Save time with the Quick Access Toolbar

While Word 2007 has done away with toolbars, they have given us the Quick Access Toolbar. The Quick Access Toolbar is situated on the title bar, right next to the Office button. It allows users to place frequently used commands within easy reach so that tools that are added to the Quick Access Toolbar can be accessed quickly and efficiently even when the ribbon is hidden.

The Quick Access Toolbar can be placed above or beneath the ribbon area and is always visible. To move the Quick Access Toolbar below the Ribbon, click the small drop-down arrow next to the Quick Access Toolbar and select Show Below the Ribbon.

There are three ways to customize the Quick Access toolbar:

  • You can right-click any command on the Ribbon and choose Add to Quick Access Toolbar from the menu.

  • Click on the drop-down arrow beside the Quick Access Toolbar and select any command you want to install simply by clicking on it.

  • To view more options that you may want to add to the Quick Access Toolbar, click the arrow beside the toolbar. Choose More Commands. From the Menu, find the command you want to add. Select it and click Add.

To remove a command from your Quick Access Toolbar: right-click the command icon on your Quick Access Toolbar and choose Remove from Quick Access Toolbar.
