Button Bar :- It is a set of multiple buttons joined into a separate control. In Button Bar every Button has a text label or icon or both.

Formula Bar :- When we use any formula in an excel spreadsheet then it is displayed in the formula bar. 

Sheet tab :-  When we open excel, we always see that excel automatically selects sheet 1 for us. If we want, we can rename, delete, move and change colour of the sheet by right clicking on it. We can also hide and protect the sheet.

Use shortcut key Alt+Shift+F1 to create a new sheet.

Name box :- It display the name of the currently selected cell. For example H6, A5, B3, etc. In H6, H is the column name an 6 is the row number.
