The main toolbar in OpenOffice.org, which appears on the left side of the screen, has many of the frequently used OpenOffice.org commands. Some buttons on the main toolbar lead to a fly-out toolbar, which you can turn into a floating toolbar. To do so, click the main toolbar Insert button and hold down the mouse button for a second. Then, simply drag the fly-out toolbar from its title bar to anywhere on the screen.
