Customizing the Arrange Toolbar

You can customize the Arrange toolbar by adding buttons for the commands you use most often. You can also configure the display to show only the button icons, or only their labels.

    If you drag a button to a location between two existing buttons, they move to make space for the new button.

    Note: You can also drag the entire default set from the bottom of the Customize Toolbar dialog, if your customizations don’t work out as well as you’d hoped.

  3. Click Done when finished.

To remove a button from the Arrange toolbar
  • Control-click (or right-click) the button you want to remove, then choose Remove Item from the shortcut menu.

To change the appearance of toolbar items
  • The shortcut menu and Show menu in the Customize Toolbar dialog also allow you to view toolbar items as Icon & Text, Icon Only, or Text Only. Simply choose your preferred viewing option.

When you resize the Arrange window, the toolbar may not offer enough space to keep all buttons visible.
