Toolbar

To make it easy for you to get things done quickly, the toolbar displays the File page and other tabs with different commands. You can easily find the command you need by clicking the Tell me what you want to do… box (or press Alt +Q) near a bubble bubble on the menu bar and typing the name or description of the command you need.

If, however, you want to increase your productivity even further, consider customizing the toolbar to show your favorite commands, add the commands you use the most frequently, and even remove the ones you don’t use. Here’s how.
