Add a command to toolbar and menu bar in Microsoft Expression Web 2

Toolbars are quite handy if used intelligently. Instead of browsing through the long menus and submenus before you find the right command, if you often use a command then why not add it on the toolbar.

To add commands to toolbars

 Right click on the toolbar and choose ‘Customize’. In the Customize window, switch to ‘Commands tab’ and click ‘Rearrange Commands’.

In the Rearrange Commands window choose the radio button next to ‘Toolbar’. Choose the ‘Common’ Toolbar and then ‘Add’.

In the ‘Add Command’ dialog box, choose the ‘Category’ (browse each if you do not know where you can find the command) and then the command to be added and then click OK. In this example we will add the ‘File…’ command to the Common Toolbar.

 add_cmd

Click ‘Close’, to exit the ‘Rearrange Commands’ window and again, to close the ‘Customize’ window.

To add commands to menu bars

In Rearrange Commands window (see above), choose the radio next to Menu bar. From the drop down menu choose the menu bar you want to edit. Then click on Add to launch the Add Command dialog box. Now browse the categories to find the command to be added to the menu bar and click OK. For instance choose to add the File… command. The new menu bar would look as follows:
