IE7: How to Add Cut, Copy, and Paste to the Toolbar

   Posted January 29, 2007 by David Kirk in Internet Explorer IE7

Do you miss having your editing options one click away? This is how you can add those familiar options back within your reach.


Now this is different than putting the old File | Edit | View menu back on top of IE7.

This just lets you put the common editing icons like cut, copy, and paste onto your toolbar…

1. Right-click on a blank area of the toolbar.
2. Select Customize Command Bar
3. Select Add or Remove Commands
4. Move the buttons you want from the left column to the right column

5. Press Close when done.

    This is the Mac-daddy of instructions for adding the “cut-n-paste” icons back on your tool bar. I would encourage indiviuals to boomark or add this page to favorites for future reference. I can assure you will not be dissappointed.
