Quick Access Toolbar
The Quick Access Toolbar , located by default above the Ribbon, provides easy
access to frequently used commands (Figure 1–22a). The commands on the Quick Access
Toolbar always are available, regardless of the task you are performing. Initially, the Quick
Access Toolbar contains the Save, Undo, and Redo commands. If you click the Customize
Quick Access Toolbar button, Access provides a list of commands you quickly can add to
and remove from the Quick Access Toolbar (Figure 1–22b).
You also can add other commands to or delete commands from the Quick Access
Toolbar so that it contains the commands you use most often. As you add commands to the

the title bar. For this reason, Access provides an option of displaying the Quick Access
Toolbar below the Ribbon (Figure 1–22c).

Access displays a dialog box with additional options. The Save As, Print, Manage, and
Publish commands have an arrow to their right. If you point to this arrow, Access displays
a submenu , which is a list of additional commands associated with the selected command
(Figure 1–24). For the Save As, Print, Manage, and Publish commands that do not display
