The File tab behaves differently than the other Ribbon tabs. Rather than seeing a set of commands on the Ribbon above your workbook, when you click the File tab, you're taken to an area that Microsoft calls "Backstage."

Instead of making changes within a workbook, Backstage lets you work with the workbook and with Excel overall. You'll find common tasks such as opening, saving, printing and sharing a workbook, as well as special screens for managing the workbook (the Info screen), your Office account (the Account screen), and how Excel behaves overall (the Options screen).
