How do I move the quick access toolbar?
If you don’t want the Quick Access Toolbar to be displayed in its current location, you can move it to the other location. If you find that the default location next to Toolbar view name list is too far from your work area to be convenient, you might want to move it closer to your work area.
Therefore, if you want to maximize the work area, you might want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location. Click on the down arrow button in the top of the ribbon, then select Place Quick Access Toolbar below the Ribbon or Minimize the Ribbon.
