Chapter 1. Getting Started with Excel > Working with Menus and Toolbars

Working with Menus and Toolbars

All Excel commands are organized on menus on the menu bar, and each menu contains a list of related commands. A short menu displays often used commands, and an expanded menu displays all commands available on that menu. A menu command followed by an ellipsis (...) indicates that a dialog box opens, so you can provide additional information. An arrow to the right of a command indicates that a submenu opens, displaying related commands. An icon to the left means a toolbar button is available for that command. Toolbars contain buttons you can click to carry out commands you use frequently. A keyboard combination to the right of a menu command indicates a shortcut key is available for the command.

Choose a Command Using a Menu

Click a menu name on the menu bar to display a list of commands.

If necessary, click the expand arrow to expand the menu and display more commands, or wait until the expanded list of commands appears.

Click the command you want, or point to the arrow to the right of the menu command to display a submenu of related commands, and then click the command.
