Most users know that right-clicking a menu or toolbar displays a list of available toolbars. Displaying the Customize dialog box is just as easy, if you know the right click!
Just about everyone knows that you can display a list of toolbars by right-clicking any menu or toolbar. I guess I'm showing my age to confess that I've been using that trick for years. The truth is, I don't mind admitting that I'm an old dog, but in complete defiance of the adage—I can learn new tricks. (My problem is remembering them!) Recently, I learned that double-clicking a menu or toolbar also works a bit of quick magic. Doing so displays the Customize dialog box. I found this little gem completely by accident and I wondered… how come I don't know about this???? It's not a huge insight, but does just goes to show that the Office suite still has a few surprises, even for us old dogs who think we've already seen it all. The next time you run across a new tip, by accident or not -- share it with us!
