ARCHIVED: What is a toolbar?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Information here may no longer be accurate, and links may no longer be available or reliable.

A toolbar is part of a window, often a bar across the top, that contains buttons that execute commands when you click them. Many applications contain toolbars that you can customize so the commands you use frequently are readily available and easily identifiable. Many dialog boxes also contain toolbars.

For many applications, you can specify which toolbars are visible and what icons or text appear on the buttons; for details, consult the application's help screens or documentation.
