Creating and Customizing Toolbars

Toolbars display commands without taking up much space. However, if you display several toolbars and each one includes commands you don't use, you give up screen area that you might prefer to use for the Gantt Chart or other project information. You can keep the space that toolbars take to a minimum by customizing existing toolbars or creating your own.

Tip Display toolbars on one row or two

You can display the Standard and Formatting toolbars on one line to reduce the space that these toolbars use. Right-click in the toolbar area and then click Customize. In the Customize dialog box, click the Options tab. Clear the Show Standard And Formatting Toolbars On Two Rows check box.

If some of the commands you want don't appear when these toolbars share a row, click the Toolbar Options arrow on the right end of the toolbar and then click the toolbar button you want.
