Moving Toolbars in MS Office Applications

Moving Toolbars in MS Office Applications

Have you ever noticed that when you use the View menu, Toolbars choice to display various toolbars that some of them “float” in the document?

That is, some of them open in a position around the edge of the file and others seem to open on top of the document.

The question that may occur to you is, “What do I do with these toolbars to move them out of my way and yet still leave them displayed so I can use them”?

It turns out that the solution is easier than you think.

If it’s a toolbar that you always want displayed, just click and hold on the title bar and drag it to the side of the window.

You will notice that the program adjusts the document to make room for the toolbar. If you let go of the toolbar, it will drop into the location you have chosen.

Oops, you dropped it in the wrong place! What do you do now? (You just knew that would happen!)

Never fear. There’s a simple solution!

Click and hold on the double bar located either at the top (for toolbars on the sides of the window) or left of the toolbar (for toolbars located at the top or bottom of the window). Now drag it to wherever you really want it to be located and release the mouse button.

Now, I know what some of you are wondering.

Does this work with all the toolbars, including the ones that didn’t show up as a separate floating window?

Much to your relief, the answer is Yes!

Clicking on the double bars and then dragging the toolbar around works with all of them.

Time to arrange those toolbars to suit your needs!
