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 add buttons that represent commands to the Quick Access Toolbar.

Move the Quick Access Toolbar
If you don't want the Quick Access Toolbar to be displayed in its current location, you can move it to the other location. If you find that the default location next to the program icon is too far from your work area to be convenient, you might want to move it closer to your work area. The location below the ribbon encroaches on the work area. Therefore, if you want to maximize the work area, you might want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location.
Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar Button. In the list, click Show Below the Ribbon or Show Above the Ribbon.
