    Default Quick Access Toolbar

    How do I hid the larger toolbar above it which I find confusing to use, and then to expand the quick access toolbar, which at least I can use but is small?

    In passing, I find this Word 2007 a lot harder to use than the earlier Word versions and I've yet to see the advantages from the increased complication.

    Can you explain that a bit more. I am afraid I do not understand your problem. And what Operating System are you talking about - Vista, Windows7??

    Regarding Office 2007, you will find over time that it is a lot easier than 2003. I used both and can assure you that 2007 is miles better. Takes just a bit of patience and training to learn it.

    Windows 7 home edition.

    I just need to use about 12 commands and I'm trying to find a way of filtering the rest out. I know that the quick access toolbar is a partial solution. But it's small and towering above it is the "original" taskbar or toolbar that I want to hide. So I want the quick access toolbar more prominent so that I can see the icons I will need better. How?

    Although the above poster claims "I used both and can assure you that 2007 is miles better. Takes just a bit of patience and training to learn it," the fact seems to be that we don't all have two days to learn the new setup. Also, I still don't see reasons for the change, despite his assertion except that the layout looks more pretty. Finally, he offers no practical advice.

    What practical advice do you need. Something as simple as the ribbon should be clear in 10 minutes, not 2 days.
