How to Add Command Buttons to the Word 2007 Quick Access Toolbar

You're free to add command buttons to the Word 2007 Quick Access toolbar: these can be popular commands you use often, commands missing from the Ribbon, or commands that add a festive and tasteful touch to Word's interface.

There are two ways to add a command to the Quick Access toolbar. The easiest way is to right-click a command button on the Ribbon (or just about anywhere in Word) and choose Add to Quick Access Toolbar from the shortcut menu.

The second way to add a command to the Quick Access toolbar is to use its menu. The top several items in the menu are common commands that most folks would enjoy having on the Quick Access toolbar. To add a command, simply select it from the menu.

Not all the commands in Word are listed on the Quick Access toolbar's menu. But that doesn't mean that those commands are excluded. Simply choose the More Commands item from the menu to display the Word Options dialog box. Here, you can use the Customization area to add commands to the toolbar.

You can choose the All Commands item from the Choose Commands From menu to view every possible command in Word. Sometimes, a missing command that you think could be elsewhere ends up being available in the All Commands list.

When you're done making additions, click OK to close the Word Options dialog box and return to Word. Your changes appear in the Quick Access toolbar.
