How to make the Developer tab visible in Word and Access 2010?

Chris wrote to us, asking:

I am looking for the developer tab in Word 2010. I was able to use it in my Office computer, but not on my home PC. How do I get this option?

Thanks for the question, Chris. The Developer tab is not visible in Office 2010 applications by default. But, you can easily enable it by following the steps below.

Word Options

  • Open Word or any Application in the Office 2010 suite.
  • Hit the coloured ‘File’ button at the top left.
  • Choose ‘Options’ at the left side of the screen. You should now see the Word Options dialog box.
  • Get into the Customize Ribbon tab and check ‘Developer’  under ‘Customize the Ribbon’.

The procedure is pretty much the same in all Office 2010 apps, so it will apply to Access, Excel and Powerpoint as well.
