Windows 7: Add a custom macro menu to Word.

25 Apr 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Add a custom macro menu to Word.

In the previous blog, I mentioned bypassing Word’s built-in print options via a specialized printing macro. Now, the trouble with macros—if you have a lot of them—is access. Executing a Word macro requires five clicks unless you’ve assigned a shortcut. That’s a lot of steps to access an automated task!

If you have a lot of macros and a short memory (memorizing a lot of shortcuts is more troublesome than negotiating the macro menu structure) add a custom menu for quick access to the macros you use most often. First, add a new menu to the menu bar and then drag macros to the new menu, as follows:
  1. Launch the Customize dialog box by double-clicking a toolbar or menu, or by choosing Customize from the Tools menu.
  2. Click the Commands tab.
  3. Choose New Menu from the Categories list (the last option). Doing so will update the Commands list to the right.
