Menu Commands and This topic
The steps to carry out some action often involve menu commands. When I say select File, Openit
means to open the File menu and then select the Open command. Whether you do this with the
mouse or keyboard, or use the shortcut key instead of the menu, makes no difference.
Figure 2.6 shows Outlook’s three toolbars. This is how the toolbars look when you are working on
email. The toolbars are
n Standard: Displays buttons for most frequently used commands.
n Advanced: Displays buttons for advanced commands that are needed less often.
n Web: Displays buttons for Web-related commands.
If the Outlook window is too narrow to show the entire toolbar, some of the buttons will be hidden.
You can access these hidden buttons by clicking the down arrow at the right end of the toolbar.
Outlook’s three toolbars.
Note that at the left end of each toolbar is a vertical row of dots. You can point at these dots — the
mouse cursor will change to a 4-headed arrow — and drag the toolbar to any desired location. You
can dock the toolbar along any edge of the Outlook window. You can also display a toolbar as a
free-floating window anywhere on the screen. Figure 2.7 shows the Web toolbar free-floating
below the Outlook window. To move a free-floating toolbar, point at its title bar and drag.
To determine which toolbars are displayed, right-click any toolbar and on the menu that is
displayed, shown in Figure 2.8, check or uncheck the toolbars as desired. The Customize command
that you see on this menu is covered in Chapter 19.
