Quick Access Toolbar
Do you get tired of trying to find commands on the Ribbon in Microsoft Office 2010? You may want to give the Quick Access Toolbar a try! The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set
of commands that are independent of the tab on the ribbon that is
currently displayed. You can move the Quick Access Toolbar from one of
the two possible locations, and you can customize the QAT by adding buttons for the most commonly used commands for the Office applications you use every day.
Here is an example of where the Quick Access Toolbar is located in each Microsoft Office Application.
To learn anything and everything about the QAT, click here for Microsoft's resources on their website.
And as always, your School Tech is available to help and answer questions.
Does your Chromebook talk back?
There is an easy fix for this. The voice feedback is part of ChromeVox. ChromeVox is part of the Google Chrome operating system on all Chromebooks (hence the name!) Part of this is the spoken feedback option. This option is easily enabled by simply pressing the control+alt+z keys simultaneously so it can be easily enabled by accident. Good news this keystroke combo is a toggle for this feature. To disable the spoken feedback simply press control+alt+z keys and presto! It is off.
