Abstract

Modern-day applications often have so much functionality that if a user wanted to have toolbars showing for all the tasks that could be performed, those toolbars would steal a large portion of usable space away from the application. Described herein is a method to provide quick and easy access to all available toolbars without having them on the screen at all times. In addition, this mechanism provides the user with the ability to easily browse all available toolbar mechanisms should they not be familiar with the selections available.
