Chapter 1. Introducing PowerPoint 2002 > Design Corner: Rearranging Toolbars

Design Corner: Rearranging Toolbars

One of the nice things about PowerPoint is its flexibility. Even if you don't yet have strong knowledge of how to customize PowerPoint, you can still rearrange your basic work tools to better suit your needs—in just a few seconds. For example, you can easily arrange toolbars to make working with PowerPoint easier. Let's say that the Standard and Formatting toolbars currently appear on two separate lines at the top of your screen and the Drawing toolbar appears at the bottom. You'd like to have more screen space and make the drawing tools accessible in another location on the screen. To accomplish this quickly, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Tools, Customize and select the Options tab.

  2. Remove the checkmark from the Show Standard and Formatting Toolbars on Two Rows check box.

  3. Click the Close button.

  4. Drag the move handle on the left side of the Drawing toolbar to place it in a new location on the screen; it becomes a floating toolbar.

  5. To resize the toolbar to appear as a square or rectangle, pause the mouse pointer over the left or right edge of the toolbar and drag the toolbar edge when the pointer becomes a two-headed arrow.
