Customizing Word 2007’s Toolbar

After the upgrade to Word 2007, some of my favorite toolbar icons went missing.  Where’s the “Print Preview” icon?  Where’s the “Print” icon?...  If you have similar questions, not to worry.  Here’s how you can tailor the toolbar to your needs.


The zone to the left of the Office button is called the Quick Access Toolbar.

Click the down arrow associated with the Quick Access Toolbar
  1. Select the More Commands option.
  2. By default, this opens to the Popular Commands selection pane
  3. Highlight a command from the list and then click the Add button. Repeat the highlight/Add process for anything else that you want to add.
  4. Click the OK button after you’ve made all the selections of interest

Don’t see the icon you’re looking for?  Click the down arrow associated with Choose commands from and select a category other than Popular Commands.   If you don’t want to sort through each category, there is also an option called All Commands

Another way to get buttons on the toolbar is to right-click a button on the Ribbon and select Add to Quick Access Toolbar. If you have just spent 3 minutes looking for a button and think you might forget where it is next time around - this method could be a real timesaver!
