Microsoft OneNote - Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab on the ribbon that is currently displayed.

You can move the Quick Access Toolbar to two possible locations, and you can add buttons that represent commands to the Quick Access Toolbar.

One example of how to manage the Quick Access Toolbar:

Add a command to the Quick Access Toolbar that isn’t on the ribbon
At the top of your OneNote screen, click the Customize the Quick Access Toolbar (drop-down button), then click More Commands,

In the pop-up box, under Choose commands from the drop-down list, click Commands Not in the Ribbon (at the top of the pop-up box),

Click a command in the list, and then click Add (center of pop-up box),

Move to arrange with the up/down button (right-side of pop-up box).

Other examples of things you can do with the Quick Access Toolbar:

Move the Quick Access Toolbar
The Quick Access Toolbar can be located in one of two places:
  •          Upper-left corner       
  •      Below the ribbon

Reset the Quick Access Toolbar to the default settings (bottom-right of pop-up box – see screen shot below):

Right-click the Quick Access Toolbar, and then click Customize the Quick Access Toolbar on the shortcut menu.

In the Customize the Quick Access Toolbar window, click Reset Defaults, and then click Reset only Quick Access Toolbar.



Note:
You cannot increase the size of the buttons representing the commands by an option in Microsoft Office. The only way to increase the size of the buttons is to lower the screen resolution you use.

You cannot display the Quick Access Toolbar on multiple lines.

Only commands can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. The contents of most lists, such as indent and spacing values and individual styles, which also appear on the ribbon, cannot be added to the Quick Access Toolbar.

However, you can customize the ribbon to personalize the ribbon the way that you want it. For example, you can create custom tabs and custom groups to contain your frequently used commands.
