Windows 7: Is there a way of keeping customisation in Office?

Is there a way of keeping customisation in Office?

Due to having had my laptop replaced I'm having to start afresh with a brand spanking new MS Office (2007).

I spent ages populating the "Quick Access Toolbar" on both Word and Excel with all the buttons I use most frequently (given Bill's insistence that The Ribbon is exactly what I want and therefore impossible to change!) and I now have to do it all over again!

Is this customisation of the QAT stored on a file somewhere that I can copy and re-use? This isn't the first time I've had to do this and it probably won't be the last - and it's a pain in the backside!

In simple terms though please as I'm no techie!!

Cheers,
Gaz

Just a quick further question. How often does Office save the QAT file?

Judging by the dates of those files – when you edit your toolbar.
