Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

November 13, 2019

Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

All Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint 365 for Windows may have any number of buttons that represent commands but they are not scattered all over the tab area. In fact, they are all neatly arranged together in Groups. Each of these Groups has a name that describes what the commands within that Group do. For example, the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon has a group named Set Up, which contains all commands that help you set up your slide show, such as changing show settings, hiding slides, rehearsing and recording slide shows, etc. It is only sensible to imagine that you should use this Group concept while creating your own custom Ribbon tabs.

The information they share is received with ease by guests or visitors upon arrival. Digital signage is an electronic display that shows menus, information, advertising and other forms of messages.

The software—and its usage—have developed a negative reputation, ranging from the common epithet, “Death by PowerPoint,” to the pointed opinions of Edward Tufte, the well-known graphics guru and author of The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint in which he contends that “PowerPoint routinely disrupts and trivializes content.”
