OK and Cancel Buttons- What's the Right Order?
By Tom Tullis
- Avoid using grouped buttons labelled as "OK" and "Cancel" on the web. There's too great a chance that your users may have a different expectation from yours about which button is which. If they're in a hurry, they might accidentally choose the wrong button.
- It's probably better to use buttons that are visually separated.
- With the buttons visually separated, putting the action to continue (e.g., OK, Save, Submit, etc) on the right is more likely to match your users' expectations.
