Adding Save-As Button to Word
Adding a Save-As Button, or any of a large number of other functional buttons, to Word 2007, Excel 2007 and PowerPoint 2007 is easy.
In an earlier article, I wrote about how to add a Save-As button to Word 2003, Excel 2003 and PowerPoint 2003. The process is different in Office 2007.Unlike Office 2003, Microsoft Office 2007 programs use the newer Ribbon interface.
Office 2007 has a new feature called the Quick Access Toolbar, located on the left side of the top “title bar” line of the program window.
In the image below, you can see the Quick Access Toolbar just to the right of the Office logo’ed orb (remember, that’s not just for looks — that’s also a button to access many functions within the program).
By default, if I recall correctly, the Quick Access Toolbar has the New Document, QuickPrint and UnDo buttons. I’ve added some more buttons to that.
The items in my Quick Access Toolbar are New, Save, SaveAs, a separator, QuickPrint, Print (that opens the print dialog box), another separator, Undo, Redo and PrintPreview.

About Terry Stockdale
Terry’s Computer Tips is a free, weekly, email, computer tips newsletter and a computer tips web site, too. Terry’s Computer Tips began with handouts that Terry Stockdale prepared for teaching workshops and classes at a local computer users group. These grew to a hobbyist web site on which he posted PC training articles and tips during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. In 2005, the Terry’s Computer Tips web site and weekly newsletter were born. Now in its eighth year, Terry continues publishing his free email computer tips newsletter each week.
