How Do I Add Copy & Paste to the Toolbar?

by Paul Ramone

Adding toolbars in Microsoft Word is simple and enables you to quickly perform various functions without having to search through menus. Among the most useful functions is the copy-and-paste function. By adding it to the toolbar, you can access it easily and greatly increase your word processing productivity.

Open Microsoft Word. You may have a desktop or quick-launch icon for this program for easy access. If not, select "Start," then navigate to "Programs," "Microsoft Office" and "Microsoft Office Word."

Open a new or saved Word document.

Select "View" from the menu on the top of the window, then select "Toolbars." Choose the "Standard" option. The copy-and-paste toolbar will appear just below the top menus.
