Add Tools in Microsoft Office Programs

Posted in Did you Know? on July 6, 2007 by

There are many more tool buttons available in Microsoft Word for toolbars. For example, one of my favourite Font styles is SMALL CAPS. Normally, to apply this font style, one would choose Format menu > Font. Under the Effects section of the Font dialog box, place a checkmark in the box for the Small Caps, then click OK.
A button for Small Caps can be installed right on your formatting toolbar. Right-click on any toolbar and choose Customize from the menu. In the customize dialog box, activate the Commands tab. Select the format category on the left. Scroll down the Commands list on the right until you see the choice Small caps. Drag this button to the formatting toolbar and drop it to the right of the Underline button. Close the Customize dialog box.
You now have a button for Small Caps, and no longer have to use the lengthy 4-step menu choice described above. Other useful buttons include Grow Font 1 pt, which allows you to select a whole document with various font sizes, and with one button, you can increase each font size by 1 point.
Extra tools are also available in Excel, PowerPoint, and Access as well. The method is the same for each package in Microsoft Office Suite.
