The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab that is currently displayed.
The Quick Access Toolbar can be located in one of two places:
Upper-left corner next to the icon for a Microsoft Office program, for example, next to the Word icon . (default location)
Below the ribbon.
If you don't want the Quick Access Toolbar to be displayed in its current location, you can move it to the other location. If you find that the default location next to the program icon is too far from your work area to be convenient, you might want to move it closer to your work area. The location below the ribbon encroaches on the work area. Therefore, if you want to maximize the work area, you might want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location.
Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar .
In the list, click Show Below the Ribbon or Show Above the Ribbon.
