Working with Toolbars

Working with Toolbars

PowerPoint includes its most common commands on toolbars. Click a toolbar button to choose a command. When PowerPoint starts, the Standard and Formatting toolbars are at the top of the window aligned on a single bar, and the Drawing toolbar is at the bottom, unless you've changed your settings. 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. You can hide or display any toolbar, and you can move a toolbar around the screen so it's right where you need it.
