As I’m sure you are already aware, many of the buttons you were used to in previous versions of Office have seemingly gone missing in 2010. But never fear! They are all still in there, you just might have to go and get them.
One easy way to bring all your favorite buttons out from their hiding places is to put them on the Quick Access Toolbar. The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that can hold exactly the commands you want and it will always be there for you when you’re ready. Based on your prference, you can put the Quick Access Toolbar either above or below the ribbon.
