Click, Click: Toolbar Docked

Click, Click: Toolbar Docked

As I’m sure many of you know, in an MS Office Suite program, you can choose to constantly display a “floating” toolbar by dragging it into the outer edges of the program window.

The toolbar then loses its window title bar and is what we call “docked” on either the top, bottom, left or right of the window.

Well, here’s a handy little feature: you open the program and voila! All toolbars you had docked are still open and awaiting your command.

To dock a toolbar, you could simply click and hold on the toolbar’s title bar and then drag it to the desired location, releasing the mouse button when it’s placed to your liking.

That’s an efficient way to go, but if you’re just going to place it at the top with all the other toolbars, there’s a slightly faster way.

Next time, try a double click on the title bar.

Poof! The toolbar is instantly docked. No fuss, no muss!

Of course, if you don’t like its docked location, you can always click and hold on the vertical bar to the left of the toolbar…

…and then drag it to your preferred location. (The double bars for vertically docked toolbars are located at the top of the toolbar).

It’s as easy as that. Click, click and you’re docked!

Click, Click – Toolbar Docked

As I’m sure many of you know, in an MS Office Suite program you can choose to constantly display a “floating” toolbar by dragging it into the outer edges of the program window.

The toolbar then loses its window title bar, closing box X and is what we call “docked” on either the top, bottom, left or right of the window.

Handy little feature – you open the program and voila! All toolbars you had docked are still open and awaiting your command.

In addition, to dock a toolbar you could simply click and hold on the toolbar’s title bar then drag it to the desired location, releasing the mouse button when it’s placed to your liking.

An efficient way to go – but if you’re just going to place it at the top with all the other toolbars then there’s a slightly faster way.

Next time try a double click on the title bar.
