Chapter 38. Customizing the Toolbar, Menus, and Shortcut Keys

  • Find and store customized features

    Once you understand how Word stores and retrieves customizations, adding and modifying commands becomes a simple task.

  • Add, remove, and rearrange toolbar buttons

    Drag-and-drop functionality makes it easy to modify the toolbars so they meet your word processing needs.

  • Assign Word's built-in commands or your macros to a toolbar button

    Adding the commands and macros you use most often to toolbars makes them available with the click of the mouse.

  • Add or remove menus or commands

    You can create and remove unwanted menus and commands from any of your templates; you can even customize the shortcut menus.

  • Create custom shortcut keys or custom toolbars

    If you prefer to keep your hands on the keyboard, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to the commands you use most often.

Part of the power of Word 97 comes from its flexibility; you can change its shape to fit your work habits. You can create menus, toolbars, shortcut keys, and buttons that enable you to do things your way. You can add Word 97 commands that don't normally appear on the menu or toolbar. You can even assign macros that you create to commands, buttons, or shortcut keys.
