Add Developer Tab in Word 2013

Microsoft Office 2013 allows us to add a Developer Tab on the ribbon of an Office application for its use because it does not appear by default.

The Developer Tab contains several controls within the control group that we can use in my Word document. These controls are very useful, especially when you want to create a user entry form with an attractive look.

To add the Developer Tab in the Word 2013 use the following procedure.

Step 1

Open your Word document and click on the "File" tab.
