Word 2007/2010/2013: Enabling the Word Developer Tab on the ribbon (via: Andrew Coates ::: MSFT – Site Home – MSDN Blogs)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/01/16

This is one of the things I tend to forget, as you do it once per machine, and the place to do it is not logical to me.

I mainly use it to quickly record a Macro (boy, I wish Office had a TemporaryMacro feature like Visual Studio had. Alas no more: Macro Recording/Playback has been removed in Visual Studio 2012).

The logical place for me would be to have a context-menu on the ribbon where you can enable the Developer tab.

Anyway, this is how to enable the Developer tab in Word 2007/2010/2013:

Enabling the Word 2007 Developer Tab

One of the things that took me the longest to do when I was prepping for my OzFox Session was also one of the simplest – enabling the Developer tab in the Word 2007 ribbon.

The Developer tab […] allows you to do things that a Word developer might need to do, including adding content controls.

By default though, its not enabled.

To switch it on,

  1. choose Word Options from the Word Menu
  2. Make sure you’ve got the Popular group highlighted,
  3. and check the box that says “Show Developer Tab in the Ribbon”.
