take a more detail look at the Desktop Tool Bar.
Normally has shortcut icons for
programs like MS Word, Access, Excel, CorelDraw, etc. Can be
used for file short Cuts as well but that is normally too many to
display. Microsoft has given you a
choice to add extra tool bars by clicking an icon to toggle between different tool bars. Tool Bar can be dragged and
reshaped across the top, floating or to the side or bottom by
grabbing "Office" and dragging it to the location of
choice. I like mine on the right side.

Right mouse click on
"Office" gives you a menu>>>
Note: the top portion of
menu indicates only the "Office" tool bar is loaded and
toggle not possible. Selecting one of the other tool bars will
load them and their shortcuts.
Note 4 tabs:
Tool Bar. View
"on top" because you want this displayed on top of any
windows you are running and not hidden. Other settings are self explanatory.
By checking the box in
the list, the icon will display on the tool bar. Removing the
check will remove the Shortcut from Displaying. By
selecting the name, and pressing the "Delete" button
will remove the shortcut from the system. Note: "Toobar"
box has "Office" displayed. This is the tool bar your
are working on. By selecting another toobar will have different
shortcuts. To Add a new Shortcut, select "Add File..."

toolbar named "Office". I don't like toggling. You
may have by checking the square box and customizing in the Button

one at a time. Click OK when done or your changes will not
Checked gives you a Toolbar with all the shortcuts on
QuickShelf gives shortcuts the Quick Shelf Folder and
it's content files
Stuff has been renamed from Web. It has all the
shortcuts to your web sites that you added to
has shortcuts to all your computer programs or
".exe" file types.
Accessories has short cuts to the computers accessory
files like calculator, Character Map and etc.
Recommend customizing your own toolbar by selecting
those files you commonly want to access as the toolbars by
default contain files you never use.
|Okay, I gave you
the functional highlights. Now add a new shortcut to the tool bar.
Add Notepad Application shortcut. Yeh, I know you may already have
it listed but let's pretend you don't and add the duplicate. Hint.
Applications all have an ".exe" extension. Go to the
"Find" utility and get the path and then return to the
customizing form and browse for it through the "Button
File..." button. It should be "C:\Windows\Notepad.exe" Do
you see it on the toolbar? Did you click OK to save your change?
Did you Check the box in the List?
Add a new toolbar and call it "My Stuff". Do you
see it on the toolbar? Did you click OK to save your change? Did
you Check the box in the List?
Now, Let's go back and change the
position of Notepad to be the first icon in the row.
Are you satisfied you know how to
customize the Toolbar? If so, let's go back and remove both
additions. Be sure to click OK to save changes.
