What happened to the Web toolbar?

The Web toolbar is not available in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, Microsoft Office Word 2007, or Microsoft Office Excel 2007. However, in these 2007 Microsoft Office system products, you can still access and use a few of the commands that existed on the Web toolbar.

The Address box is now called the Location box, and it displays Uniform Resource Locators (URL) (Uniform Resource Locator (URL): An address that specifies a protocol (such as HTTP or FTP) and a location of an object, document, World Wide Web page, or other destination on the Internet or an intranet. For example: http://www.example.com/.) or other paths, allowing you to copy links and share them with others. Although the Location box is available on the Document Properties panel on the Ribbon, which is a part of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, if you use it often enough, you might want to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar.

Other commands that were on the Web toolbar that you can still use in the 2007 Office release are the Back and Forward buttons, which you can add to the Quick Access Toolbar as well.
