The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) is a customizable toolbar containing a set of commands that are independent of the tab that is currently displayed. It can be located in one of two places:
Upper-left corner above the ribbon (default location)
Note: In Office 2007 applications, the toolbar will be next to the Microsoft Office Button
Upper-left corner 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 above the ribbon is too far from your work area, you may want to move it closer to your work area. However, the location below the ribbon can encroach on the work area. So you may want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location to maximize workspace.
To move the toolbar below the ribbon:
Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar . It's located on the right end of the Quick Access Toolbar.
At the bottom of the list, choose either Show Below the Ribbon or Show Above the Ribbon as appropriate.
