    I'm watching a video of a guy showing how to work with tables. On the screen I see "Table Tools" which shows up every time he clicks inside the table. For the life of me, I can't get Table Tools to appear.....Is it in Design? Layout? Home? I've tried everywhere......searched online and all of them just say it will appear when you click inside the table. Nope.......

    I have it whenever I create/insert a table. But that's 2013.
    If you go to File --->> Options --->>Customize Ribbon. There will be an option to reset any previous customization that were made to it. Just remember that it'll reset any and all customization made.

    Hi, yeah.....I was just exploring the customize ribbon under options.....it says it's there. At any rate, it's got the + by design and layout under table tools.....I find I can get where I need to be by clicking inside the table, then going to the "design" tab, which brings up the table tools on the ribbon.....so I can get there, it's just baffling why I don't automatically get the tab on the ribbon like everyone else...and I've checked out a couple of different how-to videos by experts. Curious.
