View Menu? Who Needs The View Menu?

View Menu? Who Needs The View Menu?

Well… actually, for many things, we all do—but here’s an idea that frees you from the menus, if only for a few seconds.

How many times have you gone to the View menu, Toolbars choice and then selected the toolbar you need to display? (Or for that matter, how many times have I referred to that process?)

In my opinion, too many times.

So here’s a method to get around the menu that doesn’t require you to memorize a bunch of key combinations.

Next time you need to display (or put away) a toolbar put your mouse pointer over any toolbar and right click.

Yep, that’s it. Right click.


You should have a pop up menu of all toolbars—now use the mouse pointer to select or deselect the toolbar of your choice.

That’s it—no menus needed this time!
