How to Create a Custom Toolbar in Word 2003

You can create a custom toolbar in Word 2003 to organize the commands you use most often or those you want to use for a specific task. The advantage of this is that once it’s setup, you can get the most from Word and not have to dig around looking for those hidden commands.

Here’s how it works:

1 On the Menu bar: 
Select Tools.
Select Customize.

2 In the Customize dialog box:
Select the Toolbars tab.

3 On the Toolbars tab:
Select the New button.

4 In the New Toolbars dialog box, enter the name you want. Select OK.

Your new toolbar appears on your screen.

5 In the Customize dialog box:
Select the Commands tab.

6 On the Commands tab you have two options:

To add a button to a toolbar

1. Select a category in the Categories box.
2. Drag the command you want from the Commands box to the displayed toolbar.

To add a built-in menu to the toolbar

1. Select Built-in Menus from the Categories box.
2. Drag the menu you want from the Commands box to the displayed toolbar.
3. Select Close.

I’m trying to figure out how to do this in Word 2007, without much luck so far. Will let you know if it gets to work.
