Using Menus and Toolbars
4. Click the Cancel button to close the Bookmark dialog box.
5. Click Insert on the menu bar again to display the short, personalized menu. The Bookmark
command appears on the short, personalized menu because you have recently used it.
6. Press the Esc key on the keyboard twice to close the menu.
As you can see, the menu changed based on your actions. Over time, only the commands
you use frequently will appear on the personalized menu. The toolbars work similarly.
To use the personalized toolbars:
1. Observe that the Standard and Formatting toolbars appear side by side below the menu bar.
Trouble? If the toolbars appear on two rows, you need to reset them to their default
state. Click Tools on the menu bar, click Customize, and then click the Options tab in the
Customize dialog box. Click the Show Standard and Formatting toolbars on two rows check
box to remove the check mark. Click the Reset menu and toolbar usage data button, and
then click the Yes button to confirm you want to reset the commands. Click the Close but-

2. Click the Toolbar Options button
on the Standard toolbar. See Figure 9.

toolbars might be sized differently than the ones shown in Figure 9. Continue with Step 3.
3. Click the Show/Hide ¶ button on the Toolbar Options palette to display the nonprint-
ing screen characters. The Show/Hide ¶ button moves to the visible part of the Standard
toolbar, and another button may be moved onto the Toolbar Options palette to make room
for the new button.
Trouble? If the Show/Hide ¶ button already appears on the Standard toolbar, click
another button on the Toolbar Options palette. Then click that same button again in Step 4
to turn off that formatting, if necessary.
Some buttons, like the Show/Hide ¶ button, act as a toggle switch—one click turns on the
feature and a second click turns it off.
4. Click the Show/Hide ¶ button
on the Standard toolbar again to hide the nonprinting
