Lesson 3. Using Excel's Toolbars > Customizing the Toolbars

Customizing the Toolbars

If Excel's toolbars provide too few (or too many) options for you, you can create your own toolbars or customize existing toolbars. To customize a toolbar, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on any toolbar and choose Customize from the shortcut menu, or open the Tools menu and select Customize.

  2. If the toolbar you want to customize is not currently visible, click the Toolbars tab and select it from the list. The toolbar appears.

  3. To change the size of the toolbar icons, to turn on or off ScreenTips, or to change the animation of your menus, click the Options tab. On the Options tab, select the options you want to apply. For example, to make the toolbar icons larger, click the Large icons option.

  4. To add or remove buttons from a toolbar, click the Commands tab.

  5. To add a button to a toolbar, select its category. (For example, to add the Clear Contents button to a toolbar, select the Edit category.) You can add menus to a toolbar as well; you'll find them listed at the bottom of the Categories list. Once you've selected the proper category, click the command you want and drag it onto the toolbar, as shown in Figure 3.3.

    Figure 3.3. To add a button to a toolbar, drag it there.
