“Quick Access” Toolbar

We find the “Quick Access” toolbar at the top left on the application window.
The “Quick Access” toolbar gives us a way to execute a command with one click .

By default, the “Quick Access” toolbar has three buttons: “Save”, “Undo” and “Redo”.
The “Quick Access” toolbar is the only toolbar that we can customize in “Microsoft Access” 2007.
By clicking on the downward pointing arrow next to the toolbar, we can add commands.

The most commonly used commands appear in a drop-down list.

If you want to add a command to the “Quick Access” toolbar, then click the command in the list. You will see that this is now checked.  If you want to remove a command from the “Quick Access” toolbar, click the command in the list again to uncheck.
Or right-click the command in the toolbar and select “Remove from Quick Access Toolbar”.

Customize the “Quick Access” toolbar

This opens the “Access Options” dialog in the “Edit” tab:

All available commands in “Access” are found in these lists.  The commands are divided into categories. Click the downward pointing arrow to choose another category from the “Choose command:” drop-down list box.

Select the command in the right pane and click the “Add >>” button.
To remove a command, select the command in the right column and click the “Remove” button.

By clicking on the up and down arrows, you can change the location of the command in the “Quick Access” toolbar.

In the “Customize Quick Access Toolbar:”, you can choose whether you want these settings for all documents or just for the document in which you are currently working.
When you are finished with your settings, click the OK button.
