Adding tools to the toolbar
Adding tools to the toolbar
You get three tools to start with on the Quick Access Toolbar: Save, Undo, and Redo. These
are undeniably heavily used commands, but you perform other tasks often too and might
like to have them just a click away, readily available regardless of which ribbon tab is
currently visible. It’s easy to customize the toolbar, and you have a couple of ways to do it.
Adding tools as you work
If you find yourself continually returning to the same tab on the ribbon and using a
particular command, you might consider adding it to the Quick Access Toolbar. The easiest way
to do this is to right-click the command to display the shortcut menu shown in Figure 3-12.
In Figure 3-12, we added the Switch Windows command to the Quick Access Toolbar
by right-clicking the command and clicking Add To Quick Access Toolbar. A button then
appears on the toolbar that looks similar to the command on the ribbon. Each new button
you add appears to the right of the previous button. Not all toolbar buttons are easy to
identify, but you can always rest the pointer on a button to display a ScreenTip
explaining its function, as shown at the bottom of Figure 3-12. If you add a lot of buttons, these
ScreenTips are indispensable.
Figure 3-12 Right-click any command or group, and you can add it to the Quick Access Toolbar.
