Add Favourite Buttons to your Quick Access Toolbar

If you work in the type of office where you can’t install your own favourite productivity software due to strict IT policies, then it’s likely that Microsoft Office is already installed on your system. Microsoft Office is packed with features that can help you stay on top of things and get the job done.

Here is a useful tip:

Add Items from the Ribbon to your QAT

The Quick Access Toolbar is designed to put the tools you use most often at your fingertips. You can add or remove tools from this QAT in a number of ways. In past newsletters we’ve shown one or two ways to do it. Here’s another:

This is our Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) at the start…



Right-click on any command on the Ribbon. The top option allows you to send this item to the QAT.

In this screenshot we’ve gone to the “Insert” tab along the ribbon and then right-clicked with our mouse on the “Table” command. The menu that appears allows you to ‘Add to Quick Access Toolbar’

Once you’ve done that the command will be available to you on your QAT no matter which ribbon tab you’re currently working with.

If you’d like to remove it again simply right-click on that command in the QAT and the option to remove is available.
