Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is one of only two toolbars supplied with Excel 2007. It can be customised to improve your productivity, and limit the clicking between tabs on the ribbon.

By default it contains the Save, Undo and Redo icons. A good start, but you will probably find yourself adding to this list.

Let's add the Copy button on there.

  1. Click the Customise Quick Access Toolbar arrow on the end of the toolbar.
  2. A list of recommended additions appears. Copy is not in the list, so let's click More Commands and find it.
  3. Customising the Quick Access Toolbar

    The Customise area of the Excel Options dialogue box appears. It currently shows popular commands that we may wish to add, however once again the Copy button is not in the list.

  4. Click on Popular Commands and then the Home tab, as we know that the Copy button is on the Home tab of the ribbon.
  5. Customise in Excel options

  6. Scroll down the list until you see Copy. Select Copy and click Add to add it to the bottom of the list on the right. If you wish to change the order of the Quick Access Toolbar buttons, you can do so with the two arrows to the right of the list.
  7. Add button to Quick Access Toolbar

  8. Click Ok and you should see our new button on the Quick Access Toolbar. That will save us time when copying in future.
