What the Excel MVPS Said.

What I belive is previous functionality in menus and toolbars and many task panes were consolidated into one area by implementing Ribbon UI having each tab for various related options grouped together to increase speed (e.g. Move the mouse scroll wheel while on any of the tabs on the ribbon cycles through the tabs which is not possible in menu), if you know where commands are in the ribbon. However, this concept has been around much longer as user of 1980-90 eras have seen in DOS (no graphics but plain text) applications such as Lotus 1-2-3. 

However many long-time and traditional users finds that commands are not more discoverable and accessible with fewer mouse clicks or keyboard strokes and especially power-users are upset with the lack of choice between "The Ribbon" and traditional menus in the new 2007 Office system. As the option to revert to classical file menu is not available and there is no expectation that Microsoft may make this a standard inbuilt feature  in near future, you may have to use an external addon to add this functionality.

With this addon you can use old menu i.e. Classic Menu in Excel 2007 alongwith some new features of 2007. Save the zip file to your folder and unzip. Run Setup to install the Exshail Classic Menu for Excel-2007.

Enjoy Excel-2007 & 2010.
