Search Commands tool from Office Labs:
Search Commands [This is a GREAT tool for those who already have some experience with the Ribbon and want to save time. I don't recommend it for those brand new to the Ribbon, because it may keep them from getting to know the Ribbon. For help getting users up-to-speed, start with the Interactive Command Reference Guides. Then, once you're comfortable with the Office 2007 environment, this tool can be a SUPERB timesaver.]
