Customising the Office 2007, Office 2010 or Office 2013 Quick Access Toolbar

Even when people have been using Office 2007, Office 2010 or Office 2013 for some time, if they have taught themselves, they often miss some of the features which will make them more productive. One of these is customising the Quick Access Toolbar. This is located at the top left of the window and by default contains 3 buttons – Save, Undo and Redo.

You can add whatever buttons you like to this toolbar. If you click on the dropdown at the right of the toolbar, you will see various other commands.

Clicking on them will add the relevant button to the Quick Access Toolbar. If there are buttons not on that list you would like to add, click where it says More Commands. The Excel Options window opens with Popular Commands on the left hand side and those currently on the Quick Access Toolbar at the right. To add a button, select it on the left hand side and click Add to add them to the toolbar.

If there are other buttons you would like to add that you can’t see click the dropdown where it says Popular Commands and select All Commands. Select the required buttons, then click Add. When you have finished, click OK. The buttons are now on the Quick Access Toolbar. You will need to do this separately for each package within the Microsoft suite.
