Hi Cory,

You can customize the ribbon under File > Options > Customize Ribbon. There, you can create new Ribbons, new Chunks for existing Ribbons, etc.

Hope that helps,
Dan [MS]

    This is, to be honest, extremely limited, with no editing at all allowed on the majority of ribbon tabs. I can remove virtually nothing that I want to hide, which makes it much harder to find the stuff I actually use.

    What are chunks? I don't see anything about chunks for the ribbon.
