How to Disable the Mini-Toolbar in Word

Posted by Roger Hyttinen on

the Mini-Toolbar

When you select text in Microsoft word, by default the Mini-Toolbar appears. The Mini-Toolbar displays whenever you right-click on selected text and provides quick access to common formatting commands such as bold, italic, font color, font type, font size, fill color, increase indent, decrease indent and increase/decrease font size.

While this toolbar can be convenient, it can also be cumbersome, especially if you’re trying to move text around on your document using click-and-drag. Luckily, you can turn it off from the Word Options window if you find it irritating or otherwise distracting.

To Turn Off the Mini-Toolbar

  1. Click the File tab on the Ribbon.
  2. Click Options in the left pane.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Show Mini Toolbar on selection to uncheck it.

  4. Show mini-toolbar option in the Options window
  5. Click OK.

Tip: You can temporarily display the Mini-Toolbar by right-clicking on highlighted text, even if you have it turned off.
