Customize the Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab on the ribbon that is currently displayed. You can move the Quick Access Toolbar from one of the two possible locations, and you can add buttons that represent commands to the Quick Access Toolbar.


 Notes 

  • You cannot increase the size of the buttons representing the commands by an option in Microsoft Office. The only way to increase the size of the buttons is to lower the screen resolution you use.
  • You cannot display the Quick Access Toolbar on multiple lines.
  • Only commands can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. The contents of most lists, such as indent and spacing values and individual styles, which also appear on the ribbon, cannot be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. However, you can customize the ribbon to personalize the ribbon the way that you want it. For example, you can create custom tabs and custom groups to contain your frequently used commands.

Move the Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar can be located in one of two places:

  • Upper-left corner next to the icon for a Microsoft Office program, for example, next to the Word icon Program icon for Word 2010. (default location)
    Quick Access Toolbar in upper-left corner (default location)
  • Below the ribbon.

If you don't want the Quick Access Toolbar to be displayed in its current location, you can move it to the other location. If you find that the default location next to the program icon is too far from your work area to be convenient, you might want to move it closer to your work area. The location below the ribbon encroaches on the work area. Therefore, if you want to maximize the work area, you might want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location.

  1. Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar Button image.
  2. In the list, click Show Below the Ribbon or Show Above the Ribbon.

  • To help differentiate between your own customized ribbon and the default ribbon.
