Working with Toolbars

Working with Toolbars

A toolbar contains a collection of buttons you click to select frequently used menu commands. Most programs open with a Standard toolbar (with commands such as Save and Print) and a Formatting toolbar (with commands for selecting fonts and sizes) side by side. You can also display toolbars designed for specific tasks , such as drawing pictures, importing data, or creating charts . If you're not using a toolbar or want to reposition it, you can dock it to the edge of a window or allow it to float in a separate window. The toolbars are personalized as you work, showing only the buttons you use most often. Additional toolbar buttons are available by clicking the Toolbar Options list arrow at the end of the toolbar.
