Chapter 13. Increasing Efficiency > Customizing a Menu

Customizing a Menu

The first time you start Word, the menus on the menu bar list only the basic commands. For example, the File menu lists the New, Exit, Save, Save As, and Print commands, but not the Versions and Properties commands. To see the full menu, you can click the chevrons at the bottom of the menu, or simply wait a few seconds until Word expands the menu for you. As you work, the menus adjust so that the commands you use most often appear on the short menus—in other words, Word arranges your menus to suit the way you work.


Tip

To show only long menus, not shortened menus, click Customize on the Tools menu, click the Options tab, and select the “Always show full menus” check box.
