Examining the Ribbon in Windows 8’s Windows Explorer


In this gallery, I’ll present you with a series of images designed to compliment my article series covering the new Ribbon interface in Windows 8's Windows Explorer: Break down Ribbon Core tabs in Windows 8's Windows Explorer and Get what you need when you need it with contextual tabs in Windows 8 Explorer.

While I’ll show each one of the tabs that I have uncovered in Windows 8's Windows Explorer Ribbon, I’ll only highlight the commands that display secondary user interface items such as submenus or dialog boxes. As always, if you have comments or information to share about this topic, please take a moment to drop by the TechRepublic Community Forums and let us hear from you.

Note: Keep in mind that since this is such an early release of Windows 8, some of the features that I'll describe in this article may change between now and the time that the operating system is actually released.
