Where Is Ribbon in Modern SharePoint Site?

In Modern SharePoint, the ribbon is no longer available.

It feels like someone has cut our hands when we see ShortPoint without ribbons, doesn't it? Well, not to worry, you will get used to it! Meanwhile, allow us to help you get along with it. First of all, here are the things which would be missing from your modern SharePoint site;

  • Popularity trends

  • RSS Feed

  • Most Popular Items

  • Connect to Outlook

  • Connect to Office

  • Export to Excel

  • Open with Access

  • Form Web Parts

  • Edit Library

  • New Quick-Step

  • Declare Record

  • Send To

  • Follow

Note: For all of the above options, until Microsoft bring them back to Modern SharePoint, you will have to rely on Classic SharePoint experience to use it. 

Here are the alternatives to use the ribbon commands in your modern experience
