I have outlook 2007 installed (12.0.6514.5000) on my work computer.

I just installed Bowie to allow integration with outlook and TFS.

Most of the features for that plugin are based on the Ribbon. But I don't have the ribbon. I have the old menu and toolbar structure.

How do I switch to the ribbon view?

Here is a screen shot of my outlook:

Ribbon Missing

Outlook 2007 does not have Ribbon in this view

Open a message, calendar entry or contact and you will see its Ribbon
