Outlook 2013's Quick Access toolbar lets you keep a few icons for your favorite functions at the top of the screen so that you can use them anytime. When Outlook 2013 is freshly installed, only three icons appear on the Quick Access toolbar: Send/Receive, Undo, and Customize Quick Access Toolbar. You can customize the Quick Access toolbar to include commands that you use frequently, such as Print, Delete, and more.

To customize the Quick Access toolbar, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar icon.

    The icon is at the right end of the Quick Access toolbar. A drop-down list opens to show the most popular Outlook functions.

  2. Click the name of the function you want to add.

    An icon for the function you chose appears on the Quick Access toolbar.

Wasn’t that easy? If you really want to get your hands dirty, you can choose More Commands from the menu, which opens the Outlook Options screen, where you’ll see about ten more choices on the Popular Commands menu. Those commands include Print, Forward, and Undo.

You can click the words Popular Commands to reveal a list called All Commands. The All Commands list includes hundreds of choices, none of which is Eat More Ice Cream. What a letdown! But just about everything Outlook can do is represented in the All Commands list.
