Here's our Microsoft Office Tip for.. January 4, 2005
Click Here to see a complete list of all of our previously released Tips!
Excel's menu commands may suit the masses, but if the commands aren't where you want them, just move them. First, choose Tools, Customize.
Click the Toolbars tab and select Worksheet Menu Bar. At this point, you can select any menu and move it just by using the drag-and-drop method. You can also move the menu's subheadings the same way. Just open the menu and move things around to suit you.
We do have one word of warning: When you change the menus and toolbars a lot, you make it much more difficult to use Excel on another system, unless that copy of Excel is customized the same way as yours. Additionally, anyone who tries to use your copy of Excel may be a bit lost.
Note: This tip will work with any Office based application, including Word, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, etc.
