Quick Access Toolbar (QAT)

Definition - What does Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) mean?

The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) is a Windows Office feature that contains a set of predefined or commonly used commands that may be used and generated across all environments. By default, the QAT is located in the upper left-hand corner of an Office application and may be displayed either above or below the ribbon. A user may relocate the QAT by clicking the drop-down arrow located to the right of the toolbar.

Techopedia explains Quick Access Toolbar (QAT)

The QAT is fully customizable and allows its users to add or remove a command directly through the toolbar. Clicking the QAT drop-down arrow shows a predefined list of commands, including "New," "Open," "Save," "Print," "Print Preview," "Send In Email," "Undo" and "Redo." Each existing command on a user’s QAT has a check mark next to its name.

If a user wants to enable a command from the predefined list, he or she simply clicks to add or remove. If a user wants to add a QAT command that is not included in the predefined list of options, he or she may do this by right-clicking the command they want to add and selecting the option "Add to the Quick Access Toolbar." Similarly, a user may remove a command by right-clicking it and selecting the option "Delete from the Quick Access Toolbar." To view the entire list of customizable command options, a user must click the QAT drop-down arrow and select the "More Commands" option, which is the second-to-last item presented in the drop-down menu.
