Chapter 6

Making the Office Programs Work Your Way

In this chapter, I'll show you how to make the Office programs work your way. You can put the commands you use most frequently on the Quick Access Toolbar, customize the toolbar, and customize the status bar so that it contains the items you find most useful. In Word, you can also create custom keyboard shortcuts so that you can give commands from the keyboard without having to reach for the mouse.

You can customize the Office programs further by setting the many options they offer. In this chapter, we'll look at how to set the most widely useful options shared among the programs. These are the General options and the options for controlling where and how you save your Office files.
