So, this super quick tip shows you how to add or remove items from the quick access toolbar (or QAT). All in all, this lesson applies to versions of Office that have a QAT.
Overall, the QAT allows us to access commands that we use frequently. It is located either above or below the ribbon.
We use the right-click button often in this lesson. Moreover, it allows us to access shortcut menus and quickly display dialog boxes.
Before we get started, you may want to know how to show the QAT above or below the ribbon. Personally, we prefer below the ribbon. So, here is how to do it.
As a result, the QAT will appear above the ribbon, as part of the title bar.
Follow the same steps to put it back below the ribbon. However, you will select Show Quick Access Toolbar Below the Ribbon from the shortcut menu.
Now, we can get down to business.
Follow the steps below to add or remove items from the QAT.
So, you do not need to go through the above steps if you just want to remove an item from the QAT.
If you want to quickly remove a command from the QAT, then (1) right-click on a command and select (2) Remove from Quick Access Toolbar.
So, were you successful? If not, then give it another shot.
