Customising and Using the Quick Access Toolbar

Microsoft Tips

Do you find yourself using the same actions and shortcuts in Outlook? The Quick Access Toolbar makes finding your frequent commands quick and easy. This useful feature is customisable, and you can choose from hundreds of available commands to add to your toolbar. Personalise your experience in Outlook and enjoy quick access to your most used features.

The Quick Access Toolbar isn’t limited to just Outlook – you can create shortcuts in apps across Microsoft 365, including Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. In most apps, the toolbar can be found in the top left corner, just above your main ribbon. But it doesn’t have to stay there. You can easily change the toolbar’s position, or even hide it.

The Quick Access Toolbar is a very useful yet underused tool in Microsoft Outlook, often because users don’t know where it’s located or how to use it. So, we’ve put together a quick video showing you how to use and customise the Quick Access Toolbar in Microsoft Outlook. The same method can be used to tailor your toolbar in other Microsoft 365 apps too.

Microsoft Outlook is more than just an email app. It’s a comprehensive email, calendaring and planning platform that’s designed to streamline your email communications and optimise your workday. Organise your inbox with automation capabilities so you can focus on the tasks that matter most. Stay connected with your teams via shared calendars and access all the features you need to manage emails, calendars, and contacts all from one central location.

If you’re an Outlook user and want to learn how to get more out of your email workspace, we’ve created a range of quick video tutorials on our YouTube channel. There you’ll also find quick tip videos for other apps including Microsoft Teams, as well as videos about our growing services and solutions portfolio.
