What is the Quick Access Toolbar?

A useful feature of a Ribbon-based application is the Quick Access Toolbar. It is located at the top left corner of the application near the round Application button and by default it contains icons for New, Save, Undo, and Redo. 


You can also choose to show the Quick Access Toolbar from below the ribbon. This places the toolbar right above the manager panels and graphics window, immediately below the ribbons for fast access to these commands.



You can add almost any command to the toolbar by simply right-clicking on an icon in the Ribbon and select "Add to Quick Access Toolbar".



Now that icon will always appear in the Quick Access Toolbar.



If you wish to remove it, simply right-click and select “Remove from Quick Access Toolbar”.
