Topic: Using Toolbars

 

Introduction.  Excel uses buttons and combo boxes on toolbars to give you an 
easy way to access frequently used commands. Most commands on the toolbars are 
also found on the menus. However, commands that appear on special feature 
toolbars, such as the Chart and Reviewing toolbars, do not appear on the menus.

 

Excel has numerous toolbars. Each toolbar has buttons that represent commands 
related to a specific feature. The number of toolbars that appear on the screen 
depends on the feature you are using or the task you are performing. For 
example, the Chart toolbar appears when you are working with charts. When you 
are finished with a particular feature or task, the corresponding toolbar 
closes. The Standard and Formatting toolbars always appear on the screen by 
default.

 

The Toolbars command appears on the View menu. The Toolbars sub-menu lists all 
of the Excel toolbars. Checked toolbars appear on the screen; unchecked 
toolbars do not.

 

You can use keystrokes to work with the buttons and combo boxes on the toolbars.

 

 

Exercise Objective.  In the following exercise, you will review the buttons and 
combo boxes on the Standard and Formatting toolbars.

 

 

Exercise: Reviewing the Standard and Formatting Toolbars

Complete the following six steps to review the buttons and combo boxes on the 
Standard and Formatting toolbars.

 

Step 1:  Press Alt to move the focus to the menu bar. JAWS  announces, "Menu 
File."

 

Step 2:  Move the focus to the Standard toolbar by pressing Ctrl-Tab until JAWS 
 announces, "New Button."

 

You have selected the first button on the Standard toolbar.

 

Step 3:  Press the Right Arrow key repeatedly to review each item on the 
Standard toolbar.

 

The Standard toolbar contains the following buttons: New Document Button, Open, 
Save, Mail Recipient (if e-mail is available), Search, Print, Print Preview, 
Spelling, Cut, Copy, Paste, Format Painter, Undo, Redo, Insert Hyperlink, 
AutoSum, Sort Ascending, Sort Descending, Chart Wizard, Drawing, Zoom, Help and 
Toolbar Options.

 

To activate any of the buttons on the toolbar, select the appropriate button. 
Then, use the Enter key.

 

Step 4:  Press Ctrl-Tab to move the focus to the Formatting toolbar. JAWS  
announces, "Font: Combo Box," followed by the active font for the active 
workbook.

 

Step 5:  Press the Right Arrow key repeatedly to review each item on the 
Formatting toolbar.

 

The Formatting toolbar contains the following buttons and combo boxes: Font, 
Font Size, Bold, Italic, Underline, Align Left, Center, Align Right, Merge and 
Center, Currency, Percent, Comma, Increase Decimal, Decrease Decimal, Decrease 
Indent, Increase Indent, Borders, Highlight, Font Color, and Toolbar Options.

 

Step 6:  Press Alt to move the focus off the Formatting toolbar.

 

The focus returns to the worksheet. JAWS  announces, "Leaving Menu Bar Blank  
A1."

 

 

What You Learned.  In this topic, you learned:

 

Excel uses several types of toolbars to display frequently used commands or 
commands related to a specific feature.

 

The Toolbars command appears on the View menu. The Toolbars sub-menu lists all 
of the Excel toolbars. Checked toolbars appear on the screen; unchecked 
toolbars do not.

 

If you want to use a button on a toolbar, press Alt to move the focus to the 
menu bar. Press Ctrl-Tab until JAWS  reads the first button on the appropriate 
toolbar. Then, press the Left or Right Arrow key until JAWS  reads the button 
you want to activate. Finally, press Enter to activate the selected button.
