In Microsoft Office products, you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar. This allows you to quickly choose the tasks you use most often. For example when using Microsoft PowerPoint I am frequently adding new slides. To add a new slide I go to the Home tab or the Insert tab on the Ribbon. Instead of switching tabs I am able to customize the Quick Access Toolbar at the very top left of the screen to allow me to quickly add a new slide.
Drop Down Arrow
Choosing “More Commands” gives you a list of functions that you might do. Notice by default a list of “Popular Commands” is displayed. This can be changed to show “All Commands” or “Commands Not in the Ribbon.” Locate the function you frequently use and click on it. Click on “Add>>” to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar. Click “OK.”
