The ribbon structure of commands in MS Office 2007 is liked by most for it provides you easy accessibility of most of the MS Office commands. But still there are lots of commands and features in MS Office products, which are not easy to search. I always had wished that there could have been a search feature, which would have searched the appropriate command for my requirement.

Now, at last, there is a MS Office addon, which does the job perfect for me.

Welcome to Search Command Addon, from It is just a 2.4 MB download, which is free. You can download it and install it on your system. This will add a Search Command menu item on the menu bar of your MS Word, MS Excel and MS Powerpoint. If you click it, a new ribbon is opened, which has a search box on the left side.

2You can type any of your query here. For instance, I was looking for the command on how to watermark an MS Word page. So, I typed a query "Watermark", and it was instantaneous to give me most of the buttons related to Watermark command on the ribbon.

This also has the capability to suggest you the appropriate command, if you are not knowing the exact name of the command / functionality you want to use.
