If you’re anything like me,  you love anything that enables you to do things more efficiently. (And who doesn’t like that?) So with that in mind, I’d like to share the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) that I use in PowerPoint.

The QAT is basically your own personalized toolbar that puts all your favorite and most used functions in a single, easy to access place. No more extra clicking to find the right tab or sub-menu!

Another cool thing about them is that you can share them with others. So here is mine. It will give you a big head start and you can always tweak this to suit yourself after you get it.

Go ahead and grab a copy. It takes about 2 seconds to import it and you’re off to the races! If you need instructions for importing this into your PowerPoint set up, you can get them here.

I got my own headstart from Bright Carbon , Tom Kuhlmann and slidor.

Here are a few other things you may be interested in if you start playing around with your own Quick Access toolbar. Note that this works the same way in other applications including Word, Excel, Articulate Storyline and others.
