Show, hide, move, or dock a toolbar

Microsoft Expression Web automatically customizes toolbars based on how often you use the toolbar buttons. If there isn't enough room to display all the buttons on a toolbar, the buttons that you have used most recently are displayed. When you use a button that is not displayed on the toolbar, that button is moved to the toolbar, and a button that has not been used recently is dropped to the Toolbar Options list.

To find a button on a toolbar

  • Click Toolbar Options Cc295491.3c1e26d7-7bb1-4a51-ab65-1e6c6c37767e(en-us,Expression.10).gif at the end of the toolbar.

    If you can't find a toolbar button, you may need to enable editing for the language that the button applies to.

To show all the buttons on a toolbar

  • Use the move handle Cc295491.2d08aac0-823a-428e-b84b-37359fb1e960(en-us,Expression.10).gif on the toolbar to drag the toolbar to its own row. You can also move the toolbar to a location other than the edge of the program window so that the toolbar becomes a floating toolbar.

When you dock a toolbar, this might affect the location and size of other toolbars on the same row.
