One of the easiest ways to customize Word 2007 to meet your own needs is to add the commands that you frequently use to the Quick Access toolbar. For example, if you frequently use the E-mail command, you can add it to the toolbar where it is easily accessible.

There are a few different ways of adding additional commands to the Quick Access toolbar. One way is to click the down arrow to the right of the Quick Access toolbar. However, there are a limited number of commands that you can add using this method.

Another method is to click the Office button, click Word Options, and then click Customize. From the dialog box that appears, choose the command you want to add from the left-hand side and click Add.
