Commands are controls that enable you to accomplish specific tasks, such as bolding a word, adding a list, inserting a picture, or adding page numbers.
Inserting Symbols Using Commands
One useful command is inserting symbols, such as em dashes and the trademark symbols, into documents. To do so, select the Insert tab on the Ribbon and in the Insert group, select the Symbols drop-down list and select the symbol.
Word 2016 introduced the Tell Me feature on the Ribbon. The Ribbon now contains the text "Tell me what you want to do..."
If you click this text, it becomes a text box where you can enter text to search on to quickly perform actions. Just clicking the box pops up some possible ideas.
For example, "Leave a comment" brings up the option to insert a comment in the document.
