This setting is useful if you have added many commands to the quick access toolbar. More commands display, by default, when the quick access toolbar is below the ribbon.

Customize the Quick Access Toolbar to display all the commands you frequently use. Then, display the

Quick Access Toolbar below the ribbon bar. When the ribbon bar is minimized, it appears that all of your

commands are in a single toolbar, ready to create exactly what you want with a single click.
