Quick Access Toolbar
Many people don’t realize that you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar with more than just the basic buttons.
In fact, you can add almost any command you want.
Take a look at all these buttons:
Adding your own is easy!
Click the downward-facing arrow at the end of the Quick Access Toolbar to get started.
From there, you’ll see a list of commonly used options that you can add to the toolbar.
Click on any of the commands to add that particular command to the toolbar.
(Here, we’ve clicked the Spelling option).
That’s all there is to it!
You can add tons of new buttons for the things you use most often.
If you don’t see the function you want in the list, however, there are tons more hidden away in a menu.
Click More Commands… at the bottom of the list:
Now you’ll see a new menu that gives you hundreds of options.
When you first open the menu, you’ll be seeing popular commands.
But you can click the dropdown arrow to select Commands Not in the Ribbon, All Commands, Macros, or select from a number of smaller groups.
Each one will result in a different list of commands you can add to the Quick Access Toolbar.
To add a command, find it in the list, then select it and click the Add >> button.
You’ll now see it displayed in the right-hand list, and when you click OK, it will display in the Quick Access Toolbar.
Want to remove a button from the toolbar? Select it in the right-hand list and click the << Remove button.
To reorder the items, click one and use the up and down arrows to the right of the list to move it up (to the left) or down (to the right).
With these simple options, you can fully customize the Quick Access Toolbar to contain all the commands you use most often.
