  2. Select Customize Ribbon in the left pane to bring up 2 columns in the right pane.
  3. Select Main Tabs in the Customize the Ribbon box on the right column.
  4. Click Home under the Main Tabs box and click New Group button.
  5. Click Rename... button and name the group as Combine Shapes.
  6. Select All Commands in the Choose command from box on the left column.
  7. Locate and select Shape Combine and click Add >> button.
  8. Locate and select Shape Intersect and click Add >> button.
  9. Locate and select Shape Subtract and click Add >> button.
  10. Locate and select Shape Union and click Add >> button.
  11. Click OK button.

This would get you Combine Shapes tools in the Home tab:
