View a whole menu Quickly

In the newer versions of MS Office, you may have noticed that the menus are set to only show the most recently used choices. I really like the feature most of the time but there are times when I just need to see the whole menu, especially when I’m searching for something.

By now most people have figured out that to see the whole menu you have to click on the double arrow located at the bottom of the menu.

But, did you know that there is a faster way?

When we click on a menu, we typically single-click to open the menu, then if we need to expand we go down to the double arrow and click again.

Next time, try double clicking on the menu name.

The second click should expand the menu to its full form avoiding the extra time of moving down to the double arrow.

So, to expand just remember to click – twice!
