Moving and Resizing Toolbars

Your toolbars normally attach themselves to the top of your program window. If you'd rather that they attach themselves to some other part of your program windowto the bottom, say, or the left or right sideit's easy to make it happen. You can even detach your toolbars and let them "float."

To move or resize a toolbar by using your keyboard, just follow these steps:

  1. Press ALT to select the menu bar.
  2. Press CTRL+TAB repeatedly to select the toolbar you want.
  3. In the toolbar, press CTRL+SPACE to display the Toolbar Options menu.
  4. Do one of the following:

Move a Toolbar

  1. Select the Move command, and then press ENTER.
  2. Use the arrow keys to position the toolbar. Press CTRL+ the arrow keys to move one pixel at a time. To undock the toolbar, press DOWN ARROW repeatedly. To dock the toolbar vertically on the left or right side, press LEFT ARROW or RIGHT ARROW respectively when the toolbar is all the way to the left or right side.

Resize a Toolbar

  1. Select the Size command (it's only available when a toolbar is undocked), and then press ENTER.
  2. Use the arrow keys to resize the toolbar.

When you're finished moving or resizing, press ESC.
