Adding Fonts To the Context Menu

Many people like to do their editing using the Context menus that appear when you right-click on an item. (In Word terminology, Context menus are also referred to as Shortcut menus.) If you find yourself changing the fonts of your text quite a bit, you can add your favorite typefaces to the Context menu that pops up when you right-click on text. This can save you a bit of mouse movement or a trip through the Font dialog box.

To add your fonts to the text Context menu, follow these steps:

Choose Customize from the Tools menu. Word displays the Customize dialog box.
Make sure the Toolbars tab is selected. (Click here to see a related figure.)
Scroll through the list of toolbars, and select the Shortcut Menus item. A floating Shortcut Menus toolbar appears.

The toolbar has three items on it. These items represent the three categories of Shortcut menus used by Word.

Click on Text, then choose Text from the drop-down list. This displays the actual Shortcut menu that appears when you right-click on text within your document.
Within the Customize dialog box, click on the Commands tab. (Click here to see a related figure.)

Using the Categories list, choose Fonts.

Using the Commands list, drag font names to the position where you want them to appear on the Shortcut menu.

Repeat step 8 for each font you want on the Shortcut menu.

Close the Shortcut Menus toolbar.

Click Close in the Customize dialog box when you are done.
