How to Add the Developer tab to the Excel Ribbon

A common question that comes up is where to find the Developer tab in Excel 2010 or Excel 2013.  As standard the Developer tab is not on the Excel Ribbon but this tab opens up your options to use VBA and Macros along with Inserting Control Box tools like Scroll Bars and Buttons to your Excel files, for many Excel analysts this is a must to add!

Step One:  Open Excel and Click on File in the top left corner of the Workbook.
