TIP The Quick Access Toolbar can host commands in the form of buttons, lists,
menus, or galleries—literally any command that exists in the program.
From the message composition window, display the Quick Access Toolbar page of
the Outlook Options dialog box. In the Customizations area, click Reset , and then
click Reset only Quick Access Toolbar .
In the Reset Customizations message box, click Yes to return the Quick Access
Toolbar to its default contents. Then click OK to close the Outlook Options dialog
box. The Quick Access Toolbar now displays only the default buttons for the
message window, but is still located below the ribbon.
CLEAN UP Reposition the Quick Access Toolbar if you want to, by clicking Show
Above The Ribbon on the Customize The Quick Access Toolbar menu.
Customizing the ribbon
Even if Outlook 2013 is the first version of the program you’ve worked with, by now you’ll
be accustomed to working with commands represented as buttons on the ribbon. The
ribbon was designed to make all the commonly used commands visible so that people could
more easily discover the full potential of the program. But many people use Outlook to
perform the same set of tasks all the time, and for them, seeing buttons (or even entire groups
of buttons) that they never use is just another form of clutter.
SEE ALSO For information about minimizing and expanding the ribbon, see “Personalizing
the Outlook program window” earlier in this chapter.
Would you prefer to display fewer commands, not more? Or would you prefer to display
more specialized groups of commands? Well, you can customize the ribbon in both ways,
from the Customize Ribbon page of the Outlook Options dialog box.
