Locate the toolbar or menu you want to modify in the large scrolling Commands list and click that toolbar’s or menu’s Show check box.

The toolbar or menu appears on-screen.


Click the Commands tab.

In the Categories list, select the category that contains the command or tool you want to add.

Then drag your chosen command or tool from the Commands list into position on the desired toolbar or menu. Repeat these steps until you’re done adding commands or tools.


Click OK to close the Customize Toolbars and Menus dialog.

To remove a toolbar button or menu item, drag the offending item off of the toolbar or menu and release the mouse button. When you do, the toolbar button or menu item will disappear.
