Toolbars in the Microsoft Word office software consolidate functions in one place so that the user does not have to visit the menus every time. The Word toolbars provide an efficient and quicker way of working. It is possible to customize Word toolbars according to user's needs and preferences. A custom toolbar can contain various functionalities in one place which are not normally placed together. For example, formatting functions can be added to the same toolbar as the drawing functions for ease of working. The custom made toolbar can be made available for a template so that all documents have access to the new customized Word toolbar.
