The Insert Ribbon Tab of Microsoft Office Word 2007

The Insert Ribbon tab of Microsoft Office Word 2007 is equally important as that of the Home Ribbon tabas we are going to realize. It has useful commands that you can use to modify your data. It has the following groups:

Pages Group

Cover Page – Under the pages group, you will be able to insert or remove a cover page where you will add the title, author, date, and other information.

Blank Page – This option will help you to insert a new blank page at the cursor position. Click on where you want your blank page to appear and click on blank page command.

Page Break – This command creates a new page at the current position (you can also use the shortcut keys Ctrl + Enter). This is the best way to create another page rather than using the return (enter) key several times.
