Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar
Customizing the Quick Access Toolbar
The Quick Access Toolbar is a place where you can put buttons
for frequently used commands. This makes it easy for you to
reach them no matter which tab is selected on the ribbon. It’s
very easy to add and remove buttons on the Quick Access Tool-
bar. You can add any command or group that appears on the
ribbon and many more that don’t appear there.
Although the Quick Access Toolbar initially sits in the title bar
above the ribbon, you can move it below the ribbon. In that
position the toolbar is closer to your document, and it can hold
more buttons.
