      I find duplicate groups of commands under tabs like Task in MSP Professional 2016. For example if I have to add a summary task, I find 2 Insert Groups with Summary Task Button. Why there is a similar functionality provided side by side? Are there any changes required in global template etc., to remove this problem?

      Thanks

      Ulhas, I’m not sure what happened or if you are describing out of box features but try this. Go to File / Options, and select the Customize Ribbon tab. On the bottom right there is a Reset / Reset all customizations. Hope this works…

      Thanks a lot. I tried that (reset). It was beneficial only for that session.

      I just used File->Options-> Customize the Ribbon and from the Pane on the Right hand side I removed those groups of commands which appear in duplicate. The problem is solved. The Ribbon does not have duplicate groups. However some groups like Insert are not available for customization. (These experiments I did after uninstalling MSP 2013 from my machine)

      Glad you figured it out, and unfortunately that you had to reinstall. Yes, some of the groups are hard coded because they do more than the (out of box) functionality.
