Find your favorite missing Word 2007 commands
Still learning the Ribbon? Don't worry--it gets easier. So easy, in fact, that soon you'll forget where things are in Word 2003. (I speak from experience here.)
Here's a cool feature to help you out if you find yourself hunting for a couple of missing commands that you really like in previous versions. Click the Microsoft Office Button to open the File menu and click Word Options. Click the Customize tab. Click the Choose Commands From arrow to display the range of choices, and click Commands Not in the Ribbon. There you go! A whole list of commands you don't currently find in the Ribbon as part of the normal Word 2007 UI. Scroll through the list and click the command you want; then click Add to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar, which appears in the upper left corner of the Word window. Now you can get ot the tool easily, anytime. (And if you want to remove the tool from the QAT at some later time, just repeat the steps given here and click the Reset button at the bottom of the Customize Quick Access toolbar List.
