Controlling Display of Toolbar Buttons in Excel

The Microsoft Excel application has a variety of toolbar buttons that perform different functions. By default, all of the toolbar buttons are displayed. However, there may be times when you want to hide some of the toolbar buttons, or only display certain ones. This can be accomplished by customizing the toolbar.

To customize the toolbar, first click on the Tools menu and then select Customize from the drop-down list. This will open the Customize dialog box. On the Commands tab, make sure that the Toolbars radio button is selected in the Categories list.

Now, all of the toolbars in Excel will be listed in the Commands list. To add a toolbar button to the active toolbar, simply drag it from the Commands list and drop it onto the toolbar. To remove a toolbar button from the active toolbar, click on it and drag it off of the toolbar.

You can also use the Customize dialog box to change the order of the toolbar buttons. To do this, simply click on a button and then use the up or down arrow buttons to move it to a different position. You can also create new toolbars by clicking on the New button. This will open a new dialog box where you can enter a name for your new toolbar.

Once you have customized your toolbar, you can control which buttons are displayed by using the Show/Hide Buttons command. This command is located on the View menu. When you select this command, a sub-menu will be displayed with a list of all of the available toolbar buttons. Simply select or deselect the check boxes next to each button to control its display.
