Part IV: Going Beyond the Basics > Customizing Excel

Chapter 12. Customizing Excel

In this chapter

  • Adding buttons to and removing buttons from Excel’s toolbars.

  • Creating your own custom toolbars.

  • Rearranging items on Excel’s menus.

  • Changing Excel’s default settings to settings you use more commonly.

  • Installing additional features from the Excel or Office installation CDs.

Excel features a complete menu system and several toolbars to make its commands easily accessible. Few users are aware, however, that they have the freedom and power to restructure the menus, rearrange toolbar buttons, and even create their own custom menus and toolbars. Excel also uses a collection of default settings that control where it looks for workbook files, which font to use, how to display worksheets, and how it performs a host of other tasks. By changing these settings and customizing Excel’s work environment, you can tune in Excel to the way you work and save yourself some time in the long run. This chapter shows you just what to do.
