More Quick Access Toolbar tools

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:

Customize The Quick Access Toolbar For Only A Single Document

The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) 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. You can also customize this QAT for only a single document while keeping your customizations intact in other documents.

Click on the ‘Customize Quick Access Toolbar’ arrow at the far right of the QAT.

Then select ‘More Commands…’ near the bottom of the menu that appears.


This will take you into the options section where you can choose to apply any customizations to all documents or to only the one you select from the pull-down list.

Beware that if you use the ‘Reset’ button down at the bottom of this screen that will apply to all documents in the program. So stay away from that one!

But you can customize the QAT, as described in some of our previous newsletters, using the controls above to add or remove commands of your choosing to the selected document only.

Our JN Software training courses are designed to help you unleash the power of whichever applications you need to use. We can provide the training to enable you to maximize your efficiency with Excel or Word or any other parts of the Microsoft Office suite.
