Word: Transferring the QAT to another PC

June 17, 2011

Did you know you can transfer your custom Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) in Word 2007 or Word 2010 to another PC that has the same version of Word on it?

Full instructions on how to do so for Word 2007 and Word 2010 are on the ever-helpful WordTips site: http://wordribbon.tips.net/T009920_Copying_the_Quick_Access_Toolbar.html

Note: When I searched for the Word.QAT file on my client’s Vista laptop (Word 2007 installed), the Vista search couldn’t find it at all, even though I tried several search methods. However, the file was listed under the file path mentioned in the WordTips article above, so I was able to copy it from there.
