What happened to the toolbar and menus?

Glad you asked. One of the first things you'll see when you open Excel for the first time is that there is a row of tabs across the top instead of a toolbar and menus. The row of tabs is called "the ribbon," and all of your buttons and tools are there.

The Home tab has the most frequently used buttons and features: Clipboard buttons (like cut, copy, paste) and formatting options (like colors, alignment, and number formatting).

Make sure you check out the right side of the Home tab. That's where you can insert rows and columns, sum numbers, and sort.
