View Thread: Quantitative analysis of Office Ribbon UI productivity and Windows 8 predictions

    @androidi:I just press the "Print" hotkey on my keyboard and have done for years, before then I think I tended to go File->Print rather than the toolbar because it required less mental effort to find (even if it took more clicks).

    It's easy to forget that the ribbon layout is (and should be in all apps that use it) based on extensive metrics and studies of what people actually do, rather than speculative ideas about what people should do because it takes less clicks or whatever.
