Word/Excel Tip: Resize Toolbar Text Buttons & Boxes
If you need to make room for additional buttons, you may want to decrease the size of some of the toolbar boxes, such as the Zoom, Font or Style boxes. Or, perhaps you'd like to increase the size in order to see the entire entry of each option in a dropdown list.
To change the width of a toolbar text button, text box or list box, choose Tools/Customize to display the Customize dialog box and enable toolbar editing.
Next, click on the toolbar box you wish to resize to select it. Then, move your mouse pointer over the right border of the button until the double-headed vertical arrow appears.
Next, simply drag the border to the right to increase the width of the box or to the left to decrease it. After you make the changes, close the Customize dialog box.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
