The Quick Access toolbar appears to the right of the Office Button (refer to Figure 1-2) near the top of the screen, displaying icons that represent commonly used commands such as Save, Undo, and Redo as shown in Figure 1-9.
The Quick Access toolbar provides one-click access to the most commonly used commands.
Using the Quick Access icons
If you click the Save icon in the Quick Access toolbar, Office 2007 saves your current file. If you're saving a new file, a dialog box pops up, asking you to choose a name for your file.
If you click the Print icon in the Quick Access toolbar, Office 2007 immediately prints one copy of your entire file through the default printer. (If you want to specify a different printer to use, the number of copies to print, or specific pages to print, click the Office Button and choose Print instead.)
The Redo icon reverses the last Undo command you chose. For example, if you delete a paragraph, Office 2007 makes that paragraph disappear. Then if you immediately click the Undo icon, the paragraph magically reappears. If you immediately click the Redo icon, the Redo command reverses the Undo command and deletes the paragraph once more.
The Undo icon is unique in that it offers two ways to use it. First, you can click the Undo icon to undo the last action you chose. Second, you can click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the Undo icon to display a list of one or more of your previous actions, as shown in Figure 1-10.
The Undo icon displays a
Actions you can undo.
The most recent action you chose appears at the top of this list, the second most recent action appears second, and so on. To undo multiple commands, follow these steps:
1. Click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the Undo icon in the Quick Access toolbar.
2. Move the mouse pointer to highlight one or more actions you want to undo.
3. Click the left mouse button.
Office 2007 undoes all the multiple actions you selected.
