Create a Custom Sub-Menu in MS Office

Dennis Faas's picture

Do you copy and paste a lot of information from the web?

If you do, then you probably know that it can be a real hassle to always click Edit -> Paste Special (when necessary) when using an MS Office application.

So why not just put that Paste Special in a sub-menu?

To do so:

  1. Launch any MS Office Application (MS Word, MS Excel, MS Frontpage, etc).
  2. Right-click any menu or toolbar and select Customize.
  3. Select the Commands tab on the Customize dialog.
  4. Select New Menu from the Categories list. 'New Menu' will appear in the Commands list on the right.
  5. Click and Drag it to the target menu, where you want it the new menu to appear as a sub-menu.
  6. Right-click it to display its properties, to set the caption.
  7. Click it to display the sub-menu itself (initially just a little box off the right): drag the sub-menu commands to it, from other menus or from the Customize dialog.
Now wasn't that easy?
