need to move the mouse around and it stops me from accidentally clicking on the wrong icon too.

  1. In fact, we could move around the ribbon using the scroll wheel in office 2007 but not in Office 2010, at least in the default configuration. Is there any way to use this feature in Office 2010?

    Thanks

  2. I do menial labor due to the recession and work seems to dumb me down. Thank you for posting such interesting posts so that I can muse over it and excercise my thinking.
