How To Enable Or Show Developer Tab In Microsoft Office 2007 Ribbon Interface?

If you’re going to embed SWF game or working with macro in Microsoft Office 2007, you need to access the functions grouped under Developer Tab in its Ribbon interface.

However, you might not see this Developer Tab right away, unless the option to display it in Ribbon menu interface is turned on.

Access the Developer Tab in Office 2007 Ribbon menu interface.

I am not sure that option is set to on or off during the Office 2007 default installation, and I wonder why there should be an option to choose whether the Developer Tab should or shouldn’t appears in the Ribbon bar. Do you know any of the reasons?

So, if you find out the Developer tab is not in the Ribbon menu interface, most likely the option to show it is turned off (if this is not reduced function as a result of non-genuine or non-premium Microsoft Office product :-)

Office 2007 Options that turn on of off the Developer tab in Ribbon menu

Option to turn on and off the Developer Tab on Office 2007 Ribbon menu interface.

1) Click the Microsoft Office Button (the “Start” button of Office 2007; appears on the upper-left corner), and click the Excel Options button (because I am using Excel 2007 as example of this guide).

Alternatively, press the keyboard shortcut (hotkey) sequence to open the Office 2007 Options window: ALT+F followed by I.

2) In the Excel Options window, click the Popular option on left pane.

3) On the right pane of Popular option, look at the first section – “Popular options for working with Excel”. Locate and tick the check-box of “Show Developer Tab in the Ribbon” (as shown in the above screenshot).
